I get the impression that Hillary was talking about the same people Barry was in 2008 when he made this condescending comment about people in flyover country:
"They get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations."
Only she kicked it up a notch: from condescending to flat out insulting.
"You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables," Clinton said to laughter from the "LGBT for Hillary" crowd. "The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic — you name it.”
So Barry started the trend of insulting half of American voters, Mitt Romney continued it, and Hillary slammed it home. And that, my friends, is precisely why the “basket of deplorables” is rejecting America’s elitist two-party ruling class.
Butt as long as we’re talking about a “basket of deplorables” let me tell you about another basket load of them, also in flyover. At the Friends of MOTUS Flyover Fest (FFF) to be exact:
That’s right; we’ve been bugged. I assume the NSA’s concept was to overwhelm us with millions of real mosquitos so we wouldn’t notice the “drone” dispatched to gather information from the FFF:
Well, it didn’t work. The “plant” was immediately identified and dispatched. Unfortunately that left us with millions of real mosquitos looking for blood donors. Which is when our hero stepped up. Mr. Northy alone was brave enough to face the vampire army and cooked our dinner of brats and burgers (served on Northy’s HOMEMADE! burger buns) while the rest of us relaxed comfortably in Mr. and Mrs. UNL’s air-conditioned hotel suite on wheels. Even the official tea trolley was moved indoors so as to avoid the wrath of the blood suckers.
So thank you Mr. Northy; you saved the rest of us from a fate worse than death.
Today we’re hoping to round up a flock of hungry migrant seagulls, issue them temporary work permits and have them do the work that Americans aren’t willing to do.
I’m sure everything will work out, as long as they leave when their work is done. Otherwise we’ll have a new problem to deal with.
Butt we’ll deal with that when we have to.
