Hillary Clinton and Mitt Romney have something in common: they both dismissed a sizable portion of Americans during their race for the White House. For Romney, it was the 47 percent who “are dependent upon government.” You remember don’t you? It was all you heard about throughout the final months of 2012, and jabbering heads everywhere agreed the comment may have cost him the 2012 election.
Clinton’s dismissal, far more laced with invective than Romney’s, is focused on “half” of Trump’s supporters who she called “a basket of deplorables” during a Friday night tirade.
I bet she wishes she could Bleachbit that comment.
“You can put half of Trump supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables.” This from the woman who is seen as honest and trustworthy by 11 percent of Americans according to an August NBC poll. For perspective, that’s the same percentage of Americans who believe the moon landing was definitely fake or aren’t sure. According to a VoucherCloud.net study that the LATimes published in 2014, 11 percent of Americans think that (insert drumroll here) HTML is a sexually transmitted disease.
Whitewater, filegate, travelgate, lying under oath, obstruction of justice, pardongate, sex scandal after sex scandal, orgy island, Benghazi, servergate, foundationgate. An American history of the Clintons is nothing but scandals followed by indignant claims of innocence. The sort of claims that wag a finger back at the accuser and say, “shame on you for even suggesting such a thing.” From “I did not have sexual relations with that woman” to “I did not send classified material” the Clintons have shown the ability to lie to millions of people about matters of national security without compunction.
To this day, every time Hillary Clinton has the guts to face a real reporter she’s forced to add to her ever-growing Pinocchio count.
I hope the Paul Krugmans and Joe Scarboroughs of the world will be just as outraged with Clinton’s condemnation of Americans as they were with Romney’s. But the media outrage will likely fizzle out quick. After all, as far as most of the mainstream media is concerned, she was simply stating a fact. Election day is in November, there are 50 states, and Trump supporters are deplorables.
What happened to civil disagreement? What happened to those back-in-the-day liberals who used to say, “I don’t like what you say, but I’d die for your right to say it?” Now, in 2016, if you disagree with Hillary Clinton you’re a deplorable?
