The Trump campaign took the bait Hillary Clinton laid with her “basket of deplorables” comment about the racists, xenophobes, homophobes and other undesirables in America who support Donald Trump.
What Clinton has done is tie Donald Trump to David Duke. Let’s not forget he has an alt-right standard bearer for a campaign CEO in Stephen Bannon.
Clinton said at fundraiser in New York City, “To just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the ‘basket of deplorables.’”
The far right immediately pounced, accusing Clinton of impugning millions of Americans. Donald Trump thought this was gaffe would change the course of his campaign. Um, it did but not for the reasons he envisioned. This wasn’t Clinton’s 47% moment. In fact, the comment shifted attention to the white nationalists and racist elements supporting Donald Trump in large droves. Most becoming more emboldened with each passing day.
Clinton put Trump on the defensive. He has attacked and denigrated so many people in this country, it’s laughable that he is accusing Hillary Clinton on insulting Americans with her deplorables comments. He is demanding an apology for Clinton. Um, we are still waiting on his apology for going full birther against President Obama.
The Clinton campaign responded to Trump’s attacks over the deplorables comment:
Trump says "you can't lead this nation if you have such a low opinion for its citizens."

The fact is Donald Trump’s words and the actions of some of his supporters are making it hard for people to take him serious. Hillary Clinton was absolutely right when she said Donald Trump is easy to bait. Well, she just did it again and he fell for it.
I have one question for the media, when will they ask Donald Trump why he called 50 percent of Americans losers? Thankfully, MSNBC’s Tamron Hall called him out for it. Let’s see if others follow suit or they give him a pass.
Priorities USA, the pro-Clinton super PAC, released a brutal ad Then and Now, using Ronald Reagan’s words in comparison with Trump.
