Democrats seen as becoming hysterical with Hillary's latest comment

She describes half the Americans who are supporting Trump as 'a basket of deplorables'

STRONGER? Hillary Clinton speaks to the media Thursday, the day before her controversial ‘basket of deplorables’ comment.

If Hillary Clinton and the Democrats are so confident of winning this election, why are they becoming more hysterical by the day?

“You can put half of Trump supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables,” she said Friday night in New York. “Right? Racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, you name it.”

The national polls are pretty much dead even right now. So Hillary just wrote off one-quarter of the U.S. population — 80 million or so Americans. Four years ago, Mitt Romney casually mentioned the “47 percent” who don’t work and he instantly became the world’s worst human being.

Hillary says much, much worse and ... nothing to see here, folks. Move along.

Remember, this is a woman who in 2010 described a former exalted cyclops of the Ku Klux Klan as her “mentor.” She has also repeatedly lauded Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, who wrote of her plans to use abortion to “exterminate the Negro population.”
