She’s ripped off her mask

(Fox News[1]) Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton caused an uproar late Friday after telling a fundraiser audience that half of Republican nominee Donald Trump’s supporters could be described as part of a “basket of deplorables.”

The former secretary of state, who described her own remarks as “grossly generalistic”, said Trump had bolstered people who are “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, you name it.” She did add that Trump’s other supporters are frustrated by hard times and merit sympathy.

“They are just desparate for change,” Clinton said. “They don’t buy everything [Trump] says, but he seems to hold out some hope that their lives will be different.

Clinton was speaking at an LGBT fundraiser in New York City, where she encouraged supporters to “stage an intervention” if they have friends considering voting for the Republican nominee.

Is this a “47%[2]” moment for Hillary? Probably not, because the media will be behind her on her smearing of citizens. And the media is stuck[3] on Trump’s Putin statements

One day after promising to be aspirational & uplifting, Hillary insults millions of Americans. #desperate[4][5]

Well, she didn’t say she would be like that for all Americans. Just for the ones who support her

(Breitbart[7]) “Just when Hillary Clinton said she was going to start running a positive campaign, she ripped off her mask and revealed her true contempt for everyday Americans,” Senior Communications Advisor for the Trump campaign Jason Miller said in a statement.

“Tonight’s comments were more than another example of Clinton lying to the country about her emails, jeopardizing our national security, or even calling citizens ‘super-predators’ – this was Clinton, as a defender of Washington’s rigged system – telling the American public that she could care less about them,” he said.

He said it was “truly deplorable” that Clinton signaled contempt for Trump voters in front of her wealthy donors.

“Clinton revealed just how little she thinks of the hard-working men and women of America,” he concluded.

Oh, no, she thinks a lot of them. How to make sure they are under her thumb, how to raise their taxes and cost of living, how to make sure they are good little underlings, and so on. You are all here to serve her.
