Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton committed a horrible blunder while addressing an elite crowd during a New York City fundraiser last night, calling half of Donald Trump supporters, “a basket of deplorables.”
“You know to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorable,” she said as the crowd laughed and applauded. “…the racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, you name it.”, said Clinton.

Would Hillary would put a gay vegan PhD student in the 'deplorable' basket or the 'not so deplorable' basket?#BasketOfDeplorables
