Hillary Clinton just had her ’47 percent’ moment and maybe the biggest blunder of this entire election cycle, where she openly said that Donald Trump supporters were racists, sexists, homophobic bigots.
During a fundraiser in New York City Friday evening, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton described half of the Americans supporting Donald Trump as a “basket of deplorables” made up of “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic” people.
“You know to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables,” she said as the crowd laughed and applauded. “…the racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, you name it.”
Clinton said that it was unfortunate that Trump had given them a voice, citing “offensive mean-spirited rhetoric” on websites and Twitter.
“Some of those folks — they are irredeemable, but thankfully they are not America,” she said.

What’s even worse is that Hillary’s wealthy donors scoff and laugh at Trump supporters as they sit with their black-tie dinner and cocktails.
This is unbelievable.
