One of Hillary Clinton’s biggest gaffes in the 2016 election was calling millions of her fellow Americans deplorables. In an interview which aired this weekend, she confirmed that she has no regrets.

In an interview with CBS’ Jane Pauley, her first on a tour for her new book, “What Happened,” Clinton dismissed the idea that her comment, made at a Sept. 9, 2016, campaign event, had an impact on the outcome of the election.
“You can put half of Trump’s supporters in what I call a basket of deplorables,” Clinton said during that campaign event.
“Why do you think that word ‘deplorable’ was circulating in your mind?” Pauley asked Clinton.
“I thought Trump was behaving in a deplorable manner. I thought a lot of his appeals to voters were deplorable. I thought his behavior, as we saw on the ‘Access Hollywood’ tape was deplorable. And there were a large number of people who didn’t care. It did not matter to them,” Clinton said.
“You fed into that though, when you said ‘basket of deplorables,’ you energized…,” Pauley began to respond.
A defiant Clinton cut in: “No, but they were already energized.”
“But you offended some people who didn’t personally feel deplorable at all,” Pauley continued.

She’s so arrogant. And she clearly still has no idea why she lost.
