"Hillary Clinton made a terrible mistake on Friday night.
Speaking to a star-studded audience at a fund-raiser in New York, she inexplicably decided to abuse, denigrate and mock tens of millions of her fellow Americans.
‘You could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables,’ she sneered. ‘Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic – you name it.’
* * *
It was an astonishingly crass thing to say.
Far worse, I would suggest, than Mitt Romney’s infamous 47% gaffe during the last election campaign, when he suggested half the country were entitled victims.
Why? Because Hillary was directly, unequivocally, accusing vast swathes of Americans of being racist, sexist, gay-and-Muslim haters.

To make things even worse, it was made right in the heart of New York’s financial establishment, to a bunch of smirking, cheering Wall Street bankers and their like.
The very people, in fact, who Hillary’s critics claim have held an iron grip on her for decades and from whom she has taken a fortune in fat speaking fees.
So this was a very, very bad mistake."
Well, yes, but I admit I was taken aback by the fact that Morgan actually got something right, the man is a mincing lollyknob of the highest order, a buttplugged dandy with a British accent. So, getting anything right is miraculous.
Don't worry he can't maintain this status, he falls back to earth.
"The big question is why she made it?
How could someone so smart, so savvy, so wary of making dumb public statements, utter such wildly condescending words?
Well now we know the answer.
Hillary was sick."
Whut?! It was the pneumonia talking? Umm, no. Having had pneumonia twice, I guarantee the last thing on my mind was to stand up and bad mouth Americans, Canadians, Brits, or anyone else.
Here Morgan makes two mistakes. The first is believing that because Hillary essentially believes what he believes that she is smart, savvy, wary of making dumb statements, or uttering wildly condescending words. She is none of these things. She is undoubtedly intelligent, but smart, meaning having measured amounts of both intelligence, and common sense? No. There is no evidence of this. Benghazi, her endless lies to the public, and all of her core beliefs belie this.
His second mistake was giving Hillary the benefit of the doubt, her long history of accusing Americans of vile things puts this "benefit of the doubt" to rest. Hillary made these ugly statements because this is what she believes, not because she was sick. Hillary clearly feels superior to more than half of the voting public, and believes these "others" are vile humans. Unfortunately for Hillary, her statements bring into focus the fact that it is not they, but she who is vile.
I thank Piers for so clearly pointing this out in his mistaken tongue bath of Hillary at the end of the article. His attempts to rehabilitate her vile beliefs, only shines the light that much brighter on them. Hillary has always blamed, and accused others, from the "vast right wing conspiracy" to today's "basket of deplorable." She is a vile, ugly person who holds dear to gaining the ultimate political power. She is one person who should never be given the reins of power.
Hillary does not, and has never merited consideration for the Presidency of the US.
This is yet another nail in that coffin.
