Actual “Deplorables” Found!

Hillary Clinton had her Romney-esque “47%” moment when she claimed that half of all Trump voters were “deplorables.” (What advantage she thought she was gaining to make such an absurd claim is beyond me.) But, now, the actual Deplorables have surfaced. Apparently President-elect Trump is filling cabinet posts with them!

You read it here first!

  1. Well, I never thought she was actually wrong when she said that. Just not politically correct. That may even have been the spark that pushed more deplorables to vote Trump than reasonables to vote Clinton…

    • It is not a matter of whether she was correct, it was whether it was politic. Nothing to gain, something to lose is not a good label for a political stance.

      The Dems were/are suffering from their jettisoning of the working class as a base and it just did not make any sense to insult them. Why they decided to jettison that part of their base in the first place is beyond weird. They were always trying to fashion a coalition, so why not keep workers and just add professionals instead of jettisoning one for the other? I guess you can’t be a neoliberal and a liberal at the same time. I think it was a mistake to allow conservatives to demonize the label liberal. There should have been push back and a defense of modern liberalism.

    • Since tRump followers were/are all against “political correctness,” I find it difficult to see how this comment would offend them. 😉
