Hillary "regrets" calling Trump supporters "deplorables"

Clinton: 'Deplorables' comment was "grossly generalistic"

By Catherine Lucey
Associated Press
Hillary Clinton said Saturday that she was wrong to put half of Donald Trump's supporters in a "basket of deplorables," but didn't back down from a description of his campaign the Republican nominee said smeared many Americans and would take a political toll.

Less than 24 hours after she made the statement at a private New York City fundraiser, Clinton said, "I regret saying 'half' that was wrong," adding that it was "grossly generalistic."

But she argued that the word "deplorable" was reasonable to describe much of Trump's campaign.

"He has built his campaign largely on prejudice and paranoia and given a national platform to hateful views and voices, including by retweeting fringe bigots with a few dozen followers and spreading their message to 11 million people," Clinton said.

Clinton, who has said she is the candidate to unify a divided country, made the "deplorables" comment at an LGBT fundraiser Friday night at a New York City restaurant, with about 1,000 people in attendance.

"To just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic you name it," she said, before stressing that other Trump supporters are frustrated and need sympathy.

Trump and his supporters quickly pounced on the remark.

"Wow, Hillary Clinton was SO INSULTING to my supporters, millions of amazing, hard-working people. I think it will cost her at the polls!" Trump said in a tweet.

Running mate Mike Pence, in remarks at the Values Voter conference in Washington, shot back: "The truth of the matter is that the men and women who support Donald Trump's campaign are hard-working Americans, farmers, coal miners, teachers, veterans, members of our law enforcement community, members of every class of this country who know that we can make America great again."

The rhetorical scuffle comes as the candidates head into the final two months of the campaign, with Trump trying to make up ground on Clinton before the Nov. 8 election.

While Clinton is taking heat for her comment, Trump's brand is controversy. At a rally in Pensacola, Florida, on Friday, he said Clinton is "so protected" that "she could walk into this arena right now and shoot somebody with 20,000 people watching, right smack in the middle of the heart. And she wouldn't be prosecuted."

The comment was reminiscent of Trump's January description of the loyalty of his supporters. "They say I have the most loyal people where I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn't lose any voters, OK? It's like incredible," he said.

At the fundraiser, Clinton bemoaned the people she described as "deplorables," saying "unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up. He has given voice to their websites that used to only have 11,000 people now how 11 million. He tweets and retweets their offensive hateful mean-spirited rhetoric. Now, some of those folks they are irredeemable, but thankfully they are not America," said the Democratic nominee, who was the country's top diplomat during President Barack Obama's first term.

Clinton then pivoted and tried to characterize the other half of Trump's supporters, putting them in "that other basket" and saying they need understanding and empathy.

She described them as "people who feel that the government has let them down, the economy has let them down, nobody cares about them, nobody worries about what happens to their lives and their futures, and they're just desperate for change."

It could prove a stumble for a seasoned and polarizing politician who wants to lead a country that includes many who have embraced Trump's exhortations to "lock her up."

Clinton has made similar comments in the past. In an interview with Israeli TV this week, Clinton said that Trump supporters are, "what I call the deplorables; you know, the racists and the, you know, the haters, and the people who are drawn because they think somehow he's going to restore an America that no longer exists."

Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill said in a series of tweets after the remarks that Clinton has been talking about the "alternative right," or "alt-right" movement, which often is associated with efforts on the far right to preserve "white identity," oppose multiculturalism and defend "Western values." Merrill argued that "alt-right" leaders are supporting Trump and "their supporters appear to make up half his crowd when you observe the tone of his events."

In her statement, Clinton said of Trump: "it's deplorable that he's attacked a federal judge for his 'Mexican heritage,' bullied a Gold Star family because of their Muslim faith, and promoted the lie that our first black president is not a true American. So I won't stop calling out bigotry and racist rhetoric in this campaign."

On Saturday, Clinton's staff said she attended another fundraiser at the Armonk, New York, home of attorney David Boies. But reporters traveling with her campaign were not allowed in and did not see her.

Trump, meanwhile, did not address Clinton's comment at his only scheduled public appearance on Saturday, a funeral for social conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly.

But Trump noted that Schlafly rooted for the underdog, and "the idea that so-called little people, or the little person that she loved so much, could beat the system often times, the rigged system."

The Republican presidential nominee earned a standing ovation before and after his brief remarks. He said of Schlafly, "Phyllis was there for me when it was not at all fashionable."

Technically she doesn't regret saying "deplorable", she regrets saying "half".

Actually, she doesn't regret saying it. She regrets that she underestimated the reaction and is now trying to cover her own ass.

That's true. The other "half" that she can't seem to identify (or either "half" for that matter) she has no problems behaving with no class towards. (Except for the alt-right, who are actually on her side, which is really an exercise in irony.)

She regrets saying it, because she wishes she had lied instead.
