For a pathological liar like Trump, honesty and straight talk from any woman is something he is unaccustomed to and can never accept.
Over the past few months Republican standard-bearer and big-time wrestling celebrity Donald Trump has insulted, denigrated and demonized nearly every American that doesn’t support him. By now it is old news that Trumps thinks “women have to be treated like shit,” that Latinos are rapists and drug smugglers, and that African Americans are inherently lazy and stupid and are content in that condition. At his campaign stops, it is typical for Trump’s supporters to use vile invectives against Clinton and non-Trump supporters calling for her to be killed, call African Americans n*ggers, and chant “build a wall – kill them all” in referring to Hispanics. In fact, as New York Times reporters witnessed, “the frequency with which some Trump supporters use coarse, vitriolic, even violent language – in the epithets they shout and chant, the signs they carry, and T-shirts they wear” is a “pattern not seen in connection with any recent political candidate, in any party.”
Obviously, Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton has heard the seriously hateful remarks targeting her at Trump campaign rallies, and noticed that Trump leads his hateful acolytes in parroting hurtful, violent, and dangerous remarks about non-Aryan and non-Christian Americans. Everyone with a pulse has heard them and many recoil in disbelief that this is an alleged serious political party and a serious general election. So it was important that on Friday at a campaign stop, Hillary Clinton finally, and rightly, labeled the “Trumpites,” at least half of which, she called a “basket of deplorables.” Actually, Clinton explained what it takes to make it into the “deplorables” basket.
