In reality she said "Half" of his supporters......and then she said...... Hillary Clinton partially walked back comments she made on Friday night, describing half of Donald Trump's supporters as "deplorables" who were driven “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic" sentiments. “Last night I was ‘grossly generalistic,’ and that's never a good idea." Hillary Clinton walks back 'basket of deplorables' remark Clinton's expression of regret stopped well short of an apology, however. "But let's be clear," she wrote, going on to rattle off a list of Trump's offenses. "[W]hat's really ‘deplorable’ is that Donald Trump hired a major advocate for the so-called ‘alt-right’ movement to run his campaign and that David Duke and other white supremacists see him as a champion of their values. It's deplorable that Trump 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." But you took the bait and ran didn't you?
