Hillary Clinton referred to Donald Trump’s supporters as a “basket of deplorables” taken to mean that they are sexist, hate gays, hate immigrants, and hate people unlike them. Despite the fact that generally describes Trump’s platform there is now outrage being sparked on the right and the left.
Trump took quick advantage of the situation and pushed out a Tweet which made him seem like the nice guy, so this is not panning out well for Clinton.
While Hillary said horrible things about my supporters, and while many of her supporters will never vote for me, I still respect them all!

The hashtag #BasketOfDeplorables is now top trending on Twitter which led Hillary to issue a formal retraction, which has now caused the story to spin out of control.

Do you think that she was right to call half of them “deplorables”?
