Hillary Clinton Says If You Favor Donald Trump You Are Deplorable — Obama Says Americans Are Lazy

She said during Congressional testimony, “What difference, at this point, does it make?” She seemed to attack the lawmakers entrusted with the task of getting to the truth.

WASHINGTON (AFP) – Hillary Clinton has called Donald Trump supporters a “basket of deplorables,” comments that sparked anger from her Republican rival for the White House and quickly went viral.

The Democratic nominee for president was speaking at a fundraiser in New York on Friday night when she said, “to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables.”

“The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic — you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up.”

Speaking to gay rights supporters, she added that those people are “irredeemable, but thankfully they are not America.”

Trump struck back on Saturday, posting on Twitter: “Wow, Hillary Clinton was SO INSULTING to my supporters, millions of amazing, hard working people. I think it will cost her at the Polls!”

“Basket of Deplorables” quickly became a trending hashtag on Twitter on Saturday. There was even a mock account @TheDeplorables.

Clinton also told the crowd at the “LGBT for Hillary” gala that other Trump supporters are people who feel let down by the government and the economy, and are “desperate for change.”

“Those are people we have to understand and empathize with as well,” she said.

I wish we could speak to Ambassador Chris Stevens, Glen Doherty, Tyrone Woods and Sean Smith who died in the September 11, 2012 attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi,  Libya.
.
They would surely tell us: “Hillary Clinton did not have our back.”
.
That’s why they are dead.
.
That’s deplorable.

 Obama says Americans Are Lazy
.
‘If you’re in the United States, sometimes you can feel lazy and think we’re so big we don’t have to really know anything about other people.’
.

During a townhall meeting in Laos, President Barack Obama called Americans “lazy” multiple times.

For one, Obama said Americans’ reluctance to embrace his favored environmental policies is a sign of laziness.

“Usually when you see the environment destroyed, it’s not because it’s necessary for development,” Obama said. “It’s usually because we’re being lazy and we’re not being as creative as we could be about how to do it in a smarter, more sustainable way.”

He also accused Americans of being isolated and ignorant because the United States is such a big country.

“The United States is and can be a great force for good in the world. But because we’re such a big country, we haven’t always had to know about other parts of the world,” he said. “If you’re in the United States, sometimes you can feel lazy and think we’re so big we don’t have to really know anything about other people.”

This isn’t the first time Obama has insulted Americans abroad. During his visit to Malaysia last November, he said Republicans were helping ISIS.
