Clinton was speaking at an LGBT fundraiser in New York City Friday night when she described Trump supporters “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic — you name it.” But she stressed that the rest of the Republican nominee’s supporters are people who feel let down by the government and the economy and are “just desperate for change,” and said those people need sympathy.
In an effort to explain the support behind Trump, Clinton went on to describe the rest of Trump supporters as people who are looking for change in any form because of economic anxiety and urged her supporters to empathize with them.
“To just be grossly generalistic, you can put half of Trump supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables,” Clinton said. “Right? Racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic, you name it.”
She added, “And 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 have 11 million. He tweets and retweets offensive, hateful, mean-spirited rhetoric.”
Clinton went on to say that some of these people were “irredeemable” and “not America.”
To put this in perspective, according to Clinton, anyone who is against homosexuality or Islam is someone deplorable.
Mat 24:9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.
Mat 24:10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
