    Default Deplorables: we were warned

    Was she actually under-stating the case?

    I feel her pain <G> --


    Hillary Clinton’s 2016 warning about the “deplorables” emerging in the Republican Party when Donald Trump ran against her for president wasn’t just correct; she underestimated their impact, a Salon commentator wrote in a scathing essay posted Wednesday.

    “In many ways, Clinton was too kind,” Chauncey DeVega wrote. “If anything, she underestimated how many Americans were in fact committed and enthusiastic human deplorables.”

    The political essayist is not the first to revisit Clinton’s speech of late. The Washington Post recently noted that some called the former senator’s remarks “prescient.” The Baltimore Sun declared last year, “Ms. Clinton was right.”

    Comey didn't help. MY first reaction to the newly discovered emails, which the news immediately called a 'BOMBSHELL' was that the FBI had already seen these emails at Hillary's end, which turned out to be true, but the damage was done.

    This woman knew the names of all the world leaders, and could pronounce them. She could also find all the countries on the map. Likely the most qualified ever to run for the office.
    "alternative facts (lies)" are a cancer eating through a democracy, and will kill it. 1st amendment is not absolute.

    It is never a good idea to insult those who you need to win elections. What the candidate says reflects on the party.

    I think what he's saying is that the DNC is made up of MORONS, who have had a couple centuries of opportunities to grasp US electoral politics, yet continue to squander every chance.

    If we're depending on those Bozos to drive the Fascists into the sea . . .
