4. Lets be fully clear just what she was saying!

 

Clinton’s statement . . . was actually very nuanced . . . it is usually taken out of context!!
Here is her full . . . balanced statement!!!!


You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put ** ** half ** ** of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? . . . .. . . . But the ** ** other basket ** ** -- and I know this because I see friends from all over America here -- I see friends from Florida and Georgia and South Carolina and Texas -- as well as, you know, New York and California -- but that other basket of people ** ** are people who feel that the government has let them down, the economy has let them down, nobody cares about them, nobody worries about what happens to their lives and their futures, and they're just desperate for change. It doesn't really even matter where it comes from. They don't buy everything he says, but he seems to hold out some hope that their lives will be different. They won't wake up and see their jobs disappear, lose a kid to heroine, feel like they're in a dead-end.

Those are people we have to understand and empathize with as well.

She was actually reading the mood of the country in a canny way!
