Hillary Clinton was right. Donald Trump supporters are deplorable. AsTa-Nehisi Coates, Jamelle Bouie, and Judd Legum have shown two-thirds of Trump supporters believe President Obama isn’t an American (following the lead of the Birther in Chief, Donald Trump). Sixty percent have “unfavorable views” of Islam, while more than 40 percent believe blacks are “more violent” and “more criminal” than whites. And if all that isn’t deplorable enough, twenty percent of Trump supporters think Lincoln was wrong to sign the Emancipation Proclamation!
It’s becoming difficult to see the difference between the party of Trump and theWhite Nationalist party, and if the few remaining decent folk in the GOP establishment and the mainstream media Trumpism.
If Clinton got anything wrong, it was scale. Rather than baskets, she should have said “freight containers.”
If Americans are no longer disgusted by racists, sexists, homophobics, xenophobics, and Islamaphobics and don’t see them as deserving strong condemnation, Trump has already won.
