Clinton Campaign Attempt To “Walk Back” Hillary’s “Basket of Deplorable Americans” Scripted Comments…


Regrets, she has a few,… but then again, too few to mention...

The Clinton Campaign is attempting to clean up Hillary’s flubbed Alinsky narrative to divide, isolate, ridicule and marginalize Donald Trump’s supporters.  Releasing the following statement:


Just to be clear.  Hillary Clinton calling half of Donald Trump’s supporters a “basket of deplorable Americans” was not some off-the-cuff comment.  It was written into her teleprompter, and it was also evidenced a week earlier when the approach was first tested out.

Watch the first run:

The goal of the “basket” narrative was to divide Trump supporters and create a toxic image. It was simply a campaign strategy, and Hillary Clinton screwed up the approach by quantifying the basket as “half” of Trump supporters.

At its political core, the advancement of liberalism is based on division. Alinsky Rules for Radicals: Isolate, Ridicule, Marginalize.

Hillary Clinton is not apologizing for dividing and labeling millions of Americans; she simply regrets screwing up a well-planned strategy by her campaign team with her flubbed delivery therein. Nothing more.

Secretary Clinton only regrets screwing up the intended plan, and now the Clinton campaign is trying to figure out if they can recover the original intent of the scheme, by parsing out the “grossly generalistic” aspect.

The campaign, and the entire media apparatus who were previewed on the campaign strategy (evidenced by their being allowed to film the fundraiser commentary), want to push a narrative that Trump supporters are: “racist, nativist, homophobic, Islamaphobic, bigoted etc.  They had it all set up:

This approach was all pre-scripted.  The entire design was planned well in advance, and scheduled for a Friday delivery to give the media all weekend to discuss.  The media was there at the fundraiser to film the event and have the captured soundbite for the use by the campaign advocates.

She blew it.  It backfired.

Secretary Clinton and her campaign come across as what they are: elitist ideologues dependent on retention of power by dividing Americans.


trump im with you

“Isn’t it disgraceful that Hillary Clinton makes the worst mistake of the political season and instead of owning up to this grotesque attack on American voters, she tries to turn it around with a pathetic rehash of the words and insults used in her failing campaign? For the first time in a long while, her true feelings came out, showing bigotry and hatred for millions of Americans.

How can she be President of our country when she has such contempt and disdain for so many great Americans? Hillary Clinton should be ashamed of herself, and this proves beyond a doubt that she is unfit and incapable to serve as President of the United States. I will be President for all of the people, and together we will Make America Great Again.”

    most people are concentrating on the deplorable statement but IMO the irredeemable word is much more important. This is the type of language used by EVERY mass murdering dictator in history. It is how it starts they select a group and deem them to be less than human, they deem them to be the “problem” and once they are irredeemable in their eyes their is only one final solution for those people exist in their minds. It always comes to mass killings with these people. Hillary is unfit to lead this country.

      Excellent comment Unseen, I have been looking at that word looking back at me all day and it has been worrisome..


    • Spot on, and every mass murdering “communist” dictator had their share of adoring fans, aka sycophants, including the media type mouthpieces…

      This enemedia in our nation forgets that, as in all dictatorships the useful idiots are generally the first to go when it’s time to “purge the masses” which means at that point they are useless eaters as power has been attained.

      How fortunate for the alt-left scumbags that it will never reach that point here as Trump will trounce krooked killery, but… us vulgar deplorables must make sure that nobody ever forgets…

      if this is on the TelePromptHer then it shows just how out of touch she and her campaign staff are. I also believe when she says the other half believe the government let them down, she really thinks and means we need more government programs.

        Since she said the same thing on Israeli TV (see earlier CTH article on her deplorable comment), it is a campaign wide sentiment. It was not some off the cuff remark delivered in an emotional setting. It was calculated.

        One thing I have learned this election cycle is that Alinsky’s tactics only work when people are unaware of them, and DJT has made us aware of them BIGLY.

        The original intent was to shame DJT’s supporters into voting for her based on her moral superiority (so-called) or to stay home. But once we understand the tactics, the response to those kinds of remarks is not shame but cold anger and a stiffened resolve to install The Donald as our next president and remove from office or influence of any sort those who applauded her statement.

    Describing HRC as “misanthropic” is Churchillian understatement ! She’s been publicly displaying her contempt for americans, our laws, government and institutions for decades ! And – lest we forget – it was exemplified by the Clinton Administration’s exit from the “People’s House” ; with the silverware . Better we remember sociopaths – as described in publicly available texts – have accurately predicted HRC’s behaviors and attitudes.

      Spot on! “Why Does He Do That?” is a book by Gavid DeBecker describing why abusers do what they do. All the thought processes described in that book can EASILY be attributed to the Obama Administration (to be grossly generalistic) and to Hillary in specific.

    Both times, she prefaced with: I may be “grossly generalistic” per script. When she apologized, her excuse was that she was “grossly generalistic”. Umm…..
    I’ve seen many people today saying they have now decided to vote Trump because of her crappy comments.
    BTW, we’re “irredeemable” too, according to Clinton.

    Most libs are probably just misguided. There are some, however, that know exactly what they are doing, and those cretins egg on and guide the sheep. I have been guilty of detesting and hating all liberals and progressives, but I’m not going to buy into this version of the “us vs them” rhetoric anymore. These folks, stupid as they may be, are fellow AMERICANS, and I’m not playing into the Alinskyites hands anymore.

    The most powerful force on Earth is the American People, united in a common cause. Ask the Nazis what that looks like. Ask Imperial Japan. Hell, take a Delorean back to the end of the Revolution and ask a butt-hurt Brit what a can of American whoop ass feels like!

    You see, gang, I know liberals are annoying, retarded pukes, but by fighting each other, we let the Powers that Be control our future. No more. From now on, I’ll say nothing rather than insult a misguided progressive, because, like Trump, we’ve gotta go after every lost sheep and bring the flock back together.

    Went to mass this evening and the reading was “The Prodigal Son”. We’ve got Americans out there so lost, they are voting against their best interests! Hopefully some of these lost sheep can wake up and come home, but we’ve gotta let them know there’s a place here for them should they see the light, not slam a door in their face. It’s gonna be hard, but I’m taking this new approach! Let you guys know how it goes!

    Sundance, some may have a different point of view but I believe this post is singularly your best of the summer 2016. Well done. Your focused tracking of the deliberate and strategic attempt by the HRC campaign to inject racism into the conversation was insightful. When losing arguments Dems always change the subject: they deflect attention in order to divert criticism. Their strategy to attack Trump supporters was custom designed to appeal to her elite $250,000 per plate crowd. She is spending her time by selling her appearances (pay for play) for outrageous sums to gain access to the candidate who would be a Queen.

    Trump on the other hand crisis-crosses the heartlands and holds two-a-day rallies to massive crowds at his expense. The American people are not stupid, Hillary. You are. We are on to you.

    This is Hillary’s “47%”. She beat Romney too, by just rounding up to half and by calling people far worse than what Romney said. Only this time, the media will protect her to the very end, instead of destroying her like they did with Romney’s 47%.

    Lucky for us, we have a candidate who won’t shy away from defending his supporters. On top of that, Trump will keep shining the giant spotlight of truth on Hillary.

      There is a big difference here. Romney was not insulting the 47%. He was acknowledging what the bho junta has done to these people. Hildebeest’s comments is meant to be degrading and insulting. She doesn’t think it of 50% of Trump supporters. She thinks it of everyone darn one of us. She thinks it of every Ametican who will not bow the knee to her.

    • This is a Forbes article and points out that many Hillary’s supporters hold the same “deplorable” opinions. The snottier-than-thou author commits her own booboo in the same paragraph criticising spelling of the abominable Trump supporters’ use of a hashtag missing the “l” (#deplorabes), rather than recognizing it as a typo.

      Also, she has her very own typo in that graf: that instead of than. Bwahahaha! Pot meet kettle!

She never even says half is an OVER estimate so her snide little Flying Monkeys can say, Yeah, I regret the ‘half’ too cuz it’s too generous! I didn’t expect Trump to go right after her. I thought he would say something like, Well, she’s had a heckuva bad week and is probably in severe pain so I cut her some slack…. And then Pence or someone would put the knife in. But no.
