Hillary was speaking at the LGBT for Hillary fundraiser in New York City Friday night when she described Trump supporters as “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic—you name it.” She cast them as a “basket of deplorables.” 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.
Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway quickly responded on Twitter writing, “One day after promising to be aspirational and uplifting, Hillary insults millions of Americans.”
Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill tweeted that Clinton was referring to “alt-right” voters who “appear to make up half his crowd.”
At the same fundraiser, totally unhinged liberal Barbra Streisand put her feelings about Donald Trump into a parody of the Stephen Sondheim song “Send in the Clowns” with these lyrics:
“Is he that rich, maybe he’s poor, ‘til he reveals his returns, who can be sure? Something’s amiss, I don’t approve, if he were running the free world, where would we move? And if by chance he gets to heaven, even up there, he’ll declare Chapter 11. This sad, vulgar clown. You’re fired, you clown.”
According to Newser.com the event raised money for Clinton’s campaign and the DNC with “contributions” ranging from $1200 to over $250,000.
