In a recent Donald Trump rally, the Republican nominee gave his supporters a chance to respond directly to Hillary Clinton for calling them a “basket of deplorables.”
Kicking off the group of supporters were a school principal and his wife, who immediately denounced Hillary for lumping all of Trump’s supporters into a group of what she says is “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic and Islamophobic.”
Watch the moment when people that Hillary looks down at, respond to her…
From Fox News Insider:
Hillary Clinton has taken extensive criticism for labeling half of Donald Trump supporters a “basket of deplorables,” and now the “deplorables” themselves are calling her out.
At a Trump campaign event in Asheville, North Carolina, on Monday, the Republican nominee invited some supporters onstage to respond to Clinton’s assertion that many of them are “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic and Islamophoboic.”
“My wife and I represent non-deplorable people,” one man said. “We are not racists at all. We don’t even fit on that list that she put out.”
“As a black, female American, I say let’s get out and support Donald Trump,” his wife exclaimed to applause.
Now, there are even official ‘Deplorable’ t-shirts. Absolutely genius.

Hillary Clinton’s comment is going to haunt her campaign until November. There’s even a petition demanding an apology from her.
