Reagan Campaign Manager On Hillary “Deplorables” Statement: “She Will Pay For This”
Guest post by Aleister at American Lookout:
Ed Rollins, campaign manager for Ronald Reagan in 1984, talked about Hillary’s “basket of deplorables” comment on Fox today. As reported at The Gateway Pundit, Hillary called Trump supporters a “basket of deplorables” at a fundraiser Friday night:
Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton attacked supporters of her rival Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, saying half of them are deplorable, irredeemable and ‘not America’ among other slurs in remarks Clinton made at a high dollar fundraiser held at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City that featured Barbra Streisand as the entertainment. With tickets as high as $250,000, a reported $6 million was raised.
Rollins lambasted Hillary for those remarks.
Rollins pointed out that Hillary has a history of name-calling:
I think it’s what she meant. It was a scripted remark. “Deplorable” is a terrible term to use about any Americans. She’s very quick to throw out the title that you’re a “racist” or you’re “deplorable” or you’re “unAmerican” if you’re not for her. And the people that she’s with – she was here for the Barbra Streisand event at the Fashion Week. All the beautiful people raising $6 million. She has spent the last several months in the Hamptons where the rich all go doing these enormous fundraisers. And Trump is out there with real people.
Here’s the video:
