Sorry Hillary, Your Insults are Ineffective
Hillary Clinton is slipping in the polls, and she is frustrated because there is no knight in shining armor in the form of a voting bloc that is going to ride in and save her campaign. Clinton is desperate and frustrated because she was supposed to bury Donald Trump long before election day but, if you believe the polls, Trump is either ahead or tied with her in key battleground states. Career politicians and their consultants are slaves to the polls, so when the polls look bad, they get desperate, and desperation leads to a lot of ignorant statements. Clinton and her handlers thought it was a good idea to insult Trump supporters, but her insults are ineffective.
Clinton showed how desperate she is when she called half of Trump supporters ‘deplorables’ because she claims they are racist, sexist, homophobic, and xenophobic. She made her asinine statement during a speech she gave at a dinner for donors.
“To just be grossly generalistic, you can put half of Trump supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? Racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic, you name it.”
Clinton is frustrated because Trump’s supporters are in this campaign for the long haul. As much as she wants them to go back from whence they came, they are not going anywhere but to their designated polling places on November 8th.
Clinton’s insults are ineffective because Trump’s supporters don’t care about the labels Democrats/Liberals/Progressives give people to try to silence them. Trump’s supporters are not soft; they don’t care about insults, and they’ve been itching for a fight for decades, and they’ve got a dog in the fight this time.
The insurgents propelled Trump to the Republican nomination because they have been harmed by trade deals that are nothing more than political currency paid to corporations for their campaign donations. The ‘deplorables’ are well aware that they were sold out by both political parties and Trump represents an opportunity to dent the armor of the establishment and possibly regain their voice in the public square.
Republicans and Democrats/Liberals/Progressives have ignored the white, working class for decades and their paying for it now. Clinton panders to blacks, Hispanics, homosexuals, illegal immigrants, women, and Muslims, but she has yet to acknowledge that the white, working-class exist. All she has for the truly disenfranchised who have been crushed under the weight of traitorous trade deals that resulted in 55,000 factories relocating to foreign countries and taking 6 million jobs with them is insults.
Clinton is imploding before our eyes. She is frustrated and desperate because in her mind she is supposed to be the next President of the United States. She thought the GOP establishment would trot out the usual spineless, soulless, corporate chattel as her opponent; easy prey for the Clinton machine, but to her dismay an outsider entered the race and took his message straight to the American people, the ‘deplorables,’ and she cannot shake the outsider and his sturdy supporters.
