From the Daily Beast here:
Hillary Clinton acknowledged that she had committed a major mistake when she described half of Donald Trump’s supporters as “deplorables,” according to a New York Times report. Clinton reportedly admitted to the error immediately after making the remarks at a New York fundraiser in September, telling an adviser she “just stepped in it.”
The problem with Hillary Clinton isn’t her intelligence — she’s a very smart woman. Her political instincts are shit at certain times. She didn’t have to go to a fundraiser and call Trump supporters ‘deplorable’ – she would have gotten the campaign donations without that comment.
I don’t know if she believed that comment, or was too eager to please her donors, I don’t know but that was some stupid shit right there.
