Beware the fury of “the deplorables.”

Hillary Clinton referred to half of Donald Trump’s supporters as a “basket of deplorables” two times in two days.

The first, on Israeli TV’s channel 2 and again Friday night at an LGBT fundraiser in New York City.

“To just be grossly generalistic, you can put half of Trump supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables,” she told the NewYork  crowd. “Right? Racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic, you name it. And unfortunately, there are people like that and he has lifted them up.”

On Saturday Trump’s supporters fired back on social media. These were just a few of the furious fans who were insulted.



Trump’s running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence shot back on Saturday.

“The millions of Americans that are supporting my running mate were described in the most deplorable terms. It’s extraordinary to think of it,” he told the crowd at the Value Voters Summit in Washington D.C. “They are not a basket of anything. They are Americans and they deserve your respect.”
