Hillary Clinton Doubles Down on ‘Basket of Deplorables’ Comment

On this week’s broadcast of CBS’s “Sunday Morning.” 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said using the word “deplorables” in referring to Donald Trump’s supporters was not a factor in Trump’s victory.

Clinton said, “Well, I thought Trump was behaving in a deplorable manner. I thought a lot of his appeals to voters were deplorable. I thought his behavior as we saw on the “Access Hollywood” tape was deplorable. And there were a large number of people who didn’t care. It did not matter to them. And he turned out to be a very effective reality TV star.”

When asked if it hurt her in the election Clinton said, “I don’t buy that. I’m sorry I gave him a political gift of any kind. But I don’t think that was determinative.”
