The Clinton campaign has called out Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos among other right-wing commentators and politicians as “sinister” forces involved in the Trump campaign.
In a blog post, one of Clinton’s senior strategists, Elizabeth Chan criticised Donald Trump Jr’s decision to post a photo entitled ‘The Deplorables,’ which was photo of Trump leading an army of his most prominent supporters.
A friend sent me this. Apparently I made the cut as one of the Deplorables😂😂😂 All kidding aside I am honored to be grouped with the hard working men and women of this great nation that have supported @realdonaldtrump and know that he can fix the mess created by politicians in Washington. He's fighting for you and won't ever quit. Thanks for your trust! #trump2016 #maga #makeamericagreatagain #basketofdeplorables
Aside from Trump and his two sons, the photo included politicians such as Ben Carson and Chris Christie, radio host Alex Jones, Republican strategist Roger Stone, Milo himself, as well as Pepe the Frog, a popular internet meme.

Chan claims that Pepe the Frog is a “symbol associated with white supremacy,” adding that Milo’s “racism and bigotry is so egregious that Twitter banned him from using their site.”
The post concludes by saying that the photo is “horrifying” and the only solution is to vote for Hillary Clinton.
