#BasketOfDeplorables has begun trending on Twitter following comments by Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton calling Trump supporters bigots and a “basket of deplorables.”
Speaking to a group of Donors, Clinton said, “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, Islamophobic, you name it.”
Users took to Twitter to express their disdain and began trending the hashtag #BasketOfDeplorables with approximately 60K tweets.

Hillary sees working people as a #BasketOfDeplorables.
This explains her eagerness to tax us quite literally to death.
To pay for her wars?

Attacking your opponent is common sense.

It even seems that Clinton may have inadvertently created the next Trump meme with the phrase
Crooked Hillary calls millions of Americans a #BasketOfDeplorables to her rich 1% supporters.
