Hillary Clinton just broke the cardinal rule of campaigning by insulting millions of voters as racist, sexist, homophobic xenophobes who belong in a “basket of deplorables.”
The No. 1 rule in politics is to never insult or alienate voters.
Hillary revealed her true colors while speaking to a group of elite, wealthy donors at a high-priced fundraiser in New York City on Sept. 9.
While pandering to super-rich donors for money, Clinton slammed millions of Trump supporters as racist, sexist and homophobic.
“You can put half of Trump supporters into what I call the ‘basket of deplorables,’ ” said Hillary (see video).
“Racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, you name it.”
Clinton’s dismissive comments came just three days after she pledged to be a leader for all Americans — including those that don’t support her.

Hillary’s name-calling revealed the contempt she has for regular, working-class Americans, Trump rep Jason Miller said in a statement:
“Just when Hillary Clinton said she was going to start running a positive campaign, she ripped off her mask and revealed her true contempt for everyday Americans.
“Clinton revealed just how little she thinks of the hard-working men and women of America.”
Civil rights hero Clarence Henderson is sick and tired of the usual Democratic talking point of trashing all Republicans as racist and sexist.
“I understand that platform because I’ve been a Democrat,” said Henderson.
“I come from a time known as ‘Jim Crow.’ I know what racism is and isn’t.”
Clarence Henderson said Democrats have failed to deliver results for African-Americans even though blacks have voted Democratic for the past 50 years.
“I am not looking to like Donald Trump,” said Henderson. “I’m looking at what he can do, and the history of the Republican Party versus the Democratic Party.”
Bruce Carter, founder of Black Men For Bernie, also supports Trump and plans to campaign for him in battleground states this fall.
Carter said oligarchical career politicians like Hillary Clinton pander to minorities when they need their votes but do nothing to improve their struggling communities.
“If black communities vote for Hillary Clinton and Democrats in November, nothing will change because Democrats will continue to believe they don’t have to do anything to earn our votes,” said Carter.
“Hillary Clinton is for Hillary Clinton and the rich donors of the Clinton Foundation.”
