When Hillary Clinton collapsed this weekend so did her credibility, PIERS MORGAN says | Daily Mail Online

Hillary Clinton made a terrible mistake on Friday night.

Speaking to a star-studded audience at a fund-raiser in New York, she inexplicably decided to abuse, denigrate and mock tens of millions of her fellow Americans.

‘You could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables,’ she sneered. ‘Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic – you name it.’

The well-heeled, affluent, liberal, metropolitan elite crowd at super-fancy Cipriani restaurant in Wall Street, where Barbra Streisand and Rufus Wainwright performed that same night, whooped and hollered.

I didn’t. Like many, I just winced when I saw it.

It was an astonishingly crass thing to say.

Far worse, I would suggest, than Mitt Romney’s infamous 47% gaffe during the last election campaign, when he suggested half the country were entitled victims.

Why? Because Hillary was directly, unequivocally, accusing vast swathes of Americans of being racist, sexist, gay-and-Muslim haters.

Donald Trump is currently polling around 40% (just a couple of points behind Hillary).

So that’s 20% of the entire voting nation she was tarring with her poisonous bigotry brush.

By Saturday morning, Hillary was backtracking, having realised her hideous error.
