It's being called "Hillary Clinton's 47% moment."

Via Breitbart:
During a fundraiser in New York City Friday evening, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton described half of the Americans supporting Donald Trump as a "basket of deplorables" made up of "racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic" people.

"You know to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables," she said as the crowd laughed and applauded. "…the racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, you name it."

Clinton said that it was unfortunate that Trump had given them a voice, citing "offensive mean-spirited rhetoric" on websites and Twitter.

"Some of those folks -- they are irredeemable, but thankfully they are not America," she said.
She praised the supporters attending her fundraiser as "friends" who were in the "other basket."

Clinton tried to signal empathy for those were "desperate for a change" pointing out that they felt that "the government has let them down, nobody cares about them, nobody worries about what happens to their lives and their futures."

"They don't buy everything he says, but he seems to hold out some hope that their lives will be different," she said, calling for her supporters to "understand and empathize with as well."

Clinton's remarks drew comparisons to rhetoric from former failed Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who pointed to the 47 percent of America that were just looking for a handout from the government.

Romney's remarks, made in private, were secretly recorded and made public, dooming his presidential campaign against President Barack Obama.

But the former first lady made her remarks in front of reporters, as she allowed her campaign press pool access to the event.
Here's how the Trump campaign responded:

Of course, she's a total hypocrite:

As her attacks on Trump are all failing, she's moved on to attacking his supporters.

The media is struggling to prop her failing campaign up and it's clear she's getting more desperate (and sickly, good god she's looks worse than ever) by the day.
