Rod Dreher writing at The American Conservative, alerts American voters to the obvious real deplorables; the Clintons.
Let’s see. A month ago, while Donald Trump was down in Louisiana handing out relief supplies to flood victims, Hillary Clinton was at Lady Rothschild’s mansion on Martha’s Vineyard at a $50,000 a plate fundraiser. She spent much of August collecting millions from rich people, not campaigning, and not talking to the press. Less than a week ago, at an LGBT campaign fundraiser at Cipriani Wall Street (top ticket: $250,000), Hillary, in the company of Barbra Streisand and rich, liberal Manhattanites, denounced “half” of Trump’s supporters as “deplorables,” and some of them as “irredeemable.”
This Friday night, while she’s at home in Chappaqua recovering from what is said to be pneumonia, and perhaps contemplating her weakening position in the polls, husband Bill will be at another elite Manhattan venue, the Rainbow Room, high atop Rockefeller Center, hosting — wait for it — a fundraiser.
If I’m worried about Donald Trump becoming the next US president, I’m starting to get really worried about the Clinton brand. It takes real talent to be a Democrat who lets a brash Manhattan tycoon come off as the populist presidential candidate, doesn’t it?
