Trump up with “deplorables” ad against Clinton

Overshadowed by the Sunday medical troubles of Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump’s campaign on Monday sought to capitalize on Clinton’s comments at a fundraiser late last week that attacked many of Trump’s backers, labeling them a “basket of deplorables.”

Trump’s campaign says his new ad pushing back on Clinton will run in four key states, Ohio, Florida, North Carolina and Pennsylvania.

“These highly offensive and divisive comments reveal the contempt and disgust for everyday Americans that Hillary Clinton has,” said Jason Miller, a top aide in the Trump campaign.

If you missed the weekend dustup over Clinton’s line – and with all of the attention on her health on Sunday, it wouldn’t surprise me if many people didn’t even hear about this episode – here is her actual quote that she later apologized for.
