If you don’t support Clinton, you may be a redneck



If you're not a Clinton fan, you could be a redneck – or something like that.

Or, if your neck's not red, you could be "irredeemable" or nestled among the cozy "basket of deplorables."

This week, former President Bill Clinton told a crowd of his wife's supporters, "The other guy's base is what I grew up in – you know, I'm basically your standard redneck."  

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has the same low opinion of those that don't support her.

Last month, she told supporters, "You know, to be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call 'the basket of deplorables,' right? The racists, sexists, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic – you name it. And unfortunately, there are people like that. And he has lifted them up."
