She said it. Now people have to talk about it: "basket of deplorables" - BRILLIANT

The timing is perfect.

Well done, Hillary!

"Yo, people! Finding the room a little crowded? THERE'S AN ELEPHANT IN HERE WITH US....!"

"Birds keep disappearing? Hang on a minute while I put this bell on the... YEP, CAT HERE!"

"Whaddaya mean, 'gorgeous outfit'? DUDE'S NEKKID! HIS TEENY TACKLE'S BOUNCIN'!"

If these things get said too early, they get written off, not believed, and the person saying them gets discounted and even vilified.

It these things get said too late, the response is "well, no shiteedah, Brilliant One..." and the person saying them gets no credit, and maybe even blame, as in "You didn't notice until NOW?"

But at the exact right moment, these things can be said, and the Wall of Denial crumbles like concrete with too much sand in the mix.

Now people HAVE to talk about it.

Who follows Trump?

What does that say about Trump?

About them?

And about America?

And about our future?

Oh yeah... I give her *major* props on this one. Right thing at the right time. This discussion will outlast the corporate media howling about "gaffes" and it will cut deep and the blood will not clot soon. This discussion will continue. The memes will spawn and go viral.

It was effing *beautiful.*

delightedly,
Bright

7. There is a T shirt already---but bragging about being deplorable.

My daughter saw it on Amazon.

2. "#basektofdeplorables" is trending on Twitter right now.

It's sort of being discussed. Mostly, it's a bunch of butthurt from the people who that comment was aimed at, however. The truth hurts, I guess.

3. It also changes the subject.

Instead of talking about the Matt Lauer fiasco, we're now on to something much, much better.

5. She hasn't backed down on the word "deplorable". Now she dominates the news cycle for a few hours.

Trump is having to take some medicine and he does not like the taste of it.

The Faux outrage from tRump's surrogates would be deplorable if it weren't laughable.

9. Deplorable is a very kind description compared to what they are, championing such scum.

Most of the MSM is in that basket.
