Don't you mean floated to the top?

Specifically, she said half...or about 25million voters give or take. She also said it was a gross generalization so I don't think we can refute people calling her out for making a gross generalization.

Regardless, it was a pretty tone deaf statement at best and while she slipped in the word "half" her supporters, especially on this forum have ramped that estimate up to 100% which was the intended implication all along.

That's a classic political blunder. Never, ever, ever, blame the voters, or call them stupid etc. even if they have been. You have to give them an "out" to jump ship back to the democrats where many of them voted before without backing them into a corner with name calling.

During a speech this weekend – for the Human Rights Campaign of all things – he referred to Trump supporters as the dregs of society. That’s a step below deplorables, isn’t it?

He also told the crowd of LBGT supporters that they have a fight ahead of them, point out it’s those against them who have a friend in the Trump.

The demagogues like Biden and Hilary are nothing but hate-filled bigots. People like Biden don't bother trying to convince people to see the virtue or the merits of their ideas, politics or agenda. They just want everyone to hate and despise their political opponents. Getting people to hate other people, pitting one person against another, that is all they do.

The politics of hate and personal destruction are just two of the weapons the lunatic left uses to rip at the social fabric of America.

And some of them are. They certainly are. Trump has Supremacists, NAZIs, Birthers, criminals and traitors behind him.

Not all Trump supporters are like that, but I defy you to assert that those people are not also supporting him, and Trump encourages them.
Don't both parties have some real scumbags in it? Because I see them all the time on both sides.

He’s correct. So what’s the problem?

Dregs: The most worthless part or parts of something. The remnants of a liquid left in a container, together with any sediment or grounds.

wow Joe, that will get them to vote for you or Democrats because it worked so well so far <sarcasm>

Hard to believe that Hilly forgot the 1st rule of politics..Dont attack the military, the police, or the voters..

She managed to do all 3 during her awful campaign

You can cherry-pick any segment of society and try to characterize it anyway you want ....doesn't really mean anything.

How many people came out to vote for Obama for no other reason than he's black?
Insinuating that blacks can't get through life without the help of the democrats and liberals sounds really racist to me.

It's not a nice thing to say but many of them are.

Trump ripped the lid off the dirty secret of just how many xenophobic racists there are in the R party.

These people quake with fear when they see a brown person. They are scared to death of what America will be like when there is no longer a white Christian majority, and they think they are being persecuted if the government does not take concrete steps to preserve America as a majority white Christian nation.
