Hilarious Hashtag Of The Weekend: 'Basket Of Deplorables'

Hillary Clinton's accurate depiction of a number of Trump supporters spawns a hashtag...

At a fundraiser Friday night, Hillary Clinton made a distinction between Trump supporters who fall into what she calls "the basket of deplorables" -- racist, sexist, homophobic or xenophobic, islamophobic, etc., and those supporters who are none of those things but have anger about their situation, and feel economically abandoned by the power structure in politics and government.

Twitter has no problem going after that first group with delicious ridicule. Especially with the Trumpys getting all outraged by her statement. And just in case you think she's overstating the case, more than one tweeter brought proof to the table:

But the rest brought levity. Thanks, Twitter.

And for once, I gotta agree with David Frum:
