“Chasing Hillary: Ten Years, Two Presidential Campaigns, and One Intact Glass Ceiling,” comes out on Tuesday, and in it, Hillary made some bizarre and outright ridiculous comments about her presidential runs.
From Fox News:
The book reportedly references Clinton’s September 2016 comments — she said that half of Trump supporters could be put into a “basket of deplorables.” The comments were reportedly not the first, as “Hillary always broke down Trump supporters into three baskets,” New York Times reporter Amy Chozick’s book claimed, according to The Daily Beast.
The first group was allegedly made up of Republican supporters who didn’t like Clinton and would always vote along party lines, the outlet said.
Basket No. 2 reportedly included what Clinton allegedly described as those “who feel that the government has let them down, the economy has let them down, nobody cares about them, nobody worries about what happens in their lives and their futures.”
And Basket No. 3 was reportedly made up of “deplorables,” which allegedly included “the racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic — you name it,” the outlet said.
The book also claimed that of the multiple candidates vying for the GOP nomination, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush reportedly concerned the Clintons the most, The Daily Beast said.
According to the book, during one conversation on the subject, Clinton reportedly said, “You know, I am getting pretty tired of hearing about how nobody likes me.”
“They were never going to let me be president,” Clinton was reportedly quoted as saying.
