One of the great lessons in leadership? Express caricaturish contempt for those you’d like to have follow you:
“To just be grossly generalistic, you can put half of Trump supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables,” Clinton said, according to CNN. “Right? Racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic, you name it.”
For “the most qualified candidate in history”, she seems to have a fuzzy grasp on how you lead people.
I don’t recall Ronald Reagan referring to a quarter of the people as “irredeemable government teat-suckers”.
