So much for that regret.

Via The Hill:

Hillary Clinton’s campaign defended the Democratic presidential nominee on Monday, following criticism of her comment that half of Donald Trump’s supporters are in a “basket of deplorables.”

A Clinton official said that while the candidate has expressed regret over her phrasing, there are at least some Trump supporters her campaign considers to be in the “deplorables” category.

“What should she have said? 10 percent? 20 percent? 5 percent? What would have been been a more accurate number?” CNN’s Wolf Blitzer asked Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon on his show.
“I don’t know, Wolf. It’s certainly a non-zero number,” Fallon responded.

“The disdain that Hillary Clinton expressed for millions of decent Americans disqualifies her from public service,” Trump said during a speech in Baltimore.

“You cannot run for president if you have such contempt in your heart for the American voter, and she does. You can’t lead this nation if you have such a low opinion for its citizens,” Trump added.
