When the election is over Americans may look back on this weekend as the turning point when Hillary Clinton handed Donald Trump the election. First she said, “To just be grossly generalistic, you can put half of Trump supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables, Right? Racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic, you name it.” Translation: if you don’t vote Democrat you likely fall into one of these categories. Then while attending the 9/11 Memorial Ceremony in New Your she faints, stumbles and collapses, giving credibility to claims that is is not medically fit for the presidency.
In the first instance Hillary Clinton believes that 20 to 25 percent of American voters fall into this category. If you’re a Trump supporter, this may well include you. Attacking the candidate is on thing, but attacking voters is never a good idea. Independents in particular who may be leaning toward Trump are likely insensed.
In the second instance, Democrats and the liberal media no longer can argue that comments about Hillary’s health are part of some right wing conspiracy. Hillary most definitely has health problems. The debates, no doubt, have Hillary’s campaign managers worried sick. Should she faulted behind the podium in one of the three debates, it would be the nail in the coffin.
Of course, Donald Trump could do something equally as damaging, but a word of caution for Donald Trump. Don’t overplay your hand. Hillary has done enough damage to herself.
