If it fits in the basket of deplorables, they must admit: Truth isn't pretty

Let's encourage Donald Trump to waste $2million in his meager campaign money to exploit his own "deplorable" followers, as he did in his recent pol-ad buy, where his "brilliant" videographers highlight the fascinating part of Hillary Clinton's "basket of deplorables" speech. (Reported in Daily Kos).

[Hillary speaking]: “You could put half of Trump supporters into what I’d call a basket of ‘deplorables’...the racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, name it.”

UPDATE: BREAKING: Trump releases anti-Trump ad- by "Brainwrap".

Racist Trumponians belong in the basket of deplorables.

In summary, no place in the Trumponian ad provides a voice over to counter Hillary Clinton's description of those who she puts in the "deplorables basket".  

Two simple observations:

1. At no point in the ad does either the voiceover or the visuals bother trying to claim that any of Hillary’s claims are false. I mean, the crowd shots do include a shot of a black guy, women, and one shot of someone holding a “Veterans for Trump” sign as counters to the attacks...but they all flip by so quickly I’m not sure anyone will get that. Oh, and they make sure to include a quick shot of Trump handing out play-doh, which isn’t exactly a winning argument.

2. In addition, the ad is targeted not at independents or squishy Hillary-leaners, but specifically at those already supporting Trump. This might make sense if he held a narrow lead and was just trying to shore up his base, but he’s the one who needs to win over undecideds.

Anyway, that’s my take.

So, typical of Donald Trump, he's wasting his money targeting his supporters while, at the same time, reinforcing Hillary's message.
Indeed, those who believe David Duke is worth electing to office, or those who want to vote for Donald Trump because the racist David Duke supports him, are who they are and belong in the "basket of deplorables"  Go Hillary!

If the deplorables fit inside the basket, then they they must admit to who they are and the deplorable racism they represent. Truth isn't pretty.
