Let Them Eat Kale

I do not grant that deplorable and corrupt woman, Hillary Clinton, the moral authority to decide which Americans are deplorable and who are not.

Yeah, take a hike Hillary:

Hillary Clinton’s comment that half of Donald Trump’s supporters are “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic”—a heck of a lot of phobia for anyone to lug around all day—puts back in play what will be seen as one of the 2016 campaign’s defining forces: the revolt of the politically incorrect.

They may not live at the level of Victor Hugo’s “Les Misérables,” but it was only a matter of time before les déplorables—our own writhing mass of unheard Americans—rebelled against the intellectual elites’ ancien régime of political correctness.

The people in "fly-over country" have been let down by our east and west coastal political and cultural elites. But Hillary and her supporters--of all people--have taken the role of judge of these people?

When these self-righteous elites never think our enemies are deplorable and irredeemable?

I may not like Trump. Or have much respect for him. Or even think he is a Republican. But despite the letters I can put after my name, I grew up in Deplorableland. The American people who have placed their hopes in Trump can rightly believe that they have few alternatives. These Americans aren't deplorable. They just feel they are almost out of options.

These people find the elites deplorable and all the evidence so far is that our elites are the ones who are irredeemable.
