Al D'Amato: Clinton Fdn 'Makes Boss Tweed Look Like A Choir Boy'
Former New York Sen. Alfonse D’Amato slammed Hillary Clinton for calling half of Donald Trump’s supporters a “basket of deplorables” at a recent fundraising event.
Clinton clarified that she had been “grossly generalistic,” but D’Amato said on Sunday Morning Futures that the comments were nonetheless “outrageous.”
“You want to know who the basket of deplorables are? The dictators-- the countries like Saudi Arabia that discriminate against everything that moves and some things that don’t,” D’Amato told Maria Bartiromo.
“The whole group of them that have given hundreds of millions of dollars to her foundation.”
“The Clintons brought patronage to a whole new [level].”
“They make ‘Boss Tweed’ look like the choir boy,” he said, referring to William Tweed, the boss of 19th Century Tammany Hall.
“She’s going to live to regret this one,” Republican strategist Ed Rollins said.
