Priebus: 'You Can't Write Off Millions of People That Have Had It With Government'
Was Hillary Clinton's "basket of deplorables" comment her "Mitt Romney moment" of this election?
RNC Chairman Reince Priebus says it might be.
"Obviously, you can't write off millions and millions of people that have had it with government," he told Your World. "And these are hard working people and a lot of them are veterans and I'm sure they don't feel like they are in a 'basket of deplorables.'"
But Priebus said there hasn't been enough attention on Clinton also calling these Trump supporters "irredeemable."
"You know, we're all God's children, we're all on the same team eventually. We're all Americans. And to say that someone is irredeemable is a place, I think, in someone's soul that I don't think any one of us should ever dive into. And that to me is even more disturbing."
Priebus then went off on Clinton and Democrats for being hypocritical in tolerating people with different views and being honest.
"This is the same party and the same person that always tries to make the claim that they're for all of this openness and all of this tolerance except for when it comes to, apparently, half of the country that might not agree with them. And so, I think that Hillary Clinton has been a hypocrite for a long time."
He continued: "I think her true colors are coming out. These are people who can't stop lying about anything, whether it be Benghazi, whether it be emails, whether it even be, unfortunately, about her own health. The issue is these people cannot come clean and tell the truth about anything."
