Tucker Carlson Rips Hillary for Her 'Contempt for the Middle of the Country'
Hillary Clinton is under fire for remarking that half of Donald Trump’s supporters belong in a “basket of deplorables.”
At a fundraising event in New York on Friday, the Democratic nominee labeled many Trump supporters as “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic and Islamophoboic.”
She has since issued an apology for her "grossly generalistic" comments, but many believe this could have negative consequences for her campaign.
"Her expression of contempt for the middle of the country is commonplace in the world she lives in," Tucker Carlson said on "Fox and Friends" this morning. "This is what the elites believe as a matter of course. She just happened to be caught on tape saying it."
Carlson explained that Clinton and those like her don't simply believe that people who disagree with them are wrong, they're actually bad people.
"This is a very common view. I really hope our viewers don't come away thinking only Hillary Clinton believes this. Everyone in her orbit believes it. Trust me."
