Dems are at it again — this time, smearing wall supporters as ‘deplorables’

Betsy McCaughey, New York Post

As Sen. Marco Rubio pointed out, insisting on no border wall is like demanding no TSA agents at airports — ridiculous. No matter how it turns out, Democrats are smearing large swaths of voters as racist and immoral because they support the wall. It’s a repeat of when Hillary Clinton labeled her rival’s supporters a “basket of deplorables” — meaning racists, cranks and ­xenophobes. Sixty days after she hurled that insult, Clinton lost the heartland states and, with them, the 2016 election. The debate over the wall is the deplorables redux. Liberals take note: Insults aren’t a winning strategy.
