Someone Struck a Delicate FeeFees Nerve . . . And It's About Goddamn Time...

The Gadfly thinks it is pretty fucking hilarious watching Drumpf and his surrogates and supporters all have a collective case of the 'oh dear is me' vapors over Hillary's "deplorable" comment.

For the sake of review and proper context, here's HRC's full statement:

"You know, just to be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. They're racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic — you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up. He has given voice to their websites that used to only have 11,000 people – now have 11 million. He tweets and retweets their offensive, hateful, mean-spirited rhetoric. Now some of these folks, they are irredeemable, but thankfully they are not America. But the other basket–and I know this because I see friends from all over America here–I see friends from Florida and Georgia and South Carolina and Texas–as well as, you know, New York and California–but that other basket of people are people who feel that the government has let them down, the economy has let them down, nobody cares about them, nobody worries about what happens to their lives and their futures, and they're just desperate for change. It doesn't really even matter where it comes from. They don't buy everything he says, but he seems to hold out some hope that their lives will be different. They won't wake up and see their jobs disappear, lose a kid to heroin, feel like they're in a dead end. Those are people we have to understand and empathize with as well."

The Gadfly has analyzed that statement 7 different ways from Sunday and for the life of him he is unable to decipher what in the world all of the hand wringing is all about.

Plainly translated, what Clinton said was that around half of Drumpf's supporters are just as like-minded (racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic) as Drumpf is himself and that the other half are essentially good people who have simply lost faith in their political leaders and government and out of desperation to see change that might better their economic and social status and quality of life, they've decided to roll the dice and throw their lot in with the celebrity carnival barker and his traveling freak show.

There is no debate, based on all of the available, amply documented evidence, that Donald Drumpf is indeed a deplorable, racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic and Islamophobic sleazy businessman and consummate con artist who has parlayed his "famous" celebrity name into a frighteningly viable shot at becoming the leader of the world's, arguably at this juncture, greatest representative democracy.  Therefore it stands to reason that like-minded people, and clearly this country has quite a few of them, would be attracted to Drumpf's deplorable and not so very covert messaging and public behavior.

Frankly speaking dear readers, The Gadfly is kind of upset that HRC sandbagged her estimate by stating that only "half" of Drumpf's supporters fell in to the "deplorable" category.  The Gadfly, if he had his say in the matter, would peg that number closer to two thirds, and if time and space in this shitty little blog format permitted it, The Gadfly could post reams of on the record statements, and literally hours of video and audio footage of Drumpf, his hired thug surrogates and a great many of his unfathomably ignorant supporters comporting themselves in quite a "deplorable" manner -- a manner that succinctly put -- is unbecoming of decent human beings.

And just to preemptively engage The Gadfly's slack jawed detractors who feel inclined to screech - "hey Gadfly, you ain't posting no examples of deplorable behavior by our hero Drumpf and we, his supporters, because you ain't got none! --- neener, neener!"

To which (heavy sigh) The Gadfly would duly respond:

Drumpf, early on,  publicly announced that he questioned Obama's birthplace and smugly boasted on national tv that he had sent private investigators to Hawaii to look in to Obama's birth certificate and his investigators were reporting back to their boss that they "cannot believe what they are finding." Of course Drumpf never produce these seemingly amazing "findings" to the public but he most certainly had no qualms about reaping the praise and admiration of the right wing Obama haters and racists for sticking it to the darkie president and thus helping launch his wingnut quest for the presidency.  That, dear readers, is fucking DEPLORABLE!

Drumpf broad-brush labeled illegal immigrants from Mexico and Central America as a bunch of rapists, killers and drug runners, when in FACT, the vast majority are women and children fleeing economic and political repression in their own countries.  His supporters unanimously agreed with him and have openly demonized these people.  That, dear readers, is fucking DEPLORABLE!

Drumpf exhorts his goon supporters to violence by stating he would personally like to punch protesters in the face and that in the good old days protesters would be carried out on stretchers and that he would gladly put up the bail money to anyone who beats up peaceful protesters.  To nobody's surprise, quite a few of his supporters have resorted to violence against protesters, and others, and even more of those supporters have loudly and lustily approved of the violence.  That, dear readers, is fucking DEPLORABLE!

Drumpf winked and nodded and told his supporters that they always have the option of the 2nd Amendment solution (gun solution) to prevent Hillary Clinton from performing her constitutionally bestowed presidential duties should she be fairly elected.  Drumpf's bloodthirsty followers in the crowd at his rally that night cheered wildly upon hearing that statement and gave him a standing ovation.  That, dear readers, is fucking DEPLORABLE!

Drumpf's business ventures, with a specialty in bankrupting casinos and walking away with suitcases full of money, impress his supporters.  Drumpf has a long history of stiffing small businesses that do work for him, stiffing workers on pay for work performed for him and of using his wealth to lawyer up and bully anyone who dares to exercise their right to seek justice against him and his unethical business conduct through legal action.  And his supporters don't even bat an eyelash about such scummy behavior.  That, dear readers, is fucking DEPLORABLE!

Drumpf has openly expressed his admiration for former Russian KGB agent and now Russian dictator/"President" Vladimir Putin and even gone so far as to publicly proclaim that in his view Putin is a better leader than the American president Obama because Putin has "very strong control" over his country unlike Obama.  Of course, never mind the niggling FACT that Putin's "very strong control" involves conveniently arranging for the untimely deaths of his political opponents as well as any journalists who defy him and ruling over his people and government through iron-fisted fear and intimidation.  Drumpf also has a myriad of personal business interests that can be tied directly to Russian oligarchs - oligarchs who would love nothing more than to see American democracy subjugated to their totalitarian will.  That, dear readers, is fucking DEPLORABLE!

Drumpf's campaign manager Steve Bannon is a white nationalist race-baiter.  One of his closest advisers, Roger Ailes, is a serial workplace sexual predator.  An appalling number of his television surrogates like Katrina Pierson, Pastor Mark Burns and Marco Gutierrez appear to be nothing more than randomly selected mouthpieces hired solely based on their outspoken, loud mouth support of Drumpf, but who in fact are a literal freak show parade of bottom feeding fringe lunatics with highly questionable personal integrity and employment credentials.  That, dear readers, is fucking DEPLORABLE!

Lastly (at least for the sake of closing out this post) --

For the past few weeks Drumpf has had his creepy surrogates blanketing the cable tv "news" shows and spreading vicious conspiracy theories and innuendo about Hillary Clinton's physical (and specifically neurological) health.  Based on The Gadfly's previous post in which it was shown how Drumpf paid off some quack "doctor" to write him a completely and comically bullshit quack letter about his own supposedly "astonishingly excellent" state of health, that, dear readers, is the quintessential motherfucking definition of the word DEPLORABLE!

In summary, as far as The Gadfly is concerned, Clinton was dead-spot on in her assessment of the moral caliber of a sizable portion of Drumpf's followers.  And not only should she not back down one single inch from that statement, she should duct tape it to a sledgehammer and pound that smarmy fucker Drumpf over his ferret-wearing head with it until he cries uncle like the whining little bitch that he surely is.  And Drumpf's followers can all go fuck themselves if they find that view "deplorable."

And that dear readers, is about all that The Gadfly has to say on this deplorable subject.


**Standard Gadfly Disclaimer**:  The Gadfly's support of Hillary Rodham Clinton extends principally to the point where if HRC is the sole alternative to a phony, short cheeto-fingered, ferret wearing shitgibbon, and fascist dictator wannabe, then The Gadfly has no issues with being labeled a Clinton supporter.
