Dueling Tweets From The Presidential Candidates

Any reasonable person would admit that Donald Trump has won the hearts of racists, misogynists, bigots, and homophobes all across this country. That is just a fact, and Trump has gone out of his way to appeal to that sick crowd. But he's very thin-skinned when anyone points that out.

Last Friday, Hillary Clinton pointed it out:

You know, just to be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? The 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 offensive, hateful, mean-spirited rhetoric. Now some of those folks, they are irredeemable. But thankfully they are not America.

Clinton was right, but Trump was quick to respond with a tweet. His response was just another lie, and Clinton also pointed that out. Here are those dueling tweets:

Ouch! She stung him with that reply. When you've gone out of your way to preach hate, it's more than disingenuous to claim you respect the very people you've spent months demonizing.
