John Heilemann: Clinton ‘Deplorables’ Remark Close to ‘Dictionary Definition of Bigoted’

heilemannOn ABC’s This Week this morning, John Heilemann said Hillary Clinton‘s “deplorables” remark gives ammo for Donald Trump to attack her as bigoted.

Heilemann said that it certainly helps for Clinton to apologize quickly, given Trump’s reluctance to ever do that for anything.

However, he went on to say this:

“Donald Trump has attacked her as a bigot over and over again, right? And before this moment, there was never a time in which you could kind of justify that, where she had said anything that actually kind of met the dictionary definition of bigoted. This comment kind of gets very close to the dictionary definition of bigoted.”

Now, the only problem here is that, well, Clinton was specifically referring to actual racists and bigots in her remarks.
