Hillary Clinton’s comments about Donald Trump’s supporters are proof she is falling apart, former Speaker Newt Gingrich said on Sunday.
“She just made a statement in which she lumped together millions of Americans,” Gingrich said on “Fox News Sunday,” referring to Clinton’s remark that ‘half’ of Trump supporters fall into the “basket of deplorables.” “Hillary is beginning to fall apart,” said Gingrich, a Trump adviser.
Clinton said Saturday she regrets calling “half” of Trump supporters deplorable, calling it a “grossly generalistic” comment. But Rep. Xavier Becerra (R-Calif.) defended Clinton on the Fox show Sunday, saying it’s clear she’s willing to own up to her mistakes, unlike Trump. “It’s clear there’s a least one candidate in this race who’s willing to say ‘I regret a remark i made,'” Becerra said.
