About a year ago, Democratic nominee for President, Hillary Clinton, described supporters of Donald Trump as a “basket of deplorables.” In her new book, she says she regrets handing Republicans that political gift which may have energized Trump’s base.  (Ya think?)

However, her description of “what happened,” really lacks self-awareness:

“I understood that there were many Americans who, because of the financial crash, there was anger. And there was resentment. I knew that,” she told host Jane Pauley. “But I believed that it was my responsibility to try to offer answers to it, not to fan it. I think, Jane, that it was a mistake because a lot of people didn’t want to hear my plans. They wanted me to share their anger. And I should’ve done a better job of demonstrating, ‘I get it.’”

No, voters weren’t looking for a candidate who “shared their anger.”  We were looking for someone who didn’t treat our classified information as casually as he or she treated used Kleenex.

Anyway, you would think that the left would’ve learned that stereotyping and attacking Trump supporters isn’t working for them… politically, or in any other way.  But the Free Beacon reports that, no – actually — they haven’t:

California Gov. Jerry Brown (D.) compared President Donald Trump supporters to ignorant cave dwellers at a climate change event Monday in New York City.

“They’re both kind of very similar. You should check out the derivation of ‘Trump-ite’ and ‘troglodyte,’ because they both refer to people who dwell in deep, dark caves,” Brown said in remarks reported by Politico.

The California governor, speaking at an event during Climate Week NYC, said the election of  Trump has made it easier to promote climate-related policies. Trump is a “real adversary that is not believable, is not credible,” according to Brown.

I live in California, and I’ve seen Gov. Jerry Brown up close for far too long.  He was the worst Governor in our California’s history (’75-’83).  So apparently, the liberal voters in this state decided to elect him again in 2011 to finish the job and completely destroy the state.

Governor Brown has been ruining this state for decades, and is driving out all the “cave dwellers” like me.
