Joe Biden: Donald Trump's Supporters are 'Dregs of Society'

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Speaking to guests at the Human Rights Campaign dinner on Saturday night, Biden accused President Donald Trump of using the White House as a literal bully pulpit and of being an ally to forces of intolerance.


`Forces of intolerance remain determined to undermine and roll back the progress you have made,` the former vice president warned his audience.

`This time they-not you-have an ally in the White House,` he said.

`They`re a small percentage of the American people, virulent people. Some of them, the dregs of society,` Biden said."


In September 2016, presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was roundly criticized for making the following astute observation:

You know, to just 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.

Clinton was spot on when she opined that you could put half of Trump`s supporters into a basket of racist, sexist, homophobic deplorables, and I would add that you could put the other half into a basket of fucking morons.

After almost two years of Trump`s chaotic and racist rule, his base, roughly 36% of the population, is still strongly behind him.

At this point in time to call Trump`s supporters a basket of deplorables almost sounds like a term of endearment. Joe Biden is spot on, some of them (I would say most of them) are the dregs of society. Screw Trump`s white evangelical supporters who worship an execrable abomination who is is the antithesis of everything that Jesus preached. Screw Trump`s racist supporters who demonize immigrants, and seek to make America white again. Screw Trump`s redneck supporters who want to see women, barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen fixing apple pie and fried chicken.

Screw these dregs of society, who are nothing but a speed bump in history as our democracy races to a multi-culture future.
