A Deplorable Weekend Open Thread

Well, not "deplorable" by most standards, but if you're the kind of person that overheats in mild, 70-some degree northeastern morning temperatures you may have slightly different sensitivies. 

As the Clinton campaign continues to blow off any questions about her health they're also left to defend attacks against her broad-brushed approach by attacking half of Trump supporters as racist, sexist, homophobic and every other "-ism" in the book.   They even have "Deporable" t-shirts now in couterprotest.

Meanwhile, liberals are trying to spin this as a positive for Hillary:

“One result of this conversation is that the country is actually debating how many of Donald Trump’s supporters are anti-Semitic, racist, sexist,” said Neera Tanden, president of the Center for American Progress and one of the top outside supporters connected to the former secretary of state. “In a world where we wish that number was zero, this debate shines a light on the voice that Donald Trump has given to some attitudes that deeply trouble Americans in this election cycle.” 

But it's not zero... apparently it's half... and they're starting to get pretty pissed off about it.   Anybody recall when it was only 47%?   How'd that work out?

Hillary's likeability is also stumbling...   her poll numbers are as well.   Michigan is definitely in play for the Republican Party.   For starters, the state already polls right on immigration, but on top of that they're looking at this news from Ford Motor Company and their decision to move much of it's production to Mexico.

(Can you guess which candidate's base that might rile up?)

Oh yeah, and Iowa will probably go red this year.

That's not the only bad news for Democrats.   They're also facing another email scandal from this week stemming from even more leaked documents (courtesy of Guccifer 2.0) featuring some DNC strategies, analysis, many internal memos and email doozies like the one below, which hints at a possible pay-to-play scheme...  mostly because it uses the exact phrase "pay-to-play":

Well...  at least we kept it deplorable.

Have a great week (or however long it takes me to return)

BONUS:  Let's cap this off with another truly "deplorable" person...
