Gavin Newsom Overrules Hillary Clinton, Says Trump Voters Are ‘Not Deplorable’

California’s Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom has overruled Hillary Clinton by rebuking her infamous statement that supporters of President Donald Trump are “deplorable.”

During the 2016 election, Clinton faced backlash when she used the phrase “basket of deplorables” to describe Trump supporters.

“To just be grossly generalistic, you can put half of Trump supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables,” failed Democrat candidate Clinton said at the time.

“Right? Racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic, you name it.”

Gov. Newsom, who appears to be preparing to run for president in 2024, addressed Hillary’s comments and his fears about “Trumpism” during an appearance at The Texas Tribune Festival over the weekend.

“I worry about Trump,” Newsom said.

“I worry about Trumpism.

“I worry more about Tucker Carlson.

“I worry about Ron DeSantis. He’s a bully.

“He threatened the Special Olympics with $27 million in fines. Who does that?

“Texas Gov. Greg Abbott is light-years ahead in policy, but DeSantis weaponized it, the next level.

“So yeah, I worry about Trump because Trump’s proven that democracy is now partisan, which is remarkable.”

Newsom said of the migrant flights.

“Look, it’s clear that DeSantis broke the law,” he alleged.

“Question is which law did he break.

“Did he break the laws of his own state?

“Did he break federal law?

“But one thing he did is he broke with precedent, any precedent of decency and honor.

“His lack of character on display.

“He comes into another state — your state — to try to find pawns in a political game, rounds them up, sends them to an island, and then fund-raises off it.

“What does that say about his character and the character of the Republican Party that celebrated that act of cruelty and dehumanization?”


Newsom then overruled Hillary Clinton by declaring that Trump voters are “not deplorable.”

“I get why people believe this stuff,” he said.

“They’re not deplorable.

“The people promoting the BS are.

“At the end of the day, there’s this quest we’re all on for belonging.

“We all want to be loved.”
