'Deplorable' and proud: Some Trump supporters embrace the label

Well, that didn't take long.

Just days after Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton said half of Donald Trump's supporters make up a "basket of deplorables," some of those supporters are embracing the label. Among those whom Clinton dismissed as the "basket" cases there is a sense of pride in being insulted by the candidate they despise.

A wide variety of "deplorable" merchandise is already available online. On the shopping website Etsy, one can find deplorable T-shirts, key chains, car decals, buttons, pendants, coffee mugs and even a deplorable pocket watch.

The Trump campaign hasn't yet embraced the term, but it did already put out an ad blasting Clinton for the statement. “People like you, you and you — deplorable,” the narrator in the ad says. “You know what’s deplorable? Hillary Clinton viciously demonizing hardworking people like you.”
