Deplorable Math

Back of the envelope math: 50 million "not America" Americans in Hillary's "basket of deplorables." So much for #StrongerTogether
50 Million Deplorables

I have friends taking issue with my math regarding the 50 million Americans that Hillary Clinton is writing off as irredeemably “not America.”

It’s possible that I’ve overstated, and it’s really something like a mere 30 million.

Since her description was delivered with a wink and a nudge (you know, “those people”…) there’s no precise number available. The only one who really knows how many millions are in Hillary’s Big Basket o’ Deplorables is… Hillary Clinton.

Perhaps someone should ask her.

When she’s well enough to take questions, of course.

“Now I tell you this,” continued Socrates, “because even the wealthiest cannot hold aloof from husbandry. For the pursuit of it is in some sense a luxury as well as a means of increasing one’s estate and of training the body in all that a free man should be able to do…

To me indeed it seems strange, if any free man has come by a possession pleasanter than this, or has found out an occupation pleasanter than this or more useful for winning a livelihood.”
