Robby Mook, Hillary’s campaign manager, confirmed Hillary’s earlier statements that many of Trump’s supporters — she said half — but Mook said “many” are deplorable.
Chuck Todd asked Mook about a new ad that makes some good points and refers to the statement on deplorables.
TODD: “I want to play a new ad that the Trump campaign is hitting on Hillary Clinton and get you to respond to it on the other side.”
CLINTON: “Why aren’t I 50 points ahead, you might ask?”
NARRATOR: “Maybe it’s because the director of the FBI said you lied about your e-mails.”
COMEY: “But there was classified material e-mails.”
NARRATOR: “Maybe it’s because your policies allowed ISIS and terrorism to spread. Or maybe it’s because you call Americans deplorable.”
TODD: “So it’s that last part, the deplorable, and everything they’ve put together in the ad. Anything in that ad that tells you it is not an effective hit on secretary Clinton?”
MOOK: “Well, a lot of it simply isn’t true. You know, the FBI said that there was not — no wrongdoing, that they would bring against secretary Clinton. I think a lot of the people that stand by Donald Trump are deplorable, and that the things they say are deplorable. You know, Trump has had a really bad week.”
