So, what you're saying is "Sure, a lot of Trump supporters can be seem as "deplorable", but a lot of Clinton's supporters can also be seen as "deplorable" too!"?
Although, I don't see how Omar Mateen's father can be charged with his son's crimes. And, if it's his fundamental approach to his religion that bothers you, I direct your attention to Mike Pence and his disturbing fundamentalist outlook.
Last I checked, Omar Mateen father's approach to his religion led to his son massacring gays and would see women locked in their houses under burkas with no education.
“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”
the associated or secondary meaning of a word or expression in addition to its explicit or primary meaning: A possible connotation of “home” is “a place of warmth, comfort, and affection.”.
the act of connoting; the suggesting of an additional meaning for a word or expression, apart from its explicit meaning.
something suggested or implied by a word or thing, rather than being explicitly named or described:
“Religion” has always had a negative connotation for me.
Logic. the set of attributes constituting the meaning of a term and thus determining the range of objects to which that term may be applied; comprehension; intension.
Do you disagree with the correctness of that statement?
Do you really think Mexican doctors, Mexican scientists, Mexican engineers are crossing the border packed like sardines in the back of rattle-trap trucks or are wading that mud hole they call the Rio Grande?
Do you think none of the people coming in are criminals?
But illegal immigrants, along with many legal immigrants if the MSM is to be believed (cough, cough, hack, hack), are saying this true statement about illegal Mexican immigrants is a characterization of all immigrants
Yes I most emphatically do!
No, I don't think that's the way Mexico sends us their engineers, scientists, doctors, or anyone for that matter. I don't think Mexico sends us criminals or illegal aliens.
Trump didn't qualify his statement with legal or illegal entry. He just said that Mexico is sending us their hardened criminals. His statement insinuates ALL MEXICANS.
the parts of a written or spoken statement that precede or follow a specific word or passage, usually influencing its meaning or effect:
You have misinterpreted my remark because you took it out of context.
the set of circumstances or facts that surround a particular event, situation, etc.
Mycology. the fleshy fibrous body of the pileus in mushrooms.
Hillary's statement qualified the overall nature of terrible, awful, deplorable people to racists, sexists and homophones, and the like. Do you disagree that those are deplorable characteristics?
That statement from Trump was not a single sentence. Are you saying none of it is true?
“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.
I see. So you believe there are no people in America who came here from Mexico. Interesting, if wholly ludicrous, concept.
What's so hard to comprehend?
The following is untrue and/or misleading.
According to DHS status indicators, over 199,000 criminal aliens have been booked into local Texas jails between June 1, 2011 and August 31, 2016. During their criminal careers, these criminal aliens were charged with more than 533,000 criminal offenses. Those arrests include 1,066 homicide charges; 63,382 assault charges; 15,647 burglary charges; 62,907 drug charges; 645 kidnapping charges; 38,234 theft charges; 41,894 obstructing police charges; 3,515 robbery charges; 5,603 sexual assault charges; and 7,984 weapons charges. Of the total criminal aliens arrested in that timeframe, over 132,000 or 66% were identified by DHS status as being in the US illegally at the time of their last arrest.
There's a difference between people who come from places, and people who are sent here from places. Trump's implication is that Mexico is involved in some kind of planned US invasion by deliberately infiltrating our country with there worst criminals. And, he's going to punish Mexico by forcing them to build and pay for a border wall.

No, it's because we feel we were shoehorned into that group falsely on someone else's "feelings" on the matter with zero proof, and a lot of generalization.
But go on with your false narrative.....
