A (sober?) Bill Clinton said during a Campaign rally in Florida that Donald Trump's supporters are REDNECKS. Or is it RED NECKS? At any rate, he declared himself to be a RedNeck too...which is why he knows what he's talking about.

Source: www.foxnews.com...

Given the context, I don't think former President Clinton was being complimentary. In my opinion, publically degrading an entire group of Americans like that is beneath the dignity of a former U.S. President. His wife calling half of Trump supporters "Deplorable" is understandable, considering who she is at heart. But a former U.S. President shouldn't insult citizens of the nation that he swore to serve.

Kinda ironic coming from the former governor of Arkansas.

So then you would agree with what he said?


Trump's 'standard redneck' base is what I grew up in


It would appear that you do.

Billy is about as redneck as they come.

Anyhow, I live in Florida..outside the everglades.
in my lil township, most are Trump supporters..and I would certainly classify everyone here as redneck. trucks, airboats, fishermen (I also enjoy fishing though).

Meh...it is what it is. I dont see redneck as a major insult..just a "microaggression" perhaps and a overgeneralization of southern trump supporters.

That's funny because Donald is anything but what people label as a redneck type of person.

My intention for this election is that anyone trying to skew actual votes or vote counts in any manner whatsoever is mysteriously sabotaged.

Bill said that Trump's base is mostly RedNecks. That's all Trump supporters. He has millions and millions of us who live north of whatever divides North/South in this country.

I'm saying that these "rednecks" are the same people that voted for him in two elections.
Maybe in those twenty years they wised up a little.

In the south, most of his supporters are rednecks. But then again so is most of the population. Redneck doesn't always mean you're an intolerant bigot. I fail to see how this is a crazy statement.

He said Trump's base, not all.

And there are rednecks up north as well.

And now they are voting for Trump?

That is, as you say, ironic.

LOL

Now the Democrat smear campaign against Americans is up to 75% of the population.

Baskets, Buckets, and now Barrels.

Bill Clinton is crazy as Hell.

Another baseless thread. Check your own source:


Bill Clinton suggested this week that GOP nominee Donald Trump's base is comprised mostly of "rednecks."

"The other guy's base is what I grew up in," the former president said during a campaign stop in Fort Meyers, Fla. "You know, I'm basically your standard redneck."


Insult? That's reaching. But whatever floats your sinking boat.

I don't like the word redneck. It is insulting. I prefer deploreables.

I don't think I would start calling people rednecks until you can read the directions on a shampoo bottle.

I could do that when I was 5.

nah, trump supporters are mostly gullible, not necessarily "rednecks."

I know rednecks... some of my best friends are rednecks, and trump is no redneck.. .he's an "orange-face."

Rednecks in general work their asses off, take care of their families, and love Jesus.

They are the backbone of this country.

Perhaps Bill was complementing Trump?
