Republican vice presidential candidate Mike Pence said that Hillary Clinton’s claim that half of Donald Trump’s supporters belong in a “basket of deplorables” was the worst comment he’s heard from a candidate for national office in his lifetime.

Pence told Fox News’ Bret Baier that Clinton’s comment wasn’t “off-the-cuff remark,” noting she had said it before. The Indiana governor argued that it was worse than Mitt Romney’s “47 percent” comment from 2012.

“For Hillary Clinton to literally — and it wasn’t just the basket of deplorables, but to say that millions of Americans were irredeemable or not American, and then to call them racist, sexist, homophobic, Islamaphobic, I think what you saw there in prepared speech — it’s important your viewers understand that,” Pence said. “This wasn’t an off-the-cuff remark. This was a statement as part of a prepared speech. This ‘basket of deplorables’ is a line that she’s used at least one other time before.” – READ MORE
