Because they really are unhinged and that whole basket of deplorables thing doesn’t apply to all of them, but it clearly applies to some of them. They really are deplorable. There’s just no getting around it.
A new analysis by Nate Silver over at Five Thirty Eight shows that if only women cast ballots in the 2016 presidential election, Hillary Clinton would dominate at the polls with a commanding 458 electoral votes over Donald Trump’s 80.
If only men voted, Trump would take 350 to Clinton’s 188.
And thus, some of the Republican nominee’s most ardent supporters began tweeting about repealing the 19th Amendment of the Constitution, which in 1920 gave women the right to vote.
By mid-afternoon Wednesday, the hashtag #Repealthe19th had become equal parts earnest wish on behalf of the Trump faithful and a a series of tweets lampooning the GOP standard-bearer’s supporters.
They’re insane. And deplorable. And they aren’t Americans. Not in any meaningful sense.
