Clinton expresses regret for saying 'half' of Trump supporters are 'deplorables'

New York (CNN) Hillary Clinton expressed "regret" Saturday for comments in which she said "half" of Donald Trump's supporters are "deplorables," meaning people who are racist, sexist, homophobic or xenophobic.

"Last night I was 'grossly generalistic,' and that's never a good idea. I regret saying 'half' -- that was wrong," Clinton said in a statement in which she also vowed to call out "bigotry" in Trump's campaign.

The Democratic presidential nominee sparked an uproar late Friday when she described Trump's supporters at a fundraiser.

"To just be grossly generalistic, you can put half of Trump supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables," Clinton said. 

"Right? Racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic, you name it."

When the Clinton voters realize she thinks the same thing about them it will be too late. Wake up dems! Clinton thinks you are deplorable too!

What a joke - she expressed regret for saying "half" of Trump supporters are deplorable. She wishes she would have said "all" instead of "half". She is the one that is deplorable with all her lies and deceit.

What exactly does she mean when she says she regrets saying half -- that was wrong?? Does she mean all the people or none. She did not finish her lame apology.

Less than half an apology. Look at this as her way of doing things.
