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.

She then listed a series of controversial moments from Trump’s campaign, including his fight with a Muslim Gold Star family, criticism of a federal US judge of Mexican heritage and his insinuation that President Barack Obama wasn’t born in the US.

“I won’t stop calling out bigotry and racist rhetoric in this campaign,” Clinton said.

    It was important enough for her to mention, but she offers no correction to clarify her statement? Can we assume it isn’t important what her opinion on the matter is then? Does she believe it’s 49% or 0.005%? She admits she was wrong but doesn’t explain how? Well, I’m glad we’ve cleared all that up. Sigh
