It is widely believed that Hillary Clinton’s biggest mistake on the campaign trail against Donald Trump was calling half of his supporters a “basket full of deplorables.”


This misstep launched a thousand memes and even t-shirts.

It seems that Pete Buttigieg may have made the same mistake. In an interview, Buttigieg said that “anyone who supported this president is at best looking the other way on racism, at best.” Dilbert creator Scott Adams says it’s the end of his campaign.
