Clinton puts many Trump backers in 'basket of deplorables'
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) — Hillary Clinton verbally banished half of Donald Trump's backers to a "basket of deplorables," and the Republican presidential nominee quickly pounced, saying Saturday she had smeared many Americans and would pay a heavy political price. Read the full story

This is dumb. But everybody (as you can see) is doing it. Maybe Clinton's people have figured out she's better off to just stay hidden and let other people campaign for her. Maybe they're right.
But never mind. Clinton and Trump are not equivalent in the scandal department because Trump is a sleazy Manhattan real estate developer and Clinton is, or was a the critical time, the highest-ranking diplomat of the most powerful nation on earth, a Secretary of haha State, and recognized all around as a possible, even probable, future president.

If it's equivalence you're looking for, what Trump did is more like what those guys who gave the Clinton foundation money did—tried to buy off a pol. Buy a little juice.
Trump may be a sleaze but he wasn’t the Secretary of State.
