Baskets of Deplorables T-shirts

Baskets of Deplorables is an inspired phrase, coined by Hillary Clinton to describe some of Donald Trump's supporters. It's evocative, funny and has a modern sound to it. Trump's supporters, and indeed Trump himself, took the phrase and appropriated it to a certain extent. At one point Trump made a grand entrance to a rally, with the words Les Deplorables (in Les Miserables type font) emblazoned behind him. There are also some inspired t-shirts out there, and as much as I am not a supporter of Donald Trump, I think some of the Deplorables shirts are pretty amusing. Here are just a few of the hundreds available on

Should you be so inclined, you could do a lot worse than to buy a few of these. They'll be useful now, thru the election, and after the election. They will be a great memento of the debacle that is Election 2016. I don't know about Amazon's return policy on t-shirts, but it's probably pretty....ahem...liberal.

Have fun, and don't forget to vote!
