Trump calls everyone but his MAGA followers "Vermin"

 Hillary Clinton once called Donald Trump's followers "deplorables," and the nation went crazy. She was skewered by both the Left and Right for dehumanizing the very people that hate Mexicans, women, liberals, and gays. Good people who just happen to hate us all. 

And the criticism was deserved. One should not call other Americans "deplorable."
