Hillary Clinton insulting Trump voters is old news. But in a new interview the former secretary of State suggests that the deplorable population of the United States may be much larger than she previously claimed.

For readers too young to remember the presidential election of 2016, a standard applause line for Mrs. Clinton when speaking to crowds of wealthy coastal donors involved expressing her disapproval of millions of her fellow Americans. Here’s part of the transcript from one such event published by Time magazine in September of 2016:

  Doug Schoen: Hillary vs. Trump in 2020? If Clinton is serious, here's best way for her to defeat the president Even when she is out of the running for president, Hillary Clinton is still one of the most prominent voices in the Democratic Party.After months out of the limelight, Hillary Clinton has reentered the public sphere, leading to a great deal of speculation about whether the former Democratic presidential candidate is seriously considering a rematch against President Trump in 2020.

During her 2016 campaign for president, Hillary and her team laid out a comprehensive progressive vision for America’s future. A fair tax system. Making sure the wealthy, Wall Street, and corporations pay their fair share in taxes.

You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right?

[Laughter/applause]

The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic — you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up.

Since then, Mrs. Clinton has at times expressed regret for such remarks and at other times hurled still more insults when describing people who chose not to vote for her. But until this week she seemed concerned mainly with accusing Republicans of moral failings.

In a new podcast interview with former Obama campaign manager David Plouffe, Mrs. Clinton says she was surprised to find out in 2016 how many sexists there were in both parties. And Mrs. Clinton, who continues throughout the interview to cling to the discredited theory that Russian interference is partly responsible for her 2016 loss, claims that one of the Democrats now running for President will actually be used by both Republicans and Russians to swing the election.

Tulsi Gabbard should take Hillary Clinton’s 'Russian asset' smear as a compliment

  Tulsi Gabbard should take Hillary Clinton’s 'Russian asset' smear as a compliment Hillary Clinton will go down in history as one of the worst presidential candidates of all time. So if the failed 2016 nominee is bashing one of the 2020 Democratic hopefuls, that’s a sign the candidate is actually doing something right. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); Clinton has a recurring theme of childishly decrying everything she doesn’t like as “Russian meddling.

During her tenure as United States Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton drew controversy by using a private email server for official public communications rather than using official State Department

Hillary Clinton finds more reasons why she lost last year's election — and it's still not really her. On the other hand, she blames Comey for writing to Congress less than two weeks before the election informing them that the FBI potentially found new evidence in their criminal investigation into her use

The Journal’s Ken Thomas writes:

The former secretary of state said this week in an interview with David Plouffe, a former Obama campaign manager, that President Trump is “Vladimir Putin’s dream.” She said Republicans would attempt to boost a third-party candidate to help the president’s re-election in key battleground states and implied that they would choose someone Russia would support.

“I’m not making any predictions, but I think they’ve got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate,” Mrs. Clinton said. A spokesman said she was referring to Republicans.

“She’s a favorite of the Russians,” Mrs. Clinton said of the Democratic candidate. “They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far.”

To buy into the new Clinton conspiracy theory, it seems that one must also believe that American voters are not equipped to resist the power of fake news from Russia.

38 people cited for violations in Clinton email probe

  38 people cited for violations in Clinton email probe The State Department has completed its internal investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton's use of private email and found violations by 38 people, some of whom may face disciplinary action. The department determined that those 38 people were "culpable" in 91 cases of sending classified information in messages that ended up in Clinton's personal email. The 38 are current and former State Department officials but were not identified in the report that was sent to Congress this week.The investigation covered 33,000 emails that Clinton turned over for review after her use of the private email account became public.

The media and academia embarrassed themselves Clinton , on the other hand, was said to be “reaching for not just a win but a mandate,” and the article

WASHINGTON: Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton has said she " deplores the tone" of the presidential campaign of her Republican rival Donald Trump, who recently used a vulgar term to describe her, but is not surprised by his "hateful and incendiary rhetoric". "I really deplore the tone of

Previous efforts to present Russian online messages as decisive in the 2016 U.S. election have led to some laughable results. But Mrs. Clinton is keeping the faith that she was robbed in 2016 and insists this week that “a lot more happened than has been admitted publicly.” Despite the Mueller report’s finding of no collusion, she suggests that President Trump is compromised. “I don’t know what Putin has on him, whether it’s both personal and financial—I assume it is,” she tells Mr. Plouffe.

Beyond the Russians, she talks about an effort by Trump 2020 campaign chief Brad Parscale to “manipulate more voters’ minds.”

For voters who tend to believe their minds are not so easily manipulated, Mrs. Clinton also offers a history lesson. She notes that the current impeachment effort will be more challenging than the Watergate inquiry she worked on as a young congressional aide, in part because of all the new media competition.

Back in Nixon days there were just three commercial broadcast television networks, plus dominant newspapers. Now, she says, “I think it’s a lot harder for Americans to know what they’re supposed to believe.”

She tells the story of dealing with questions from reporter Sam Donaldson in the 1970s, rather than today’s myriad online media competitors. “It was a much more controllable environment,” she laments.

Of course many Americans have known for a long time that they don’t want a few media gatekeepers telling them what to believe. And they’re skeptical of anyone trying to control their information environment.

As for Mrs. Clinton, her views on the subject may help explain the results of the 2016 election and her fears about 2020. Is she really concerned about the alleged ability of foreigners to manipulate voters’ minds—or about her own party’s inability?
