EYE guess it depends on what the definition of #deplorable(s) IS

Faux outrage alert!  Trump supporters have their knickers in a knot because Hillary Clinton had the nerve to say out loud what a lot of people were thinking.  That's right, they can dish out the name calling, personal attacks, and insults but they can't take them.  EYE don't condone name calling as a rule, but in this case, if the name fits you must accept.

EYE think Hillary Clinton meant to say the actions of some (not to be confused with all) of Donald Trump's supporters are deplorable

Let's be clear, after tolerating and promoting racism for their political gain, the GOP  officially nominated a racist/sexist/homophobic/misogynist as their candidate for President of the United States of America.   If that's not deplorable EYE don't know what IS.

EYE must give credit to the deplorable media for enabling Trump and his deplorable supporters.
The trouble with bias started long ago, and it was mostly created by Fox News, which began the practice of spewing slanted commentary dressed up like news reports to reinforce a political viewpoint. At the same time, Fox, with its helpers around the conservative media landscape, painted any and all reporting that fell even slightly to the left of the far-right line it created as “liberal bias.”
Covered by that broad brush was, of course, facts.
And somewhere in the midst of this massive media shift, factual reporting – the only sort of truly unbiased reporting there is – was replaced by “fair reporting.”
The definition of deplorable(s)
deplorable is defined as an adjective meaning either 'amentable' or 'deserving censure or contempt,' a synonym of 'wretched” or 'abominable.' But Clinton’s use in the plural, deplorables, marks the word as a noun—and deplorable is not defined as a noun in Merriam-Webster dictionaries. (Deplorableness is given as the noun form.)
Clinton’s use of deplorables is ambiguous: the word could be defined here as ‘people who are deplorable’ or ‘qualities or characteristics that are deplorable.’ Part of the ambiguity comes from the novelty of the usage, since deplorable is rarely used as a noun in this way.
