[Content Note: Bigotry.]

I've got a new piece at Shareblue about unearthed audio of Donald Trump's campaign manager Kellyanne Conway in which she essentially agrees with Hillary Clinton that some portion of Trump supporters are a basket of deplorables:
One of the interesting aspects of Donald Trump getting the Republican nomination despite not being the favorite of the GOP establishment is that he's had trouble finding people to work with and for him from that establishment.

So he's ended up with a running mate who endorsed Ted Cruz and a campaign manager whose past criticisms keep coming back to haunt him.

First, there was video of Kellyanne Conway having said her new boss "built a lot of his businesses on the backs of the little guy" and that people "suffered" as a result.

And now there's audio of Conway from this past February essentially conceding Hillary Clinton's assertion that a segment of Trump' supporters have objectionable views.

...At the 26th minute, Conway says Trump's "supporters, by the way, have been downright nasty to everyone else" and that "some of his supporters are way over their skeeze and have been downright nasty."
There's more at the link, including audio of the interview, for anyone who'd like to have a listen for themselves!
