30. Look at the other half of her statement

And make sure others do to. She says that HALF of Trump's supporters are deplorable. And if the people you know fit her description, you're not going to flip them. But if they are NOT bigots, then you can point to her description of the other half, those who want change. And you can work on them.

"But the other basket -- and I know this because I see friends from all over America here ... but that other basket are people who feel that the government has left them down, the economy has let them down, nobody cares about them, nobody worries about what happens to their lives and their futures -- they're just desperate for change. ... Those are people we have to understand and empathize with as well."
