Hillary Clinton’s supporters and select media outlets who obey her campaign’s commands are attempting to downplay leaked fundraiser audio of Hillary Clinton describing Sanders’ supporting millennials as “living in their parents’ basement” who “don’t see much of a future” economically.
Hillary’s #BasketOfDeplorables has now been eclipsed by #BasementDwellers, and it’s trending #1 on Twitter this morning.
Nothing says democracy like rigging primaries, deleting subpoenaed evidence, and calling voters names. #BasementDwellers

Funny thing about Hillary's #BasementDwellers comment is that she implies economy is great, yet says they're stuck in parent's basements.

The Clinton campaign is teaming up with some Sanders supporters to do damage control:

Considering Sanders has endorsed and is now campaigning for Hillary, that’s not a big surprise.
Clinton’s defenders aren’t enjoying the hashtag at all:

1. Taken in context, HRC's comments about #BasementDwellers make aren't an insult, and are completely true. But BernieBros gotta BernieBro.

C'mon, Millennials, U are too intelligent & too educated to not read what Hillary actually said before forming an opinion #BasementDwellers

Wow. So looks like ya'll took that out of context. Soo not shocked by the fake outrage. #BasementDwellers

Nice to see all the uninfomed Trumpkins on this hashtag. Berners READ what Hillary said. She expressed empathy NOT disdain #BasementDwellers

#BasementDwellers The people outraged at her comment clearly don't understand context or ignore it to feign indignation.

The term #BasementDwellers is an insult. HRC, clearly never used this term. Listen w an open mind to all she said, she's not insulting any1

Hillary didn't say #BasementDwellers. She acknowledged the economic reality of a generation still suffering from the Republican recession.

Oh FFS. I wish conservatives were critical thinkers capable of parsing nuance & context. #BasementDwellers

I see trolls are trying to get something going with #BasementDwellers that is completely out of context.

FYI Clinton didn't actually say #BasementDwellers. She was talking about young ppl being victims of the Bush Recession.

And still being forced to live in basements after almost eight years of Obama’s “recovery”?
