A Democratic senator unloaded on President Trump’s supporters this week, viciously referring to the Commander-in-Chief’s recent patriotic rally in Tampa, Florida as a “dark carnival.”
Hawaii Senator Brian Schatz slammed GOP supporters on social media Tuesday evening, saying “we have no equivalent” on the left comparable to Trump’s “dark carnival,” savagely adding the crowd was “out of their minds.”
“We have no equivalent to the dark carnival that is a trump rally. This is not a thing on the left. We just argue about healthcare and climate and sometimes relitigate 2016 but we are not actually out of our minds,” he tweeted.

WATCH: Hillary Doubles-Down, Says Trump Supporters STILL 'Deplorable'
Former Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton doubled-down on her vicious description of Donald Trump voters; standing by her previous comments where she labeled his supporters as a “basket of deplorables.”
The doomed nominee was speaking with CBS News when she made the surprising statement, saying that she thought then-candidate Trump was “behaving in a deplorable manner,” and that his “appeals to voters were deplorable.”
“You can put half of Trump’s supporters in what I call a basket of deplorables,” said the democrat during a campaign event ahead of the 2016 general election.
“Why do you think that word ‘deplorable’ was circulating in your mind?” asked CBS’ Jane Pauley.
“I thought Trump was behaving in a deplorable manner. I thought a lot of his appeals to voters were deplorable. I thought his behavior, as we saw on the ‘Access Hollywood’ tape was deplorable. And there were a large number of people who didn’t care. It did not matter to them,” said Hillary.
“But you offended some people who didn’t personally feel deplorable at all,” Pauley pressed.
“I don’t buy that, I don’t buy that. I’m sorry I gave them a political gift of any kind, but I don’t think it was determinative,” responded the former Secretary of State.

WATCH: Trump Compares Pelosi’s ‘CRUMBS’ to Hillary’s ‘DEPLORABLES’
President Donald Trump trashed House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s “pathetic crumbs” comments on Thursday, equating the former Speaker’s delusional rhetoric with Hillary Clinton’s much-maligned “deplorables” speech during the 2016 election.
The President was speaking with Republicans at a retreat in West Virginia where he touted the higher wages and big bonuses paid out in the aftermath of the GOP tax cuts; blasting Pelosi’s out-of-touch response to the booming US economy.
“We were waiting until February, and then we got hit with these corporations giving tremendous bonuses to everybody that Nancy Pelosi called ‘crumbs.’ That was bad That could be like ‘deplorable.’ Does that make sense? Trump asked.
“Deplorable and crumbs? Those two words, they seem to have a resemblance. I hope it has the same meaning. She called it crumbs when people are getting $2,000, $3,000… that’s not crumbs that’s a lot money.”
