Hillary Clinton’s campaign is urging her surrogates to blame the media for having a double standard if they're pressed about her derogatory dig at "half" of Donald Trump supporters being "deplorables," The Washington Post reports

According to the Post, the advice is contained in a memo, "'Deplorable' Comment Talking Points," sent out Saturday afternoon to Democrats preparing for TV interviews or other appearances on Clinton's behalf.

Clinton on Saturday expressed "regret" for being “grossly generalistic" and using the characterization of "half" – even as she insisted Trump is amplifying bigoted views

But the memo says Clinton has "apologized" – a word she didn't use – for saying "most" rather than "some" – and that "obviously not everyone supporting Trump is part of the alt right," the Post reports.

"If pushed," surrogates should shame the media, the memo advises, according to the Post.

"I think we can all agree that if Donald Trump said something controversial about Clinton supporters, it wouldn’t have been in his top 10 list of offensive statements in day," the advice reads, the Post reports.

"It’s well past time the press stopped grading Trump on a curve. So is the press going to cover this story in the right [context], or are they going to hold Hillary to a different standard again? Are they going to make more out of this story than they made out of the racist, misogynistic Trump comments that got us here in the first place?"
