Well you see Trump endorsed Moore, which makes it about Trump. Most evangelicals in Alabama voted for Moore too, which makes it about evangelical hypocrisy. If you want to pretend to be ignorant about Moore, I can understand why.

Trump campaigned on “Make America Great Again” by hating and excluding people his supporters did not like. These were mostly the “3Ms” of Mexicans, Muslims and the Media. You want to deny that whole Muslim ban thing? His attacking an Indiana born judge because “he’s a Mexican”? And so on?

Clinton’s attack on “deplorables” in context was about Trump’s base of racist, homophobic, Muslim hating Nazi “Heil Trumping” Richard Spencer types that Trump informs us are very good people. It was a completely fair comment about Trump’s hateful base that he was quite deliberately appealing to, and still does.
