U.S. Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus has a penchant for doling out interesting and unconventional names for new warships, but a petition currently on the White House website wants the next major warship to be named something that may be too outlandish even for him.
The petition suggests that the next major vessel be christened USS The Deplorables, as the petition notes, to honor those citizens who rose up to defend America and the Constitution from the globalists.
The name is taken from a remark Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton made on the campaign trail to refer to supporters of President-elect Donald Trump. "You know, just to be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trumps supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables, Clinton said at a rally in September. "The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic you name it. And, unfortunately, there are people like that. And he has lifted them up.

Ship's Motto: "We will NOT be Slaves again!"
Make it the latest and greatest nuclear powered aircraft carrier!
Satire, I’m sure.
Has the left ever done anything that wasn’t childish?
Les Deplorables, Trump Rally
SIGN THE PETITION!
Multi-word ship names normally don't include articles.
Where do I sign the petition?
I wear the name proudly, as do tens of millions of others.
As a reminder of the close call having the most clinically insane, criminal presidential candidate, and ALMOST first female president in U.S. history.
SS Deplorables it is!
As a consolation prize for patriots, I would vote for USS Hillary for the next NAVY garbage scow launched, if they are still in use...
Satire, I hope.
(As for me, I want to forget the b!tch that said it).
Deplorable McDeplorable Face
I would serve proudly.
On the other hand, would I serve on a ship named after a sodomite? When hell freezes over!
Who was the genius who politicized the naming of warships? Naming ships after perverts or living persons trivializes an honorable tradition: people who have displayed heroism certainly deserve the honor; few would debate that!
What's heroic about being a sodomite?
The Indefatigable Deplorable.
How about the USS Leadership.... Or USS American Great Again
I like the name Boaty McBoatface.
I love the idea. I am a proud Deplorable...I even have a t-shirt that reads that.
USS Deplorables. I’ll take it.
USS THE SULLIVANS
