Scar­bor­ough: Pet rock could have de­feated Clin­ton in 2016

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — Seth McLaugh­lin

For­mer Florida Rep. Joe Scar­bor­ough said Mon­day his pet rock could have top­pled Demo­cratic nom­i­nee Hillary Clin­ton in the 2016 pres­i­den­tial election, thanks to all the bag­gage she car­ried into the con­test.

“My pet rock could have got­ten 45 per­cent against Hillary Clin­ton,” Mr. Scar­bor­ough said on MSNBC’s “Morn­ing Joe.” “Maybe if my pet rock didn’t make any gaffes in the three de­bates, my pet rock could have beaten Hillary Clin­ton.”

Mr. Scar­bor­ough, a Repub­li­can, said the election was not about Pres­i­dent Trump, who won the elec­toral col­lege and lost the pop­u­lar vote to Mrs. Clin­ton by a 48 per­cent-to-46 per­cent mar­gin.

“This election was not about Don­ald Trump,” he said. “It was all about Hillary and Bill Clin­ton.”
