Joe Scarborough: My pet rock could have defeated Hillary Clinton in 2016

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.”
