The former host of CNN’s flagship news program, “State of the Union,” claimed he was “crazed” about Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign.
During a February interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, Joe Scarborough, who had left the network in 2017, said he would not be watching the upcoming Democratic National Convention because of “politics and the political system.”
“I’ve always said I’m going to stay home,” Scarborough said.
“But I think you have to stay in a bubble because the politics is a fucking mess.”
In the interview, Scarborough said he thought Clinton was “crazy” and that she would be the “first woman president of the United States.”
“So I just think that she’s a crazy person,” Scarborough told Cuomo.
“I mean, the way she’s going, you know, the rhetoric, the political moves and all that stuff, I just feel like that’s really the way the world is right now.
I just can’t stand that kind of bullshit.”
But the politics are a fucking dumpster fire.””
And so, yeah, I’m not going to be watching.
But the politics are a fucking dumpster fire.”
Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee for president, has repeatedly accused the Clinton campaign of rigging the election and has dismissed the allegations.
“It was rigged by Crooked Hillary, by her people, by the DNC, and all of the establishment media,” Trump said in a tweet on Monday.
“Trump is not going anywhere until she is forced to drop out of the race!”
He also claimed the Democratic National Committee was behind the hacking of the emails of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
The “State Of The Union” hosts have not previously denied that they were “crazy.”
In an interview with “Fox & Friends” on April 26, Scarborough, now a CNN commentator, said that he believed Clinton would become president.
“You’re gonna have a lot more candidates running for president than you have now, and a lot less money than we have now,” Scarborough continued.
Scarborough added that he thought the Clintons would be “uncomfortable” with the fact that “they’ve lost the election.”
“What we’re going to see is the end of the Clintons as we know them,” Scarborough added.
“We’re going be looking at the Clintons, who are now the Clintons.
We’re going, we’re gonna be looking in the mirror, and we’re just going to go, ‘You know what, we can’t go on.'”
