MSNBC host Joe Scarborough blamed Republican midterm losses on the GOP’s “stupid caravan conspiracy,” during “Morning Joe” Wednesday, and said President Donald Trump miscalculated by focusing on immigration.

“You look state after state, Nevada, Arizona, again, two states with quite a few Hispanics there. And there is no doubt that what the president was considering great strategy to bring out his base — you know, this stupid caravan conspiracy theory, which he hasn’t talked about since Election Day, which Fox News barely touches on, right? It ends up that’s devastating there,” Scarborough said.

“Let’s look back. The House, bigger losses for Republicans at any time since Watergate,” he continued. (RELATED: Joe Scarborough Suggests Trump Plans To Have Marines Shoot ‘9-Year-Old Girls; If They Throw Rocks At Soldiers)


Scarborough also said the GOP’s caravan talking points caused them to underperform in the Senate.

“The Senate, they had every structural advantage. They’re going to end up picking up maybe two. They should have picked up five, six, seven, eight. And then you go to Arizona. Democrats haven’t been in control of — had a majority there in the congressional delegation since the 1960s,” he said.
