GOP Official: Hillary is Going to ‘Go Down Like Monica Lewinsky’ in Trump Debate

FacebookIn a Wednesday interview with The Washington Post, a Florida Republican country chairman made an obscene joke when predicting that Hillary Clinton would lose a debate with Donald Trump.

The Post asked Bob Sutton, chairman of the Broward County GOP Executive Committee, about Trump’s comments that Hillary Clinton is playing the “woman’s card.” Sutton wasn’t all that concerned; “I think when Donald Trump debates Hillary Clinton she’s going to go down like Monica Lewinsky,” he said.

While Sutton is considered more of an establishment figure in local politics, most recently defeating a young Tea Party upstart to win his chairmanship. But he has also publicly backed controversial Trump comments before. “I think his priority is to keep Americans safe,” Sutton said of Trump’s Muslim ban, “I guess Trump wants the Muslim Americans and all Americans to be safe.”
