‘Pawn Star’ host says endorsing Republican candidates bad for business, but sticks to his guns

While celebrities line up to sing, dance and raise funds for Hillary Clinton, one reality television star said his support of a Republican hurt him financially.

Rick Harrison, of History channel’s “Pawn Stars,” told CNN’s Chris Moody that when he came out in support of Florida Sen. Marco Rubio for president, his business paid the price.

“I suddenly became famous and I was the one willing to throw my career away to endorse a Republican,” Harrison said. “When you endorse a Republican, everyone sort of frowns on you.”

Moody asked Harrison what he thought of Hillary Clinton’s negotiating skills.

“I can’t really think of anything she actually did,” Harrison said. “You have the Ukraine situation, which I could go on and on about. You have the Middle East falling apart. I think she was a very bad negotiator.”

Harrison also talked about the dangers of a politically correct society.

“You get these massive liberal PC police, they don’t see the law of unintended consequences,” he said.

“You have some cities that are saying that if you have a man who feels like he’s a woman, he can use the women’s restroom. I guarantee you that will be taken advantage of by some very bad men who want to go into a bathroom where there’s young ladies. That will happen if you pass a law like that. It’s not a perfect world. You’ll never make it a perfect world.”

Especially not if Hillary becomes president.
