WASHINGTON — Joining a wave of Republicans who have detracted from GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump in recent days, conservative pundit Glenn Beck has officially endorsed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
Beck made the announcement on his Facebook page over the weekend, saying it is “a moral, ethical choice.”
Beck adds that Clinton isn’t an ideal candidate in his eyes — “her tactics are blatant and juvenile” — but “her nominees can be blocked, her proposed laws voted down.”
“Trump stepping down does not guarantee a Clinton win, but it does guarantee that the Republican party still stands for something, still allows its members to maintain thier [sic] own self respect and that it still has a future,” Beck wrote.
Beck doesn’t sound especially fond of Clinton; rather, he is adamantly opposed to Trump, who drew perhaps the most negative press of the election cycle over the weekend when tape of him making crude sexual remarks to Billy Bush was released.
The top comments on Beck’s post were generally negative, ripping the pundit for bailing on Trump.
