Glenn Beck, conservative pundit, endorses Hillary Clinton for president

Noted conservative pundit Glenn Beck thinks Donald Trump has gone too far and has officially decided to endorse Hillary Clinton for president, to the shock of many.

"It is not acceptable to ask a moral, dignified man to cast his vote to help elect an immoral man who is absent decency or dignity," Beck wrote in a Facebook post Saturday. "If the consequence of standing against Trump and for principles is indeed the election of Hillary Clinton, so be it. At least it is a moral, ethical choice."

An outspoken Republican and founder of The Blaze, Beck has been vocal about his dislike for Clinton, once calling her a "stereotypical bitch." However, Beck seemed to have a sudden change of heart following the release of audio in which Trump talks of grabbing women "by the pussy."

"The alternative does not offer a moral person the same opportunity," the Facebook post continued. "If one helps to elect an immoral man to the highest office, then one is merely validating his immorality, lewdness, and depravity."

Beck also says that Clinton's policies can be blocked once she is in office and Republicans should not simply vote for Trump so she doesn't get elected.
