Former New Jersey Gov. Christie Whitman (R) says Hillary Clinton worries her less than Donald Trump.

“She is more stable. Hillary Clinton’s problems are within the non-normal normal that we’re used to,” Whitman said Friday on MSNBC.

{mosads}“I mean, we’ve seen flawed candidates take over the presidency so she’s not off the spectrum,” she added.

Trump’s issues, Whitman said, are another story.

“[It’s] the way he’s treated groups of people, demonizing them for their ethnic background,” she said.

“The way he’s taken on this judge in California is very outrageous and to me very scary for the future of the country,” Whitman added, citing Judge Gonzalo Curiel’s role in lawsuits against Trump.

“I worry about him from an international stage where he’s just not willing to show any kind of a coherent path forward because he thinks that’s a great way to treat both your allies and your enemies. That’s a scary thing.”

However, the former governor said she is not likely to vote for either Trump, the GOP’s presumptive nominee, or Clinton, the Democratic front-runner.

“[Clinton] says it’ll be another four years of Barack Obama,” she said. “I certainly don’t want that. I don’t like the way this administration has handled the job for the last eight years or seven-and-a-half years. I’m not sure that’s exactly what would happen.

“Be that as it may, I probably will just write-in to show a protest because we’ve allowed this system to get out of control. If I had to make that choice, I’m going to write-in probably.”
