“When people voted for Donald Trump, they knew he wasn’t an angel,” Stewart told The Washington Post.

“They’re looking for someone who is going to defend them, someone who’s going to bring jobs back, someone who’s going to defend their constitutional rights, and someone who’s going to make America strong again," he continued.

"They are not concerned that at times, Donald Trump acts like a frat boy. Sometimes he does, but that’s OK. They know he’s not an angel. They know that he can save the country, though.”

Stewart, who is also a contender for the 2017 Virginia governor seat, went on to compare Trump's comment to the behavior of former President Bill ClintonWilliam (Bill) Jefferson ClintonBusiness coalition aims to provide jobs to Afghan refugees Biden nominates ex-State Department official as Export-Import Bank leader Obamas, Bushes and Clintons joining new effort to help Afghan refugees MORE.

“When Bill Clinton did all those horrible things, people still supported him afterward because they know that that is of secondary importance. They want someone who’s going to bring jobs back,” he said.  
“They’re not concerned about whether he acted like a frat boy, as a lot of guys do,” he added.
