“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 ClintonFeehery: Pivoting to infrastructure could help heal post-impeachment wounds Press: Ukraine's not the only outrage The 2 events that reshaped the Democratic primary race 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.
 
Stewart's remarks come in the wake of a new controversy after a leaked audio reported first by The Washington Post, reveled Trump's lewd conversation about his sex life and celebrity status.
