Conservative pundit Glenn Beck said on Monday that he considered voting for Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonHarris favored as Biden edges closer to VP pick Ron Johnson subpoenas documents from FBI director as part of Russia origins probe Juan Williams: Older voters won't forgive Trump for COVID MORE but couldn’t bring himself to do it. 

“I will tell you that it has crossed my mind,” he said in an interview on HBO’s “Vice News Tonight.” 

“To vote for [Donald] Trump?” the interviewer asked. 

“To vote for Hillary,” Beck responded. “It has crossed my mind.

“I can’t do it, because she’s just a horse of a different color,” he added, saying that he had never considered voting for Trump, the Republican presidential nominee. 

Beck said that he would vote for Darrell Castle, the Constitution Party presidential nominee. 

Beck also wrote in a Facebook post on Saturday that standing against Trump and electing Clinton, the Democratic nominee, would be a “moral, ethical choice.” 

“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,” Beck wrote the day after video surfaced of Trump bragging in 2005 that his celebrity allowed him to get away with groping women. 

The post was in response to Sen. Mike LeeMichael (Mike) Shumway LeeOvernight Defense: Air Force general officially becomes first African American service chief | Senators introduce bill to block Trump armed drone sale measure | State Department's special envoy for Iran is departing the Trump administration Senators introduce bill to block Trump armed drone sale measure Trump signs major conservation bill into law MORE (R-Utah) calling on Trump to resign from the ticket. Beck defended Lee, saying the senator has reached the point “where the moral compromise his party is asking him to make is simply beyond what is acceptable.” 

“If she is elected, the world does not end,” Beck wrote. “Once elected, Hillary can be fought. Her tactics are blatant and juvenile, and battling her by means of political and procedural maneuvering or through the media, through public marches and online articles, all of that will be moral, worthy of man of principal.” 

“Her nominees can be blocked, her proposed laws voted down,” Beck continued. “The alternative does not offer a moral person the same opportunity. If one helps to elect an immoral man to the highest office, then one is merely validating his immorality, lewdness, and depravity.” 

Since the tape’s release, a number of Republicans have either revoked their endorsements of Trump, like Sen.
