A surprising source has offered implicit support for a Hillary Clinton presidency, CNN reports. In a Facebook post over the weekend, Glenn Beck called on Republicans to vote against Donald Trump, an "immoral man who is absent decency or dignity," and urged the GOP to get Trump to step down to show "that the Republican party still stands for something." While voting for Trump is "validating his immorality, lewdness, and depravity," voting against him is the "moral, ethical choice." Beck says he's OK if that means a Clinton presidency, arguing that she can be fought against as president in a more moral way, through politics, protests, and more. Beck campaigned for Ted Cruz during the primary. (More Glenn Beck stories.)
