In a shocking post to Facebook, conservative author and radio host Glenn Beck said that not voting for Trump is a “moral, ethical choice” for Republicans. Beck stopped short of calling on Republicans to vote for Clinton, but did call on Trump to step down in the post dated October 8.

 

“It is not acceptable to ask a moral, dignified man to cast his vote to help elect an immoral man who is absent decency or dignity,” Beck wrote. “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 pointed out that, if Hillary becomes president, her agenda and her nominees can be blocked if the Republican Party retains control of the Senate and House of Representatives. In contrast, many of Donald Trump’s possible actions, such as torpedoing NAFTA and not honoring NATO defense commitments, could not be blocked by Congress. The Constitution gives the president control of the military and the president traditionally sets the tone on foreign policy.

 

“The alternative,” a Trump presidency, “does not offer a moral person the same opportunity,” Beck continues. “If one helps to elect an immoral man to the highest office, then one is merely validating his immorality, lewdness, and depravity.”

 

Glenn Beck is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Members of the Mormon Church have led the Republican revolt against Donald Trump. Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) and other members of the Utah Republican delegation were among the first to repudiate Trump after release of the lewd video on Friday.

 

Beck did not endorse Hillary Clinton in the Facebook post. He also did not say who he plans to vote for or if he plans to vote at all. It is possible that Beck will support Utah independent conservative Evan McMullin. McMullin was previously endorsed by fellow talk show host, Erick Erickson.

 

“Trump stepping down does not guarantee a Clinton win,” Beck said, “but it does guarantee that the Republican party still stands for something, still allows its members to maintain their [sic] own self-respect and that it still has a future.”
