Conservative commentator Glenn Beck said that the election of Hillary Clinton is a "moral, ethical choice" for Republicans if it means keeping an "immoral man" out of the White House.

"If the consequence of standing against [Donald] Trump and for principles is indeed the election of Hillary Clinton, so be it," Beck wrote on Facebook.

Beck has long been an outspoken critic of Trump, and is no fan of Clinton either: "Her tactics are blatant and juvenile," he said. But "if she is elected, the world does not end."
