Conservative radio talk show host Glenn Beck said he never considered voting for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, but the idea of casting a vote for Democratic rival Hillary Clinton “has crossed my mind.”

“I will tell you, that it has crossed my mind,” Mr. Beck said in an interview at his Idaho ranch on Monday’s premiere of HBO’s “Vice News Tonight.”

“It has crossed my mind,” he said about voting for Mrs. Clinton. “I think Donald Trump is so unstable, so dangerous, that it has crossed my mind.”

“I can’t do it, because she’s just a horse of a different color. She’s just as bad,” he added. “They’re both bad.”

Mr. Beck told Vice News correspondent Michael Moynihan that he is endorsing Darrell Castle, the Constitution Party’s nominee, for president.

On Saturday, Mr. Beck took to Facebook to support Sen. Mike Lee in calling for Mr. Trump to drop out of the race after a 2005 video surfaced of the business mogul bragging about groping women.

“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,” Mr. Beck wrote. “If she is elected, the world does not end…. Once elected, Hillary can be fought.

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