Chaffetz relents, gives one reason why he’s now voting for Trump – but don’t call it an endorsement

Utah Republican Representative Jason Chaffetz withdrew his endorsement of Donald Trump when the Republican nominee’s open-mic 2005 comments about women came to light, saying, “I’m out. I can no longer in good conscience endorse this person for president. It is some of the most abhorrent and offensive comments that you can possibly imagine.”

But now the chairman of the powerful House Oversight Committee, an individual who promises to be a thorn in Hillary Clinton’s side for the next several years whether she wins or loses this election, plans to vote for Trump after all.

Because Hillary is indeed “that bad.”

Oh, but the anti-Trump brigade didn’t like it one bit, and were quick to express their displeasure via Twitter:

But Chaffettz did get plenty of support as well!
