Governor Bentley slams Trump while referencing his own scandal


Alabama Governor Robert Bentley slammed Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump while talking to Madison County leaders on Wednesday.

“Honestly, we have two of the worst candidates that this country has ever had,” Bentley told the crowd.
The Governor admitted that he knows some are judging him based on some of his recent indiscretions, but said his comments are nowhere near as bad as Trump's.

The remarks came after someone in the audience asked Governor Bentley who he’ll vote for in the upcoming election.

Bentley said he’s going to write someone in, possibly Ohio Governor John Kasich, who he endorsed months ago.  

Bentley also told the crowd he'll support every other republican candidate other than Trump on the ticket when he does vote.

He also referenced his own scandal while talking about Trump’s recent comments and said his own actions have never reached Trump’s levels.

“When I did this and when I thought about I said 'they're going to mock and they're going to make fun of me' because honestly I said something a few years ago I shouldn't have said, and I admit that. But let me say: I don't have a pattern of being derogatory and degrading women, I don't have a pattern degrading those who are disabled, those who have cerebral palsy, those who are not of the same color that I am, those....I don't have that attitude and I don't think the leader of this country ought to have that attitude,” said Bentley.

Governor Bentley said he's not telling people how they should vote but is only revealing how he'll vote.

Alabama Representative Martha Roby also says she will not support Trump in his bid for the White House.
