Conservative talk radio host Hugh Hewitt, shockingly announced Sunday that he will vote for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in the Virginia Democratic primary.

The shock comes, of course, because Hewitt supports President Donald Trump.

Hewitt explained on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that he is voting for Sanders because he believes the socialist Democrat is an “authentic socialist.”

“Because Virginia allows early voting and because I don’t know where NBC or Salem will have me on March 3, I’m voting this week. And because it’s Virginia, I get to vote in the Democratic primary,” Hewitt said.

“I’m voting for Bernie Sanders. And I think a lot of people will because he’s authentic,” he explained. “I want a clear choice between the authentic, traditional socialist and all the people who just pretend to be.”

Despite voting for Sanders in the Virginia primary, Hewitt confirmed that he will vote for Trump in the 2020 general election.

During the 2016 election, Hewitt was a vocal critic of Trump, arguing that the Republican National Committee should change its rules to prevent him from winning the nomination. He quickly reversed his position, however, and eventually supported the president.

The March 3 Democratic primary in Virginia allows registered voters to pick between competitors in either primary without switching their party registration. Sanders is currently polling in second nationally behind former Vice President Joe Biden.

    You sir are no conservative in any way shape or form if you are voting for a socialist “because he’s authentic”????

    That P O S is not A republican !

  • Boyd says:

    Could it be that he may be voting for someone Trump will easily beat in 2020? It may be a strategy that is in Trumps favor.
