HRC is that bad': Jason Chaffetz changes his mind on Trump

But he said it's not an endorsement...

At the start of October, Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz made it clear � in no uncertain terms � he was done with Donald Trump, but now he's back on board with the Republican presidential nominee.

Just a few weeks ago, the highly influential Republican said he could no longer stand by Trump after the publication of 2005 audio of the billionaire businessman making explicit comments about women during a conversation with former "Access Hollywood" host Billy Bush. In the clip, Trump said he could "do anything" to women because he's a celebrity, including "grab them by the p***y."

"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," Chaffetz said at the time.

But with less than two weeks until Election Day, something has changed for the Utah lawmaker. Apparently, he's come to some realization about "how bad" Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton really is.

Naturally, the presidential flip-flop � now a common dance for Republicans wary of Trump � caught the attention of several social media users, who called Chaffetz out for his switch.
