“Fuller House” actress Candace Cameron Bure isn’t sure where the 2016 presidential election is headed, but she’s certain about one thing: “The way this election is coming down between both candidates is embarrassing for our country.”
Bure, who also co-host’s “The View,” told Fox News in a recent interview that some people can’t help but laugh at the current state of the presidential race, but she sees the situation as quite unfortunate.
“It’s a shame, because we have such an incredible country,” Bure said. “It’s just hard to watch.”
But despite all of the political chaos that’s been raging, the actress made it clear that she places her faith in God and not in any particular candidate for public office.
“I am an American and I hold conservative values, and I think at the end of the day I realize I put my faith in Jesus Christ, not in any one person,” Bure said. “And whoever becomes our candidate, our nominee and eventually our president, I will pray for them and support that they make the best decisions for our country that they can.”
While the actress and TV host said some might not be content with the current presidential options, she believes “it’s our duty to still go to the polls.”

The actress also discussed furor over a hot mic recording from 2005 of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump making lewd comments about women, saying it was “disheartening” to hear. Trump has apologized amid anger over the remarks, likening his comments to “locker room” banter — a point Bure pointedly addressed during her interview.
“My husband is a professional athlete, and I’ve been in locker rooms before,” she told Fox News. “I can’t say the talk was exactly like that but … I think anyone who says they’ve never heard inappropriate talk would be lying to themselves.”
Bure has no qualms about sharing her Christian and conservative worldview, as she regularly comments on current events in her co-host role on “The View.”
