The Washington Post's conservative columnist Jennifer Rubin said Sunday that Donald Trump is "unfit" to be president – and suggested a third-party candidacy is "much more possible than many believe."

In an appearance on CBS News' "Face the Nation," the "Right Turn" blogger declared the problem with the presumptive GOP presidential nominee is "not ideological."

"It is fundamentally an issue of character," she said, citing the brash billionaire's remarks including those on women and illegal immigrants.

"Just this week he was lying again," she added, saying it was untrue that Trump discussed a vice presidency slot with Sen. Marco Rubio, or that House Speaker Paul Ryan called him last month after Trump's primary win in New York.

"It's those fundamental character issues that many some Republicans cannot and will never get past," she said. "He's unfit for the office… He believes we should sprinkle nuclear weapons around Europe and the Far East. He believes we don't have to stand by the sovereign debt of the United States. He is unfit."

Rubin asserted Republican voters have a choice and Trump's "arrogant attitude 'you have to be with me because I won the states'" is a false premise.

Rubin said the possibility of an independent candidate running against both Trump and Hillary Clinton, as some conservatives are pushing for, is "much more possible than many believe. "

Rubin also said its a "false hope" that Republicans can win the White House with Trump's support among white working class voters alone.

"He cannot win with this formula" unless he can appeal to women, married women and Hispanics, she declared. "The demographics are over," she added.
