Independent Candidate Evan McMullin Calls Trump ‘Inhuman’ and Authoritarian

Conservative CIA veteran Evan McMullin entered the presidential race today as an independent candidate, and he made it really clear in an interview today that he can’t stand either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton.

He told ABC’s Tom Llamas that Clinton has, time after time, shown that she doesn’t think she needs to be held accountable, and so he has a problem with her and her big-government views.

But he had some really harsh words for Trump, calling out his “bigotry and misogyny” as well as saying he’s a fraud and a con man.

McMullin said, in response to Trump’s attacks on the Khan family and John McCain, “He is inhuman. Donald Trump does not care about anyone but himself.”

He didn’t say Trump would necessarily be worse than Clinton––calling them both “absolutely terrible”––but he called Trump a political opportunist and “an authoritarian” with an admiration for strongmen.
