Evan McMullin exposes Trump’s ‘autocratic’ reasons for spreading lies about his popular vote loss

As the media still reels from Donald Trump‘s false claim that his loss of the popular vote was due to “millions” of illegal voters, a narrative is emerging that paints a more calculated picture of the president-elect’s penchant for blurting out easily-debunked claims.

According to Evan McMullin, who ran as an Independent in the 2016 presidential election, Trump’s latest Twitter rant — whether conscious or unconscious — is an authoritarian tactic which aims to inflate the image of his legitimacy while casting the groundswell of public opposition as illegitimate.

McMullin fleshed out his thoughts in an eye-opening tweetstorm from yesterday.
