Influential news aggregator Matt Drudge is the embodiment of evil itself, according to the head of a top liberal think tank.

Center for America Progress president Neera Tanden, a close ally of failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, leveled the accusation while appearing on a National Review podcast, The Jamie Weinstein Show.

“Evil incarnate,” Tanden said when asked her opinion of Drudge, who runs the eponymous Drudge Report.

Drudge was the first to report in 1998 on former President Bill Clinton’s affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky.

Tanden also described former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon as “smart but evil.” (RELATED: Steve Bannon Blamed, Mocked After Roy Moore Loss)

Tanden’s organization has had its own sexual misconduct issues, BuzzFeed reported in April. Tanden later shocked Center for America Progress employees when she outed a sexual harassment victim in an all-staff meeting, according to another BuzzFeed report.

Tanden, who advised Hillary Clinton during her failed 2016 presidential campaign, was slated to be secretary of Health and Human Services if Clinton had won the election.
