Anti-Trump “conservative” and failed presidential candidate Evan McMullin said that the views of many Americans are “extremely dangerous” on MSNBC Friday.


“I agree that it’s patently clear that the president is under the influence, control of Vladimir Putin. I think it’s been clear for a long time,” McMullin said.

“I think more people are being woken up to that. But the reality is, the numbers are not moving in the right direction. The reality is, again I’ll say, only 55% of Americans oppose the way Trump is handling his relationship with Russia.”  (RELATED: MSNBC Commentator: ‘People Need To Start Taking To The Streets.

“So there are a lot of people who actually aren’t following this very closely and they generally support what Trump is doing. That is extremely dangerous. That is something we have to think about, because ultimately this will come down to a political question, a political process in Congress to hold the president accountable. The politics really matter.”
