“Evan is over 40 years old and is not married and doesn’t even have a girlfriend. I believe Evan is a closet homosexual.”

These words were spoken by William Daniel Johnson, a delegate to the Republican National Convention (appointed by Trump) through automated phone calls to thousands of Americans. Johnson has been part of white supremacy circles for several years, and he stated that Trump had nothing to do with the phone calls. However, Trump has retweeted posts from white supremacists before, and it is still questionable whether or not he was behind these phone calls.

McMullin replied tweeting:

McMullin denied the accusations of being a closeted homosexual, and said that being in the CIA for 11 years held him back from starting a family, but he hopes to soon.

Since then, William Daniel Johnson has apologized for the phone calls.
