Though some suggest the Mormon Mafia was responsible for his rise to power, Evan McMullin nevertheless has made an amazing showing so far in Utah, managing to best both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in one poll.

That momentum put him on Trump’s radar at last. On Saturday, the GOP nominee wrote off McMullin as “a puppet of a loser” whom no one’s heard of.

Word is the Mormon Mafia drove the caffeinated beverage racket almost clean out of the state, but residents are anything but low energy when it comes to the election.

For a puppet, it turns out McMullin can punch back pretty hard.

That tweet racked up more than 6,000 likes in under an hour, so someone, somewhere must know who he is.
