As Twitchy told you yesterday, Max Boot decided that the best way to respond to being rightfully called out at National Review for his dishonest hackery was not to own up to his dishonest hackery, but rather to double down on it:
I grew up reading @NRO. Its founder, William F. Buckley Jr., was a childhood hero. So it was a shock on Monday afternoon to see myself attacked in National Review as, essentially, a traitor to the white race. My @PostOpinions column: https://t.co/Nylc6u9cga

Evan McMullin, who represented himself as a true conservative alternative to Donald Trump, did what he could to amplify Boot’s ridiculousness today:
.@MaxBoot: "With its long-standing opposition to immigration…National Review has found common ground with the far right. Like many conservative media outlets, it has flirted with the “great replacement” theory espoused by the El Paso gunman." https://t.co/tmnJnPv8Oz

Lol. Getting the band back together?

It’s not surprising that Evan McMullin is firmly on Team Max Boot. But it is a little shocking that he thought he could get away with it:
The National Review office was literally the first stop of your 2016 “campaign.” I was there. https://t.co/USYkFUF8pS

If Boot’s baloney about National Review’s “long-standing opposition to immigration” were true — and it cannot be overemphasized that it’s not true — then why did McMullin feel comfortable hanging out at such a supposed haven for white nationalists?
Maybe because he knows that Boot’s completely full of crap, but he’s sold his soul to the Resistance and isn’t looking back.
In attempting to shame National Review, Evan McMullin shames himself.
No. This is flat-out wrong. https://t.co/tVNYtSEGWr

Evan McMullin is a deadbeat who doesn't pay his vendors. He also probably wears stupid fedoras. https://t.co/9eid6DyEZj

National Review, which published an anti-Trump issue and employs David French, is now Trumpist? Seek help. Your mother and I are both embarrassed we voted for you.

Writing in Alice Cooper instead of voting for you was my favorite part about 2016.

Cant stand Trump but ashamed that I actually voted for you

Upon learning that a write-in vote for @tedcruz would have been completely discarded, I cast a protest vote for you instead.
… I should have voted for Ted and let the state disenfranchise me. You are utterly unworthy of my support, but you have earned my contempt.

I've never regretted voting for anyone more.

I can’t believe I voted for this scumbag ?
