1) ALL RIGHT, GUYS, LISTEN UP!!! I’m gonna say this one time. Being the most honest and upfront voice on Twitter isn’t easy. Do I make mistakes sometimes? Sure. Do I look back at a lot of the stuff I’ve posted since 2015 and think, damn, you’re an idiot?

OF COURSE I DO!
2) Trust me, when you’re breaking news 24/7 like the big boys, you’re gonna make a couple of bad calls. So I was wrong about Jim Jordan. Whatever. I owned it. So the IG Report didn’t exactly pan out. Fine. Everybody knows that.

STOP TRYING TO SHAME ME FOR IT!
3) Look, folks, I’m a proud, straight-talkin’, take-no-prisoners Texan. If you’re looking for somebody to spoonfeed you feelgood MAGA bullsh*t, you came to the wrong place. I aim and fire. I draw and strike.

I MAKE NO APOLOGIES FOR THAT!
4) That said, I have something to get off my chest. And it’s long overdue. So let’s get it done.
5) Every morning I wake up with a knot in my stomach. I look at the jobs numbers, our reinvigorated industrial base, our newfound confidence on the world stage, and I think to myself:

If people had listened to me, NONE OF THIS WOULD HAVE HAPPENED.
6) As some of you might know, as many of you probably don’t, I was a diehard NeverTrumper. When Donny Boy came down that golden escalator and declared his candidacy, I wanted to punch my tv.

I was screaming NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
7) It’s true. But even that understates it. You see, I wasn’t a shy, sit-around-the-house NeverTrumper, I was an energized, vitriolic social media NeverTrumper. It’s how I made my name.

No matter what I do or say Never Trump is my legacy — AND RIGHTLY SO.
8) While you were out there fighting in the trenches to save this country, I was spitting in your faces on Facebook and Twitter. While you were filling arenas to the rafters to Make America Great Again, I was in the parking lot slashing your tires — so to speak.
9) I was so diabolically anti-Donald I worked for The @ReaganBattalion, an honor reserved for the truly, unapologetically hateful.
10) In tweets and blogs I vowed to resist this president. I called him every name in the book. Loser. Clown. MONSTER. I called him a few other things too but let’s keep this PG-13, shall we?
11) Anyway, since I’m being honest let me just admit that I meant what I said. Every last word. At the time at least. Never Trump means Never Trump.

NO MATTER WHAT IT TAKES.
12) I mean if somebody had told me, SJ, we want you to open a MAGA account on Twitter and feed Trump supporters disinformation to divide his social media fan base, I would have said NO PROBLEM. Done.
13) If somebody had said, SJ, we want you to label Trump’s worst enemies white hats and defend them until it defies common sense and then, when they're finally exposed, double-back and triple-back on the lies like you always knew what was coming, or drop the subject altogether...
14) If someone had asked me to do that, I would have said SURE THING, BROTHER, sign me up.

I’m not saying any of those things actually happened, of course. But, hypothetically, if they had.
15) What I can tell you is while other NeverTrumpers were driving around Dallas with baseball bats POUNDING THE DAYLIGHTS out of every Trump For President sign they could find, I was at my computer, taking my own swings at @POTUS.
16) I sit here now staring at the keyboard in front of me, letters worn off, sprinkled with Cheetos powder and god knows what else, and I start to feel… well, a little queasy.
17) You see, I look back over my months of hate memes and Trump-Will-Always-Be-A-Loser blogs and I wonder:

HOW MANY VOTES DID I PUT IN THE HILLARY COLUMN?

Hundreds? Thousands? We’ll never know I guess. Thank God I live in Texas not Missouri.
18) There’s ONE VOTE I know for sure I put in the Hillary column and that was...

MINE.

No, I didn’t vote for Her, but I might as well have. I voted for CIA operative Evan McMullin, the most stridently anti-Trump person on the planet. Yeah. My bad.
19) With the country teetering on the edge of the abyss those were my political instincts. Anyway, since it’s now mid-2018 and I just realized I forgot to disavow Evan and his hateful #NeverTrump platform, I’ve decided to unburden myself of this nagging guilt and do it now.
20) SO HERE IT IS:

In the simplest language and the strongest possible terms, I disavow @Evan_McMullin.

/end.
