Let’s just say Utah GOP Chairman James Evans has had better weeks.
First, he had to reiterate his support for Donald Trump following the release of a lurid videotape where the GOP nominee made comments about groping women.
Next up was news that the Utah GOP has bill collectors chasing them for some unpaid debts.
A shocking poll showed Trump was tied with Hillary Clinton in Utah at just 26%.
Then, on Thursday morning, Evans was booted from CNN after bringing up a widely discredited story about former President Bill Clinton having fathered an illegitimate love child with a prostitute.
CNN’s Carol Costello wasn’t having it after Evans injected Danney Williams into the conversation, saying Trump’s sexual accusers were being held to a different standard than those who bring allegations against the Clintons.
“That’s just rubbish. You have no proof of that,” scoffed Costello before ending the interview.
Evans was referring to a story that has been circulating around right-wing websites about how Williams claimed to be Clinton’s son via a sex worker. Williams has presented no evidence to back up his claim, and a DNA test previously determined Williams could not be Clinton’s son.
