Mark Millar Comes Out For Andrew Yang For President Of The United States

Mark Millar (#34 on the power list), has entertaining politics. He publically backed and promoted Scottish politician Alex Salmond and the Scottish National Party in 2011, appeared in their party political broadcasts, and was publically thanked by Salmond when the SNP won almost all Scottish seats in the General Election.

Salmond went on to appear with Millar at a number of comics and movie-related events including the Glasgow Film Festival and Millar was recommended by Salmond – and received – an MBE for his contributions to culture. But, since Salmond was arrested and now charged with sexual assault and rape, charges he denies, you won't see much mention made of their time together.

It probably didn't help that Millar dropped the SNP when it came to the Scottish Referendum on membership of the United Kingdom, and threw his support behind the No Vote. The most common reason he gave was that an independent Scotland would have rejoined the European Union, and he was fighting for the United Kingdom to leave Europe.

Because, yes, he is a Brexiter too, and threw his support behind Brexit too. It is worth pointing out that all three campaigns Mark Millar backed, no matter how unlikely, won.

And now he has thrown his support behind someone he is unable to vote for. Andrew Yang, entrepreneur, philanthropist, lawyer, and a Democrat candidate for the President Of The United States.

 

Could this be Millar's Four for Four?
