Asra Nomani is an immigrant, a Muslim and a life-long liberal. She is also, as she told CNN's Carol Costello Friday, a "silent secret Donald Trump voter."
Nomani, a former Wall Street Journal reporter and co-founder of the Muslim Reform Movement, first made her self-described "confession" in a Washington Post column on Thursday. Since it published, she told Costello, she has received a torrent of abuse on social media. It's a symptom, Nomani insisted, of an increasingly hostile "liberal honor brigade."
"You know, I felt like this entire election year, we have just silenced so many people," Nomani said.
