Wired magazine made its first-ever presidential endorsement Thursday, backing Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. 

{mosads}In an editorial posted to its website, Wired praised Clinton for her “mastery of detail” while slamming Republican nominee Donald Trump for his “utter indifference to the truth and to reality itself.”

“She comes to every policy conversation steeped in its history and implications, and with opinions from a diverse set of viewpoints. She is a technician, and we like technicians.”

While the magazine questions her “inclination toward military solutions,” it wrote, “her mastery of issues and detail is unlike that of any politician.” 

In particular, it praised her stance on climate change.

“She intends to uphold the Paris Agreement on climate change and reduce carbon emissions by up to 30 percent in 2025,” the editorial read.

“She hopes to produce enough renewable energy to power every American home by the end of her first term.”

Wired said Trump acts not like someone who wants to lead but someone who demands to be followed. 

“Here’s the thing about Donald Trump: In his 14 months as a political candidate, he has demonstrated an utter indifference to the truth and to reality itself. He appears to seek only his own validation from the most revanchist, xenophobic crowds in America. He is trolling, hard.”
