Mr. Spicer, do you agree that feminism gives you cancer? Do you agree that ex-gay torture works? The New York Daily News reports:
Breitbart goes to Washington. Milo Yiannopoulos, a writer for the far right Breitbart News website, claims he’s attending a White House press briefing on Friday.
“I’m a senior editor at America’s most influential news outlet. How the fuck do you think?” Yiannopoulos told the Daily News in a Thursday evening email when asked how he obtained credentials for the presidential briefing.
The British Breitbart writer, who is frequently accused of propagating racism, Islamophobia and sexism, was forced to cancel a Wednesday evening speech at the University of California at Berkeley after his presence sparked violent protests.
Yiannopoulos proudly represents the “alt-right,” an Internet-based ideology propagating views commonly associated with white supremacy and white ethno-nationalism. He was banned from Twitter after spearheading a racist harassment campaign against African American actress Leslie Jones last year, and frequently lashes out against what he considers a liberally biased media landscape.
