Donald Trump to Share Stage With Milo Yiannopoulos Despite Video of Him Maybe Supporting Pedophilia
Not a good look
The annual CPAC (Conservative Political Action Committee) conference is being held this week in Baltimore and over this past weekend, in a move that even shocked some conservatives, it was announced that Breitbart editor and troll extraordinaire Milo Yiannopoulos would be speaking to attendees. And while that might be alarming, it’s not the most shocking news to come out of this story–yesterday a video surfaced that shows Milo appearing to support pedophilia.
It was also announced this morning that Trump is set to speak at the annual event Friday at 10 am.
In a Youtube video released on Twitter by an account called The Reagan Battalion, in a podcast interview Milo did with the show “Drunken Peasants,” the controversial troll that often sparks protests wherever he goes, said:
“In the homosexual world particularly, some of those relationships between younger boys and older men the sort of coming of age relationships relationships in which those older men have helped those young boys to discover who they are and give them security and safety and provide them with love and a reliable — and sort of a rock where they can’t speak to their parents.”

This is a must watch!

At that point one of the show’s hosts says what Milo was saying sounded a lot like “priest molestation.”
But then Yiannopoulos responds: “And do you know what? I’m grateful for Father Michael. I wouldn’t give nearly such good head if it wasn’t for him.”
Milo’s statements caused even conservatives, who previously liked Milo, to question the decision for CPAC to allow him to speak.

Ned Ryun, founder of the conservative group American Majority, said on Twitter that the ACU (American Conservative Union) board was not consulted in the decision to allow Milo to speak at CPAC and said of Milo’s statements “There’s nothing about this that’s amusing. This isn’t about free speech. This is about basic decency.”
Although, because this is 2017 and nothing can be published without someone claiming it’s FAKE, many Twitter users came to the defense of Milo to say that video is FAKE!
The funny thing, even Milo isn’t claiming that the video is fake. Milo took to Facebook to defend his statements saying that he doesn’t support pedophilia. Which, the fact that someone even has to taken to Facebook to say that they don’t support fiddling kids is mind-blowing.
In addition to Trump, top advisors Steve Bannon and Reince Priebus are also scheduled to join the stage with Milo. It’s almost as if organizers are setting the stage and begging for protests to happen that could potentially get out of hand.
