Displaying his familiar disregard for public sensibilities, Donald Trump has defiantly tweeted today that he has chosen former Brietbart Senior Editor and Alt-Right provocateur, Milo Yiannopoulos, to head up a new department under Health and Human Services focused on national oversight of Child Protective Services.
This comes as welcome news for Yiannopoulos who has been fired from Brietbart and had his book deal with Simon & Schuster cancelled following revelations of an interview he gave in which he appeared to support pedophilia. Added to that, word of an impending $100 million dollar lawsuit surfaced today being filed against Yiannopoulos by right wing commentator, scarecrow model and author, Ann Coulter, for “stealing my act”.
Responding to nearly uniform condemnation in the media (Fox News, Brietbart and Pravda all complimented Trump on his choice of Yiannopoulos and his intoxicating body musk), Trump responded with another tweet:
While Yiannopoulos has many detractors, he has gained new allies. NAMBLA (North American Man-Boy Love Association) has started up a grass roots organization to help defend Yiannopoulos against negative portrayals in the media and being denied the right to speak in public forums. Their new Yiannopoulos-focused entity, Protect Every Republican Voice (PERV) was exposed suddenly in a public place by NAMBLA, in a hastily called press conference in a local elementary school bathroom. They vowed to defend Yiannopoulos‘ views as successfully as they have their own.
Yiannopoulos is banned from Twitter for life due to his many racist, sexist and abusive tweets but he did release a public statement thanking Trump for appointing him to run the national CPS department.
“Thank you Donald Trump, as we discussed, you and I both like to be able to feel whatever we want,” Yiannopoulos stated. “And I just love the idea of being in such a satisfying position with kids.”
Trump says he will continue to build on choosing “the best people” for positions in his administration, now preparing a presidential pardon for Charles Manson to fill a top position at Homeland Security.
