Verily, the mind doth boggle . . . the Washington Post has suggested fabulously, flamboyantly gay Milo Yiannopoulos as a possible candidate for White House Press Secretary.
If he really wants to shake things up, Trump could install Yiannopoulos — the self-described “most fabulous supervillain on the internet” — as his press secretary. Just imagine briefings with this guy (profanity warning):
There’s more at the link.
For those who know Milo’s previous work, even the thought (much less the reality) of him as WH Press Secretary is just too delicious for words. I can see the headline now . . . “I thought innuendo was an Italian suppository until I discovered Milo!”
But could he lie for his boss? Don't know of a press secretary who hasn't.
Judy, he's the guy who said we're living in a post-fact world and he loves it. Lying apparently doesn't mean anything mean anything to him.
Which is why I don't want him anywhere near Trump.
I dunno. The idea is pretty good.
But I'd really like to see Ann Coulter – she's been around longer. Or maybe Stefan Molyneux.
Bill Lind for Sec Def, or at least a top mil adviser.
Kratman for Sec Army.
Vox for Italian ambassador.
Kim Du Tuois for SA ambassador.
Burt Rutan for Energy.
Cull some RINO senators from states with solid R governors and appoint them to meaningless, powerless posts.
Outside the box, gentleman, outside the box!
I think it would be a bad idea, precisely because Milo is abrasive. Look, his snark makes for great youtube clips, but that sort of "drop the mike" bullshit attitude and complete dismissal of the opposing team is exactly how the left managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory this year. Just because the right is in power now does not mean that they should immediately proceed to doing the exact same things that the left was doing. The golden rule applies in politics as much as in social activities.
One problem with your theory: it implies that *Trump* is *not* abrasive. Right.
Milo is abrasive in the same way Trump is, and Milo is charming enough in person that even reporters who think he is pure evil have trouble not fawning over him. It's a little creepy, really. But all that aside, Milo as Press Secretary would be…glorious. Side note: isn't Milo British? Does the Press Secretary not need to be an American citizen?
Uncle Jimbo from Black Five for Press Secretary!
But yes, at least once or twice have Milo Y act as temp Press Secretary. It would be worth watching.
