Get ready to bear witness to Milo Yiannopoulos’s return to the world of internet drama, alongside internet “journalists” Jesse Singal and Katie Herzog. Today, we delve into the shadowy and malicious role Yiannopoulos allegedly played in the legendary dinner between former president Trump, the rapper formerly known as Kanye, and the white nationalist zoomer influencer currently known as Nick Fuentes.

Also discussed: the online outcry over a Balenciaga photoshoot that spilled over into the mainstream media, spurred on by YouTuber-cum-Twitter-influencer Shoe0nHead (June Lapine) and the bipartisan outcry that ensued… and why it’s all quite silly.

Et tu, Milo?
