Marjorie Taylor Greene Hires Controversial New Intern
Former Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos announced that he’s now an intern for Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA).
“I’ve finally been persuaded out of retirement. But my skills are a bit rusty, so the best role I could land was an unpaid internship with a friend,” Yiannopoulos wrote on Telegram alongside a photo of his official intern congressional badge. “Pray for me!”
Yiannopoulos, a right-wing provocateur, is no stranger to controversy. According to The Hill, he was disinvited from the Conservative Political Action Conference in 2017 after a video resurfaced in which Yiannopoulos appeared to defend pedophilia.
The 37-year-old was banned from Twitter in 2016 and from Facebook in 2019. Australia also banned Yiannopoulos in 2019, following comments about a mass shooting in Christchurch, New Zealand.
Last year, Yiannopoulos declared himself “ex-gay” and “sodomy free.”
In a statement to The Daily Beast, Greene confirmed that Yiannopoulos is interning in her office.
“So I have an intern that was raped by a priest as a young teen, was gay, has offended everyone at some point, turned his life back to Jesus and Church, and changed his life,” Greene told the outlet. “Great story!”
