Gavin McInnes, a CRTV host and leader of the bizarre far-right Proud Boys fraternity, responded to today’s nasty public spat between President Trump and his former chief strategist Steve Bannon by attempting to discredit the journalist whose new book set off the feud, which he did by declaring that the journalist has a “gay face” so he must be a “closeted gay” and a sociopath.
In a video broadcast today on the Facebook page for his personal brand and CRTV show “Get Off My Lawn,” McInnes attempted to explain why he doubted the validity of reporting that Bannon had criticized a meeting between Donald Trump Jr., then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort and a Russian lawyer claiming to possess documents that would damage Hillary Clinton “treasonous” and “unpatriotic.”
“Why are we assuming that Michael Wolff is good at his job? Have you ever seen Michael Wolff? Now, this isn’t a fact, this is just my theory, but he has a gay face. And there’s nothing wrong with being gay, obviously. Chadwick Moore is a wonderful gay, so is Milo Yiannopoulous, but he appears to be a closeted gay and my experience with them is that they tend to be sociopaths,” McInnes said. “They have a lot of bottled up sexual rage and they want revenge on the world. I don’t trust these stories.”
Later in the video, pulling up a tweet from white nationalist sympathizer Nick Fuentes to make his case against Wolff, McInnes again brought up his theory that Wolff is gay.
“Does that face look a little gay to you?” McInnes asked while pointing to a picture of Wolff. “I mean, it’s the lips. That kind of a pocket square, I wear it sometimes. I have slept with hundreds of women. So you have to either be a pimp, or a pussy. Seriously, though. Look at his demeanor. Am I crazy? Does that look like a closeted gay man to you? Only black guys and me can get away with that kind of color scheme.”
At the end of his livestream, McInnes brought his theory about Wolff full circle, adding a disclaimer that his claim should just be considered “Gavin pulling stuff out of his ass.”
“My gut kind of vibe is that this has to do with repressed homosexuality,” McInnes said again, before directing viewers to watch Wolff’s mannerisms during a news interview.
