Milo Yiannopoulos, infamous Breitbart.com writer and ringmaster of over 44 interns, was met by student protesters during a speech at my (soon-to-be) alma mater American University on April 21.

To give you an idea of what the mood was like, he started off by promising $20 to the Trump campaign for every interruption. Five minutes off the bat and it was already feeling like a Trump rally complete with protesters being forcibly removed by campus police. I counted at least a dozen "Make American Great Again" hats in that room.

Here's our full write-up and video package from the event at News2Share (also featuring some of my footage).
