Milo Yiannopoulos to Participate in #Twinks4Trump Exhibition at Brooklyn Art Gallery
That a new art exhibit is opening in Brooklyn is not surprising. That Milo Yiannopoulos calls Donald Trump “daddy” is not surprising. When you mix those two facts together, though, you get one of the few things that could still be considered surprising during this election season: The #Twinks4Trump art pieces by Lucian Wintrich that were so popular at the Republican National Convention will be getting space in a Brooklyn gallery, Yiannopouslos will be participating, and the show is to be called #DaddyWillSaveUs.
Here is the announcement:

There is a lot to take in here.
Gavin McInnes, who co-founded Vice and is as controversial as Yiannopoulos in his own right, will also be among the participating artists. Both Yiannopoulos and McInnes were featured in the Trump-related art project known as “Right-Wing Playing Cards” earlier this year, too.
Wintrich’s work will be available for viewing on the 8th and will also feature Martin Shkreli and James O’Keefe as contributors.
Watch Wintrich giggle his way through a two-minute introduction to his exhibit below:
He mentioned he has “very big names” and “incredible names” lined up for the event, which was reminiscent of Trump’s own speaking pattern. The full effect Trump has had on Wintrich and his crew will be revealed in only five days.
