Founder of 'Twinks for Trump' Arrested During Speech
Lucian Wintrich, a gay conservative and the founder of 'Twinks for Trump', appeared to give a speech at the University of Connecticut when chaos ensued during his "It's OK to be White" speech. The speaking engagement was sponsored by the UConn College Republicans.
Twinks for Trump was a parody account that pretended to appeal to gay demographic and campaign for Donald Trump during the 2016 election, but Wintrich is, in fact, a White House Correspondent who works for a right-wing site Gateway Pundit. He's even highlighted his affinity for Trump with a perplexing art exhibit that obviously displays both his political views and his taste in men.
Over 300 people attended the speech where Wintrich was faced with shouts of "Go Home Nazi" "Fuck You" and "Black Lives Matter" according to The Daily Campus. Wintrich apparently took breaks during his speech to take sips from a glass of milk and insulted audience members by commenting on their appearance. The audience grew angry and the crowd rushed the lectern. Wintrich was removed from the room and arrested for breach of peace on the university campus after he attacked a woman in the crowd when she took his speech from the podium. He was later released on $1,000 bail.
Wintrich then took to social media to further taunt the masses.
