‘Twinks4Trump’ founder fired from his job after after appearing on white supremacist podcast

Alt-right troll Lucian Wintrich was fired from his job and stripped of his White House press credentials after appearing on podcast alongside a white supremacist, The Daily Beast reports.

A little backstory: In 2016, Wintrich launched “Twinks4Trump”, a photo project that featured pictures of skinny white gay men posing naked to show their support for the Republican billionaire who couldn’t care less about them.

In 2017, Wintrich was arrested after getting into a physical altercation with a student at the University of Connecticut.

The 29-year-old was giving a speech about why “it’s OK to be white” when he jumped off the stage to chase after a heckler.

After violently grabbing the young woman, he was booked into a local jail and later released on $1,000 bail.

After that, Wintrich landed a gig with the alt-right blog Gateway Pundit, where he was given an official White House press pass, which he took full advantage of.

Last February, he was photographed gleefully making a white supremacist hand gesture in the White House briefing room.

This week, however, he had that coveted press pass taken away from him.

Gateway Pundit announced Wintrich is no longer working for the site effectively immediately and it may or may not have to do with a recent appearance he made on a podcast alongside white supremacist Nicholas Fuentes.

During their chat, the guys discussed the “genetic difference between races” and claimed the U.S. was “specifically saying we want the sh*ttiest immigrants in the entire world to flood our country.”

The Daily Beast reports Wintrich was dumped by Gateway Pundit after appearing on the podcast, though the blog says his departure had already been in the works.

“I’d like to wish Lucian Wintrich the best of luck and blessings on his next endeavor after leaving Gateway Pundit several weeks ago,” Gateway Pundit chief Jim Hoft tweeted.

It remains to be seen where he’ll lands next, though we wouldn’t be surprised if he ends up peddling vitamins on satelite radio alongside archnemesis Milo Yiannopoulos.
