In case you've forgotten who Gavin McInnes is, a reminder.
McInnes is one of the founders of Vice, a man once referred to as “the Godfather of hipsterdom.” He is also a proud misogynist who once said that “people would be happier if women would stop pretending to be men”, and that feminism “has made women less happy.” He further penned a defense of transphobia and has also been known to support Holocaust deniers.

Here is a man who enjoys killing elephants while making deals with Russians to bring down Hillary Clinton in his spare time. In fact, Trump, Jr. just faced a closed-door questioning from the House Intelligence Committee regarding his lovely little habit of DM-ing Wikileaks to skew the American election.

Welp, it’s what he retweeted. To wit, McInnes retweeted a DailyMail article proudly proclaiming that “demand for anal bleaching soars by 23% as women follow in the footsteps of celebrities” (because when have people in general never not followed in the footsteps of celebs)?
Upon this incisive and life changing piece of journalistic excellence, McInnes presented his opinion.
“You only get one chance to make a first impression,” he quipped.
McInnes, by the way, has been married for 12 years, has three children, and is reportedly a devout Catholic, so – family values?
Trump Jr. must have had all this in mind – the white supremacy and family values, we mean – because he liked the tweet.
Twitter account @TrumpsAlert, which tracks the Trump family and administration’s likes on Twitter, alerted the world to this interesting little fact, and…
