In other news, former Trump campaign manager and current advisor Corey Lewandowksi says Trump’s unhinged anti-immigration speech was a pitch for white men. No shit?

Meanwhile, Trump campaign CEO and former Breitbart chief apparently once worked for a company that operated Chinese gold farms for World of Warcraft. Mother Jones doesn’t mention it, but the working conditions in these places is equivalent to a sweat shop. Some of the “farmers” are even prisoners.

Finally, Buzzfeed did some digging into Breitbart’s landlord and found some interesting things.

Over the years in Egypt, El-Gindy has tried to institute the traditional jalabiya as national dress; was among a delegation visiting Gaza and meeting with Ismail Haniyeh, head of Hamas’ political wing; and attempted to trigger a Ministry of Culture investigation into a book about the sexual life of the prophet Muhammad. Last year, El-Gindy opposed a natural gas deal with Israel, saying he was against “normalization” with Israel. El-Gindy, a member of parliament, has gone through several political iterations.

And for Breitbart, the relationship appears to be more than just a simple landlord-renter agreement; the site has repeatedly written about El-Gindy without disclosing the relationship, often referring to him as a “senior Egyptian statesman.” One former Breitbart staffer told BuzzFeed News that El-Gindy does stay in the house sometimes.

Who knew the literal “friends of Hamas” would turn out to be Breitbart’s own landlord? That’s very awkward.

If it were anyone else, Breitbart would scream “Sharia!”

    I’ve gotten to the point where I simply expect comical hypocrisy from unhinged Right Wing loony bins like Breitbart. I’d be more surprised if it wasn’t there.

      It seems to be the norm doesn’t it? They often seem to be the opposite of what they so passionately fight against…like the neighbor in American Beauty.
