YouTuber Tim Pool praises neo-Nazi ally Milo Yiannopoulos and rapper Ye

Pool described Yiannopoulos as a “genius” and Ye as “smart” the day after they walked out of his studio

Right-wing YouTuber Tim Pool hosted neo-Nazi ally Milo Yiannopoulos, rapper Ye (formerly Kanye West), and white nationalist Nick Fuentes on the November 28 edition of his Timcast IRL podcast. The three-man crew walked out of the filming studio following slight pushback from Pool on Ye’s antisemitic comments. 

One day later, Pool is back praising his former guests in a follow-up video discussing the previous night’s stream.

Appearing on his Timcast YouTube channel, Pool suggested that Ye’s walkoff was “staged” and described Yiannopoulos as “a very, very smart guy” and “a genius.”

While on yesterday’s show, Ye railed against Jewish people and Yiannopoulos backed up his antisemitism, blaming Jews for “cancel culture," echoing hateful talking points he's been pushing during last few weeks.

As of this writing, the video remains monetized on YouTube.

Yiannopoulos is an alt-right troll and former Breitbart senior editor who helped launder white nationalist and neo-Nazi propaganda into publication. Fuentes is a fervent Holocaust denier and white nationalist. These extremists are reportedly working on Ye’s potential 2024 presidential campaign.

According to the far-right website Breitbart, former Trump aide Karen Giorno is also working on Ye's potential campaign. Giorno was reportedly “persuaded” by Yiannopoulos to “give Ye a ride to Mar-a-Lago.”

Correction (11/29/22): This article has been updated to reflect that Karen Giorno, not Timcast Editor-in-Chief Cassandra MacDonald, is allegedly working for Ye's 2024 campaign, based on a report from Breitbart.
