WATCH: ‘The Daily Show’ crew refuses to be filmed in public, crew member intimidates and shoves host at Milo’s ‘Gays for Trump’ Party.
CLEVELAND, Ohio — Breitbart News’ Joel Pollak sent The Daily Show running for cover, armed only with his cell phone camera, outside a “Gays for Trump” party hosted by Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos near the Republican National Convention early Wednesday. A crew from The Daily Show — which plunged in the ratings after Trevor Noah took over as host— set up outside the event and approached people as they left the party, asking them for interviews. At 12:30 a.m., Pollak was leaving the party when The Daily Show approached. “I was on the phone anyway,” Pollak recalled, “so I ignored them, but then I saw them pulling someone aside, so I stopped to watch.” The Breitbart senior editor-at-large ended his call, and turned on his video camera. The Daily Show didn’t like that. Their attempt to stop Pollak wasn’t funny, and included physical intimidation, [assault] and a blatant disregard for the First Amendment.
