"Real Time with Bill Maher" features Milo Yiannopoulos and a "conservative" panel

Tonight, “Real Time with Bill Maher” started out with a twelve-minute interview with provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos.  There had been a lot of publicity over the protest cancellation by Jeremy Scahill. 

Milo, looking very young, and pretending effeminacy, partied in his usual way and said he does hire gau people at Brietbart (joke).  They talked about Leslie Jones (who recently impersonated Donald Trump).  Breitbart just put up the full interview here

I had missed the first ten minutes (didn’t realize it was on tonight).  I caught the end of the interview, which then went into a panel discussion (“What Conservative Principles?”)  with Malcolm Nance (Counterterrorism Information Center), Larry Wilmore (comedy) and Jack Kingston, Representative from Georgia (Republican).  The panel felt that the Flynn-Russia mess and pre-election hack presented a grave national security and political crisis.

Larry Wilmore gave Milo a hard time over Milo's attitude toward transgender people (Vox story). 

The Maher interviewed Leah Remini about scientology.
The show offered 15 minutes extra of all panelists (except Leah), including Milo, in “Overtime” on Live YouTube.  Milo said, surprisingly, that transgender could be mental illness and that the public does need to be protected in the bathrooms.  But that was his only provocative statement.
