During the latest episode of The Milo Yiannopoulos Show, Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos sat down to talk with fellow gay British writer, journalist, and commentator Douglas Murray, where the two discussed the aftermath of the Orlando terrorist attack last week.

“I wanted to get you on the show this because I’m sat here in a hotel room… sitting here in Orlando, in Florida, where a Muslim gunman has just executed 50 homosexuals in a nightclub, and injured another 50,” said Yiannopoulos after welcoming Murray to the show.

“Barack Obama took to the air immediately afterwards and spoke more about gun control than he did about radical Islam, which is to say he didn’t mention radical Islam at all,” he continued. “Why is it we’re hearing so little from the mainstream liberal media about the real reasons for these sorts of crimes. Why do they keep making excuses?”

“Well that’s a very good question,” replied Murray. “I mean there’s no way at this stage that Barack Obama in this administration can do a U-turn. I mean this could happen every day for the next few months and they still wouldn’t be able to admit the problem because it’s been a problem they’ve been avoiding throughout both terms of his presidency. I mean it’s policy not to ignore this.”

“In 2009 you’ll remember that Fort Hood massacre where 13 people were killed by major Nidal Hasan who gunned them down while shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ and who had been in touch with major Al Qaida figures,” Murray recalled. “Then the Obama administration of course famously concluded that was a mere case of workplace violence.”

“Now the thing is, this is not a one off. Every single time there’s been an Islamic terrorist attack… during the Obama administration this has been what they’ve been doing,” he explained. “The only thing they could do now is to say ‘we’re sorry, we got the entire thing wrong for the last seven years’ and I think they’re very unlikely to do that.”

“Isn’t it slightly sad that they’re more interested in saving face than telling people the truth?” added Yiannopoulos.

Yiannopoulos and Murray also discussed how the left is betraying homosexuals, London’s new Muslim mayor, Brexit, and Guardian contributor Owen Jones’ stormoff from the Sky News set last week. The episode was recorded on Tuesday of this week.
