In what is hopefully a sweet, schadenfreude-laden harbinger of political events to come, Milo Yiannopoulos just resigned from his job as an editor at ”alt-right” torchbearer Breitbart before they could fire his ass. In a statement that ran in Variety, this millennial Nixon says, “I would be wrong to allow my poor choice of words to detract from my colleagues important reporting, so today I am resigning from Breitbart, effective immediately.”

The decision comes on the heels of publisher Simon & Schuster dropping Yiannopoulos’ upcoming book Dangerous from its roster, and the Conservative Political Action Conference disinviting him as a keynote speaker after a damning video of him appearing to condone pedophilia was released by a conservative site over the weekend. That’s all we know for now, but Yiannopoulos should be fine: After all, he’s still got that $100,000 he raised to give college scholarships to white men (yes, really), then deposited in his own bank account.
