Right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos was greeted by dozens of counter-protesters Sunday as he arrived on the UC Berkeley campus for what turned out to be a very brief speech.

Wearing a denim jacket over a sweatshirt resembling an American flag, Yiannopoulos and his entourage showed up shortly after noon at Sproul Plaza on campus and was jeered by a large group of counter-demonstrators. The crowd included a smaller contingent of Trump supporters.
