From ency.pub

Cassandra Fairbanks (11 March 1985),[1] also known as Cass,[2] is a pro-Donald Trump social media star, activist and journalist of partial Puerto Rican heritage[3] who went from left to right.[4][5] When she was three years of age, Cassandra decided she wasn't going to "eat anything that had a mommy or a face". She does cook meat, but refuses to eat it even now that she is a rightist.[5] She says: "I joined Twitter to follow Wikileaks. I became completely obsessed with WikiLeaks, I mean, I thought that they were heroes and I wanted the war to end."[6] Cassandra was horror-stricken when Kelly Thomas, a homeless, "schizophrenic" man, was killed by police and started writing about it on social media. It was frustrating and upsetting to her that the media didn't give the case more coverage and she hated George Bush, Barack Obama and the government.[7] Eventually a website offered her money to write for them, an offer she eventually accepted.[8] After this, she "got offered a job with Sputnik and multiple other outlets and moved to DC".[9] Being a non-interventionist as she is, she initially supported Bernie Sanders in the 2017 US presidential election, but didn't like the fact that many on the left were focusing on gun control rather than on what she considers to be the real issues after the Orlando mass shooting.[10][11] She "became friends with Brandon Darby", a man who "foiled a plot to throw Molotov cocktails at the RNC" in Minnesota in 2008.[12] Brandon's work as an informant led to the conviction of David McKay and Bradley Crowder.[13] He is now a writer for "Breitbart".[12][14] Cassandra has a daughter.[15] She is a friend of Lauren Southern's.[1] On 31 May 2017, Cassandra filed a lawsuit against Emma Roller of fusion.net for $100,000. In mid-2017, Cassandra started working for bigleaguepolitics.com.[16]
