Regular viewers of Byline know Gavin McInnes. He’s zany, he is outlandish and this video is both.
He’s caused some controversy with this video, I’m not sure why. Anyone that watches closely will see that he cradles the baby’s neck for safety, that he is playing with the child and holds the baby in such a way as to make sure he is never hurt.

In more than 13 years I’ve never dropped a kid. Thrown them but never dropped.
Like Gavin though, I’ve been hurt.
