‘Pharma Bro’ Martin Shkreli throws bizarre online party celebrating ‘life trimester’

Published

on

Embattled pharmaceutical executive Martin Shkreli celebrated what he called his 33rd birthday on Thursday with his apparent online friends, Queerty reported.

Shkreli, who became known as “Pharma Bro” for his price-gouging involving the drug Daraprim last September, marked the occasion via a webcast on the website Blab.

“Come have cake and stuff,” he wrote on Twitter as he posted a link to the livestream.

He also posted a picture of what he called a cake brought to him by friends, with his face baked on as part of a depiction of a $100 bill:

“Thanks for all the birthday love,” he wrote later. “33 today, feels like a life trimester is complete.”

However, that statement runs counter to a Vanity Fair profile in which he claimed that the arrogant persona seen online and in a congressional hearing did not reflect his authentic personality, calling it “an extremely weird form of sarcasm.”

“Anyone who knows me knows I am not that guy,” Shkreli is quoted as saying. Vanity Fair reported as part of the same story that Shkreli was born on April 1, 1983.

Conservative Washington Post columnist Max Boot unleashed on President Donald Trump's latest scandal he's calling Ukraine-gate. But when it comes to Republicans, he called them outright complicit.

In his Sunday column, Boot noted that a mob boss doesn't have to overtly say “pay up, or we will destroy your store” to be guilty of extortion. In Trump's case, he tends to say things in a way that it is understood what he wants people to do, according to former "fixer" Michael Cohen.

Hate for Trump sets new record of Americans who can’t stand a president

Published

on

A new poll shows a record number of Americans can't stand the president of the United States.

According to the most recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal public opinion poll, an astounding 69 percent of Americans don't like Trump personally.

During the early 2000s, President George W. Bush enjoyed the benefit of Americans finding him likable and wanting to "have a beer" with the sober leader. That measure of "likability" has been a kind of inspiration for political leaders searching for voters based not on issues but on personality.
