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

Published

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.

Bill Barr quietly pulls off a shake-up in a federal prosecutor’s office — but why?

Published

on

Attorney General Bill Barr’s attempt last month to push U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman out of his position at the Southern District of New York blew up in his face. While Berman was ousted, Barr didn’t get the replacement he wanted, and House Democrats are now investigating.

But last Friday night, Barr successfully pulled off a similar maneuver in the Eastern District of New York. Richard Donoghue no longer leads that office, as he has taken the position of principal associate deputy attorney general at Main Justice. Seth DuCharme, who had been principal associate deputy attorney general and worked under Barr, will now serve as the acting U.S. attorney for EDNY.
