‘Pharma Bro’ Martin Shkreli endorses Trump — even after he called him ‘a spoiled brat’

Published

Controversial former pharmaceutical executive, and man with the most slappable in America, according to Seth Meyers, Martin Shkreli endorsed Republican presumptive nominee Donald Trump Thursday night via Twitter.

“I haven’t been called by the Trump camp. I support him vs. Hillary,” Shkreli tweeted Thursday night. “He should find a VP candidate who is seasoned in politics, an ugly game.”

Shkreli is most known for buying up life-saving HIV/AIDS drugs and jacking up the price so much it made it unaffordable to many of those who needed it. He’s since earned backlash for everything he’s done publicly from his $2 million purchase of a Wu-Tang Clan album to blaming his firing for his PR problems.

Despite their business practices being so similar, Trump likely won’t appreciate Shkreli’s endorsement.

“He looks like a spoiled brat to me,” Trump said last September. “You want to know the truth? He looks like a spoiled brat. That guy is nothing. He’s zero. He’s nothing. He ought to be ashamed of himself.”

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.
