Martin Shkreli

Martin Shkreli, the former hedge fund manager known as “Pharma bro,” has been suspended by Twitter for stalking and harassing a Teen Vogue writer and editor, New York Magazine is reporting.

Shkreli gained national notoriety when he purchased the rights to a life-saving medication in 2015 and jacked up the price from $13.50 to $750 per pill. Since that time he has been indicted on federal security fraud charges and has become somewhat of a Twitter and social media celebrity by trolling random people and acting out to get attention.

According to NYM, the former hedge-funder direct-messaged writer and editor Lauren Duca after seeing her battle with Fox News host Tucker Carlson. Shkreli asked Duca to accompany him to president-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration, with Duca publicly tweeting back at him: “I would rather eat my own organs.”

In response Shkreli has continued to tweet at Duca after changing his online bio to read: “also i have a small crush on @laurenduca (hope she doesn’t find out).”

The final straw for Duca came when the former pharma exec tweeted a photo-collage of Duca, and changed his profile picture to one of Duca with her husband — but  with his own head photoshopped in.

Duca responded by tweeting the images to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, writing “How is this allowed,” and on Sunday afternoon Shkreli’s account had been shut down.

Speaking with Buzzfeed News, Duca said, “He’s an entitled creep and absolutely deserves to have his account suspended — perhaps indefinitely.”

Arizona Republican likens Trump’s loss to Japan getting nuked while losing WW II — but as a good thing

Published

President Donald Trump on Monday allowed President-elect Joe Biden's transition to proceed -- while vowing he would never concede.

Despite Trump losing the election, some Trump supporters are refusing to accept the outcome.

One Arizona Republican in Congress, Paul Gosar, drew upon the historical knowledge him learned on his way to becoming a dentist in a bizarre analogy he posted on Twitter.

Gosar suggested the Trump movement would be like an Imperial Japanese soldier in World War II who refused to surrender until 1974.

Neal Katyal predicts law schools will teach a ‘Worst Mistakes in Court’ class on Trump’s ‘pathetic’ 20-day fiasco

Published

on

Prominent lawyer Neal Katyal is best known for having tried over 40 cases before the United States Supreme Court and serving as acting Solicitor General during the Obama administration.

But he also has spent more than two decades as a law professor at Georgetown.

He drew upon all of that experience for a Monday evening appearance on MSNBC's "The Last Word" with Lawrence O'Donnell.

"Someday a law school class is going to be called 'The Worst Mistakes in Court' -- and it will be just about these 20 days," Katyal predicted. "Because this legal strategy is so pathetic it makes Trump's coronavirus strategy look competent by contrast."

Trump vows he ‘will never concede’ — in 11 pm conspiracy-filled rant

Published

on

Donald Trump lost the 2020 presidential to President-elect Joe Biden, but is still refusing to concede.

White House aides reportedly convinced him to allow Biden to begin his transition by telling him he did not need to use the word "concede."

But that word appeared to be on his mind late Monday night.

"What does GSA being allowed to preliminarily work with the Dems have to do with continuing to pursue our various cases on what will go down as the most corrupt election in American political history?" Trump asked while continuing to lie about the election being corrupt.
