One Greedy Psychopath Endorses Another

A member of the Future Felons of America, Martin "Pharma Bro" Shkreki, has endorsed Donald Trump.
Martin Shkreli, the 33-year-old former CEO of Turing Pharmaceuticals, said on Twitter Thursday that he would vote for the presumptive Republican nominee in his likely general election matchup. ... Shkreli, who is currently awaiting trial for securities fraud, said later that “all you people who don't like trump are jealous, stupid and poor! don't make me laugh!”
The funny thing is that, after somebody punked the little asswipe on Twitter, he then pulled a Very Donald Move: Threatened to sue.

I am so looking forward to reading the account of his eventual sentencing hearing.

I thought we didn't let felons vote?

Unfortunately, he's not a "felon" until he's tried and convicted (presumed innocent and all that).
Hopefully, his future roommate will appreciate him.

Alas, I fear that if Shkreli's lawyers somehow fail to get either the charge dismissed or a not guilty verdict, he'll get a slap-on-the-wrist sentence of six months, under house arrest. Plus two years of community service, which in his case might be weekend stints in some hospital pharmacy, ordering his own stuff.

To paraphrase the late Leona Helmsley, prison is for the little people.

Yours crankily,
The New York Crank

We still need to hire Bill Murray and the saner members of the Wu-Tang Clan to steal the album back.
