To The Surprise Of No One, Martin Shkreli Backs Donald Trump For President


Martin Shkreli, the so-called pharma-bro that incited worldwide disgust after buying a $13 dollar AIDS medication and jacking the price up to $750 per dose, has announced who he’s supporting for president and you probably won’t be too surprised who it is. The 33-year-old, who is currently awaiting trial for securities fraud, has chosen Donald Trump as his favorite for the 2016 presidential election.

However, you can count Donald Trump out as a fan of Shkreli. Back in September when the pharmaceutical executive bought the drug Daraprim and raised the price over 5000%, Trump said Shkreli looked “like a spoiled brat. And he’s a hedge fund guy — as you know, the only one who I’m raising taxes for. They’re going to be paying up. But I thought it was a disgusting thing what he did.”

That’s okay by Shkreli, whose favorite attribute of Trump is that he isn’t Hillary Clinton.

“I don’t love the guy, but at the end of the day he also hates a lot of the stuff I hate,” he said during a recent video chat. “Whatever it takes to beat Hillary Clinton because honestly the feeling inside her cold black heart when she loses a second time would be the worst feeling ever. So worth it!”
