Did CounterIt.ch Provide Tucker Carlson Inspiration About Pharma Bro?

Tucker Carlson interviews Pharma Bro (Martin Shkreli) on Twitter/X. They talk about our legal system, Hillary jokes, prison, and business.

Remember my post from a couple of months ago about Pharma Bro, Martin Shkreli?

Backstory

It appears some former followers of a business blog and some other media platforms where I’d post prescient thoughts found my little personal blog here, probably hoping, with bated breath, that I’ll post some actionable business-related ideas at some point.1Patience, grasshoppers. Patience.

“Why do you say that?” you ask.

Well, both Tucker and a Tyler at ZeroHedge just released an update about Pharma Bro – two months after my insightful post.

Of course, it’s probably all just a coincidence.

Pharma Bro Snippets

Here are some snippets from the Tucker Carlson and Martin Shkreli interview, compliments of ZeroHedge:2The article’s archive link is here.

Is there a systemic bias within our legal system against certain individuals?

“It doesn’t make a difference whether you’re guilty or not.”

While out on bail, and before getting sentenced, Martin also made the mistake of making Hillary Clinton the butt of a joke by suggesting she is a “lizard person” and then telling his followers on Facebook that he’d pay money for a strand of her hair [to test its DNA].

“And all of a sudden I found myself in front of a judge and they’re throwing me in prison. And yeah, I said something stupid – snide. It was a joke – you know as a comedian, not all your jokes land. And I – actually one of the reasons I have a social media following is, I think some people find my stuff funny.

And you know, I tried to poke fun at power and authority and you know all kinds of people who need to be taken down a peg…

…and, you know, this joke fell flat.

It was some silly joke about Hillary Clinton’s DNA, and it got taken the wrong way by actually a New Yorker reporter – kind of flagged it.”
