It started with a tweet about Donald Trump

Martin Shkreli aka the “Pharma Bro” became one of the most hated men in America after his former company, Turing Pharmaceuticals, raised the price of a life-saving AIDS drug from $13.50 a pill to $750. In the aftermath of the drug-gouging controversy, the former CEO has done little to improve his image. He’s been indicted on charges of securities fraud, pissed off the Wu-Tang Clan, and been a vocal supporter of Donald Trump.
Last night on Twitter, comedian Patton Oswalt was tweeting out #TrumpCantSwim in an attempt to promote a baseless rumor the same way Trump has spread lies about Hillary Clinton’s health. Soon, Shkreli came to Trump’s aid by trolling one of one of the quickest wits on the planet. As one would expect, things didn’t go too well for the former hedge fund manager.
