Martin Shkreli may have jumped to Trump’s defense about his recent lewd comments, but he wasn’t always a fan! Martin formerly slammed Trump in a scathing interview. Get the scoop!
Ouch! Martin Shkreli, 33, came down hard on Donald Trump, 70, in an interview with Vanity Fair‘s “The Hive.” “[Trump] inherited wealth! F**k him. And I thought we could be friends,” Martin scowled. The pharmaceutical executive was responding to comments Trump made against Martin amid his drastic “price gouging” controversy, in which the Republican said he “looks like a spoiled brat.” Martin quickly blasted Trump, mentioning that his parents were “immigrants and janitors.”
We have to admit, it’s pretty surprising Martin threw out those kind of words towards the presidential candidate, especially since he recently defended Trump on Twitter. Following the shocking audio of Trump bragging about inappropriately groping and kissing women he doesn’t know, Martin took to Twitter to protect him from furious voters. “I’m a guy and most of us talk and think like Trump does to each other,” Martin tweeted on Oct. 8. “I believe Trump started by talking about kissing. Quite romantic…” OMG! Martin went on to explain why Trump’s comments were not advocating for sexual assault. That is so terrible!
If someone put a gun to my head and made me vote, I would vote Trump over Hillary. This year I am abstaining in protest of crap candidates.

Plus, I'm a guy and most of us talk and think like Trump does to each other. You're a fuck boy megacuck. Go back to your PCR machine. https://t.co/w13EvvnkGW

Despite the former remarks, Martin made it clear that he’ll still be siding with the Republican candidate come election time. Only one day earlier on Oct. 7, Martin tweeted out Hillary Clinton’s, 69, personal email, along with other personal documents of hers. Not cool! And although Martin bashed Trump, he tweeted in May 2016, that if some one put a gun to his head, he “would vote Trump over Hillary.” He soon noted that his tweet was not an endorsement, but it sure sounded like one if you ask us!
HollywoodLifers, what did you think of Martin’s comments about Donald?
