A formerly-reputable member of the mainstream press is very publicly losing his cool as Republicans keep winning under President Donald J. Trump’s leadership.
“I piss down the throat of you Nazi’s,” said Dan O’Sullivan on Twitter.
O’Sullivan made his vulgar remarks after Seth Mandel, a very moderate Republican, pointed out that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are making headway on prison and criminal justice reform by working with the Trump administration. When a Twitter user pointed out that Seth Mandel is not exactly a Trump hardliner, O’Sullivan snapped.
O’Sullivan bills himself as a former writer at Rolling Stone, VICE, Gawker, Deadspin, Salon, Jacobin and Daily Beast.
It appears that O’Sullivan gave up writing shortly after Trump’s 2016 electoral college landslide victory over Hillary R. Clinton. His last published piece – at least in the publications listed in his Twitter bio – was on Jan. 17, 2017 in Jacobin.
