Kurt Eichenwald Threw Fit, Quit Community App Over Neighbors’ Politics
Former New York Times reporter Kurt Eichenwald, who has been relegated to Twitter troll since President Donald J. Trump declared his candidacy, threw a hilarious fit and quit an app that is supposed to bring communities together.
In a post titled “Neighbor Selfishness Drives Me Away,” Eichenwald wrote the following:
“I am disconnecting from this site. I have found it useful for community information, but I have neither the time nor the interest to check all of the ‘politics, politics, I support so-and-so garbage. NONE of your neighbors care who you support. That you think we do underscores the utter self-absorption and toxic nature of today’s politics.
The worst offenders are the Cruz supporters. I don’t know why you think your neighbors appreciate you using this as a facebook site to promote your politics. The self-centeredness of this behavior has left me questioning the quality of this neighborhood.
Politics is about government, nothing else. It is not your “team” or your “victory” and the sick mindset where politicians become our gods – whether democrat or republican – reflects our infantile society.
So… goodbye. Sorry the immature ones destroyed their site.
Eichenwald must be a riot at the annual block party.
“Well, bye,” one of his neighbors responded hilariously.
Nextdoor is a social network that is supposed to bring communities together and allow them to stay connected.
“Nextdoor is the best way to stay informed about what’s going on in your neighborhood—whether it’s finding a last-minute babysitter, planning a local event, or sharing safety tips. There are so many ways our neighbors can help us, we just need an easier way to connect with them,” its website said.
Eichenwald has made multiple embarrassing blunders since being infected with an incurable case of Trump Derangement Syndrome, including advising everyone to sell their stocks before the Trump presidency.
“Eichenwald, whose self-hyped pieces have nary broken news, has become infamous both for his wrongness and for his regular Twitter meltdowns,” said a fantastic piece in The Outline detailing his rise and ungracious fall.
