LISTEN TO TLR’S LATEST PODCAST:


By Kody Fairfield

Kurt Eichenwald, a senior writer for Newsweek, lost his mind on Twitter on Friday, following the passage of the Republican led American Health Care Act, said the Blaze.

Eichenwald even went as far as to suggest that he hopes that every Republican congressman who voted for “Trumpcare” has a family member get a “long term condition,” then lose their health insurance and die.

He Tweeted (and later deleted):

He continued his rant saying:

In response to his emotional outburst, many Twitter users pushed back on his vitriol. Eichenwald’s rage was too much for reason however, and he doubled down on his statements.

The clearly emotional Newsweek writer even took to a long, 482-word statement to the Daily Caller, in which he reiterated his sentiments.

The only way people incapable of empathy will understand reality is when they face it. So yes, to save millions, I think the people who inflicted these consequences on strangers should see the consequences up close and personal.

The goprs in congress didn’t just send out a tweet wishing for me to face my own death. They actually voted to do it. If people don’t give a damn about the consequences of what they do, they should face those consequences. They shouldn’t all be inflicted on strangers.

I want them to feel what millions of us are feeling tonight – fear, desperation, a knowledge that any moment could start the countdown to our deaths.

Unfortunately for this snowflake, the AHCA did indeed pass the house and it seems like his roller coaster of emotions is just starting.

The health care bill passed by the House on Thursday is not yet law. The Senate hasn’t yet heard the bill, and they are expected to pass their own version of the bill, complicating the law making process, according to the Blaze
