3. I believe he stopped being a journalist

around the time his escapades and misogyny in Russia was made public.

12. Greenwald praising Breitbart is a nice touch.

Just in case there was anyone left who didn't think he'd lost his effing mind....

7. I used to read Taibbi regularly - not any more

Don't forget that he was in Moscow for graduate school for several years in the early 90's. I think he either drank the Russian koolaid or maybe they have some kompromat on him. Don't know, but he's not the same writer he was before Chump came along.

8. Taibbi was awesome during the banking crisis but now he's more interested in attacking

the resistance and making fun of the Russia probe. He's on a list of anti anti Trump journalists with Greenwald, Aaron Mate of The Nation and Michael Tracey. Can't stand any of them.

9. WTF is he even talking about?

I wanted Asshole impeached before he was inaugurated, so I'm more dangerous than him?

Does he mean Pelosi? Schiff? Random angry lefties?

11. No: I never considered him a reputable journalist in the first place

This dates back to 2003-2004
