I read Kurt Eichenwald's tweets! He's fighting the media, and Trump supporters everyday!

His Newsweek piece gets hacked. Please read him, follow him here: https://twitter.com/kurteichenwald I think this brave investigator needs our support.

Now he is angry at Miami Herald for reprinting Trump's editorial from 1999 when he ran for President (reform Party) the 1st time acting like he was for the Cuban embargo. He is calling them out because they reprinted without mentioning his Newsweek findings that in 1998 Trump had broken the embargo by spending money in Cuba.

Hey @MiamiHerald! U reprinted Trump 6/99 op ed supporting Cuban embargo today. Perhaps u should print this 2/99 invoice showing he broke it?

fighting with truth and integrity against 2 very large, self-serving, shallow, dense, treacherous bodies of human jerks.
Trump supporters and the souless, cowardly media.
