Who is matt taibbi dating
He’s kind of the perfect foil to reflect everything that’s excessive and vulgar and disgusting and tasteless and cheap and greedy about American culture.He is the perfect mirror to reflect everything about our society.He’s a—you know, it was kind of hate at first sight, actually, when I first saw him on the campaign trail.He’s a fascinating, repellent, awful, epically horrible character.He was extremely explicit about it throughout the entire campaign season, dating back to January and February, when he used it as a club to beat on Ted Cruz, because both his wife—Cruz’s wife and Cruz himself had a financial relationship to Goldman Sachs.
