So there was Preet Bharara, the former U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York until he was unexpectedly fired by President Trump early this year, minding his own business on Twitter while discussing the 1977 Academy Awards race, and this Florida man just attacks him out of nowhere.
I love Rocky. This was not a normative statement.

Preet, You like to attack President Trump for firing you. Trump was right. YOU DID NOTHING to stop Naked Short Selling on Wall Street. That is why you were fired, so stop your Political nonsense and BS

Seems a little out of the blue given the context, although Bharara has been a frequent Twitter commentator and a critic of President Trump, putting him amongst the majority of Americans who disapprove of the President’s performance in office.
Richard Keane, in as much as can be gleaned from his Twitter profile and a brief Google search, is a movie producer and narrator, a crypto-currency investor, and a partner in a website that gives you this message in your browser when you click on the link:
Preet Bharara defended himself quite ably from this unprovoked attack.
No, I criticize President Trump, as is my right in free America, for lying, undermining democracy, and threatening the rule of law. Thanks for your opinion, which I also think is nonsense and BS. Touché https://t.co/hV63zsiob7

Bharara’s followers on Twitter clearly agreed with him judging from the comments on his reply.

Speak truth to power, Mr. Bharara. In this time of Trump, we can still speak out and criticize our elected officials.

Let’s hope that Mr. Bharara continues to speak truth to power as that last Twitter reply exhorts!
