The bleeding tree UK : Shkreli is a hero and a genius.

Kevin Hernandez : This guy was not baffled by a single question...goals

JuanCa DaColombian : he's a smart guy playing along the corrupted system that we have placed, what about doctor billing stupid numbers to insurance companies?, over 30k for an hour of surgery? happen to me, so matter fact the real enemy of this guy are the insurance companies.

FamilyFirst!! : All hate for this guy aside....he's whip sharp and mentally smart with his words and seems to know his stuff.!!

Cpt STEEZ : Still baffled by how the media treated this story...

Luis Capellan : LMAO Martin is a savage.

Andrew B : This guy is insanely smart and really does make his case well, it's just baffling that he plays into this evil douche arcitype and not hard to see why everyone hates him.

Ryan Howe : I love this guy

H Lee : Daraprim's patent was over in the 1970s, any company can make a version of the drug, but it's not worth manufacturing the drug because there were a grand total of 8000 prescriptions written for Daraprim in the USA. That's not a profitable market size for a most generic drug company. The generic drug company's don't want to spend the R&D to reverse engineer the drug. So if Turing is willing to make the drug, they should be able to sell at the price they want.

Jeff Pack : He's really brilliant.

Cliff Smith : This is the devil in the flesh

Jocelyn Limelight : daraprim plot is vs the healthcare billionaires the pill is free

BackUP : Completely destroyed them ez

TheMilsimGamer : The finesse is real 😂😂😂

Fatty Acid : nice attitude dude!

Federalist : Shkrel iced that soy boy

Joshua Roberts : the key element to all of this is Obamacare, which no one has even mentioned - this move was about positioning to the drug to take advantage of the new landscape CRAFTED by the insurance multinationals...

Ariel Vo : Shkreli is smart, and right about increasing the price for this drug. it help increase attractiveness and new development of new better drug. Also if some disease is expensive, then people will be more conscious about HIV and be more cautious. Blame him, blame others big drug company as well.

Mrdekker100 : Smart Guy

Herbie Shevers : And now he's in jail for fraud.

Blitz Kreig : It’s not everyday you get to talk to a hedge fund manager.

Sonny Torres : 1:16 when you like what you're gonna get paid.

the critico alternative libertarian media : usa isnt capitalist country... its a plutocracy based on extortion

BOSTON GERR 12 : Blonde is Yummy !

Illustrious13 : What he isn't saying and why it's important to the liberal politicians he's criticizing: the incentive (money) that drug makers need comes out of the pocket of the consumer of said drugs more than it does the government agencies that provide the aid for consumers who can't afford the drugs. Look, we all know that pharmaceutical companies need money in order to create and distribute medications, and he makes a good point that without said capital they could never do such a thing. Here is where this becomes an economics theory question: where should that money come from? Our more conservative-minded friends believe that the individual is responsible for affording their own health. Our more liberal-minded friends believe that the health of the society is provided by the government and the businesses who provide resources for that society, as well as by the individual. Reality lies in-between each pole of this debate. But, because of the nature of federal tax revenue and the neglect the insured suffer from insurance companies as well as the limited opportunities for the impoverished to not only afford any kind of insurance but to have access to appropriate health care, the COST for the drugs falls upon the INDIVIDUAL almost exclusively. Martin Shkreli knows that people don't make these connections, and that's terrifying.

Jordan Goetz : whatever, long kbio make that $$$$$$$$

Soothing Voice Man : what a little rat faced dweeb.
