Apparently, Kurt Eichenwald — who may or may not have a contract with Vanity Fair and MSNBC — sent a series of emails to Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro regarding Parkland survivor Kyle Kashuv . . .
Eichenwald emailed Shapiro Tuesday claiming he was doing a piece on Shapiro’s and Kashuv’s professional relationship, however, the email comes across extremely condescending toward Kyle — and the right in general.
The emails sent by Eichenwald to Shapiro called into question Kyle’s mental health, accused Kyle of using right-wing trolls and Ben Shapiro to agitate Eichenwald online, and of being “obsessed” with Shapiro to an unhealthy extent. Shapiro didn’t take kindly to the emails and posted them online . . .
“I consulted a friend of mine who is a psychiatrist – a political conservative, since that seems so important to you – and based on what he read, the psychiatrist said the following,” claimed Eichenwald. “Kyle is in desperate need of psychiatric help or support.”
He later refers to Kashuv as a “psychologically troubled kid” and asks Shapiro not to show the emails to Kyle. Eichenwald then accuses Shapiro’s followers of sending him strobe GIFs to trigger an epileptic seizure.
I just received this from @kurteichenwald. There are no words for how wild this email is. @VanityFair is apparently an odd place.I just received this from @kurteichenwald. There are no words for how wild this email is. @VanityFair is apparently an odd place. pic.twitter.com/Ik1bfjoKyl
