The Daily Caller

Who Am I And Why Am I Here?

My name is Derek Hunter…and I’m not an alcoholic. Nor am I a junkie of any kind. What I am is a writer and radio host (heard noon till 3:00 eastern on WBAL in Baltimore) and on top of a bunch of other jobs I used to hold, was the very first person hired by Tucker Carlson and Neil Patel to create the Daily Caller (I talked them out of the name “Northwest Corner.” You’re welcome.)

I’m also a friend of Treacher’s. As such, I volunteered to keep this blog updated while he goes on his well-deserved coke and hooker bender this month after his settlement with the State Department. While Sean assures me he didn’t get a large enough settlement to go on a month long coke and hooker bender, I expect at least a week or two to be spent that way.

Daily Caller Publisher Neil Patel probably forgot that I took this picture of him in a Snuggie, but I didn't.

So until his return or parole, whichever comes first, I’ll be rambling and mocking politicians, pundits, celebrities and anyone else deserving (or not) in this space.

Now go grill some chunks of dead animals and/or drink some booze, it’s Labor Day.

I bought a Snuggie once while drunk. Rather than run from that fact, I embraced it... I needed a hobby.
