Breitbart Reporter: ‘They’re Trying To Destroy My Life’

Patrick Howley, a reporter for Breitbart News, isn’t feeling so bubbly lately.

In a Facebook post, he expressed his ominous view that there’s an oppo folder on him that’s about to be unleashed.

In short, he writes, “They’re trying to destroy my life.”

“I have been informed by the GOP Establishment that there is a Patrick Howley oppo folder that is going to be released after the election. I can really only imagine some of the things that are in it. Considering the folks behind it, it’s clear that a lot of it is going to be fabricated. I told them ‘Good, I will respond at length to the revelations,’ and just be funny about it, but now that I think about it, fuck them. I’m not going to reply to it at all. They’re not funny and they’re not trying to be funny, they’re trying to destroy my life, so why should I be funny about it? I don’t really feel funny at the moment, even though obviously 99 percent of the oppo packet is going to be jokes I’ve made intentionally taken out of context. I’m basically just going with a ‘fuck them’ approach. We have big problems in this country. Let them come at me. Who cares?”

Reporters typically have an enemy or two. And Howley has been known to push the envelope.

Full disclosure: Howley is a former reporter for The Daily Caller. He sat diagonally from me and occasionally laughed like a hyena. And if you don’t know what that sounds like, watch below.
