You may know Shkreli by several monikers: the "Pharma bro," the "most hated man in America," and the "[guy] who raised the price of HIV-medicine by 5,500 percent."

But media outlets immediately pointed after Shkreli's diagnosis that missing from that unenviable list of nicknames is the one that would qualify him to make it: "Doctor."

Shkreli's unimpressed.

It's a statement that seems in line with the style of his preferred candidate, Donald Trump. Although the conspiracy website InfoWars explained that Shkreli is non-partisan and thereby as trustworthy to make an impartial diagnosis as any non-doctor, a quick look at Shkreli's Twitter outs him as an unconcealed Trump supporter.

As conspiracies on #HillarysHealth abound, you might arm yourself with knowledge from The Washington Post, which debunks several Shkreli-endorsed theories.

And if you go for a checkup at the offices of Dr. Martin "Pharma Bro" Shkreli, make sure he's got his "beautiful Doctor babe" with him. Because, as he reminds you, he never had time to actually learn about medicine—but he's happy to pretend.
