In a series of tweets that have since been deleted, Senior Newsweek writer Kurt Eichenwald made absurd statements regarding ill will toward GOP family members over the congressional passage of the American Health Care Act (AHCA) on Thursday.

From his personal Twitter account, Eichenwald went on a rant over the AHCA.  He apparently has a preexisting condition and is very concerned about his coverage.  Financial worries and thoughts of his potential death due to lack of coverage led him to take to Twitter, hoping for ruin and death to befall the lawmakers who passed the bill.

Then, he made a claim that is unsubstantiated about the GOP celebrating the AHCA with a round of beer.

The Daily Caller took note of the Tweets and published an article, which included screen grabs of the Twitter rampage.  In response, Eichenwald  complained to his Twitter followers.

Although The Daily Caller reported that Newsweek had not responded with a comment on Eichenwald’s behavior, Eichenwald deleted the tweets and decided to rephrase his comments, changing to a more mature tone.

One Twitter user, Bill Moran, suggested he may have had reason to rephrase.

A brief scroll through Eichenwald’s Twitter feed indicates he is not a fan of President Trump.  In December 2016, he was involved in a lawsuit over a tweet he received from a Trump fan after the writer made unsubstantiated claims about Trump.

Eichenwald has also defended claims of media bias on Tucker Carlson.

The Daily Caller reports that Eichenwald lists himself as a contributing editor at Vanity Fair and a contributor for MSNBC.
