Before any of you @ me with respecting people when they’re dead or any of that bullshit, remember that David Koch was an awful human in life. His actions will ensure that this planet is less hospitable for your children & grandchildren. Your life is better from him being dead.

Someone responded to @MikeResistance1, saying that the Koch family’s money will live on. He replied, “I know. Give me 5 minutes of happiness.”
Another account, @RelUnrelated, wrote on Twitter that “the world became a slightly better place when he reached room temperature.”

A writer for The Nation magazine said “it rules that he died.”
Whether or not you agreed with David Koch’s ideology, there is no denying that fuck him and it rules that he died.
