Martin Shkreli is enjoying this a little too much.

The outspoken 32-year-old, who smirked as he was quizzed by members of Congress, tweeted on Friday night that his only regret was not bringing his Nintendo DS along with him.

Shkreli, who spent most of his Friday night retweeting people who had nice things to say about him, had earlier posted a message on Twitter calling members of Congress ‘imbeciles’.

The former head of Turing Pharmaceuticals was called to testify in a House oversight hearing on prescription drug prices.
