O'Handley is a former California-based Hollywood entertainment lawyer and now a conservative political commentator. He has also written opinions and had appeared on Fox Business in addition to the given work titles.
Previously, O'Handley was a timid Republican. Though born to two outspoken Democrats, he leaned right. However, he would not openly support Donald Trump since he lost friends, career opportunities, and social media followers every time he publicly backed his ideologies.
But, after Trump was elected as the President, he created an Instagram account (dc_draino) to serve as a platform for conservative communication. It was O'Handley's secret account back then to anonymously communicate his conservative ideas and ideologies that ultimately garnered a large fan base. (dc_draino) uses a mix of memes, screenshots from his Twitter, and short, concise political movies to criticize Democrats. His Instagram account also included statements affirming the prevailing pandemic that reads, "It's OK to not be scared of COVID." He even urges that the state should abolish compulsory vaccinations mandated by schools and workplaces.
After he gained 80,000 followers on his account, he quit his job as an entertainment lawyer to pursue a full-time career as a social media expert and political activist. He now earns money by advertising to his fans. Furthermore, his Instagram bio reflects his profile as a conservative lawyer, civil rights activist, citizen journalist, and anti-white supremacist and has a massive following, with over 2 million followers. One of his tweets was even retweeted by former President Trump in May 2020 that catapulted him to a viral reputation.
Former President Trump had invited him to the White House for the 2019 Social Media Summit and the 2020 Republican National Convention. He also speaks at colleges, high schools, and conferences regularly.
Banned from Twitter
Amidst the run-up to the 2020 election, O'Handley, a Republican supporter, had to deal with the actions of the California Office of Elections Cybersecurity for his consistent tweets criticizing the Joe Biden government.
From November 2020 to February 2021, O'Handley voiced his Republican expression through a series of tweets that read," How about a 9/11 commission-style report on what the hell just happened past this election?! When half our country stops believing in the integrity of our vote, that's an *emergency situation*," "When your country is stolen and you aren't even allowed to talk about it, that is not freedom, It's fascism," "We are captives under a government we didn't elect. It was forced upon us. That is by definition a dictatorship," and many more.
He also demanded every California ballot be audited and deployed a panel to investigate the 2020 election results. He continuously voiced against voting fraud, but all of his demands were promptly "flagged" by leftist operatives working for the California Secretary of State, who then requested Twitter to delete O'Handley's tweets. He was permanently removed from Twitter in February 2021 for allegedly breaking election integrity standards.
