It’s been 34 days since Palmer Luckey, the founder of Oculus VR has said or done anything publicly. The guy who sold his company to Facebook for $2 billion in 2014 released a brief statement after the Daily Beast revealed his participation in Nimble America, a pro-Trump, anti-Clinton meme posting political advocacy group.
