As Prznint Stupid has proven he is a stable genius beyond a shadow of a doubt, Axios notes, what with Social Media and Faceberg in the news that he has his keen intellect focused, bigly, on… Amazon?
“Trump tells people Amazon has gotten a free ride from taxpayers and cushy treatment from the U.S. Postal Service.”
“Hey,” Comrade Trump didn’t say, “getting a free ride from taxpayers is MY GRIFT!”
“The whole post office thing, that’s very much a perception he has,” another source said. “It’s been explained to him in multiple meetings that his perception is inaccurate and that the post office actually makes a ton of money from Amazon.”
“Axios’ Ina Fried notes: The Postal Service actually added delivery on Sunday in some cities because Amazon made it worthwhile.”
But none of this sounds like Comrade Prznint Stupid whose only policies reflect himself or his grifting. So why is he so focused on Amazon? Oh, wait:
“Trump also pays close attention to the Amazon founder’s ownership of The Washington Post, which the president views as Bezos’ political weapon.”
Comrade Trump only understands tangible things (brick-and-mortar stores, paper-based mail and so on), so Facebook? Not so much. (except that it did give him his election with a boost from Russia, even though he thinks that is a HOAX!!1!) So, you know, what’s the worry about Faceberg?
Back to Axios:
“A source who’s spoken to POTUS: “He’s wondered aloud if there may be any way to go after Amazon with antitrust or competition law.”
“Trump’s deep-seated antipathy toward Amazon surfaces when discussing tax policy and antitrust cases. The president would love to clip CEO Jeff Bezos’ wings. But he doesn’t have a plan to make that happen.”
OK, so a couple of things there to note which should set off alarm bells. 1) Comrade Prznint is aiming for a political enemy and seems to be musing for a way for the Federal Government to do his bidding and B) dontcha just think some of this is Stupid’s jealousy that Bezos is the richest man in the world (currently)?
