Comrade Trump Goes (Washington) Postal

Seething Rage.

The Hive:

“Now, according to four sources close to the White House, Trump is discussing ways to escalate his Twitter attacks on Amazon to further damage the company. “He’s off the hook on this. It’s war,” one source told me. “He gets obsessed with something, and now he’s obsessed with Bezos,” said another source. “Trump is like, how can I fuck with him?”

I’d be really surprised if any of his underlings and assorted stooges and grifters didn’t short the stock, btw.

Look, I’m no fan of Bezos, and especially not a fan of Amazon, but I am old enough to remember how Wingnuttia lectured everyone that the White House shouldn’t be picking winners and losers.

That said, it is really weird to see a prznint actually trying to harm the US economy:

“Traders said anxieties were being exacerbated by Donald Trump’s tweets and trade policies. A fresh presidential Twitter swipe against Amazon sent its shares down 5.2 per cent.”

The reality teevee show prznintcy continues unabated. This whole administration has nothing to do with governance, just with his grifting and giving Comrade Stupid weapons to inflict pain on his enemies, just for his pettiness. There are no policies, there is only him.

The Grifter-in-Chief is upset with Bezos self-made wealth, methinks. He could not care less about the Post Office otherwise. And as for the WaPo, well, anything that doesn’t give him a tongue bath is his enemy. Maybe he’d feel differently about it if the next porn star spanks him with a copy of it?

  1. Trumplandia depends heavily on Amazon, Wal-mart and the USPS. Hair Führer is fucking with all three. Trumplandia is getting especially screwed by him.

    500 Quatloos on his ratings going UP among them, because he’s also screaming about the evil browns who took all their jobs and are just here to be lazy and suck up welfare.

      I wonder sometimes how Possum Hollar can hold so many contradictory ideas in their heads at the same time.

    If the Founders never imagined a President Caligula, they sure as hell should have. Our political system is failing rapidly and completely because it never presumed one person could be so devoid of self-restraint while all others around him were devoid of interest in doing anything about it.

    Former U.S. Attorney for NY Preet Bharara suggested that Bezo’s, having lost several billion in stock value over the past few days due to Trump’s tweets (from $130 billion to ONLY $114 billion), should buy a controlling interest in Twitter, and then ban Trump from that service.

      Even better than banning Trump would be editing each tweet he issues to something along the lines of “I regularly suck Putin’s ass”

      Boy, that would really drive Trump around the bend, but after he got banned, how would we know?

      And in other news, Melania’s anti-bullying campaign is paying dividends. We’re a much more civil society now.

    A few more tweets and the stock market will be where it was in Jan ’17. It will be interesting to hear who he blames for his downturn.

    Trump lost about $400 million in rent revenue because Amazon has hit brick and mortar retailers.

    Trump is definitely one of those “It is not enough that I am winning, but the others must also be losing.” kind of guys.

    Of course, we only have his word for it that he is winning, And taking one last shot at pulling somebody down is so much more fun than contemplating the fucking morass he’s gotten his own affairs into.
