“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?
