Prznint Stupid Demands Increase in Postal Rates Because He Doesn’t like Newspaper Owner Who Uses Postal Service

Trumper tantrum

We’ve talked before about how much Prznint Stupid hates Jeff Bezos (I know, take a number): he’s richer and self-made richer, he’s smarter, and he owns the WaPo. So in the traditional mango-hued shitgibbon’s way, Bezos must be destroyed!

It comes as little surprise that Prznint Stupid is trying to use the awesome power of the Federal Gubmint to smite his enemies, which if this were a banana republic instead of a banana Republican, we would all be tsk-tsking this.

The WaPo tells us that

“President Trump has personally pushed U.S. Postmaster General Megan Brennan to double the rate the Postal Service charges Amazon.com and other firms to ship packages.” Brennan has resisted. “She has told the president that the Amazon relationship is beneficial for the Postal Service and gave him a set of slides that showed the variety of companies, in addition to Amazon, that also partner for deliveries. Despite these presentations, Trump has continued to level criticism at Amazon.”

This would cost Amazon (and other companies) billions of dollars which would end up costing their customers billions of dollars.

Brennan and Stupid have met about the matter several times. Thus far Brennan, a 32-year veteran of the Postal Service, has told him “in multiple conversations this year and last that these arrangements are bound by contracts and must be reviewed by a regulatory commission.” She also told him that the Post Office loses money delivering first-class letters (especially to rural places like Possum Hollar where his base lives), it makes money on package delivery.

Doesn’t matter. Bezos must be punished. Let’s conclude with Elmira Gantry Huckabee-Sanders skillful deflecting the controversy:

“We are doing a total look at how the post office is operating. But [we] don’t have anything specific for you on that.”

    Why doesn’t he just blockade Amazon like he did Qatar? Now, thanks to Qatar, the gay Jew is firmly ensconced at 666 5th Ave. Hey wait!! Gay Jew? 666? Perhaps the evangelicals are onto something after all. (And by gay, I mean happy happy joy joy.)

    “Bound by contracts.” Trump has demonstrated over the years that contracts don’t mean anything to him.

    Yes, package delivery is lucrative and first class letter mail is not. The USPS is legally bound to letter mail, but package delivery is open market. For-profit delivery services already dominate where it’s feasible (profitable) for them to do so, but these same services contract with USPS to cover the regions where USPS has considerable facilities already in place so the for-profit services don’t have to put resources into those areas. This is a public-private win-win and Trump’s about to screw it up royally. I can’t even find a greedy corporate reason behind it, because without the USPS covering these areas with contract service, it would be a loss leader for private companies to have to do it AND THEY DON’T WANT TO. Trump’s idiocy and narcissism are solely behind this move.
