Donald Trump Goes Back To The '70s With His Exciting New Enemies List!
sock it ... to me?
Donald J. Trump may only be the PRESUMPTIVE Republican nominee, but that hasn't stopped him from starting an enemies list, and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is now at the tippy-top.
In an interview with Fox News's own talking hairpiece, Sean Hannity, Trump accused Bezos of violating those pesky anti-trust laws, and discrimination through the Washington Post after the Post's guy who once did some good journalism, Bob Woodward, commented that the Post has assigned 20 staffers to investigate Trump's past.
"Amazon is getting away with murder tax-wise. He's using the Washington Post for power so that the politicians in Washington don't tax Amazon like they should be taxed."
OH SNAP! Can you believe it? The top one-tenth-of-one-percent are buying media companies to spread filthy lies about other super-rich people -- then CHEATING on their taxes?
Be right back, I am having a touch of the vapors!
Trump went on to accuse Bezos of having a monopoly, but when you're the only person delivering 55 gallon drums of lube , how much competition is really out there?
It even says BEST value!
Trump's not the only one angry with Bezos. Just last month, Bloomberg accused Amazon of racism for its lack of Same-Day service in the minority neighborhoods of 27 major cities including L.A., Chicago, and New York. After the Congressional Black Caucus slapped Bezos with a strongly worded letter, Amazon announced it would increase its deliveries to include all the zip codes of cities in which it's currently operating.
That's not even counting the workers who Bezos has literally made cry while working for him.
However, Trump accusing anyone of racism and tax-fraud is just wee-bit hypocritical considering he's currently being audited (AGAIN -- seriously, IRS, how much does a man have to pay for you to GO AWAY?), and also he is Donald Trump.
There's crazy, and then there's cray-cray.
In the past 48 hours, those muckraking reporters at the Post fired several shots across the bow of the Trump-train, digging up several stories about Trump posing as his own spokesperson when talking with reporters (which he now says TOTALLY NEVER HAPPENED ), and crude excerpts from Trump's appearances on The Howard Stern Show where Trump talked about trying to "bang" Cindy Crawford, Diane Sawyer and Princess Diana (if she were still alive). America is so full of winners!
Anyway, we are very sure Donald Trump would never abuse his power to go after either Amazon or some nerd reporter down the street, and you definitely shouldn't worry he would sic the IRS on you, or the Justice Department, or any of the other things rightwingers are absolutely convinced Barack Obama has been doing for the past eight years except he hasn't but Donald Trump definitely would, the end.
