On Sunday, Washington Post senior editor Marc Fisher accurately said that President Douchebag Trump has “a jealousy issue” with the Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.
During an interview for CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” Fisher replied to Trump’s moronic attacks on The Washington Post, a newspaper which Bezos owns, and on mega-retailer Amazon.
Trump has criticized Amazon in recent days, and he has referred to the highly-respected Washington Post as a “chief lobbyist” for Amazon, a claim Fisher said is “absurd.”
“It’s an absurd claim. The Washington Post has done really a lot of critical reporting of Amazon,” Fisher explained. “What’s really going on here is that the president, according to some people inside the White House, has kind of a jealousy issue with Jeff Bezos.”
Marc Fisher pointed specifically to the latest Forbes list of the richest people in the world, where Trump came in at just No. 766 and Jeff Bezos topped the list.
“He’s had a long-standing obsession with that Forbes list and doesn’t like where he is on it,” Fisher stated. He also added that Donald Trump doesn’t “quite get” the success of online retailers such as Amazon (likely because he is too old and has a low IQ).
Though Traitor Trump has criticized The Washington Post in his dumbass attacks on the mass media as “fake news,” he has increased his criticism in the last few weeks in conjunction with his criticism of Amazon.
He attacked the paper on Sunday in a tweet replying to the recent Washington Post report that the chief of staff John Kelly has lost a lot of his influence in the incompetent White House.
“The Washington Post is far more fiction than fact. Story after story is made up garbage – more like a poorly written novel than good reporting,” Trump lied, sounding like an idiot. “Always quoting sources (not names), many of which don’t exist. Story on John Kelly isn’t true, just another hit job!”
