Jeff Bezos, owner of Amazon and the Washington Post, has been having a rough time in the media after he divorced his wife to be with his mistress. But somehow he’s blaming the fallout on President Trump.
Bezos has used a blog post to claim that the National Enquirer is blackmailing him with “intimate photos,” and he’s implying that it’s for President Trump.
“Here’s a piece of context: My ownership of the Washington Post is a complexifier for me. It’s unavoidable that certain powerful people who experience Washington Post news coverage will wrongly conclude I am their enemy. President Trump is one of those people, obvious by his many tweets,” Bezos wrote.
Now the internet is rife with conspiracy theories tying Trump to National Enquirer. Anti-Trump activists like Bill Kristol, Seth Abramson, and Rex Huppke have all been circulating the absurdity.
However there is no such link and without evidence this is just another whining liberal looking for someone else to point their finger at.
