When you’re as rich as Jeff Bezos, the owner of Amazon and The Washington Post, you can do pretty much whatever you want. In this case, he decided to gather 20 individuals to dig up every ounce of dirt they can on the presumptive GOP nominee.
“There’s a lot we don’t know,” associate editor Bob Woodward said yesterday at a convention, according to the Washington Examiner. “We have 20 people working on Trump, we’re going to do a book, we’re doing articles about every phase of his life.”
As Trump always does, he pulled out the big guns and responded with no mercy.
“Every hour we’re getting calls from reporters from The Washington Post asking ridiculous questions,” Trump told Hannity. “And I will tell you, this is owned as a toy by Jeff Bezos … 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.”
“He thinks I’ll go after him for antitrust,” Trump continued. “Because he’s got a huge antitrust problem because he’s controlling so much, Amazon is controlling so much of what they are doing.”
“He’s using The Washington Post, which is peanuts, he’s using that for political purposes to save Amazon in terms of taxes and in terms of antitrust.”
As a side note, Woodward felt that dropping a massive research team on Hillary Clinton was not necessary, as they’re just looking for the “essence” of her.
The Post did tell Fox News later, however, that it was assigning the same number of reporters to Clinton as it had to Trump. Perhaps their fieldwork might help move along the FBI investigation targeting her.
“I don’t think anyone feels that there was intent on her part to distribute classified information in a way that was illegal or jeopardized security,” he told the audience.
That says it all. The Washington Post’s research already seems to lack objectivity.
