If you want to run for President in 2020 and everybody hates you, then it’s a pretty good idea to have some deep pockets in your back-pocket. Hillary Clinton is cozying up to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos for just that reason.
Bezos recently jumped up to a net worth of $90 BILLION dollars, briefly surpassing Bill Gates to become the wealthiest person in the United States. Bezos has tremendous influence between being CEO of Amazon, owning the Washington Post, and executing a $600 million dollar deal for the CIA… oh, you didn’t know about that? That’s because the media is paid to shut up about it.
Watch him laughably play dumb to Charlie Rose about buying the WP:
Consider that Amazon makes half of all profits in the online marketplace. Yes, half of all purchases made on the internet go straight to Amazon. Monopoly much?
At it’s peak in 2009, Walmart had 12% of the retail marketplace and it’s long been considered a small business, job-killing corporate behemoth. Imagine if that figure bumped up to 50%. And then Walmart bought the Washington Post. And Whole Foods. And brokered a deal with the CIA.
That’s Jeff Bezos.
And now Hillary is turning to him to support her for yet another potential (but already doomed) Presidential run. Gee, I wonder if that has anything to do with all those 1-star reviews of her Bernie-slandering book that Amazon keeps mysteriously deleting… maybe a Vice President position?
The love fest has begun.
