WaPo Editor: Trump Attacks Amazon Because He Has a ‘Jealousy Issue with Jeff Bezos’ (Breitbart)

Sunday on CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” Washington Post senior editor Marc Fisher said President Donald Trump
attacks Amazon because he has a “jealousy issue” with Jeff Bezos being number one on Forbes’ list of billionaires.

Fisher said, “You can make the very same correlation looking at some critical Washington Post stories that somehow get under the president’s skin and then he immediately attacks the Washington Post and Amazon, pretending they’re one and the same, when in fact they happen to share an owner, but nothing more.”

He continued, “But 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, where Forbes came out recently with its new list of the wealthiest billionaires. Jeff Bezos is at number one, and the president is at number 766. He has had a long-standing obsession with that Forbes list and doesn’t like where he is on it.”
