The National Enquirer and its parent, American Media Inc., entered into a cooperation agreement with the Southern District of New York in light of campaign issues involving Donald Trump and Michael Cohen. Cohen is set to testify to the House on February 7th about all he knows, and part of that might well include what he knows about the AMI vault and what its leader, David Pecker, has suppressed regarding Trump or disclosed against Trump’s enemies at his direction.
Now, in a sign of desperation and having a fool for his counsel (himself, among others), Trump has tweeted: “So sorry to hear the news about Jeff Bozo being taken down by a competitor whose reporting, I understand, is far more accurate than the reporting in his lobbyist newspaper, the Amazon Washington Post. Hopefully the paper will soon be placed in better & more responsible hands!”
Setting aside how inaccurate the National Enquirer and AMI are, it takes a high level of foolishness or lack of sobriety for someone to be so stupid as to wade into the AMI/National Enquirer thicket when those folks are cooperating with prosecutors and Cohen will publicly explain the Trump Corpus Corruptus soon.
The tweet also came in the wake of a very damaging Washington Post article concerning issues about whether Trump was working with the Russians. The tweet of course refers to the National Enquirer’s reporting on texts and correspondence between Jeff Bezos and his mistress, and the divorce that has been announced. As always, Trump’s tweet resorts to his normal modus operandi- name calling (“Bozo”), lies (“more accurate”), and attacks on the last bastion of our republic, the free press (“Amazon Washington Post”).
No, Amazon does not own the Washington Post, and the Washington Post is not a lobbying arm of anyone. Finally, the Post is far more accurate than anything the National Enquirer will publish. The “president” is a fool and he is fool to himself, not to mention he has fools surrounding him who will not advise him to shut his mouth and not create additional legal trouble for him.
