Scott Galloway, a professor of marketing at NYU Stern School of Business and an Amazon expert, told MSNBC on Friday why he thinks President Donald Trump is involved in the National Enquirer’s alleged blackmail of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.
Host Stephanie Ruhle asked Galloway to elaborate on his statement from Thursday night, in which he said Trump was probably “directly involved” because the president “never misses opportunity to mock enemies… Also he is petty, immature and terrible role model for youth.”
“A key tell among law enforcement officials is when someone is driving 45 miles an hour in the fast lane, that they’re hiding something,” Galloway explained. “The president’s silence on this is eerie.”
“He tweeted about Bezos calling him ‘Bozo’ January 4th — but this is someone who never misses an opportunity to mock someone he perceives as an adversary via Twitter and he hasn’t said anything and I think that’s — that’s a tell here”
“And like with a Facebook hack or any scandal involving the president, the only thing we know for sure is that it’s almost worser, always worse than we originally thought. I think this is going to be one of the biggest stories of 2019 and there are several cards still to be turned over here.”
“Put another way: The president and [American Media Inc.] are both acting like guilty parties right now,” Galloway added.
Rick Tyler, a former communications director for Republican Senator Ted Cruz (R), noted that Trump is friends with David Pecker, the chief executive of AMI, which publishes the National Enquirer.
“He has consistently used that tabloid to strike at his political enemies, he did that with Ted Cruz and here he’s doing it with Jeff Bezo,” Tyler remarked.

"We not gonna lose this, except if they cheat," Trump falsely claimed about the 2020 campaign, where he trails Joe Biden in national and battleground polling.
"That's the only way we're gonna lose is if there's, uh, mischief," he argued. "And it will have to be on a big scale."
