Trump ‘directly involved’ in alleged blackmail scheme against Jeff Bezos: Amazon expert

Published

on

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.

Published

"The View" erupted into a shouting match over President Donald Trump's racist smears of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and other Democratic congresswomen, even though all the panelists seemed to agree his remarks were abhorrent.

Co-hosts Ana Navarro and Sunny Hostin blasted "self-righteous hypocrite" Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) for defending the president's comments, and Meghan McCain challenged Democrats to defeat Trump for re-election.

"This is so bad," McCain said. "It's like nothing I have ever seen, and I don't think anyone in this room has ever seen before, and if you can't beat this, this blatant racism, what does this say about your party?"
