President Trump praised the National Enquirer without naming it on Sunday night, while calling Amazon founder and #Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos “Jeff Bozo.”
“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!”
Why it matters: The National Enquirer is the publication that published many of the details on the end of Bezos’ marriage. Its parent company admitted making a payment “in concert with” the Trump campaign to buy and suppress a story about Trump’s alleged affair with Playboy model Karen McDougal.
