Trump ‘Directly Involved’ In National Enquirer’s Blackmailing Of Jeff Bezos: Expert Reveals
Scott Galloway, a professor of marketing at NYU Stern School of Business and an Amazon expert, appeared on MSNBC after a bombshell report revealed that the pro-Trump publication National Enquirer allegedly blackmailed Amazon CEO, Jeff Bezos.
Galloway told MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle that Donald Trump was directly involved in the blackmail.
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 the 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 worse, 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 this is not the first time Trump has gotten involved with that tabloid to help him gain political leverage against his enemies.
“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 Bezos,” Tyler remarked.
