Actually, it was from when AMI first released some of their slime. My mistake.

I doubt that Trumpolini will resist the urge to wade in again.
I agree with you. I was surprised if he tweeted that fast.

He won't be able to resist taking a potshot at Beezos.

Keep thinking about whatever info Bezos turned up to scare AMI into doing something so monumentally stupid.

I hope Pecker is smart enough not to make any Amazon Prime orders for awhile. Just think of what Jeff might put in that order. :D

Dunno that's he's actually turned up anything but AMI obviously wants him not to. If he does, you'll read about in the WaPo.

Have many of you noticed the lack of concern trolls and "both siders" with this story?

Enquiring minds want to know. lol.

I think they'll be too busy trying to deny that the Enquirer ran that "catch and kill" program to suppress bad stories about Trump.

I'd say he knows exactly where AMI got the pics and texts.

why did they think that this was a good idea? Bezos has enough clout and cash, not to mention the WP, that he can literally destroy AMI if he choose to.

no matter what the buffoon in the WH says, the WP has way more credibility than the Inquirer could ever dream about.

I think they picked the wrong target for this type of attack.

^^^that's just too rich, hosted on a server owned by the company run by the person you tried to blackmail? this not going to end well for AMI.

Now if Amazon gives them the boot from AWS, the concern trolls will come running about how AMI's free speech is being violated by mean vindictive liberals.

Nope, they’ll run with Amazon was combing thru AMI’s private data to spy on AMI

They’ll give no fucks about the current FCC or roll backs on any privacy rules

It reminds of this scene from the Dark Knight



Minus the vigilante bit, probably.

I heard today JB was hacked and they threatened him with releasing nude selfies. His security claims the hack came from a federal government source.

Although his security can't provide proof, but that never stopped Trump before so let's just say it was someone in the Trump administration.

I’ll wait for real evidence about that


I will say from early on I stated it won’t be Russia that gets the President in trouble it will be him using a Government Agency to get dirt on his enemies.

Well, to combat this Bezos is admitting to sending dick pics to another woman while married. They didn't think he would be willing to do that, and that's where things have gone wrong.

The immunity deal Pecker/AMI got from SDNY over the Trump women payoffs was conditional on them not committing more crimes (of any sort). This is extremely embarrassing to SDNY. Do not publicly embarrass the most aggressive US attorney offices in the country. AMI is Fuuuuuuuuucked.
Has SDNY gotten all the evidence it needs for their case against Trump from Pecker already? I sure hope so.

I have absolutely zero desire to confirm, but word is Bezos has a prize hog. That might just earn you extra villain status from a 6'3" narcissistic snowflake sporting a mushroom cap. Just sayin.
