Jeff Bezos’ Feud Escalates Against Joe Biden and the White House

OPINION | Views expressed in this article do not necessarily reflect those held by Sarah Palin.

We recently saw Jeff Bezos, Amazon CEO and the second richest man in the world, criticize Joe Biden and the Democrats over their latest solution for inflation.

Biden said, “You want to bring down inflation? Let’s make sure the wealthiest corporations pay their fair share.”

Bezos shot back by mocking Biden’s new propaganda department called the “Disinformation Board,” sometimes referred to as the ministry of truth. Bezos said, “The newly created Disinformation Board should review this tweet, or maybe they need to form a new Non Sequitur Board instead. Raising corp taxes is fine to discuss. Taming inflation is critical to discuss. Mushing them together is just misdirection.”

This didn’t sit well with the White House, which issued a statement on the situation. Biden’s administration says it’s “unsurprising” that Bezos doesn’t think raising taxes will reduce inflation because he’s one of the wealthiest individuals on Earth. They also note that Biden recently met with “labor organizers, including Amazon employees.”

Doubling-down, Bezos responded, “Look, a squirrel! This is the White House’s statement about my recent tweets. They understandably want to muddy the topic.”

He continued, “They know inflation hurts the neediest the most. But unions aren’t causing inflation and neither are wealthy people. Remember the Administration tried their best to add another $3.5 TRILLION to federal spending. They failed, but if they had succeeded, inflation would be even higher than it is today, and inflation today is at a 40 year high.”

Bezos, who serves as Amazon CEO and owns the Washington Post, has faced criticism for failing to ensure the Post does its job by reporting on Joe Biden’s failures in office.

Many Twitter users expressed shock that Bezos, the man who owns one of the most prominent left-leaning newspapers in the world, would call out Biden in such strong terms.

Some simply agreed with his statement, others expressed frustration that the owner of The Post, a paper that has been accused of protecting Democrats – especially Biden – is only now speaking out against Democrat Party policy.

“I don’t like agreeing with you,” replied ACT for America founder Brigitte Gabriel.

“Jeff is just p-ssed that the government Disinformation Board is taking work from the newspaper he owns. That’s the Post’s job,” tweeted conservative commentator David Reaboi, mocking Bezos’ paper as the government’s propaganda outlet.

National Republican Senatorial Committee digital deputy director Mike Hahn asked, “Don’t you own a major newspaper? What if…and hear me out…the Washington Post started to hold this White House accountable?”

Tennessee congressional candidate Robby Starbuck replied to Bezos’ tweet, writing, “Maybe that newspaper you own could stop being a propaganda paper for the ruling Democrat regime and hold them accountable for their lies?”

Conservative YouTuber Viva Frei simply remarked, “The revolution devours its own.”

“Dang they lost Jeff,” tweeted Newsbusters contributing writer Autumn Johnson.
