One of Trump's trashy friends acting trashy?! Wake me when there's actual news.

3 ( +9 / -6 )

This will be interesting. If true, it could be the end of the company - and another affirmation that those who travel with Trump get burned. I just dunno where MIB guys will get their news in that case.

I have huge admiration and respect for Bezos for coming forward and turning this on them.

Well I suppose they didn’t offer Bezos enough money if he didn’t accept

:-/

Trump's buddies at American Media Inc (AMI) are blackmailing, doing things the thug way just like he had Cohen, Manafort and all his other 'fixers' doing things for him.

Bezos owns the Washington Post, which often criticizes Trump's bund.

Bezos is also much richer than Trump, much richer than Trump can ever be even if Trump finds a way to sell off the Grand Canyon, Mt. Rainier and other national parks to build Trump resorts, even if he uses his time in office to get rights for him, Jared and Ivanka to sell the rights to the Trump brand name in China and elsewhere. Plus Trump probably still has outstanding 'loans' to pay off to oligarchs and other sharks abroad.

Pecker copped for immunity from the NY District Attorney's investigations but that may be invalided now - and he'll be under real legal jeapardy...and Donnie can't pardon him out of it.

We may be seeing what incriminating pictures he has of Donnie and Stormy, McDougal, and who knows many other hundreds of porn stars or hookers...poor Melania...

Doesn't extortion work the other way around?

so of course liberals excuse the behavior that caused this in the first place. Only reason anyone cares is to try to blame trump for this too.

Who has excused the behavior? Hint: Nobody.

Congratulations David Pecker!

You just violated the terms of your plea agreement with SDNY and can now be prosecuted for your prior bad acts, in addition to this case of criminal extortion.

Now, what other prominent Americans have you extorted, and at the request of . . .whom?

Anybody we know?

That's right - Bezos was playing around on his wife, oh my, that's ADULTERY - that's just inexcusable. No self-respecting, god-fearing, faithful husband would ever do that.

Just goes to show how depraved he is - the only thing that could make it worse was if the woman was a porn star or Playboy Bunny...

"intimate photos" he allegedly sent to his girlfriend

Uh oh. Big mistake, Jeff. ( Assuming the National Enquirer actually has these photos )

-4 ( +0 / -4 )

so what does what Bezos did have to do with Trump then?

Isnt he responsible for his own actions?

-2 ( +3 / -5 )

blame trump for this too.

Yes, and Bezos is at least 100x richer than Trump. Bezos will wipe out Trump if it turns to a legal battle (x100). I'm not judging Trump for the pee tapes, so why judge Bezos for anything like that?

Once again the herd ruminating on the same grass: Trump. Trump's behind everything bad.

The enquire has been around longet than Trump. They tried the same thing to Letterman back in the day. But he exposed the blackmail on his show. This is news, if only you coud put your thinking cap on. Blackmail and the media-- yeah you're right. No news here, keep looking for Trump, Trump, Trump Trump. Geeze.

What? Bezos cheated on his wife? No elected official should be allowed to continue on in their position after doing such a sleezy, POS thing like that.

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

Trashy? You mean Bezos cheating on his wife or weaponizing his paper to go against Trump?

-4 ( +0 / -4 )

You mean Bezos cheating on his wife 

Lol! Trumpsters now claiming cheating on your wife is trashy. Remind me how many times has Donny cheated on his wives? I guess that wasn't trashy?

weaponizing his paper to go against Trump?

Word! We should make it illegal for media to investigate or criticize Trump!
