    Bezos is not the only person The National Enquirer attacked. They also went all in on Hillary Clinton. I'm sure it's coincidence that trump attacks both Clinton and Bezos regularly.

    35 ways the National Enquirer’s publisher boosted Donald Trump

    Prosecutors say David Pecker was instrumental in burying the storiesof two women who say they had affairs with Donald Trump before the 2016 election. The CEO of AMI, publisher of the National Enquirer and Globe supermarket tabloids, also did a great service for Trump by printing wild stories about his opponents—while spiking a few about him.

    Here’s a look at how 35 covers built an over-the-top narrative of the dangers of a Hillary Clinton presidency and the benefits of a Trump one. Could decent Americans vote for a lying, dying, criminally minded candidate? Enquiring minds in checkout aisles across the US were told there was little reason to doubt Trump was the right choice.

    They didn’t even have to buy a single copy to get the message.

    Only makes sense that Trump would be at war with the NYTimes and WashPost, but tight with National Enquirer

    I’d like to apologize to the Deplorables. I thought you were hoodwinked by Trump alone. I was wrong. You were hoodwinked by Trump with a National Enquirer assist. Could happen to anybody...who is uninformed.

    That would explain why Cruz and Lindsey Graham both went from despising Trump to kissing his ass almost overnight. Who knows what dirt Trump's cronies at the Enquirer had on them.

    Somebody buys the National Enquirer, reads it and believes it. Otherwise it would be out of business. It caters to people whose views are validated by it’s stories. The champions of Donald Trump.

    She won’t sleep with him. Preferably to her, not even in the same house.

    So every “so called” legitimate newspaper in the country, plus every television news outlet except one are overwhelmingly biased toward Hillary and the Democrats, and you guys have the stones to complain about the National Enquirer? REALLY???

    Now if the Enquuirer had headlined a story about Hillary getting a golden shower from a male prostitue that came from a dossier paid for by Trump I would feel sorry for you guys.

    Of course, not even a male prostitute would have sex with Hillary so the story would not have had legitimacy anyway.

    There is not enough beer in the keg nor money in the bank to get me to service that. I mean, I would usually take one for the team, but even I have my standards (low they may be). ;)

    Don’t worry about your teammates, I don’t think that there is a team in any sport, anywhere that would expect one of their own to take that one for them.

    There is no defense of the National Enquirer. My point is that the vast majority of mainstream “journalists” aren’t really any better, or even any different for that matter.
