    yep

    Ex-National Enquirer editor: David Pecker used Bezos story for 'kissing and making up' with Trump

    This fawning over MBS is absurd, especially after he (almost certainly) had Kashoggi killed.

    . You see equality between criminals committing extortion and the victim of the crime?

    It's the Enquirer, the epitome of fake news and sleaze, no one should be surprised.
    Of course, trump thinks they deserved a Pulitzer. Just bizzare times.

    Bezos should be arrested for using the word complexifier (not once but twice).

    You don't like corporate buzzwords? Let's put a pin in that, and circle back to it when we have more more cycles to spend on it.

    Complexifier irks me more than others, especially in that particular situation. Just write "it complicates things" :)

    Are you serious, dude?

    I don't necessarily know exactly what my end state desired is when I'm turning low steel into high steel in the gym. But I'm pretty certain it isn't this:

    Not everybody's goal is to look like Ronnie Coleman. Bezos is in way better shape than he used to be. You ever see trump wearing athletic clothes? No? There's a reason.

    How did Trump work his way into this? Other than he’s also a man who deceived himself that the hot girl on his arm is there for some reason other than the money, I don’t see a connection.

    P.S. if you want me to take a hard look at Bezos, physical specimen that he is and all, best not to put a picture of his girlfriend right next to him. Goodness, that’s what right looks like ...

    Because trump is an obese narcissist - the guy lied about his height and weight just so he wouldn't be classified as obese. trump would be devastated if a topless picture of him was ever released by the National Enquirer. Bezos on the other hand is probably in the best shape of his life, making the threat of those pictures far less effective.

    Edit: fixed the picture for you. btw - Rampage released in April 2018.

    I won’t argue the truth of any of that about the President, just the relevance of it to this discussion. Surely, not every single thing is about Trump? I mean, someone complains about how long instant-replay reviews are, and it’s “well, with people out there like Trump we must be sure!”

    Maybe you're right and there's no connection between Pecker, trump's good friend, extorting Bezos, trump's enemy, but I wouldn't bet on it.

    Separate “connection” from the one you brought up. But I’m sure you already knew that.

    We'll all probably get to see how it's all connected. The National Enquirer is picking a fight with a man who literally has unlimited resources at his command.
