Trump Unbelievably Gloats About National Enquirer's Takedown Of 'Jeff Bozo's' Marriage

Trump has been particularly critical of The Washington Post in its coverage of his administration, and Jeff Bezos has often been the target of his retaliations on Twitter about what he considers to be unfair coverage.

When President Donald Trump called Amazon founder Jeff Bezos "Jeff Bozo" in a Sunday evening tweet, it quickly triggered more amazement at the extent to which he's changed the nature of presidential discourse.

US President Donald Trump has mocked Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos over his divorce in a tweet.

In a now-trending tweet, Trump sarcastically referred to the richest man alive as "Jeff Bozo", seemingly alluding to a fictional clown character, which was popular in the U.S. in 1960s.

In his tweet Trump seems to refer to reporting by the National Enquirer, a gossip tabloid which published pictures of Bezos with former TV news anchor Lauren Sanchez, and obtained texts sent from Bezos to Sanchez. Bezos and his wife, MacKenzie Bezos, announced last week that they are divorcing, and the National Enquirer has had a field day sensationalizing the story. Trump continued to knock Bezos' involvement in the paper with a wish "hopefully the paper will soon be placed in better & more responsible hands!" The National Enquirer - a tabloid newspaper whose parent company had a practice of buying the rights to negative stories about Trump with no intention of publishing them - exposed the relationship, and claimed to have followed the pair undercover for months.

Cohen and Pecker have each admitted to the scheme to have AMI pay $150,000 to Playboy model Karen McDougal who was shopping a story about an affair with Trump before the 2016 election.

The president did not mention those details in his tweet. The Associated Press reported in August that the Enquirer kept a safe of potentially damaging Trump stories.
