Jeff Bezos: White House trying to distract from inflation because they know it ‘hurts the neediest the most'

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

New York Times podcast host Kara Swisher responded to Bezos’ thread, asking, “What is in mogul drinking water these days?” in an apparent reference to Elon Musk’s Twitter activity.

Peter Kalmus, a climate scientist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, said Bezos was “killing the planet” in an expletive-ridden rant. 

“You aren’t a ‘wealthy person’ you have hoarded and enclosed literally astronomical sums on the backs of the people and the groaning Earth, least you can do is pay taxes and let the workers breathe,” Kalmus continued. 

Nina Turner, a former Ohio state senator, criticized Bezos as well. 

“Amazon just secured a $ 10 billion federal contract—money straight from taxpayers—and @JeffBezos *still* has the nerve to tweet this,” she wrote. “With the union busting Amazon is partaking in, they shouldn’t have gotten the contract to begin with.”
