It’s almost as if big-time Democrats like Eric Schmidt, Bill Gates, Tim Cook and Jeff Bezos have never even heard of Barack Obama.
That was particularly obvious when Amazon CEO Bezos effectively slighted Obama’s record while appearing at Trump Tower.
As tech CEOs were going around the table and introducing themselves, Bezos said, “I’m super excited about the possibility this could be the innovation administration.”
Bezos’s praise was a stark departure from his comments in late October.
The Hill reported October 20:
Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos on Thursday blasted Republican nominee Donald Trump for hinting that he might not accept the result of the presidential election.
“Its not just going after the media, and threatening retribution for those who scrutinize him, it is also saying that he may not give a graceful concession speech,” Bezos said at Vanity Fair mangazine’s New Establishment Summit conference, according to Politico.
“That erodes our democracy around the edges.”
His comments come after Trump declined to say that he would accept the results of the election if they don’t go his way. …
TechCrunch reported that Bezos also criticized Trump for comments that he would jail Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton if elected.
“Saying he might lock up his opponent if he wins erodes democracy around the edges,” he said.
