Bezos Offers To Send a Trash-talking Trump into Space

One Way or Round Trip?

In what, in retrospect, were some of his less controversial comments Monday, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump slammed Jeff Bezos, owner of the Washington Post.

“The @washingtonpost, which loses a fortune, is owned by @JeffBezos for purposes of keeping taxes down at his no profit company, @amazon,” Trump said in one tweet Monday morning, part of a series critical of the newspaper and its owner.

Late Monday, Bezos responded on Twitter in his role as founder of space transportation company Blue Origin:

“Finally trashed by @realDonaldTrump. Will still reserve him a seat on the Blue Origin rocket. 

Bezos included a link to the video of last month’s New Shepard test flight in Texas.

Bezos didn’t disclose if he would provide a flight to Trump for free or expected the fellow billionaire to pay the as-yet-undisclosed ticket price for a suborbital flight.
