After a week-long hiatus, Bill Maher returned to Real Time on Friday night. And in lieu of defending creeps, unleashing racist rants, and sharing the worst coronavirus takes, he took aim at the man who will likely be the first trillionaire: Jeff Bezos, Dear Leader of Amazon.
“In the online marketplace, Amazon has become the only game in town—and that was before an event happened that made everyone stay home and order everything online,” offered Maher.
Instead of exploring the firing of organizers—and planned racist smears—against factory workers speaking out against poor working conditions during the pandemic like his network-mate John Oliver, Maher cited Amazon’s rising stock price amid the COVID-19 crisis (approximately 25%) as well as their dominion over the product market.
