Leslie Jones Asks Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos To Bail Out The US Postal Service: It’s Only $160 Billion, You Got That!
Comedienne Leslie Jones took to Instagram to ask Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos for a simple favor: to bail out the US Postal Service. Leslie Jones felt that as a loyal Amazon Prime member it was only right to ask the favor. She wrote,
“Hey @jeffbezos it’s your homegirl Leslie Jones um prime amazon member! Was wondering if you could do me a solid and bail out the post office! I mean you do use them right? And it would really piss Trump off. So how about it?! Its only 160B, you got that. #everyoneneedsthepostoffice #theyliterallydelivereverywhere”
According to the New York Times, the USPS could be shutting down later on in September if there is no government funding for the agency,
“Without a financial rescue from Congress, they have warned, an agency that normally runs without taxpayer funds could run out of cash as soon as late September, raising the specter of bankruptcy and an interruption in regular delivery for millions of Americans.”
According to Forbes, Jeff Bezos is worth around $143 billion dollars, but because of the current coronavirus pandemic, the demand for Amazon may increase in the next few months, possibly putting Bezos on the track to becoming a trillionaire in the near future.
