Hey Donald Trump, Jeff Bezos, owner of the Washington Post and Amazon, is the richest man in the world. That should get under your skin! Let me just add, he did it without selling his soul to Russia.

Bloomberg:  “A surge in Amazon.com Inc. shares Thursday morning in advance of the online retailer’s earnings report has propelled founder Jeff Bezos past Bill Gates as the world’s richest person.”

“Shares of the online retailer rose 1.3 percent to $1,065.92 at 10:10 a.m. in New York, giving Bezos a net worth of $90.9 billion, versus $90.7 billion for Gates. If that holds through the 4 p.m. close, Bezos, 53, will leapfrog Gates, the Microsoft Corp. co-founder, on the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. Gates, 61, has held the top spot since May 2013.”

Reaction on Twitter is pure gold:
