An amazingly convincing version of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos by Steve Carell threw serious shade on President Donald Trump in a sly sketch on Saturday Night Live.
Carells Bezos managed to needle Trump that he was 100 times richer, smarter and funnier as he referred to Amazons recent decision to set up new dual headquarters in Queens and Arlington, Virginia.
Some folks have speculated that I was somehow trolling President Trump by building one headquarters in his hometown of Queens and the other [near] his current residence of Washington, D.C., thereby overshadowing or humiliating him. But thats simply not true, Carells Bezos calmly explained.
He then displayed several humiliating Trump headlines in his Washington Post — and announced his companys latest post-office-free innovation: Amazon Caravan.

Any package going to any Trump building will get delivered by hundreds of Honduran and Mexican immigrants and Ill pick up the bill, he explained, unless you order [Trumps book] The Art of the Deal, because that costs more to ship, because its heavier. I guess thats the only book with four Chapter 11s.
One last twist: The Virginia location will be close enough to Arlington National Cemetery so the company can pay our respects to fallen veterans — even when its raining outside.
Carell’s Bezos spent the rest of the message mocking the President who had waged a war on Amazon and its CEO on Twitter. He denied that he’d chosen Trump’s his old hometown of Queens and a location close to his current Washington, D.C. home for the new headquarters as a way of trolling the President.
