MGM — Metro Goldwyn Mayer – is about to be purchased by Amazon founder Jeff Bezo.
However, it’s possible that this isn’t simply another random billionaire acquisition – there’s more to the story, and whispers are circulating that it involves President Trump…
You’ll understand why once I tell you what Jeff currently has in his possession. “The Apprentice” is a television show about a young man who. According to Mediaite, Amazon has officially agreed to buy film company Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM), and Stephen Colbert has some theories as to why Jeff Bezos chose to pay the steep $8.45 billion price tag.
“The latest Bezos news-os is that Amazon is nearing a deal to buy the Hollywood studio MGM,” on Tuesday, Colbert said in a Late Show. “That is such a billionaire move.”
Mike Hopkins, Senior Vice President of Prime Video and Amazon Studios, confirmed the acquisition on Wednesday morning, stating that Amazon now owns over 4,000 films and 17,000 television episodes.
“The real financial value behind this deal is the treasure trove of IP in the deep catalog that we plan to reimagine and develop together with MGM’s talented team,” in a statement he added. “It’s very exciting and provides so many opportunities for high-quality storytelling.”
Colbert was convinced that the deal would allow Bezos access to past episodes of The Apprentice, including the infamous tapes reportedly showing Donald Trump uttering racist remarks.
“So, why would one of the world’s richest men pay almost twice the value for a struggling movie studio that recently went bankrupt? Well, it could be that Jeff Bezos has an ongoing feud with the former president,” Colbert said. “Guess what? All the outtakes from The Apprentice are owned by MGM.”
“Holy mother of DVD extras! The private footage of a TV billionaire is going to belong to an actual billionaire,” he continued. “See, for years, there have been allegations about outtakes from The Apprentice where the Slob Father uses racist language, including by Tom Arnold, who says he saw it personally.”
Here’s what Stephen Colbert, a TDS loser, has to say about it.

The N-Word tape claims have been flying about for a long time, despite the fact that Mark Burnett, the creator of The Apprentice, has stated that he has never heard Trump utter anything like that.
Trump, of course, never stated that; it’s ludicrous.
Regardless, it’s a TDS urban tale that refuses to die.
However, even if Amazon owns MGM, it’s unclear whether they’ll have physical access to the records or the legal right to do anything with “The Apprentice” footage.
But you can bet they’ll attempt all they can to harm or embarrass President Trump if they can.
