During a press conference following his flight into space, Amazon billionaire Jeff Bezos said that he would give $100 million each to Van Jones and to humanitarian José Andrés as part of a new Courage and Civility Award.
The award is meant for the recipient to give to causes of their choice. In accepting the award, Jones said, “I appreciate you [Jeff Bezos] for lifting the ceiling off of people’s dreams.”
Bezos aired a video during the press conference that said Jones brought together “climate justice and racial justice.”
Jones was a 9/11 truther and previously called Republicans “a**holes,” but Bezos praised him as a uniter. What a joke.
