Robert Reich is utterly beside himself for making one of the worst mistakes a human being can make:
I hate Amazon and try not to order through it. But slipped up, and ordered for my wife Remonte Women’s Low-Top Sneakers. Not only did they never arrive, but now I can't get a refund. I'm subsidizing Bezos's $175,000,000,000 fortune for nothing. Never again.

Emphasis on “never.” Can we get the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s ruling on this one?
This totally happened. https://t.co/x9I4C2veMM

As a long-time customer of Amazon, I think you're lying.

I’ll take “things that never happened” for $1000, Alex

This is one of the more preposterous things I’ve ever read.

The thing is, even if it did happen, Reich still looks ridiculous.
Veracity concerns aside, he seems to imply that the "subsidy" would be worth it if the shoes had arrived. https://t.co/nsTuZ7qzlf

Note his use of "ordered for my wife's" instead of "ordered my wife's." It's subtle but if you have a good nose, you might be able to pick up a distinct whiff of aristocratic elitism. https://t.co/p2vtmFAJoB

Oh, there’s more than just a whiff; it positively reeks of aristocratic elitism. You’d be hard-pressed to find a more out-of-touch limousine liberal than Robert Reich. And if anyone’s capable of not being able to figure out what millions of Amazon users have been able to figure out, it’s him.
He’s either lying or he’s incredibly incompetent because the Amazon refund/return process is easier than putting on slippers. https://t.co/Fnx4A33s1K

I think he's lying and incompetent. Amazon is one of the easiest places to deal with at the customer service level. Tracking items in the shipping pipeline is a cinch too. https://t.co/fIPAzYWFX7

“I slipped up and went to Amazon and then couldn’t get a refund from the site w the easiest, most generous return policy on the internet” makes you either entirely incompetent, untruthful, or both. It amazes me that this guy has made millions as a “credible expert”. https://t.co/cL81dRFZV0

One thing is most definitely true: Robert Reich is not a credible person.
