Steve Jobs’ widow Laurene Powell travels to Riviera as ‘Atlantic’ appeals to her for kindness after pandemic

Photos emerged on Tuesday of billionaire Steve Jobs’ widow Laurene Powell sunbathing with friends on her 260-foot luxury yacht Aphrodite sailing the waters of the Mediterranean in the south of France.

The footage was shot in 2020 at the height of the coronavirus pandemic, while the rest of the world shut down and society was torn apart by government edicts.

Powell’s $110 million superyacht was originally commissioned by her late husband Steve Jobs in 2008, but he died of cancer before it was completed. It stands next to her two private jets as a favorite form of transportation away from the madding crowds.

The 56-year-old California-based billionaire entrepreneur and philanthropist likes to share it with family and friends among the elite who call Cannes’ sunny south coast home for the holidays.

Her vacation trip, as reported by the Daily Mailhe comes as a far leftist Atlantic, a publication he has increasingly invested in and controlled since 2017, called for a coronavirus pandemic “amnesty” because “we need to forgive each other for what we did and said when we were in the dark about COVID.”

As Breitbart News outlined, Jobs’ post previously said the unvaccinated should “look down on their peer group” and “might even be happy to have an excuse to protect themselves,” and the Biden administration should force the unvaccinated to give up “certain social benefits.” to exercise their individuality and freedom of choice.

But Jobs, “one of the world’s most important philanthropists,” enjoys many benefits that her wealth produces: namely, she has the freedom of choice to fly her private jets wherever and whenever she wants.

“If you’re subjected to intense screening beforehand,” Jobs’ post last year continued, “TSA PreCheck lets you get through security without taking off your shoes. a no-fly list keeps some people off the plane altogether.”

Jobs’ wealth and inferred status are detailed in the book by Breitbart News editor Alex Marlow. Breaking the News: Exposing the collusion and secret corruption of the mediawhich “exposes the hidden connections between the establishment media and the activist left.”

As Marlow states, Jobs’ past is privileged. He attended the Wharton School of Finance at the University of Pennsylvania and Stanford University and then worked for Merrill Lynch and Goldman Sachs.

Powell “married well and inherited a lot of money and her fortune is tied up in some of the biggest companies in the world,” Marlowe continues. “She is the Foundation.”

“The decline of print and independent media has created an opportunity for partisan partisans to launder their political activism through established media brands. The Courier seemingly shows how far this exploitation has gone,” concludes Marlow.

Now that the coronavirus has passed as a public issue of widespread concern, Powell is backing away from talk of harsh penalties for those who choose not to get vaccinated and is calling for global understanding.

The Atlantic The track is like a fanfare for the common man (and woman) with its heartfelt plea, “We must put these struggles aside and declare a pandemic amnesty. We can leave out the willful purveyors of real misinformation while condoning the tough calls people had no choice but to make with imperfect knowledge.”

Peace, love and understanding.
