Steve Jobs: Distorts reality? Used drugs? Yeah, we knew that.
Still, it’s always interesting to read FBI files on famous people. In this instance, the feds released a decades-old file on the Apple co-founder. According to the files, the FBI interviewed Jobs and people who knew him as part of a background check for a possible appointment by former President George H. W. Bush.
One part of the report stated:
Several individuals questioned Mr. Jobs’ honesty stating that Mr. Jobs will twist the truth and distort reality in order to achieve his goals.
Meaning … he’s perfect for the job? No joke, because later in the report:
[BLANKED OUT] concluded the interview by stating that even though he does not consider Mr. Jobs to be a friend, he (Mr. Jobs) possesses the qualities to assume a high level political position. It was [BLANKED OUT] opinion that honesty and integrity are not required qualities to hold such a position. [BLANKED OUT] recommended him for a position of trust and confidence with the Government.
