    Elon Musk, co-founder and chief executive officer of Tesla Motors.Yuriko Nakao | Bloomberg | Getty Images Tesla CEO Elon Musk on Friday blasted the Biden administration and Democrats on Twitter, as the world's richest man doubled down on his vow to vote for Republicans. Musk in a tweet accused the Biden administration of doing "everything it can to sideline" and ignore Tesla, despite its dominance in the electric vehicle industry. Musk, who is making an increasingly fraught attempt to buy Twitter for $44 billion, suggested Thursday that Democrats would target him with a smear campaign after he announced that he would vote for GOP candidates. "In the past I voted Democrat, because they were (mostly) the kindness party. But they have become the party of division & hate, so I can no longer support them and will vote Republican," Musk tweeted Thursday. "Now, watch their dirty tricks campaign against me unfold …," he wrote, ending the tweet with a "popcorn" emoji. Hours later Thursday, Business Insider published a bombshell report detailing allegations that Musk exposed his genitals to a private...
    Tesla CEO and potential future Twitter owner Elon Musk targeted the Democratic Party and President Joe Biden during a podcast interview this week in which he also revealed he’s voted “overwhelmingly for Democrats” in the past. The current administration, Musk argued on the All-In Podcast, is ignoring issues like inflation and he had particular criticism for Biden. “It’s hard to tell what Biden’s doing, to be totally frank. The real president is whoever controls the teleprompter,” Musk said. Earning some laughter from the audience, Musk accused the 79-year-old Biden of relying to much on teleprompters and those around him, even comparing him at one point to the Will Ferrell character Ron Burgundy from the Anchorman films. “The path to power is the path to the teleprompter … I do feel like if someone were to accidentally lean on the teleprompter, it’s going to be like Anchorman. It’s going to be like, ‘UUASDF123’ type of thing,” Musk said, laughing himself. In 2004’s Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, the reporter finds his career in ruins in the road after...
    Elon Musk arrives for the 2022 Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 2, 2022, in New York.Angela Weiss | AFP | Getty Images Tesla CEO Elon Musk blasted Joe Biden during an interview this week, saying the president is someone who just reads a teleprompter and that his administration has failed to get much done. "It's hard to tell what Biden is doing to be totally frank," Musk said on a podcast recorded Monday evening during the All-In Summit with Chamath Palihapitiya, Jason Calacanis, David Sacks and David Friedberg. "The real president is whoever controls the teleprompter. The path to power is the path to the teleprompter. I do feel like if somebody were to accidentally lean on the teleprompter, it's going to be like Anchorman," Musk added, referring to the 2004 film about a news anchor who will read anything written on the teleprompter even if it ruins his career. Musk, who says he has overwhelmingly voted for Democrats, has repeatedly criticized the president. He has seemed to be irritated by the fact that Biden...
    Elon Musk has blasted America's poor work ethic and praised toiling Chinese staff who stay at the factory 'burning the 3am oil'. The Tesla CEO, who once slept on his Fremont factory floor during production of the company's Model 3 car, said Americans are 'trying to avoid going to work at all' compared to their Chinese counterparts. Speaking in an interview with the Financial Times, he said: 'I think there will be some very strong companies coming out of China.  'There's just a lot of super talented and hardworking people in China that strongly believe in manufacturing.  'And they won't just be burning the midnight oil. They'll be burning the 3am oil. So they won't even leave the factory type of thing.  'Whereas in America, people are trying to avoid going to work at all.'

    SEE IT: Musk blasts ‘inaccurate, slanderous’ media with meme tweet
    Jimmy Kimmel went after Elon Musk for citing “morality” as a reason to get former President Donald Trump back on Twitter. “I think it was a morally bad decision to be clear and foolish in the extreme,” Musk said of Trump’s Twitter ban on Tuesday. Musk, who is currently buying Twitter,  then confirmed that he would “reverse the perma-ban” if the deal with the platform goes through. Kimmel addressed Musk’s remarks after highlighting the current shortage in baby formula across the United States. “Speaking of babies, Elon Musk says that if his deal to buy Twitter goes through, he will reverse the ban on our infant former president, Donald Trump,” Kimmel cracked on Tuesday night. “Oh good,” Kimmel continued. “We have the part-time DJ who makes flamethrowers and cars that fart in charge of morality now. The guy who named his kids Roman numerals will make sure they don’t do anything foolish!” The host went on to joke that Trump would need to get a new phone if he were to get back on Twitter, referring to the fact that the former president is being...
    Patrick Pleul/Getty Images Twitter ranged from lament to celebration in response to Elon Musk’s suggestion that, were he to complete the acquisition of Twitter, he would allow former President Donald Trump back onto the platform. “I think it was a morally bad decision to be clear and foolish in the extreme,” said Musk at the Financial Times’ Future of the Car event. “I do think it was not correct to ban Donald Trump. I think that was a mistake. Because it alienated a large part of the country and did not ultimately result in Donald Trump not having a voice,” he added. “I guess the answer is I would reverse the perma-ban.” Trump was banned from the platform two days after the Jan. 6 attack at the U.S. Capitol. At the time, Twitter explained that Trump was banned for inciting the violence of that day in the weeks preceding it. Still, the former president has said that even if he were allowed back on Twitter, he would not return and would instead remain on his own platform, TRUTH Social. Many on...

    Weeks before the 2020 presidential election, Twitter banned the New York Post for 16 days for sharing damning accusations about an abandoned laptop owned by Hunter Biden and also censored the story. Last month, the New York Times and Washington Post finally got around to authenticating the laptop emails. Earlier this month, Maher accused left-wing media outlets of burying the Hunter Biden laptop story. "It looks like the left-wing media just buried the story because it wasn't part of their narrative and that's why people don't trust the media," Maher explained. Christian satire website The Babylon Bee shared a video of a Twitter employee being too sensitive about Musk purchasing the social media platform. Twitter Employee Undergoes Therapy Over Elon Musk Takeover youtu.be Twitter quickly and unironically slapped a warning on the video that claimed the comedic clip "might have sensitive content." “Our video mocking Twitter employees for being too sensitive was flagged by Twitter for sensitive content,” Babylon Bee editor-in-chief Kyle Mann wrote.

    Elon Musk has described Twitter's decision to remove The New York Post's stories about Hunter Biden's laptop as 'incredibly inappropriate', delivering a scathing rebuke to the social media company's lawyer who was instrumental in the decision. Vijaya Gadde, 48, broke down in tears on Monday, Politico reported, as she briefed her team via videolink on the future of the company under Musk, following his $44 billion deal to takeover the company. Gadde, chief legal officer and senior counsel for Twitter, was described by Politico as Twitter's 'moral authority'. She was pivotal in the decision to ban Donald Trump from the platform for inciting unrest, and also played a key role in the decision to remove The New York Post's account when they tweeted their reporting into Hunter Biden's laptop. Twitter initially froze the New York Post's main account after it published the story and demanded it delete tweets linking to the Biden articles. It justified the ban by citing a prohibition of distributing hacked material, before backing down when the story was proven to be legitimate.  Saagar Enjeti, host of...
    The View’s Sunny Hostin on Tuesday blasted Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s planned purchase of Twitter, saying that “it’s about free speech of straight white men.” Twitter announced on Monday that Musk acquired the social media platform for almost $44 billion. During a discussion on Tuesday’s The View about the acquisition, Hostin said: I think Twitter can be a really horrible place, and I think people are excited because he is sort of going to unleash the trolls, right? I think he is saying you get to say whatever you want. I’m going to take away the guardrails. And for me, that is something that is a bit scary. And I think it’s going to be scary to a lot of women because there have been some surveys done and 38 percent of women around the world have said that they have been on the receiving end of a lot of abuse on Twitter. Eighty-five percent of women have said they have seen the abuse. What’s interesting to me about Twitter is only 22 percent of adults are on Twitter in...
    The co-founder of Twitter launched a searing attack on the media on Monday night, taking a broad swipe at news networks and accusing them of 'sowing doubt to promote white supremacy and get engagement'. The comments come just one day after condemning Twitter's board - of which he is a member - for being preoccupied with 'plots and coups' amid Elon Musk's attempt to takeover the company Dorsey, who stepped down as CEO of Twitter in November, lashed out at CNN and then Fox. The online rant began when CNN's media correspondent, Brian Stelter, tweeted a link to an op-ed accusing Fox's Tucker Carlson of 'selling doubt', Dorsey replied: 'And you all are selling hope?' Newsmax's Alex Salvi then jumped in, saying that Dorsey was defending the controversial Fox anchor. 'Not defending a thing,' Dorsey replied. 'Holding up a mirror.' Former CEO Jack Dorsey, pictured in June at a Bitcoin conference, on Monday night took aim at the media, criticizing CNN in particular Ellen Pao, a venture capitalist, then chimed in, saying: 'I thought his point was that...
    APPLE has hit out at Facebook-owner Meta for its plan to take a huge chunk of earnings made in the metaverse. Mark Zuckerberg's tech empire will grab a massive 47.5 per cent of sales made in its Horizon Worlds platform, while the rest will go to the user. 2Mark Zuckerberg wants almost 50 per cent from creatorsCredit: Meta Now Apple has joined the wave of fury, calling the move "hypocrisy". That's because Meta has previously been critical of the iPhone maker's own commission fees. "Meta has repeatedly taken aim at Apple for charging developers a 30% commission for in-app purchases in the App Store — and have used small businesses and creators as a scapegoat at every turn," Apple rep Fred Sainz told MarketWatch. "Now — Meta seeks to charge those same creators significantly more than any other platform. "[Meta’s] announcement lays bare Meta’s hypocrisy. "It goes to show that while they seek to use Apple’s platform for free, they happily take from the creators and small businesses that use their own." The social networking giant wants a 30% hardware platform fee if you're selling virtual...
    Elon Musk was quick to point out that President Joe Biden ignored Tesla’s contributions to electric vehicle ventures in favor of Ford and GM’s during Tuesday’s State of the Union address. As his speech wrapped up, Biden’s Twitter account reiterated Ford and GM’s investments of $11 billion and $7 billion, respectively, along with Ford’s 11,000 jobs and GM’s 4,000 jobs created as a result. Within an hour, Musk replied with how Tesla is outperforming their contributions. “Tesla has created over 50,000 US jobs building electric vehicles & is investing more than double GM and Ford combined,” Musk tweeted in response. Musk added, “fyi to person controlling this twitter.” Tesla has created over 50,000 US jobs building electric vehicles & is investing more than double GM + Ford combined[fyi to person controlling this twitter]— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) March 2, 2022 ELON MUSK RESTORES INTERNET TO UKRAINE WITH SPACEX’S STARLINK SATELLITE In August, the Tesla CEO was not invited to Biden’s electric vehicle summit.

    NBA star and freedom-fighter Enes Kanter Freedom blasted entrepreneur Elon Musk for ignoring China’s human rights abuses and opening a Tesla showroom near the region in China where the communists operate forced labor camps. Shame on @elonmusk for supporting the Genocide,” the player tweeted on Thursday. “Shortly after the U.S passes the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act-aimed at stopping slave labor, Elon Musk turns a blind eye to the Cultish Chinese Communist Party’s abuses & has opened a @tesla showroom in #Xinjiang.” “What a parasite,” Freedom concluded.

    MSNBC host Joe Scarborough criticized Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and Tesla CEO Elon Musk during Thursday’s segment of “Morning Joe.” Scarborough compared former oil tycoon John Rockefeller to Zuckerberg and Musk, calling the tech executives “robber barons.” “I don’t know that anybody since John Rockefeller has had as unfeathered power as Mark Zuckerberg has right now where no one stands up to him inside his company, no one stands up to him on the board, no one stands up to him in Congress, no one stands up to him at the White House, no one really stands up to him in the media,” the former congressman said. (RELATED: Resurfaced Clip Shows MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough Joking With Don Imus About Dead Intern) “He is a robber baron. Elon Musk is a robber baron. These people are robber barons,” Scarborough proclaimed. WATCH:  Scarborough also denounced the Reagan-era tax cuts that he said he “supported through the ’80s and ’90s” as well as the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Acts, saying the bill “created the greatest income redistribution in the history of the...
    Tesla founder Elon Musk tore into Sen. Elizabeth Warren after she suggested he was “freeloading” and not paying his fair share of taxes. Musk, the world’s wealthiest individual, was named Time magazine’s "Person of the Year" this week. Warren, who has long been a proponent of the rich paying more taxes, tweeted out a story about the matter and used it to advocate for higher taxes. “Let’s change the rigged tax code so The Person of the Year will actually pay taxes and stop freeloading off everyone else,” the Massachusetts Democrat said. MUSK INVOKES MILTON FRIEDMAN IN CONDEMNATION OF BIDEN SPENDING BILL ‘TRICKERY’ Musk, who is worth more than $250 billion and is known for his Twitter antics, responded by posting a news article about her falsely claiming to be Native American. Warren had asserted Native American heritage in the past, but a DNA test revealed that she only had a minuscule amount of that ancestry. “You remind me of when I was a kid and my friend’s angry Mom would just randomly yell...
    On Thanksgiving Eve, Stephen Colbert dedicated a chunk of his Late Show monologue to a certain tax-avoiding billionaire, Elon Musk—by all accounts the richest man in the world. “For some reason, there’s always lots of billionaire news,” offered Colbert. “I’ll give you the latest in tonight’s installment of my long-running segment: ‘Rich people, they’re just not like us. Us pay taxes.’” With that, Colbert dug in, addressing Musk’s little Twitter feud with Bernie Sanders over the Vermont senator’s suggestion that Musk pay his fair share in taxes. “First up: SpaceX founder Elon Musk… has been a little prickly ever since Democrats suggested the wealthy pay any taxes,” explained Colbert. “For instance, recently Bernie Sanders tweeted, ‘We must demand that the extremely wealthy pay their fair share. Period.’ To which Musk replied, ‘I keep forgetting that you’re still alive.’” It was a bizarre reply, all thinks considered. “Hey, buddy: You cannot talk to Bernie like that,” Colbert shot back. Then, he did his best Bernie Sanders impression: “You better watch your mouth, space boy! I’m from Brooklyn, the...
    United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres blasted private space flights as indicative of global wealth inequality in a grim opening speech to the General Assembly on Tuesday. “Billionaires joyride to space while millions go hungry on Earth,” Guterres said . BIDEN APPEALS TO UN TO TEAM UP ON PANDEMIC AND CLIMATE RESPONSES AFTER DIPLOMATIC FLAPS Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, and English billionaire Richard Branson took short rocket trips in July, and on Saturday billionaire businessman Jared Isaacman returned from three days in orbit with the first all-private space crew, completing a mission operated by Elon Musk's SpaceX and financed by Isaacman. Guterres chided these billionaires as he warned of a “great cascade” of crises that face the world, such as the coronavirus pandemic, unrest in the Middle East, climate change, and healthcare disparities. "I am here to sound the alarm: The world must wake up. We are on the edge of an abyss — and moving in the wrong direction,” he said. “Our world has never been more threatened. Or more...
