Elon Musk was outraged at the Democrat party. He used to be a supporter and a member of that party.
The CEO of Starlink, SpaceX, and Tesla gave an interview last week in which he discussed the unions “stranglehold”to the Democrat Party and called it “next-level insanity,” Fox News reported.
Elon Musk criticized the Democratic Party in the second part of a long-form interview with the Tesla Owners Silicon Valley club.
Musk took the opportunity to explain his feelings about the Democratic Party, their relationship to labor unions, and Tesla’s exclusion from a White House electric vehicles event because the company is not unionized.
Musk took particular issue with the Democratic Party’s strong relationship with union leadership.
“The general public is not aware of the degree to which unions control the Democratic Party. One does not need to speculate on this point,”He replied:
“Last year, Biden held an EV summit where Tesla was explicitly not allowed to come, but the [United Auto Workers] was. So, Tesla has made two-thirds of all the electric vehicles in the United States,” he said.
Tesla, owned by musk isn’t unionized. Musk says this is due to “negative unemployment”He lives in the Bay Area which allows his employees to explore other possibilities if they wish.
“So, deliberately excluding us from an EV summit at the White House — but including UAW — tells you everything you need to know,”The CEO stated:
“They have so much power over the White House that they can exclude Tesla from an EV summit — insane,” he said.
Biden praised Mary Barra, GM CEO at the summit for being the leader of the group. “EV revolution,”GM had only 26 electric vehicles in quarter one. “That’s some next-level insanity,”He replied:
He appeared on a podcast in May, making some of the same points as before and giving his opinions on the people he thinks are the best. “real president”Fox News reports that it is.
“The real president is whoever controls the teleprompter,”He replied: “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,”He said. This is an allusion to the 2004 movie in which Ron Burgundy (played by Will Ferrell) reads any text written on the Teleprompter.
He claimed that he has voted. “overwhelmingly for Democrats,” but he does not appear to be a fan of the current administration.
“This administration doesn’t seem to get a lot done,”He replied: “The Trump administration, leaving Trump aside, there were a lot of people in the administration who were effective at getting things done.”
According to him, he thinks the Democratic Party is “overly controlled by the unions and by the trial lawyers, particularly the class action lawyers.”he said, “When Democrats vote against,” “the interests of the people,”Because of trial lawyers and unions, it’s because Republicans are doing it. “it’s because of corporate evil and religious zealotry.”
“In the case of Biden, he is simply too much captured by the unions, which was not the case with Obama,”He said.
He also discussed comments by Jeff Bezos CEO of Amazon, who stated that the time President Biden spoke to corporations paying their salaries, he did so. “fair share”It was included in the taxes that combat inflation. “misdirection”
“I mean, the obvious reason for inflation is that the government printed a zillion amount of more money than it had, obviously,”It was the same argument that Republicans use.
“So it’s like the government can’t just, you know, issue checks far in excess of revenue without there being inflation, you know, velocity of money held constant,”He replied: “If the federal government writes checks, they never bounce. So that is effectively creation of more dollars. And if there are more dollars created, then the increase in the goods and services across the economy, then you have inflation, again, velocity of money held constant.”
“If the government could just issue massive amounts of money and deficits didn’t matter, then, well, why don’t we just make the deficit 100 times bigger? The answer is, you can’t because it will basically turn the dollar into something that is worthless,”He argued.
“Various countries have tried this experiment multiple times,”He replied: “Have you seen Venezuela? Like the poor, poor people of Venezuela are, you know, have been just run roughshod by their government.”
