The main news circulating SpaceX CEO Elon Musk over the last few weeks was his efforts to acquire Twitter for over $40 billion. While the mainstream media has waged a war against the billionaire, admitting that one person controlling all of Twitter could be dangerous, Musk has continued to focus on his efforts to protect free speech. It should also be noted that the media hasn’t remotely attacked Mark Zuckerberg and his influence over Facebook and Instagram. Still, seeming to not worry about the media and speaking his mind, Musk recently admitted that the person really controlling President Joe Biden is not some NWO, or group of elitists, but the person running the teleprompter.
Appearing on a podcast that was recorded on Monday, Musk, as can be seen in the video below, explained, “It’s hard to tell what Biden is doing to be totally frank. 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 didn’t stop there as he also presented the difference between the Biden administration and the former Trump administration. “This administration, it doesn’t seem to get a lot done. The Trump administration, leaving Trump aside, there were a lot of people in the administration who were effective at getting things done. This administration seems to not have the drive to just get s— done. That’s my impression.”
Objective reporting for the educated American.
It wasn’t only Musk who sought to criticize the Biden administration, as Amazon founder Jeff Bezos placed the blame for rising inflation at the feet of President Biden. For some time now, Biden has pushed several narratives suggesting the food shortage crisis, the baby formula crisis, inflation crisis, and even soaring gas prices were not his fault.
As for the current status of Musk buying Twitter, it appears the billionaire might be having cold feet as the company expressed a situation surrounding the platform being full of bot accounts. While Twitter only suggested five percent were bots, Musk thought the number was more around 20%.
