    Remember he questioned the vaccine and the effectiveness of masks during the pandemic.

    All his views follow a very obvious pattern which isn’t surprising given where he gets his news. He pretends to be an independent thinker and then every view happens to miraculously fall on one side of the fence on all issues.

    Nope, don't remember.....because until he was everywhere on the news cause of the whole twitter thing, I didn't pay the slightest attention to him.

    I wouldn't be surprised if he's on the spectrum. He does seem to be way out there.

    Elon Musk made hurtful comment to fellow pupil, who left him hospitalised, father says | Business (June 2022)
    • Errol Musk credits his son's uber-macho "South African boy" upbringing with driving his ambition.
    • He says Elon once made a hurtful comment to a schoolmate about his father's suicide, and that the boy pushed his son down a staircase at school, injuring him so badly he had to be hospitalised.

    Well if McCarthy says people should stop... that means it must be the right thing to do and continue putting pressure on Musk.

    DeSantis is an idiot. Like all Republicans he respects the Constitution only so far as it works for him and no one else.

    Nice. Would explain his ridiculous attitude to what was Twitter's biggest customer. How many CEOs berate their customers?!

    Financial Times: “Breaking news: The EU has warned Elon Musk that Twitter could be banned in Europe unless the billionaire abides by its strict rules on content moderation https://on.ft.com/3AX3oUM

    Europe (other places outside of Europe as well) has stricter laws on hate speech, copyright, employment, libel, obscene images and videos, and others than the U.S. does and Musk has essentially said ‘**** you’ to all of them.

    This has been the case from the beginning. Everything Musk has said makes out that he treats Twitter as a US company rather than an international one having to abide by rules in many different jurisdictions. Some countries are not as easy to influence as others. I wonder what Twitter would be worth right now if it was still a listed company.
