Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, ripped President Joe Biden in a podcast on Monday and told the audience who he believes the “real president” is and then compared Biden to Ron Burgundy from the movie “Anchorman” starring Will Ferrel.
“The real president is whoever controls the teleprompter,” Musk said. “The path to power is the path to the teleprompter.” Here’s the clip below.
Musk also told the Podcast that he previously voted “overwhelmingly for Democrats.” He has not been a fan of the recent administration and has made that clear. Watch the full video below.
“I do feel like if somebody were to accidentally lean on the teleprompter, it’s going to be like Anchorman,” he continued.
Here’s the clip from Anchorman that you can watch below.
When talking about the Biden administration, he said, “This administration doesn’t seem to get a lot done,” he said. “The Trump administration, leaving Trump aside, there were a lot of people in the administration who were effective at getting things done.”
Musk then called the Democrat party the party of the “unions and the trial lawyers, particularly the class action lawyers” and that when they go against the interests of their voters, it’s because of those interests.
He didn’t spare the rod for Republicans either. He said they were ruled by “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,” Musk continued.
When discussing inflation, Musk said that “the obvious reason for inflation is that the government printed a zillion amount of more money than it had.”
“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 argued. “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 said. “Various countries have tried this experiment multiple times,” he said. “Have you seen Venezuela? Like the poor, poor people of Venezuela are, you know, have been just run roughshod by their government.”
Do you think Musk is right about Biden: that he’s just a talking suit?
