Liberal pundits will find any way to tie things back to Donald Trump. After multi-billionaire Elon Musk purchased Twitter for $44 billion MSNBC host Ari Melber reacted to Twitter’s purchase by telling viewers that they should be paying attention to Twitter since “the world’s richest person, who is very good at accumulating wealth and power, thinks this is worth spending ten of billions of dollars on because, frankly, he thinks it’s that valuable and he thinks it may help him.”
The Daily Wire reports:
“Trump, by the way today is claiming that he won’t even return to Twitter if the ban were lifted but few take what Donald Trump says seriously on that score,” said Melber. “So, what is happening here? This is far bigger than Trump or Elon Musk. They are symptoms of the world we are living in where technology has outpaced any of our ability to deal with it.”
Melber expressed anxieties that one person can own “all of Twitter,” saying, “If you own all of Twitter or Facebook or what have you, you don’t have to explain yourself.”
“You don’t even have to be transparent,” he continued, before suggesting that the owner of Twitter could sway elections. “You could secretly ban one party’s candidate, or all of its candidates, all of its nominees, or you could just secretly turn down the reach of their stuff and turn up the reach of something else and the rest of us might not even find out about it until after the election.”
“Elon Musk says this is all to help people because he is just a free speech, philosophically clear open minded helper, a world helper, if you will,” he added. “Is that true? Should you take him at his word?”
Less than 24 hours since buying Twitter and Musk is already being accused by the left of trying to steal an election. What wild narrative will liberals come up with next?
