Despite Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s claims to have “overwhelmingly supported” Democrats in the past, he has plenty to complain about now. During a podcast interview, Musk absolutely torched President Joe Biden and the Democrat Party over their inability to get things done and even noted how Biden doesn’t seem to be in control.
According to Fox Business:
“The real president is whoever controls the teleprompter,” the Tesla CEO said. “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,” the CEO added, referencing the 2004 film in which Ron Burgundy reads whatever is written on the teleprompter, even if it would ruin his career.
“This administration doesn’t seem to get a lot done,” Musk said. “The Trump administration, leaving Trump aside, there were a lot of people in the administration who were effective at getting things done.”
He also claimed that the Democratic Party is “overly controlled by the unions and by the trial lawyers, particularly the class action lawyers.” He argued that when Democrats go against “the interests of the people,” it tends to come from the unions and the trial lawyers, while when Republicans do that, “it’s because of corporate evil and religious zealotry.”
Musk went on to say that Biden clearly cracks under the pressure from unions unlike his former boss President Barack Obama.
“In the case of Biden, he is simply too much captured by the unions, which was not the case with Obama,” Musk said.
