Elon Musk Aims at Jeff Bezos After Incendiary WaPo Article: ‘Give my Regards to your Puppet Master’

The CEO of Tesla and SpaceX took a nasty jab at the Washington Post when they contacted Elon Musk for a comment about an article that criticized him for stretching himself too thin between business ventures. 

The WaPo story asserts that flagship Tesla’s quality is tanking as Musk focuses on other business ventures including SpaceX and Starlink.  

“In interviews with a dozen current and former Tesla employees, investors and analysts, critics pointed to a series of questionable business moves, and even outright missteps by Tesla, as a potential symptom of the outside demands on Musk,” the article stated.  

A regulatory finding the company submitted in February read: “We are highly dependent on the services of Elon Musk, our Chief Executive Officer and largest stockholder. Although Mr. Musk spends significant time with Tesla and is highly active in our management, he does not devote his full time and attention to Tesla.”

The post slammed Tesla’s Model S and Model Y cars, claiming the S’s steering wheel would “likely be scrutinized by regulators,” and poor sales of the Y caused the company to slash the price by $3,000. One critic blamed Musk for the failures, “There isn’t a culture at Tesla really other than ‘let’s do what Elon wants to do.”

The paper took a shot at Musk for his disgruntlement over the California lockdowns, calling his reaction a “public meltdown.” In April he commented, “To say that they cannot leave their house and they will be arrested if they do, this is fascist. This is not democratic — this is not freedom.”

When the Post asked for Musk’s comment about the article, he replied: “Give my regards to your puppet master.” In reference to WaPo’s owner, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, who is Musk’s direct competitor in the satellite internet race.  

Bezos just regained the top spot of the world’s wealthiest man after Tesla stock dropped 20% and Musk lost 15 billion dollars.

Not a nice shot, INCREDIBLE SHOT MR. MUSK!!! He was able to hit Mr. Bezos right between the eyes which would have seemed impossible with Jeff’s nose planted so firmly between Joe’s Cheeks.

Note to Musk: save Tesla. Move it to Texas and the midwest. And start making internal combustion driven vehicles (of every stripe) to supplement the nonsensical electric vehicles. We would love to see a Tesla diesel – the ONLY carbon neutral form of motorvation – (+/- hybrid) pick up truck. America’s gem GM has been destroyed by successive moron mismanagement and is currently run by the worst management ever. Become the new GM.

Bezos what an a..wipe. Love to meet him but it would do no good he is a corrupt animal who needs to be investigated, tried, and hung. This is a fact. Now I would hate to watch a hanging but maybe, a comfy chair, popcorn, a nice drink an his hanging is wort considering. Need to think about that.

Musk may have just lost 15 billion dollars, but it appears that he has both “class and style”, which is something we can not say for Bezo….

Elon Musk is one of the people who make America great. He isn’t afraid to speak his mind in an epoch of attempted mind control.
Regardless of how much money he has, it’s painfully obvious that Bezos has become just another “herd follower” who has given up the possibility of thinking for himself by surrendering to the “woke” crowd.

Every day the Tech Kings show their disdain for the middle class. They only want serfs like Biden! They look down on Musk because he’s not an Elitist, and consider him not their “intellectual” equal! God Bless the 2ndA! It will be America’s salvation!
