What does Elon Musk stand for? He is a prolific Twitter user. And has tweeted large amounts of nonsense about the environmental effects of Bitcoin. And after the thousands of crashes and rebounds we've seen over the years, many people do not agree with him on everything.
Stu Burguiere, host of Stu Does America, asked his audience on Thursday to remember when Musk was the heartthrob of the left for many years and that he is serious about global warming. So serious that he built an entirely electric car company. He is building spaceships to escape the planet, in part because of global warming.
But this billionaire chose to act instead of sitting around crying about the environment on Twitter all day. And because he chose to take action, he became an enemy of the left. The left prefers to use Twitter as a political culture. Musk is trying to fix problems.
But Elon likes his Twitter. He trolls people and gets people talking about things they weren't talking about before. Even a few times, he famously screwed up his business by tweeting things that the CEO of the company should probably avoid. He is a pretty funny guy.
In 2008, when Glenn Beck was on CNN Headline News, we did a show called "The Climate of Fear," which aimed to present the other side of global warming. Tesla was still in the beginning phases of development, and Musk did not even own the company. Musk was eventually brought on board Tesla as an adviser, and he finally forced the founding members out.
So, Tesla was not Musk's original idea. However, he did make a lot of progress, and Tesla turned into the most prominent car company globally, So he's a big success story. He's the richest guy in the world. Musk's passion for tweeting and his billions afford him the chance to fix Twitter.
Musk has invested in Twitter, and he believes in its potential to be the platform for free speech around the globe. He offered to buy 100 percent of Twitter for $43 billion because he believes that Twitter has extraordinary potential, and he will unlock it. And let's be honest, he probably will. After all, Musk has more expertise when it comes to Twitter than he ever did about electric cars or spaceships. He learned about cars and spaceships on the fly, and both companies turned out to be quite impressive.
We will have to wait and see, but based on Musk's background, he could do a better job running the platform. We do not know if Twitter will accept the offer, but we know they ought to.
