Elon Musk Applauds Kyrsten Sinema Telling Democrats to Pound Sand: ‘Good for Senator Sinema’

Twitter boss Elon Musk has praised Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (I-AZ) after her bombshell announcement that she has left the Democratic Party to become an independent senator.

As Slay News reported, Sinema announced early Friday morning that she had switched from Democrat to Independent, causing chaos in Washington D.C.

So far, it’s unclear how this changes the balance of power in the Senate as Sinema has yet to confirm whether she will caucus with Democrats.

However, Sinema spends more than half her time in the chamber hanging out on the Republican side.

While the Democrats and the media panicked over Sinema, Musk applauded the move.

“Good for [Senator Sinema]!” Musk tweeted.

“I hope more of our elected leaders act independently, aka in the interests of the people.

“Something I always admired about American legislators, at least historically, was that they would sometimes vote against the party line,” he added.

Sinema said:

“In a natural extension of my service since I was first elected to Congress, I have joined the growing numbers of Arizonans who reject party politics by declaring my independence from the broken partisan system in Washington and formally registering as an Arizona Independent.

“Over the past four years, I’ve worked proudly with other Senators in both parties and forged consensus on successful laws helping everyday Arizonans build better lives for themselves and their families.

“Becoming an Independent won’t change my work in the Senate; my service to Arizona remains the same.”
