Elon Musk Warns Obama’s Top Staffer Voters Are Abandoning Democrats: ‘I Think It’s Big’

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has warned that former President Barack Obama’s top staffer voters are abandoning Democrats as the party pushes toward the far-left.

Jon Favreau was Obama’s top White House speechwriter.

He left the government and founded a liberal media company called Crooked Media.

He was not happy that Elon Musk publicly announced he would no longer vote or support Democrat politicians and will now vote Republican instead.

“In the past, I voted Democrat because they were (mostly) the kindness party,” Musk said earlier this week.

“But they have become the party of division & hate, so I can no longer support them and will vote Republican.

“Now, watch their dirty tricks campaign against me unfold.”

Favreau fired back, saying: “Hey man, if you want to support a bunch of electric vehicle-hating climate deniers, that’s on you.

“Not sure it helps the cause that you and your team have dedicated much of your lives to, but I guess you’ll get some attention on Twitter, so there’s that!”

Musk: “Hi Jon!

“You’re a good dude, but obv die-hard Dem, so have to support the party, but this Adminstration has done everything it can to sideline & ignore Tesla, even though we have made twice as many EVs as rest of US industry combined.”

Favreau: “I know you’re mad that the guy who was part of a White House that made Tesla possible isn’t giving Tesla enough love now, but supporting climate-denying MAGA politicians who want to overturn elections isn’t the answer.

“You’re much closer to Dems on climate and I hope democracy.”

Musk: “I’ve just switched from moderate D to moderate R, as I think many independent voters have done.

“We will know the magnitude of this trend in November. I think it’s big.”

A Twitter user chimed in with:

“The point that Jon makes regarding government playing a crucial role in making Tesla, is not true.

“Yes, Tesla did receive an energy efficiency loan from govt in 2010 but so did many car companies like GM & Chrysler.

“It was actually the Daimler investment in 2009 that was crucial.”

Musk said: “Correct.”

The Twitter user said:

“And of all the US car companies that received the loan, only Tesla has repaid the full loan amount with full interest.”
