Elon Musk has revealed that he has flipped to the Republican Party after years of voting for Democrats.
“I have voted overwhelmingly for Democrats, historically,” Musk told the All-In podcast.
“Like, I’m not sure, I might never have voted for a Republican, just to be clear.
“Now this election I will.”
Musk took multiple shots at Democrat President Joe Biden during the interview.
“The real president is whoever controls the teleprompter,” he 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,” Musk said, comparing Biden to the bumbling newscaster Ron Burgundy who reads whatever is written on the teleprompter, even if it makes no sense.
“This administration doesn’t seem to get a lot done,” Musk continued.
“The Trump administration, leaving Trump aside, there were a lot of people in the administration who were effective at getting things done.”
“In the case of Biden, he is simply too much captured by the unions, which was not the case with Obama,” Musk said.
Obama was “quite reasonable,” but Musk said Biden puts “unions ahead of the public.”
Musk also ripped Biden on inflation:
“I mean, the obvious reason for inflation is that the government printed a zillion amount of more money than it had, obviously.
“So it’s like the government can’t just, you know, issue checks far in excess of revenue without there being inflation, you know, velocity of money held constant.”
“The reality is that Twitter, at this point, has a very far left bias,” Musk said.
“And I would trust myself as a moderate and neither Republican or Democrat.”
“There’s got to be like a serious cleaning out of the pipes in California.
“It went from the ‘land of opportunity’ to the land of ‘taxes, overregulation, and litigation.’
“There’s got to be an above zero percent chance of Republicans winning in California,” he said.
