Consider how many millions, billions, in taxpayer funds have gone to him. Any way one cuts it, Musk is a guy who has played taxpayers, and the crony system brilliantly. (For himself.) But one gets more and more of John DeLorean vibe from the guy these days.
Not even 7 days after we pondered what part of Elon Musk’s PR genius compelled him to triple down on his claim that a British cave rescuer was a “pedo” than Musk was back at it. He has now reportedly quadrupled down on these claims, essentially going “all in” on his previous statements and labeling rescue diver Vern Unsworth a “child rapist” in an e-mail he sent to BuzzFeed news.
As Zerohedge points out later in the article, even if this claim were true, one has to wonder why this is taking the time of a CEO who has a company that seems just a few steps from the abyss.
