Twitter is in shock after Elon Musk declared that he would vote for Republicans during the midterm elections.
Musk stated that he would vote Republican in the upcoming election, despite having almost always voted Democrat during a live episode on the All-In Podcast recorded at a Miami tech conference.
He said, “I have voted overwhelmingly in favor of Democrats, historically – overwhelming.” It’s possible that I may never have voted in favor of a Republican. This election, I will.”
Tesla CEO, however, offered some insight into his motivation for switching to politics. He claimed that Democrats are not necessarily controlled by the people but rather by special interests.
He explained that “the issue is that the Democrat Party has been overly controlled both by the unions as well as by trial lawyers – especially the class action lawyers.”
He said, “And generally if something isn’t in the interests of the people of the Democrat side it’s going be because of unions – which is just another type of monopoly – and the trial lawyers.”
However, he did criticize Republicans. He claimed that their problems stem from “corporate evil” and “religious zealotry.” Musk claimed that he was a “moderate” during the past.
However, Twitter users were still stunned to hear that Musk would vote in the next election for Republicans.
Conservative radio host Buck Sexton praised this news and tweeted that Musk knew how insane it would be for him to vote Democrat. He wrote: “The choice between insane and sane… @elonmusk knows this. Bravo!
“So @elonmusk declared for freedom. Hugh Hewitt, conservative radio host, tweeted “Good.”
Tim Pool, an independent journalist, wrote that “[M]aybe left should reflect upon why people are fleeing from them.”
“Bingo, @elonmusk. While you don’t need to be a Republican to vote, you cannot be a Democrat. You must vote for Republican in order to save America. We can then discuss the details. “,” tweeted Dave Rubin, host of The Rubin Report.
The Hodge Twins, a conservative comedian, tweeted that “Elon Musk just announced he was voting Republican.” What would you expect from an genius?
Mark Kaye, a radio host, responded to the news by tweeting: “After supporting Democrats his entire life @elonmusk declares he will finally vote Republican.” If you’ve ever voted for a Republican, you can take pride in knowing you are smarter that the richest man on the planet.
Elizabeth Spiers, MSNBC’s political commentator, tweeted: “Given his epic story of lying and his real-world behavior I’d love to see evidence that [he] has ever *not* voted Republican.”
Former chief of staff to the former governor. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.), Lindsey Boylan said, “This man just desires attention. He might be the richest man on the planet, but he is also one of the most powerful and craves attention. It is depressing to have so much but feel so poor. It is so depressing.
