Elon Musk: ‘It’s time for Trump to hang up his hat & sail into the sunset’

In a war of words between Donald Trump and Elon Musk, I’m rooting for both of them to destroy each other. I know it won’t happen, but I am curious to see if either dumbass can do significant damage to the other one. If anything, I weirdly believe that Trump could do a lot more damage to Musk than the other way around. Many of Musk’s biggest fanboys are dumbf–k Trumpers, and if those people have to choose, they’ll choose Trump and not Musk. So, the start of this latest fascist beef was over the weekend, when Trump called Musk a “bulls–t artist.”

Former President Trump during an event in Alaska late Saturday called Tesla CEO Elon Musk a “bullshit artist” for supporting the former president’s opponents in 2016 and 2020.

“He said the other day, ‘Oh, I’ve never voted for a Republican,’” Trump said at a rally.

“I said, ‘I didn’t know that,’” Trump continued. “He told me he voted for me, so he’s another bullsh-t artist.”

Last month, Musk tweeted that he voted for a Republican for the first time in Mayra Flores, who flipped a traditionally Democratic House seat in a Texas special election.

Politically, it’s sort of funny that Musk and Trump both want to be accepted by “the cool people,” the media elites, the Democrats, and they both think it’s tacky that their biggest supporters are uneducated right-wing dumbasses. Musk and Trump both lie about their money and they’re both con artists too. The two men have so much in common. Perhaps that’s why they’re fighting over turf right now – this is basically Trump warning his marks that Musk will con them too. So obviously, Musk had to respond:

Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk said Monday that he thinks former President Donald Trump should, “hang up his hat & sail into the sunset.”

Writing on Twitter, where Musk has more than 100 million followers, the celebrity CEO said: “I don’t hate the man, but it’s time for Trump to hang up his hat & sail into the sunset. Dems should also call off the attack – don’t make it so that Trump’s only way to survive is to regain the Presidency.”

“Dems should also call off the attack – don’t make it so that Trump’s only way to survive is to regain the Presidency” – what is he talking about? Nevermind, I don’t want to know and I don’t actually care that much. These are two right-wing racist con men beefing over turf, over the big con, and over messaging.

    Even a broken clock is right twice a day! I agree with him, but instead of “the sunset,” make it “prison.”

  2. Maida says:

    This is pure opportunism on Musk’s part — he’s going to back DeSantis. It’s all about Musk not wanting to pay taxes or allow his employees to unionize. And about the way the right wing will fawn on him in a way the left will not.

    Money and adulation. It’s that simple with Mr. Musk.

  3. Rapunzel says:

    Trump vs. Musk is a choice of shit vs diarrhea. I’m staying away from all the poo.

  4. Liss says:

    The biggest problem is De Santis. He’s more calculating and able than Trump, and Musk is already on board.

    • Lorelei says:

      @Liss, MTE. And the prospect of a President DeSantis is…I actually do not even know what the words are to accurately describe that

    • Christine says:

      Yes. If you thought the Trump years were bad… it’s nothing compared to someone in charge who isn’t a complete and total idiot. We should be terrified and vote our asses off accordingly.

    • Duo says:

      There is a concerted effort on the right to start discrediting Trump in order to uplift DeSantis instead. So when you see people like Musk and Rogan criticize Trump, don’t get excited and think we are moving away from this. And yes, DeSantis is a lot more calculating and potentially scarier than Trump. (Though the truly savvy one in his camp is his wife. He would not be anywhere near as auccessful without her stomping on people and pushing him forward.)

      • Twin Falls says:

        This 💯 Someone emailed me the other day about how Rogan dumping Trump was a good sign and I said it’s not. They’ve decided to back DeSantis who is worse than Trump.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      while absolutely true, do not underestimate the MAGAts’ devotion to 45.

      if 45 runs, which I’m 50/50 on right now, the primaries will likely be brutal with Deathsentence and Dumpy hurling 7th grade insults at each other. and if 45 loses the primary, I could totally see him pulling a Ross Perot and running as the candidate from The MAGA party. MAGA/GOP split the vote and Dems win?…wishful thinking on my part?…I mean, I could even see his most ardent supporters sitting out the election or writing him in if he’s not on the ballot.

  5. Colby says:

    If Trump runs for president, then any attempts to hold him accountable for January 6 “look” like a political attack. And because Democrats are too spineless to do what they need to do, they would probably drop everything to avoid “looking bad” or looking like this is a political move instead of a moral and legal one.

    • Lala11_7 says:

      How are the Dems being too spineless…because as a Black Woman who has been voting and fighting for Democracy in EVERY election since 1987…see that or have lived that…when the ONLY thing that’s kept me & mines from total catastrophe are policies & laws passed & protected by Democrats…

      After DECADES of being decimated whenever there is a Republican POTUS & Congress…I can truthfully state…that the Dems are NOT spineless…it’s just that WAY TOO MANY FOLKS…mistake kindness for weakness and obviously do NOT understand that when it comes to POWER on this planet…there’s WAY MORE bad guys…than GOOD…PERIOD!

      • Jaded says:

        Thank you Lala11_7. I hate the simplification and generalization of comments like Colbys’. There are spineless politicians on both sides of the political divide as well as earnest, dedicated and KIND ones who fight hard for democracy, not plutocracy.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        @ Lala11_7, yes!!!! I would also like to thank you for your insightful comment!!!

        We have had a history of Democrat presidents that are consistently being elected and having to clean up ALL of the disasters that Repugnant’s leave in their wake of holding office in the WH. This is NOT new news.

      • Traveller says:

        Thank you Lala11_7 for taking the time to counter this argument which is, as Jaded has said, an extreme and dangerous oversimplification of the facts.

        Voting in as many democrats as possible – giving them majority rule – is our only hope to keep from sinking further into the narrow vision republicans have for this country; especially the current republican party members dominated by the lunatic fringe.

  6. Jferber says:

    Yeah, DeSantis is th capable Trump. Do not enter that abyss.

  7. Merricat says:

    Put ’em both in a bag and let them fight it out. When the bag until it goes completely still, toss it in the garbage.

  8. Lou says:

    Imagine a world where these aging, racist patriarchical oligarchs, gorged from generational wealth and an economic system founded upon exploited enslaved people and now the 99%, are seen for the sociopaths they are. Late stage capitalism just keeps shoving shit into our mouths and telling us there’s nothing better to eat.

  9. Moira's Rose's Garden says:

    I hate them both.

    Send Musty back to South Africa but not before grabbing any $$ he has to reimburse the US taxpayers for the Tesla bailout.

    As far as the Drumps, they can all be sent to a gulag

  10. girl_ninja says:

    Since both the blob and the toad have the same fanbase maybe they’ll start eating each other like rats. Division is the key with those MAGA’s.

  11. Donna Sek says:

    The billionaire babys no longer want to play nice with each other. What a surprise.

  12. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    @LALA11_7, Yes Ma’am. Brava.

    @COLBY, I’m so happy we have brave, courageous patriots on the right at the ready to defend democracy, because they helped so very much during that fascist’s reign. Such fine upstanding, responsible, hard-working men and women who simply want the best for each and every one of us. 🤮

  13. After the mess he’s got himself with Twitter, Elon Musk would do well to clean up that mess before ridiculing Donald Trump the greatest POTUS in history……
