Elon Musk on Monday said something that caused a historical outrage in his “recently turned” worst critics from the Democratic Party.
On his appearance on the “All-In Podcast” on Monday, the billionaire entrepreneur said, after years of voting exclusively for Democrats, he will be voting for Republicans this year for the first time ever.
“I have voted overwhelmingly for Democrats, historically. Like I’m not sure, I might never have voted for a Republican, just to be clear,”
Musk said. “Now this election I will,” he added.

At a later point in this interview, Musk also made a statement that “its hard to tell what Biden is doing to be totally frank” the live audience at the event started cheering and laughing when Musk said this “[whoever] controls the teleprompter is ‘the real president'” Musk added.
“I do feel like if somebody were to accidentally lean on the teleprompter, it’s going to be like Anchorman,” Musk said, referring to the 2004 Will Ferrell Comedy where the main character, news anchor Ron Burgundy, reads anything that is written on the teleprompter.
“This administration doesn’t seem to get a lot done,” Musk added. “The Trump administration, leaving Trump aside, there were a lot of people in the administration who were effective at getting things done.” He said praising the Trump administration and pointed out the obvious shortcomings of the Biden administration.
“I mean, the obvious reason for inflation is that the government printed a zillion amount of more money than it had, obviously,” he said when asked about Amazon founder Jeff Bezos’s recent public criticism of the Biden administration.
“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,” Musk added.
“If the federal government writes checks, they never bounce. So that is effectively creation of more dollars. And if there are more dollars created, then the increase in the goods and services across the economy, then you have inflation, again, velocity of money held constant.” he continued.
“If the government could just issue massive amounts of money and deficits didn’t matter, then, well, why don’t we just make the deficit 100 times bigger? The answer is, you can’t because it will basically turn the dollar into something that is worthless,” he continued. “Various countries have tried this experiment multiple times,” Musk said. “Have you seen Venezuela? Like the poor, poor people of Venezuela are, you know, have been just run roughshod by their government.” Musk concluded.
