Elon Musk seems to enjoy life more than most, finding satisfaction in exposing hypocrisy, incompetence and wrongdoing. The truism was evidenced again on Wednesday when Musk engaged MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle on Twitter.
The liberal platform’s commentator attempted to chastise Musk for throwing light on the sordid lifestyle of Hunter Biden.
Ruhle was evidently upset that Musk had posted a meme poking fun of Hunter Biden.
In the meme, Musk shows a man laden with numerous cameras attached to his helmet with the caption, “Hunter Biden every time he buys crack and hookers.”
Musk added: “A+ for the cinematography.”
Ruhle chided Musk, noting that he was not putting his substantial influence to best use.
“Imagine the positive impact you could have on the world if you used the extraordinary amount of influence and power you have to spread decency, kindness, and positivity?” Ruhle said pointedly.
“Imagine if MSNBC did that,” Musk hit back.
MSNBC was down for the count.
Musk’s initial tweet likely referenced a recently leaked video appearing to show Hunter measuring out drugs while speaking and cavorting with a prostitute.
Musk has a history of high-profile comments on sensitive subjects. Last week, he poked fun at President Biden for the latest in a series of teleprompter gaffes, tweeting:
“Whoever controls the teleprompter is the real President!”
Humorously, Musk included an image from the film “Anchorman” in which Will Ferrell’s character Ron Burgundy comically read everything on the prompter during a live report.
In May, Musk announced he would be voting Republican in the next election, drawing outrage from the left. Musk wrote:
“In the past I voted Democrat, because they were (mostly) the kindness party. But they have become the party of division & hate, so I can no longer support them and will vote Republican. Now, watch their dirty tricks campaign against me unfold…”
Musk is currently in a Twitter tweeting war with the Twitter board, who are suing Musk in an attempt to force him to fulfill his offer to purchase the company for $44 billion. Musk maintains that the offer was contingent on Twitter disclosing how many “bots” and spam accounts operate on the platform — information the board refuses to turn over. Showing contempt for the board’s practices, Musk tweeted:
