It’s no secret that the radical left Democrats in Washington have had it out for tech billionaire Elon Musk for some time now. But the CEO of SpaceX and Tesla made it clear where he stands last week when he made an unannounced visit to Capitol Hill, meeting with several high-profile Republicans, but snubbing Democrats completely.
That’s right, the Twitter boss made the rounds with House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, GOP firebrand Rep. Jim Jordan, and even had a sit-down with White House officials to discuss electric cars, but not a single Democrat was on his schedule.
It’s a bold move considering Democrats have been gunning for Musk for months, attacking him for his “free speech” changes to the Twitter platform and threatening investigations into his acquisition of the company.
But why should Musk give the time of day to Democrats who have shown nothing but disdain for him and his pro-Republican views? Just last fall, the tech mogul hit back at Democrats who were threatening him with investigations, calling them “actors on the political stage” and pointing out their coordinated attacks against him.
And when Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) called for an investigation into Musk’s purchase of Twitter, the tech genius trolled Democrats by calling attention to the FTX scandal they refused to look into.
And let’s not forget, Musk has also been openly supportive of Republicans, even joining former President Donald Trump in endorsing Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) for Speaker of the House. So, it’s no surprise that when it came time for Musk to make his rounds in Washington, he chose to meet with Republicans and give the cold shoulder to Democrats.
Despite Democrats’ attempts to hold Musk accountable, they still want to hear from him, but let’s be real, they have no one to blame but themselves. They are the ones who have been attacking Musk and trying to discredit him at every turn. And now, they’re left to stew in their own juice as the Twitter boss continues to make waves and support Republicans in Washington.
In conclusion, Elon Musk’s visit to Capitol Hill was a clear display of where his loyalty lies, and it’s not with the radical left Democrats. Republicans are the ones who have shown the tech genius respect and support, and it’s about time that Democrats take a step back and reconsider their anti-business, anti-free speech agenda.
