In a wide-ranging interview this week with the Financial Times, billionaire Elon Musk explained why he believes his son disowned him, proposed a new super PAC for moderate candidates, said he doesn’t hate former President Donald Trump, and bashed current President Joe Biden for being too old.
Musk has eight children, one of whom, Xavier Musk, is reportedly transgender. Earlier this year Xavier petitioned a court to change his name to Vivian Jenna Wilson.
“In the docs, she says she wants to be recognized as female — but the name change isn’t just about her transitioning, there’s clearly a rift with dear ol’ Dad. Vivian lists her reason for the name change as … ‘Gender Identity and the fact that I no longer live with or wish to be related to my biological father in any way, shape or form,'” TMZ reported at the time.
“One of Elon Musk’s children wants nothing to do with him, and has filed legal docs to drop his famous last name — in fact, she’s changing her full name, and legally declaring her gender identity.” https://t.co/vY2Mn4qSOc

It appears Xavier/Vivian is a raging leftist. Musk isn’t surprised by this.
“He blames the fact that his teenage daughter no longer wants to be associated with him on the supposed takeover of elite schools and universities by neo-Marxists,” the Times reported.
“It’s full-on communism . . . and a general sentiment that if you’re rich, you’re evil,” Musk said in his own words.
Indeed, and one of the people whom neo-Marxists, communists, and other far-leftists hate most is Musk.
Despite his efforts to combat climate change, leftists hate him because he believes in free speech — even when it offends:
I absolutely support trans, but all these pronouns are an esthetic nightmare

That said, Musk isn’t too concerned over the fact that one of his children has disowned him.
“It [the relationship] may change, but I have very good relationships with all the others [children]. Can’t win them all,” he said.
During the Financial Times interview, Musk also addressed a couple pertinent political matters, including President Joe Biden’s snub of him last year.
“He had an electric vehicle summit at the White House and deliberately didn’t invite Tesla last year. Then to follow it up, to add insult to injury, at a big event he said that GM was leading the electric car revolution, in the same quarter that GM shipped 26 electric cars and we shipped 300,000. Does that seem fair to you?” Musk said.
He’s previously blamed the snub on Biden’s incestuous relationship with unions.
“I think the general public is not aware of the degree to which the unions control the Democratic Party. One does not need to speculate on this point,” he said in an interview this past summer with the Tesla Owners Silicon Valley club.
He then specifically drew attention to how the president had refused to invite Tesla to its electric vehicle summit in August of 2021, despite the company producing more EVs than any other company in the world.
“Last year, President Biden held an EV summit where Tesla was explicitly not allowed to come, but the UAW was. Tesla’s made two-thirds of all electric vehicles in the United States, so deliberately excluding us from an EV summit at the White House but including the UAW, that tells you all you need to know,” he said.

Musk also told the Financial Times that he’s considering establishing a Super PAC, the “Super Moderate Super PAC,” to support candidates with moderate political views.
A longtime Democrat, this year he intends to vote for Republicans for the first time in his life. Why? Because the Democrat Party has become “the party of division & hate.”
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 … 🍿

Speaking of hate, he told the Financial Times that he doesn’t hate Trump, despite having clashed with him a few times.
Recall that after Musk initially pulled out of his deal to purchase Twitter, Trump called him a “bullshit artist.”
In response, Musk posted this:
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.

As for Biden, he straight-up believes the president is far too old to run for office again.
“You don’t want to be too far from the average age of the population because it’s going to be very difficult to stay in touch . . . Maybe one generation away from the average age is OK, but two generations? At the point where you’ve got great-grandchildren, I don’t know, how in touch with the people are you? Is it even possible to be?” he said.
Excellent question …
