Maye Musk, model, author and mother to billionaire CEO Elon Musk, proved yet again Monday that a parent’s pride in their child’s accomplishments is unending, while simultaneously ripping on the cronyism that governs the agenda-driven decisions of President Joe Biden’s administration.
The 73-year-old author of the international bestselling book “A Woman Makes a Plan: Advice For a Lifetime of Adventure, Beauty and Success,” Musk has regularly used social media to weigh in on current events, especially as they pertain to the successes of her son’s companies.
Following another milestone launch by SpaceX, Musk drew attention to the Biden administration’s lack of involvement within these enterprises, calling them out by name, “Sharing this remarkable achievement with @JoeBiden @POTUS @VP @KamalaHarris who are completely unaware of the world’s most advanced rockets and spacecraft. @SpaceX”
Sharing this remarkable achievement with @JoeBiden @POTUS @VP @KamalaHarris who are completely unaware of the world’s most advanced rockets and spacecraft. @SpaceX #MadeInAmerica #JustSaySpacex 😉 https://t.co/7XejbJceAt

She added the hashtags, “#MadeInAmerica” and “#JustSaySpacex” to the tweet that praised the “150th successful launch” as shots against the administration and a callback to previous public shaming of the president for dismissal of her son’s companies perceived to be based on refusals to unionize.
Musk had used an opportunity in November when Biden had visited a General Motors electric vehicle site to call out the president’s absurd political claims that weren’t founded in reality. “You electrified the entire auto industry. You led,” Biden claimed at the time.
😂😂 Biden’s speech was written 20 years ago, just before GM killed the electric car. His speechwriter uploaded the wrong file😳🤪 https://t.co/3zT0y2RwvA

“Biden’s speech was written 20 years ago,” Musk replied with laughing emojis, “just before GM killed the electric car. His speechwriter uploaded the wrong file.”
Reports indicate that Tesla had nearly 70 percent of the total electric vehicle market in the United States in 2021 with Nissan as their next nearest competitor at 8.5 percent.
“GM tried to kill the electric car. Ford builds their cars in Mexico. Meantime, Tesla started the EV revolution and builds their cars in The United States,” a Tesla owner vouched in support of Musk’s claim.
The future is already here and it was built by Tesla. Epic gaslighting by the White House, first to snub Tesla at their EV summit and now to pretend their union payoff in BBB will be responsible for Tesla’s EV revolution. https://t.co/bU7bUZD0Qf

“The future is already here and it was built by Tesla. Epic gaslighting by the White House, first to snub Tesla at their EV summit and now to pretend their union payoff in BBB will be responsible for Tesla’s EV revolution,” investor David Sacks pointed out after Vice President Harris ignored the fact that Biden’s plans did not recognize Tesla was already building electric vehicles in the United States.
The Tesla CEO couldn’t help but chime in as well likening the politicians to non-playable video game characters (NPCs) that are only programmed with a set number of phrases and no real ability for decision making.
Let’s see if we can get them to say the word “Tesla”!
— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) November 22, 2021
“Maybe they are NPCs and Tesla just isn’t in their dialogue tree?” he tweeted before adding, “Let’s see if we can get them to say the word ‘Tesla’!”
As the administration’s legislative proposals continually pose threats to the thriving business goals of Musk, his mother has also criticized politicians for harping on his wealth while pushing for corporate bailouts. In early March, she tweeted at progressive Democrat Sens. Bernie Sanders (VT) and Elizabeth Warren (MA) over calls for tax increases on the rich.

“You’re welcome,” she wrote to accompany the article that declared Elon Musk had paid almost enough in taxes to cover the entirety of GM’s bailout.
Respondents on Twitter were sure to echo Maye Musk’s sentiments agreeing that they aren’t actually looking to change things and their proposals are just about keeping the status quo.
They refuse to say the name of the world’s most powerful innovators- it’s shameful. Morally wrong. They don’t truly want things to change for the better.

They are just short of calling @SpaceX broomsticks and @tesla hot wheels. The government and the media are so far behind the public at this point that “out of touch” doesn’t begin to describe them. Time for a change
