Musk weighs in on 2024 election, states KEY preference for ideal candidate

Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk weighed in heavily on the 2024 presidential election with a pair of tweets Thursday that didn’t fare so well for Donald Trump.

The billionaire would walk all over that message when he later shared early Friday that his $44 billion hostile takeover bid for Twitter was now on hold, but his earlier tweets on Trump being reinstated and President Joe Biden’s big mistake drew plenty of eyeballs.

In his first tweet on the matter, Musk said, “Even though I think a less divisive candidate would be better in 2024, I still think Trump should be restored to Twitter.”

The meltdown on the left over Musk potentially acquiring Twitter was in large part driven by the fear that he may reinstate the former president, who was banned for life as a result of the Jan 6, 2021, protest at the U.S. Capitol. For what it’s worth, Trump has said that he would not return, opting instead to post on his own social media platform Truth Social.

In a follow up tweet, Musk suggested that Biden was elected to office primarily because Americans needed a break from all the drama that surrounded the Trump presidency.

“Biden’s mistake is that he thinks he was elected to transform the country, but actually everyone just wanted less drama,” he tweeted.

There’s plenty at play here, beginning with the observation that Biden is attempting to “transform the country,” this being a reference to the extreme left-wing policies being pushed by the administration — given that many of these positions are not consistent with Biden’s record, critics suggest this is more of a reflection of Biden’s handlers than the president himself.

As for the drama, while no one will ever accuse Donald Trump of not taking to drama like a moth takes to a flame — or creating his fair share — the media did its part and then some in creating drama during his time in the White House. In fact, given analyses of Trump media coverage, which topped the 90 percentile range in negative coverage, it’s not a stretch to say the media actively engaged to undermine his presidency.

And while many did so openly and with a vengeance, voicing a moral obligation to forego journalistic integrity, the frenzy is not entirely foreign to recent Republican presidents — George W. Bush was viciously attacked by the media on a regular basis. So avoiding “drama” is a tall task for the GOP.

Musk suggested in a tweet posted a couple of weeks ago that he now considers himself center right, showing a slow migration in that direction after starting out center left.

“I strongly supported Obama for President, but today’s Democratic Party has been hijacked by extremists,” he observed.

Interestingly, in response to others, Musk indicated a preference for younger candidates running for president, as seen here:

It’s frustrating the even a smart guy like Elon Musk doesn’t see the game here. These people created the “drama” in order to get elected. Constantly attacking Trump, calling him racist, ignoring his successes and magnifying his failures, ignoring all positive stories and magnifying all negative stories, the leftist media created this drama for the purpose of getting a guy like Biden elected. And of course it’s not about stopping the drama. They could have stopped the drama at any time. It’s always about transforming the country, by any means necessary.

I mean, he also is accepting the canard that Biden was elected. That the will of the people, the preferences of the nation, actually are reflected in him being in the White House.

The people elected Donald Trump to a second term. The Biden team and the Democrat party brazenly stole it, then engaged in terrorism on Jan. 6 to create an illusion that Trump supporters were “insurrecting” and we couldn’t possible examine the shenanigans that altered key states’ results in suspicious ways at times convenient for Biden.

Biden’s occupancy of the White House doesn’t tell us the people wanted less drama; it tells us nothing at all about the people’s choice, because it is an override of their choice with blatant fraud at the last minute.
