Yeah, 80% of the Way to Bond Villain Status

One of the cave divers involved in the Thai soccer team cave rescue suggested that Elon Musk had no clue what he was talking about.

Elon Musk responded by called the cave diver a pedo:
The Elon Musk story took a bizarre turn Sunday morning, as the world famous entrepreneur took to Twitter to suggest a critic of his submarine rescue plan is a pedophile.

Musk’s tweet was directed at British cave diver Vern Unsworth, who had participated in the rescue of 12 Thai children and their soccer coach from a water-filled cave. In a recent CNN video news report, Unsworth had belittled Musk’s plan to deploy a mini-submarine made by SpaceX engineers to rescue the children.

“He can stick his submarine where it hurts,” Unsworth said when asked about Musk’s plan. “It just has absolutely no chance of working.”

Musk tweeted Sunday that he’ll send a sub through the cave to prove it could have worked, followed by an attack on Unsworth:

“We will make one of the mini-sub/pod going all the way to Cave 5 no problemo. Sorry pedo guy, you really did ask for it.” Musk tweeted.
Seriously, this guy made his fortune by figuring out how to ignore banking laws, and by getting lucky.

The idea that he is a visionary, as opposed to a self-absorbed and conceited ass does not match the facts at hand.

If the above doesn't make you wonder about Musk, the fact that he is a major donor to a Republican PAC dedicated to preserving their House majority should give you pause:
Now reports indicate that Musk was one of the top donors for a Republican PAC named Protect the House.

Filings show that the Tesla and SpaceX CEO donated $33,900 to the PAC, which is dedicated to keeping Republicans in control of Congress. The PAC raised over $8 million in quarter two, according to filings compiled by ProPublica.

The top donors of the PAC include Sheldon Adelson, the Vegas casino magnate, and Robert McNair, the owner of the NFL's Houston Texans. Although Adelson and McNair's contributions far outweighed Musk's — Adelson and McNair each gave $371,500 respectively, while Musk gave $33,900 — Musk was one of the top 50 donors of the PAC.
Seriously, there is nothing more pathetic than a rich businessman who believes his own PR.
