Between smoking weed on camera, tweeting out false buyout rumors, the whole submarine pedo libel thing, it's clear that a guy who made his money by skirting a bank regulations it's clear that he's not what one would call a "Very Stable Genius."
In the latest case Elon Musk launched into a diatribe against Covid-19 isolation measures at an Earnings Call.
This guy has been surrounded by toadies reassuring him of his special genius for years:
Elon Musk unleashed a diatribe against shelter-in-place orders, describing the public health measures intended to stem the spread of coronavirus as “fascist”, during an earnings call on Wednesday.
“This is not democratic,” he said of the orders, which he falsely characterized as stipulating that anyone who leaves home would be arrested. “This is not freedom – give people back their goddamn freedom.”
Musk’s rant came despite a relatively good earnings report for Tesla, in which the company beat analysts’ estimates for first-quarter revenue on Wednesday. It posted its third straight quarterly profit after recording a solid number of deliveries during the period, despite disruptions due to the pandemic.
Earlier on the call, Musk specifically cited the Bay Area’s shelter-in-place order, which has prevented his factory in Fremont, California, from opening, as a concern.
He thinks that he's a genius because he got rich through connections and luck.
This guy is a nut.
