Elon Musk taunted President Biden or the “person controlling” the President’s Twitter account for failing to mention Tesla’s investment in electric vehicle production during the State of the Union address.
Biden tweets a portion of his speech, which outlines the investments made in America by Ford and GM.
“Ford is investing $11 billion in electric vehicles, creating 11,000 jobs across the country,” he explained. “GM is making the largest investment in its history — $7 billion to build electric vehicles, creating 4,000 jobs in Michigan.”
Musk responded on Twitter to comments and was clearly upset by the treatment of his company.
Ford is investing $11B to build electric vehicles—creating 11,000 jobs across the country.
GM is making the largest investment in its history—$7B to build electric vehicles, creating 4,000 jobs in Michigan.

Ford vehicles recently came up during another online spat between Musk and neoconservative ‘Never Trump’ David Frum.
Frum blasted Musk for an ill-advised meme comparing Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s forceful crackdown on protesters to Hitler.
“If you’re comparing Justin Trudeau to [Adolf] Hitler,” Frum criticized, “well congratulations to you on leading a life so safe, so pleasant, with such abundant meals and comfortable beds that you have lost the ability even to *imagine* what fear, persecution, suffering, and pain would feel like.”
It didn’t take long for people to point out that Frum himself had, on multiple occasions, compared Trump supporters to Nazis.

Musk responded to that reality by calling Frum a “hypocritical megadouche.”
Frum responded in kind to the allegations that he was a hypocrite and urged his followers not to buy Teslas but Ford vehicles.

Musk is an ardent critic of liberal politicians
Musk made a great impression by late following prominent liberal politicians.
He blasted Senator Elizabeth Warren as “Senator Karen” after the Massachusetts Democrat accused him of not paying taxes and essentially being a “freeloader.”
Please don’t call the manager on me, Senator Karen 🙏

Musk also mocked Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) after the latter said, “We must demand that the extremely wealthy pay their fair share.”
“I keep forgetting that you’re still alive,” he fried back.

Musk has been a frequent critic of the Biden administration saying they are “not the friendliest” to Tesla when it comes to promoting their investments in electric cars in the United States.
Feud between @elonmusk @POTUS isn’t about Elon getting recognition. It’s about the 90,000+ employees and thousands more contractors who are getting snubbed by the president. Elon defends his workers, some of which are the finest talent in this country!

“Biden has pointedly ignored Tesla at every turn and falsely stated to the public that GM leads the electric car industry,” Musk told CNBC last week.
“Tesla produced over 300,000 electric vehicles last quarter, and GM produced 26.”
