There are many reasons the Democratic establishment hates billionaire innovator Elon Musk. The formerly lifelong Democrat has recently come out as a sharp critic of the party. He even encouraged voters to support the GOP in the last election. More than that, though, his leadership at Twitter has exposed the left’s schemes to censor conservatives.
And it doesn’t appear that Musk is finished ticking off Democrats. Recently, he took a trip to Capitol Hill. The new CEO of Twitter planned to meet with congressional leaders to discuss important issues. No doubt, he had much to say about social media and online censorship. But something was peculiar about the visit.
From Fox News:
Billionaire Elon Musk only scheduled meetings with Republicans for his first visit to the U.S. Capitol since becoming the CEO of Twitter last week.
Musk met with House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Ky., House Judiciary Committee chairman Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, Jan. 26, but he didn’t schedule any meetings with Congressional Democrats. While Musk did tweet about meeting with Democratic Leader Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y., during the visit, their encounter was only a chance meeting while walking the halls of Congress, Jeffries’ staff told Politico.
Oh, wow! Elon Musk met with lawmakers in D.C. for the first time as CEO and owner of Twitter. But, according to reports, he did not have any scheduled meetings with Democrats. The billionaire and tech icon gave the liberal party the cold shoulder.
The only time we know he met with a Democrat was an unscheduled drop-in by Hakeem Jeffries, the new Democrat House Minority Leader. And that wasn’t planned. He literally just bumped into the man!
This is a pretty harsh snub to the Democrats. But it comes as Democrats fiercely attacked Musk as he liberated Twitter from strict censorship. Numerous Democrats from Washington accused Musk of all kinds of things, including federal crimes, because of his move to end social media’s attack on free speech.
And that doesn’t include the Biden administration’s ongoing feud with the Tesla CEO. Biden has been pushing electric vehicles for years now but not once has invited Musk–the leader in EV production–to speak with him.
When you consider the reason Musk was going to D.C., it makes sense that he didn’t meet with Democrats. Musk has been trying to end Twitter’s history of silencing voices online. But Twitter never silenced Democrats. The censorship was always one-way. And considering Musk recently outed top Democrat officials for colluding with Twitter, he probably had information to give to Republicans.
Regardless, it seems like Democrats’ hatred for the man will only continue.
- Elon Musk only scheduled meetings with Republicans during his trip to D.C.
- Musk spoke with top Republican congressmen over issues concerning social media.
- He seemingly only met with one Democrat, Hakeem Jeffries, and that wasn’t planned.
