A few months ago, I criticized Tesla’s quality on Twitter. Fans of Elon Musk, attacked me for three days, one person threatened to me beat me with a wooden spoon. I doubt many of my attackers owned Tesla’s .
Many defended him as a revolutionary, someone who was going to change the world and make it a better place.
Then Musk announced he was going to buy Twitter for more than it was worth. He was going to make structural changes to Twitter and said he would allow Donald Trump to return.
A lot of Americans struggled with thought of the worlds riches man having control of that platform
Then we learned former Californian, was considering supporting Florida’s governor Ron DeSantis for President. The controversial governor signed “Don’t Say Gay” bill . Banning teachers in Florida, from holding classroom instruction about sexual orientation.
This summer, Musk’s personal life and business life went public.
His 18th year old transgender daughter, told the press she did not want to be related to her dad. She wrote a a short sentence to the court, explaining her request for the changes. “Gender Identity and the fact that I no longer live with or wish to be related to my biological father in any way, shape or form,” Musk has been vocal on Twitter regarding his opinions about preferred pronouns for transgender and nonbinary people.
We learned, Musk had twins with an employee of his companies last November. A few week later, Musk and Claire Boucher, the musician who performs as Grimes, had their second child via surrogate in December.
Errol Musk, the father of billionaire Elon Musk, recently revealed in an interview that he and his stepdaughter Jana Bezuidenhout had a girl in 2019 while she was still living with him.
A Billion Dollar Sense of Humor
Matt Levine of Bloomberg com says, Musk likes to pretend that he will acquire public companies. He seems to find this fun, and why not? When he pretends that he’ll buy a public company, it creates a big drama with him at the center of it. He gets to boss people around, mobilize legions of bankers and lawyers and financing sources and random hangers-on hoping to get the deal done, and then when he gets bored he can tell all those people to go home.
Musk offered to buy Twitter for 44 Billion, more that it was worth at the time. With Musk withdrawing his offer, the company is worth much less than 44 Billion and Twitter wants him to pay up.
Tesla is worth less than it did in April. However, it will be the courts who will decide which side will have the last laugh.
But wait! There more!
As far as we know, Elon Musk’s physical and mental health is sound.
So why is he entrusting his billions to a 34-year-old, Russian-born ex-professional gambler named Igor Kurganov. Mr. Kurganov spent some of the pandemic sleeping in Mr. Musk’s home, where they chatted late into the night about how the world’s richest person might use his fortune to help shape the planet through a giving strategy known as “effective altruism.”
Mr. Kurganov had no experience in finance or security but was suddenly a central figure in both areas for Mr. Musk. He had moved from London to Texas and replaced some of Mr. Musk’s protection detail with new hires of his own. He wants to leave him in charge of his charitable giving, dispersing funds from Mr. Musk’s vast private fortune, currently around $230 billion, as he sees fit.
Elon Musk presence of social media
Elon Musk is still highly regarded on social media. He is no longer bulletproof. no longer a mythical like person who will completely change the earth. He is simply a human being, a flawed father of nine, with twisted family members like the rest of us.
It would be wise for him to find a quiet place, out of the view of cameras and with no statements/comments on Social Media . But something tells me, ” He loves the night life, he’s got to boogie, on the disco round”
