World’s richest man and potential Twitter owner Elon Musk blasted President Joe Biden during a recent podcast interview, saying the real power of the presidency resides with the person operating Joe’s teleprompter.
“The real president is whoever controls the teleprompter,” Musk said. “The path to power is the path to the teleprompter….I do feel like if somebody were to accidentally lean on the teleprompter, it’s going to be like Anchorman,” Musk added, referencing the 2004 film in which Will Ferrell’s character will read anything off the teleprompter.
Musk also complimented the previous administration for getting things done.
“This administration doesn’t seem to get a lot done,” Musk said. “The Trump administration, leaving Trump aside, there were a lot of people in the administration who were effective at getting things done.”

He also claimed that the Democratic Party is “overly controlled by the unions and by the trial lawyers, particularly the class action lawyers.” He argued that when Democrats go against “the interests of the people,” it tends to come from the unions and the trial lawyers, while when Republicans do that, “it’s because of corporate evil and religious zealotry.”
“In the case of Biden, he is simply too much captured by the unions, which was not the case with Obama,” Musk said. The Tesla CEO defended Obama as “quite reasonable,” but insisted that Biden prioritizes the unions ahead of the public.
