Earlier this week, NBC News “dystopia beat” senior reporter Ben Collins suggested that Twitter under Elon Musk could become a hotbed of violence and lead to activity on the same level as the January 6 riots.

Collins was effectively suggesting that Elon Musk is a threat to U.S. national security. You might think that sounds ridiculous, but if you’re Joe Biden, you’re more than willing to entertain the idea:


Questioner: “Do you think Elon Musk is a threat to U.S. national security, and should the U.S., and with the tools you have, investigate his joint acquisition of Twitter with foreign governments, which include the Saudis?”

Biden: (laughing to himself) “I think that Elon Musk’s cooperation and/or technical relationships with other countries is worthy of being looked at. Whether or not he is doing anything inappropriate, I’m not suggesting that. I’m suggesting that at worst, worth being looked at. Um, and uh, um, and, uh, that’s all I’ll say.”

Before we go any further, it’s worth noting that Biden’s White House can’t be all that concerned about tech threats to national security. At least Biden hosting TikTok stars late last month would suggest that they’re not all that concerned about it.

There’s also this:

Leaving that totally aside, Biden’s remarks are just straight-up disturbing.

That’s putting it mildly.

In any event, Elon Musk should probably start sleeping with one eye open.
