Yes. Elon also does not understand what’s going on. I guess there’s no way he could. Whatever. If he opens up Twitter for The Second World Meme War then his purpose is served well enough.

I don’t think he was trying to blame Trump for being divisive. He is just saying that as a matter of fact. Trump is divisive because the media has made it so. I think Elon sees very clearly how the media manipulates people and takes that into account.

I'm sure he does. My guess is he didn't support either Trump or Biden in the last election but would have supported a "moderate" like Tulsi Gabbard.

He's not some evil cunniving leftist that people sometimes say he is. He simply has a more liberal worldview and genuinely believes things like climate change or the Ukraine war. On the other hand he also sees how free speech is being eroded, and is doing something about that.

If the media gets to decide which candidates are divisive (always true Republicans it seems) then I don't consider it to be a factor worth considering.

I get that Elon is trying to be diplomatic as the Twitter purchase is processed, but I wish he'd just continue his usual candor.

Trump is divisive because the media has made it so.

Then doesn't that mean it isn't Trump, but the media that is the divisive ones?

The media painted Donald Trump as a divisive figure by lying. Donald Trump in a vacuum is not divisive. If everything he said was reported accurately a lot more people would support him.

My point is that he is divisive. In Elon’s comment the genesis of that divisiveness is not a factor. It’s just a fact that Trump as a politician is now a very divisive name.

My point is that it isn't him, but the media that is divisive. Full Stop. No need to go further.

They painted him as such, they did this, they did that - they are the divisive ones. Not who they target. Who they target is varied, they are the only constant in all the division.

It is also my opinion(so you know how much that is worth..lol) that when we let the media and left get away with this slander and libel without correction, when we accept their terms and phrases, when we are willing to throw someone under the bus because the divisive ones have targeted them... then we fail, and I think history is very clear about that.

I agree with you on everything. I just think Elon’s take was less of a shot at Trump and more of a general observation of public perception of Trump.

Elon’s too smart to not see what the MSM has done to Trump. He’s the only big time CEO that’s a legit genius IMO. Gates, Bezos etc are just lucky government pawns.

lol he understands. He's the richest man in the world. Him and all the global elites want to go back to how it was with Bush & Obama where no one actually called out the bullshit going on.

Trump totally was divisive, though, just not the way people claim.

He was divisive because he shined the spotlight on the political class and how they use the media as their propaganda arm. They reaaaaaally didn't like that and attacked him, so he punched back and brought his army of supporters into the fight with him.

That's very divisive, but not in a bad way. When there's bad shit happening and some people support it and others are trying to stop it, that's extremely divisive and should be.

Think about abortion. It's a very divisive issue to even talk about. Because one side wants to kill babies and the other wants to save them. We shouldn't avoid the topic just because it's divisive.

We should fucking crush them and their idiotic satanic ideology. Trump understood this and didn't shy away from it on any topic.

Bring on the divisiveness IMO.

He has to keep selling Teslas to leftists. He's not perfect, but he knows how to juggle his audience and Truth Social will continue to be a hub of more and more Trump supporters as a result.

Gotta ask the question: who created the drama in the first place? Fuck negotiating with the terrorists that call themselves "the media".

They started a coup attempt against him before he was even elected. That's divisive.

But I want divisive. I want to separate from all leftists entirely. I will never unify with them.

EmperorT 2 points ago +2 / -0

Yup. Trump was "divisive" and yet secured more moderate and moderate-left support than any republican in recent history. People were/are tired of the old class of RINO reach-across-the-aisle bullshit. I only hope Trump hasn't totally forgotten that's what got him elected in the first place.

Elon is still on a journey. The difference between him and the of his leftist peers is he is at least willing to let those he disagrees with speak

Definition of controlled opposition.

Elon does not believe what the majority of people here believe.

Do not think this man is your ally.

He wants immortal humans through brain computer interfaces and buys into the lie of "global warming"

He's built his fortune on the lie of "teh planet is dying because humans are evil"

Yes and this gas crisis caused by Democrats is a pretty sweet deal for him.

TheTPL 1 point ago +1 / -0

He doesn't buy AGW in the sense that some think of it. He's practical, he's stated that you can't stop oil production or even magically stop all emissions because everything would grind to a halt and we'd all die. Regardless of AGW theory, he's practical about it and isn't an extremist, he possesses common sense.

superwookee 1 point ago +1 / -0

He's not an ally and nothing you said makes him an ally.

He believes or at least has massively profited from the lie of "Climate Change"

If a famous man believes in 1% of what you believe is he truly your friend?

Pragmatism means he will side with those that help him. It's selfish ambition and nothing more.

BIDEN WAS A DIVISIVE THUG ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL.

Anyone trying to figure out what Elon thinks from this tweet is wasting their time. This is the middle of the road answer anyone would make in his position.

All that matters is freedom of speech is slowly coming back.

Too little too late? Maybe. But at least it's a start.

"Everyone?" Nah, the IC and the Uni-party installed Bidet by cheating in every way possible, to do exactly what he's doing to the energy industry and in Ukraine.

Hey Elon.

Instead of Twitter, buy Dominion

I haven't heard "Ways of hacking Teslas" or "Ways of Hacking Starlink".

A less divisive candidate? Name one? Any Republican nominee would be called racist, nazi, etc. I thought Musk was a genius. This is a shit take.

Will 2 points ago +2 / -0

If we nominated a less divisive candidate they would immediately be made divisive by media and big tech. They've called every republican president a Nazi since Reagan. They said mitt would put them all back in chains and now he licks their shoes. Even Trump was a media darling before he put an R next to his name.

Less drama just means the media doesn't hype up nonstop bullshit stories with their preferred politicians. It's a reflection on the media's bias more than the president. How has "less drama" been for the country in the first year?

Five times as many covid deaths (trump was considered personally responsible for every one while in office), record inflation, record gas prices with continued cancellations of domestic oil/pipelines, we have no southern border, record illegal immigration and nobody reporting on crying kids being stuffed in cages anymore despite way more, soaring violent crime, foreign war that eats money like a black hole, disastrous Afghanistan withdrawal which trump would have been impeached for if it went down the same way under his term. It's basically endless drama but it's "less drama" because the media is not concerned if it doesnt involve trump or carrying water for their politicians. Same way how they report on rioting and protests completely differently depending on what it's about or who's doing it.

Democrats tweet about taking up arms and fighting is not drama or divisive or inciteful.

This is one of the first M.O's I noticed with the left.

The lefty mobs will show up, cause chaos, leave the place in shambles and then the media swoops in and slowly starts telling the people the amount of division and confusion and chaos they see is because the politician causes such yadda, yadda, yadda.....

Its all Kabuki theatre

What is divisive about Trump? The fact he told the morons that are against his proven to have worled policies they were morons? How about more of that? How about every bureaucrat in the federal government gets fired cause clearly they don't know what they are doing!
