Wasn't so sure I should use the word "Amazing" in the title of this article, but, after careful consideration decided to keep it in, after all, the word amazing doesn't only apply to successes, as Elon Musk so clearly demonstrates, it equally applies to failures.
$44 Billion Elon paid for Twitter, ....Yet Trump created a Twitter copy for a tiny fraction of that, $millions not billions to create Truth Social.
Trump acolyte Jason Miller(CEO of Gettr) created Twitter copy Gettr.....And Ye(Kanye West) I think bought Parler, or is buying Parler, although no price has been disclosed..
Oct 17 (Reuters) - American rapper Kanye West, who now goes by Ye, has agreed in principle to buy Parler, the social media platform popular among U.S. conservatives, parent company Parlement Technologies said on Monday.
Nashville-based Parler, which has raised about $56 million to date, said it expects the deal to close during the fourth quarter of 2022. It did not give a deal value.
Suffice to say...Ye ain't spending anywhere near even a $billion for Parler..
The point i'm making..Elon Musk, could have created another Twitter knock-off, a real good knock off for a few $billion dollars...But he didn't..Why..
Elon Musk, if he hadn't been in such a rush to own Twitter before the 2022 midterms he could have acquired Twitter for half that amount, but no, he publicly blurted out a platinum Cadillac price of $44 Billion... That's one hell of a price to owns the Libs and Democrats on Twitter..
First Elon Musk blathered(Tweeted he was now a Republican)..Then he told his 100 plus million followers to vote Republican and Elon was still not done...He just brought back Donald Trump to Twitter, Elon is also reinstating many high-profile rightwing accounts known for hyperbolic bullshit, lies and misinformation..
This part of my article looks at Elon Musk's "Amazing" feats that go both ways....
Elon put Trump in sort of a no-win-situation....Truth Social is already a boring echo chamber, who's stock price has crashed from over $100 dollars to $21 dollars...
If Trump leaps back to Twitter...Truth Social dies, if Elon allows all the misinformation spewers back on, along with Trump...Truth Social...Gab..Parler...Gettr all die...Well, not much growth for sure...So, in that aspect it's a shrewd business move, and I love the fact Trump was given the choice, burn Truth Social and it's investors by migrating back to Twitter or stay put at Truth Social with a way smaller audience......Delcious.
Now, Back to Elon Musk paying $44 billion to own the Libs and Democrats...Well
Republicans lost near every big election, lost Governorships, every state attorney race, lost the Senate, election deniers kicked to the curb...and as a bonus..Tesla stock has lost a fortune in a very short time..
Tesla Stock price...From one year ago to today....A year ago, Tesla was trading at $399.93...Today Teslsa closed at $167.87...
Now, I don't own a Tesla, or an electric vehicle, however, I am thinking about buying one...And Tesla will not be included in my choices....Politics matter and CEOs should keep the fuck out of it, stay in their own lanes...Pretty sure Elon Musk was anticipating favorable tax treatment if there had been a redwave..
Elon Musk is Amazing, $44 billion to own the Libs and promote Trump....At the exact same time Big Mega donor Republicans, and Big Dark Conservative money has given the order to dump Trump..
Not only that..Have you heard the latest?
Not only Mega Donors are dumping Trump...But now Evangelical leaders are dumping Trump, not because they are against Trump's lies, bullshit, hatred, no, the Evangelicals love da Trump, however, they too know Trump can't deliver another win...Trump lost 2018...2020 and 2022 midterms the GOP went backwards..They have tired of losing..They're moving on from trump
Big money gone...Evangelicals gone, Trump is left with nothing but the MAGA redneck hillbilly base, without the money, and without the White Nationalist vote....Trump is done...Evangelicals are moving on to Ron Desantis....Younger, smarter, just as devious, he's the man to push the Evangelical agenda forward.
Influential evangelical Christians have turned against Trump after his 2024 announcement, report says
“Donald Trump can’t save America,” Mike Evans told The Washington Post. “He can’t even save himself.”
Evans was part of a group of evangelicals who met with Trump at the White House, and at one point gave him an award.
Now, he says he’s done with Trump.
“He used us to win the White House. We had to close our mouths and eyes when he said things that horrified us,” Evans told the newspaper. “I cannot do that anymore.”
