Elon Musk is the richest man in the world. The billionaire sits at the top of Forbes real-time billionaires list with a net worth of $228.8 billion. Musk is known for his “erratic tweets” and his occasional outburst on social media.
The Tesla founder has been at odds with President Joe Biden and the White House for some time. He recently hurled a series of insults towards America’s top executive over a perceived White House diss.
The colorful remarks came amid Musk’s exclusion from a technology summit at the White House, which saw top leaders – including GM and Ford’s chief executives – in attendance. The companies are producing electric vehicles under Biden’s “Build Back Better” initiative.
President Biden praised the companies for their efforts aimed at promoting a green and sustainable future, something which Tesla boss took as a direct diss. Musk took to Twitter to hurl a series of insults towards the president, saying, “Biden is treating the American public like fools.” He also referred to the POTUS as “a damp [sock] puppet in human form.”
His tweet got thousands of retweets and likes. Many sided with Musk, with one user tweeting a meme of Biden being controlled by puppet strings. The Space X founder, of course, found it hilarious.
