    Ron Paul was also a racist lunatic likely on Russias payroll as well

    Mediocre white guys who learned politics from the bro internet sites LOVE Ron Paul. Libertarianism gives them an outlet for their racism.

    When I was 15 in a 10th grade Econ class, things like gold standard and fiscal austerity seemed like good ideas and then my brain continued to fully form and I realized only fucking morons would think that stuff is smart, so congrats Mr Knight!

    I am surprised that the type of guy who listens to “logistics podcasts” finds criticisms of the president from Jeff Bezos relevant.

    When the dude that actually went by the user name “the White Knight” on this very message board thinks you go overboard in your idolization of rich people, maybe you should listen.

    Exactly. Did he really think every Twitter user was real? Even if he knew about bots he had to know they were a big part of the platform. Either he’s stupid, lying, or both

    It both. It’s definitely both.

    There’s an Occam’s razor, very simple explanation, and Its that the stock market has tanked and he’s trying to get a better price…Tesla’s stock has fallen off a cliff as the broader market has sold off and assuming the Fed continues to tank asset prices the deal that’s been agreed to in principal.

    I think he’s backing out to renegotiate, but we shall see

    The bot question is important because it’s ammo to negotiate a lower price (my opinion).

    So you’re saying he went into a deal with Twitter not know the bot situation was a thing? Even if he underestimated the amount he would be the only person alive that wasn’t aware this was a huge issue.

    Seems like a thing a smart person would research if he were spending g $40 billion on a deal for but that’s me.

    The Occam’s Razor explanation is he is an attention whore that saw a fake deal he would never make to feed his fix. The bot issue is his out.

    Off some Tesla stock that’s it. Dude would be a con artist if daddy didn’t own a diamond mine

    No actually I think he did…but he’s looking for justification to renegotiate since the market has tanked. Twitter represents the number is 5% bots but if he can create doubt or that the number is closer to 20% he can get a better deal.

    Twitter obviously would not want this to come to light, someone is getting sued by advertisers if that’s actually the case (another reason to get Twitter at a cheaper price).

    This isn’t an Elon-Stan post by the way, just an analysis of incentives for each side

    It comes from our starting point. I don’t feel that rich people are smart becomes they are rich. I think being born into privilege a more a luck of the draw in one sense but being born white helps quite a bit. I think Musk got lucky and has no real intelligence other than high level marketing and an ability to grift. If he didn’t know about bots on Twitter then he upholds everything I just said about him.

    You seem to constantly look to give him passes like he is playing some long game, and if that’s your thought process, nothing I say will change your mind. Just don’t say you aren’t stanning for Musk, because you constantly do. Sorry if this is the first time someone told you that.

    What you do is the same line of thinking that people had for Trump early on. “He’d make a great President because he’s a great businessman.” Now we know that both were never true, but those that understood early on didn’t have enough voice.

    He literally has a contract that has 0 provisions based on current stock price. He waived his due diligence. He can't just renegotiate

    This is also another hilarious part people will ignore. He claimed he was doing this as some kind of valiant effort to allow racists to run wild on the platform. As if money wasn’t an issue… hmmmmmm seems like a grift to me

    This is reverse engineering and the inevitable outcome you are ignoring: he was never going to go through with the purchase. Also, the market hasnt "tanked" unless you have a very GOP definition of that word.

    I was about to say. What’s his definition of tanked and what is the timeline he is working under in that context.
