Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, sat down with The Babylon Bee in a broad-ranging interview that premiered Tuesday.
“This is not a joke,” the satirical site wrote. “Elon Musk sat down with Babylon Bee CEO Seth Dillon, EIC Kyle Mann, and Creative Director Ethan Nicolle for an in-depth interview on wokeness, Elizabeth Warren, taxing the rich, the Metaverse, which superhero Elon would be, and how the left is killing comedy.”
He tacked the woke Left: “Wokeness wants to make comedy illegal…do we want a humorless society that is rife with hate and condemnation?…It gives mean people a shield to be mean.”
Musk joked that one of the Bee’s articles that Gov. Gavin Newsom’s is a U-Haul salesman of the year is “actually true,” calling California the “land of overregulation, overlitigation, overtaxation, and scorn.”
At one point he said he was “not perverted enough” to be on CNN instead of the Bee.
On Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) attacking him on taxes, he said, “If you could die by irony, she would be dead.”
