Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, replied on Monday to former President Donald Trump’s characterization of him as a “bulls*** artist.” His proposal would prevent both Trump and President Joe Biden from running in 2024.
“I don’t hate the man, but it’s time for Trump to hang up his hat & sail into the sunset,” Musk wrote on Twitter. “Dems should also call off the attack — don’t make it so that Trump’s only way to survive is to regain the Presidency.”

Joe “Pags” Pagliarulo, host of a conservative talk station, disagreed with Musk and enumerated numerous of Trump’s successes. Musk commented on his opinions in response.
“Yeah, but too much drama,” Musk wrote. “Do we really want a bull in a china shop situation every single day!? Also, I think the legal maximum age for start of Presidential term should be 69.”

Musk’s most recent remarks were clearly directed at Trump, but it is difficult to overlook their applicability to Biden. He is older than Trump by more than three years and will be 80 later this year.
Biden will be 81 years old before the 2024 election, and he will become 82 before the start of his next term.
If Musk believes that a 70-year-old is too old to run for office, one would assume he would be much more opposed to a candidate who is almost 12 years older.

Plenty of Americans feel Biden is unfit for office, as evidenced by his abysmal approval ratings. According to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released Tuesday, his overall approval rating sits at 39 percent.
While there are many factors leading to Americans’ disapproval of Biden, his age is a large one. Even leftist columnist Michelle Goldberg of The New York Times wrote in an opinion piece on Monday that Biden should not run again. CONTINUE READING…
