Does anyone watch SNL anyymore?

0 ( +4 / -4 )

SNL did it at least twice before: Apr 3, 2004 and again, Nov 7, 2015.

- “SNL” doesn't make a habit of having business executives host its show” -

Their former host was quoted:

- “Nobody’s bigger than me, nobody’s better than me: I’m a ratings machine.”

“That evening of public abasement, rather than sending him away, accelerated his ferocious efforts to gain stature in the political world.”

Musk is a hell of a rich guy, a successful risk taker and a visionary but he's a dork when it comes to personality, and egads, comedy.

Oh boy, feeding his ginormous ego. Just what this narcissist needs.

The cult of personality around this guy is insane. He has one hell of a PR team working viral media stories to make him seem like something more than the average union busting, ego driven CEO who grew up as a rich kid with apartheid emerald mine money.

Musk is such a grifter. The PT Barnum of our time.

Why yea it is, thank you Elon.

“Tesla's stock is worth nearly six times more than it was before the pandemic started,”

He’s cute, rich, smart. I would leave my partner and live him on Mars if we have a swimming pool and jacuzzi.

You'd probably die.

Elon Musk is the John DeLorean of the 21st century. As above, a grifter and flim-flam artist, one might add psychopath. The U.S. federal government advanced him the means to establish Tesla, and his company has exploited numerous relationships with various government entities to the detriment of those bodies and its citizens. His weird libertarian pose ignores the facts of his success.

I am happy to contribute to any fund that will send him to Mars. Sooner the better.

Tesla, is at best a boutique brand, which will be buried by large concerns when they begin cranking out vehicles of similar & superior design. Musk's parasitical relationship with NASA will eventual fizzle, along with his weird fantasies about living outside the bounds of earth.

What is SNL?

I don't think he's going. He just wanted indentured servants, who he acknowledges will likely die on the journey (because his SpaceX company is trash), to do the work for him. Musk's biggest issue with apartheid was that it wasn't interplanetary, it seems.

Saturday Night Live is a US comedy show, shown live, on Saturday nights. It often features guest stars from media, and occasionally from politics or business. There are some good skits, but it's not the best. I recommend Late Night with Seth Meyers and The Amber Ruffin Show.

Living Colour and MAD TV were just so much better-period!
