Musk should be President, so everybody is scared of him.

Biden doesn't have a leg to stand on when it comes to criticising others about conflict of interest. Think Ukraine and China. Musk's motivations might be suspect, but he's a private citizen, not a president or vice-president of a national government.

amid questions over the Saudi acquisition of a stake in Twitter as part of the tycoon's blockbuster takeover.

Bidena and the administration need to take a harder stance with the brutal, feudal Saudi regime.

Not just with Twitter and Musk but with energy policy and the web of Saudi financing.

Payback for Musk telling people to vote Republican.

see? your refusal to accept the House loss and the still tied Senate (at best) is already causing all kind of crazy nonsense from Biden.

Biden feels emboldened now like he gained some type of mandate or something. need to finish counting those votes and announce those winners.

I mean, MAGA did just get trounced in the election. So he did get an anti-MAGA mandate.

did they really? I see 2 Senators that won, plus a runoff chance.

I dont see the votes counted in AZ or NV yet that could be 2 more.

why is that?

Yes, and the right as well as Musk will celebrate the victorious win of the House.

Typical of Biden and the likes to attack the character of anyone they see as a threat. Says more about his character than Musks. Moron indeed. A 12 year old could write this script.

If you want us to listen Mr President, tell us exactly what it is you don't like or think is wrong about what Musk is actually doing. Let the battle of ideas be the debate.

This Ad Hominem stuff is just weak. Sorry for the double dip folks!

Chinese President Xi is off to Saudi for a state visit in December to discuss a Chinese-Saudi oil alliance, similar to the one the Saudis have with Russia. The Saudis are considering selling a stake in Aramco to the Chinese, allowing yuan-denominated oil futures contracts and pricing some sales in yuan. None of which is good news for America's global hegemony. Expect a tidal wave of anti-Saudi propaganda in the corporate media over the next few weeks.

Standard left narrative targeting Musk, the Saudi's have stake in Twitter since 2011, so Dorsey is the one worthy scrutiny..

There has to be some concern and vetting when countries like Saudi and China become involved with a service like Twitter.

Nothing to do with any political party, just common precautions.

Now the left is concerned?

BS, they kick Trump off, but allow Kathy Griffin, Hillary and the Ayatollah to keep their accounts? Yeah, Musk is definitely understanding this and making finally the appropriate changes.

Quite right. all suspect foreign ties and connections should be properly investigated.

I am not on the left.

You don't think any country becoming involved with a sensitive business with massive amounts of personal data, or a military company should not be vetted.

This has nothing to do with my comment. Foreign countries were not part of Twitter before. You need to keep your emotions in check.

I am saying all foreign countries should be vetted. If they pass they can invest.

The Chinese are buying up companies and land and have to be monitored for their activities.

By ‘Biden and the likes’ I take it you mean politicians.

It’s what they do.

I’ll give you the enough credit to assume you are not insinuating it comes from only one side as that will not be taken seriously.

musks push for a freedom internet platform doesn’t go down well with democratic nations, just like undemocratic ones.

Musk is an appeaser....he folded on Ukraine telling them to negotiate with Putin and he betrayed the Taiwanese siding with Xi....all because he has business interests there...

As far as Twitter, I could care less - if he wants to turn it into a 4-chan-like far right fever swamp cesspool, that's up to him...its his money to lose...

I do agree with him on one thing; Elon Musk said Donald Trump should forget about running for president in 2024 and instead should “sail into the sunset,” 

He'll be sailing all right Elon...up the river to Rikers Island....ROFL...

EM has put himself in the crosshairs. Expect this type of attack to be relentless. Bit like poor Orange.

is worthy of being looked at," Biden said,

Unfortunately for Biden nothing he says is worth listening to !

Biden is a worthless geriatric and the USA deserves a president that capable of walking the talk without being constantly censored and backpeddled by everyone !
