Why doesn't he just embrace MAGA?
He's already a dick, is he convinced someone out there believes he's not a dick?
I mean he knows his fanboys love him being a dick right?

I want to buy an electric car. I originally thought I'd buy a Tesla, even knowing that Elon is a dick, but at some point Elon got to be enough of a Republican dick that I said "fark this, I'm not gonna give that prick any of my money" and I'm now looking at ordering a BMW i4 M50 instead.  I would think that much of the electric car buying demographic feels similarly, and he knows that going full MAGAt would hurt Tesla sales.

My guess is that most of his customers probably lean left... and does not want to piss them off.

Also joining MAGA means he would be a follower, not a leader. He may not be able to run for president but other than that he's not to stand behind anyone. He thinks MAGA should be joining him.

Tesla owners are middle aged white men who make around 150,000 per year

https://hedgescompany.com/blog/2018/11/tesla-owner-demographics/

Isn't that demographic mostly Republican, Independents who vote Republican and Proud Moderate Democrats

Even CNN says Tesla owners are more Republican than you think

I should also confess that I own some Tesla stock. About, I dunno, 8 years ago or so I bought 100 shares at $45/ share, which has now split 5-for-1 so that I now own 500 shares currently valued at around $900 per share (after being at $1200/share earlier). I do want to sell the TSLA shares so I have nothing to do with that prick, but I'm waiting for an opportune time. I think it would be fitting to use some of the profit to buy an electric BMW.

There are nicer electric cars competing with Tesla on the market now if you are on the fence about supporting this guy's company. First to market is definitely not always the winner.

Tesla owners are pretty equally split between boomers and younger tech bros around here. I consider both groups to be conservative unless proven otherwise.

Yep. For example, the BMW i4 is priced like a Model 3 but seems much nicer, the Lucid Air is priced like the Model S but blows it away, and then of course for a different crowd there's the Ford F-150 Lightning which seems like a real game-changer.  Of course there a long waiting lists currently for all of these while one can buy a Tesla and drive it home today.

Never once have I assumed Tesla owners were anything but right wingers. Thanks for doing the leg work to prove my feelings.

I see a Chevy Bolt: probably not a republican - a toyota hybrid - probably a normal person

Tesla people are basically just BMW people - sorry beemer lovers, but y'all drive like dicks and getting a Tesla didn't change that you drive like dicks.

Right. Because he's completely unsavvy when it comes to social media and had absolutely no idea that willingly posing for selfies with attendees at said party might result in pictures ending up online. This wasn't at all an intentional bit of attention whoring designed as something to both distract and at the same time keep his name in the current news cycle. Boy, what a moron for making such an amateur mistake. He's really got egg on his face this time.

He already has, he just hasn't outright said it.

So he doesn't need to announce it, he just shows it through words and actions.

Bzzzt.  WRONG.

There are waiting lists for Teslas, especially the Model Y.  We ordered one almost exactly a year ago and finally took delivery May 28.

Until other manufacturers take fast charging seriously, or the government regulates/mandates it, Tesla will remain the top EV.  I'm beginning to hate Elon but our two Teslas are great cars.  I really, really hope solid competition will arise.

Mukster: Should have bought twitter when he had the chance. Could have blocked all those tweets.


The Twitter scam was just an excuse to liquidate all his Tesla stock holding to "buy" Twitter. Then the deal is off and he has to pay Twitter some earnest money that is a fraction of what his penalties would have been for dumping all that stock.

Tesla is going to plunge in proportion to every other vehicle maker in the world rolling out electric fleets.

And people still think The Government (music sting) can pull off an inside-job 9/11 or conceal Obama's REAL berf sertifikit or have millions murdered by the Clintons (sometimes twice*) or falsify vaccination stats or global temperature/CO2 trends.

Things that take much more time and planning than "attend a party", not to mention many more people, and somehow ALLLLLLLLLLLLL of those people stay tight-lipped forever.

* google "Gandy Baugh" - he was allegedly murdered by The Clintons in 1994, then again by Obama in 2002

If you're comfortable with your shares potentially being sold at or above their current price, why aren't you selling covered call options?  Even a well out of the money strike price could be getting you many hundreds of dollars per week per 100 shares you have. Since your cost basis is so low from buying long ago, you could even use some of your option income to buy a much much lower put option just as a backup in case the company cratered to zero overnight or something, and still be making hundreds per week while simultaneously insuring your already existing gains.

And it's coming.  He has multiple non-disparage/lying about cases he lost from the FEC and he recently went all in with lies and disparaging with his recent TED Talk interview, plus the lawsuits, plus the Twitter fiasco.

He's gonna have some issues.

Which is why I think he's gone all in on the MAGA train and sucking up to republicans.

He's hoping to have all this shiat disappear if they gain power so he has hitched his train to them in the hopes that he won't lose everything.

Tesla Y ranks 4th out of 10 for fastest charging.

My buddy has a Nissan Leaf that does fast charging.

The should standardize it, but we know Tesla will fight that.

The thread is awesome. A lot of "He's telling RW people to be nice and 'get out of the bedroom' and telling LW people to 'get out of people's wallets' so he's a great guy!"

Has he said anything to any LW groups where he tried to hide he was there? I don't follow Elon news as it's usually farking vapid garbage so, I'm not aware where he's spending time at those kind of parties like he was at that kind of party.
