We think everyone was reassured after this NY headline May 1, 2021 before the week’s rehearsals;

SNL offers cast members a 'safe space' if they're too triggered to perform with Elon Musk” -

He added, in explanation, that he is the first person with Asperger syndrome to host the show.

that explains a lot

P.A.T.H.E.T.I.C. !!!..

Musk is so crappy he even made Wario unfunny.

0 ( +2 / -2 )

Great fun. Great man.

Wokeness overload.

The casting choice brought criticism from those who felt the show was celebrating a man for his exorbitant wealth in a time of great inequality and a man who spread misinformation to his huge Twitter following as he downplayed the severity of the coronavirus crisis.

I reinvented electric cars

No you did not you disingenous clown. You simply started making them at a time when the United States was ready for them. You remember the GM EV1 but deny its existence in public to try and score a few popularity points on Twatter.

Wokeness overload.

What does this mean?

Musk is into some interesting stuff. I like the space focus in particular, but the tunneling equipment and cars are good, too. I don’t look to him for political guidance. SNL ... I keep thinking humor itself has changed into something unrecognizable to me.

It means that is in no way an accurate description of either Elon Musk as a person, our current situation or an accurate representation of anything that he has actually done or said.

overdramatic nonsense for the “woke” crowd to lap up. “A time of great inequality”? Seriously?

It means that is in no way an accurate description of either Elon Musk as a person, our current situation or an accurate representation of anything that he has actually done or said.

It is, though. Musk said that Covid would be gone by April last year, and that it would be nothing to worry about, even as half a million Americans have died. Has that happened?

“A time of great inequality”? Seriously?

Yes. Inequality is a serious problem in the US, and across the world. And SNL hosting someone whose wealth came from his father owning an apartheid mine is, as the kids say, a choice.
