Elon Musk has taken nothing but heat for a while, but he had an ally Friday night — one Bill Maher.
Elon appeared one-on-one with the ‘Real Time’ host, and Bill was more than complimentary. He essentially said, like him or not, Elon Musk is changing the world in profound ways.
As Bill says, the most transformative things in society have come from technology … the printing press, the light bulb, the phone, the internet, flying, and on and on.
BM gave Elon mad props for his work with reusable rockets, electric cars, the Neuralink, just to mention a few.
Elon was actually funny in the interview, getting laughs and applause from the audience.
As for Twitter, Musk explained he bought the platform because it was censoring too much. As he said, it’s easy to allow speech you agree with — the point of free speech is to allow people to make remarks you may find abhorrent … presumably still within limits.
They get into cancel culture, politics, the works.
