Jon Favreau was former president Barack Obama’s top speechwriter. He left government and founded a liberal media company called Crooked Media. He was not happy Elon Musk publicly said he would no longer vote or support Dem politicians.

Musk said: “In the past, I voted Democrat because they were (mostly) the kindness party. But they have become the party of division & hate, so I can no longer support them and will vote Republican. Now, watch their dirty tricks campaign against me unfold.”

Jon Favreau said: “Hey man, if you want to support a bunch of electric vehicle-hating climate deniers, that’s on you. Not sure it helps the cause that you and your team have dedicated much of your lives to, but I guess you’ll get some attention on Twitter, so there’s that!”

Musk: “Hi Jon! You’re a good dude, but obv die-hard Dem, so have to support the party, but this Adminstration has done everything it can to sideline & ignore Tesla, even though we have made twice as many EVs as rest of US industry combined.”

Favreau: “I know you’re mad that the guy who was part of a White House that made Tesla possible isn’t giving Tesla enough love now, but supporting climate-denying MAGA politicians who want to overturn elections isn’t the answer. 

“You’re much closer to Dems on climate and I hope democracy.”

Musk: “I’ve just switched from moderate D to moderate R, as I think many independent voters have done. 

“We will know the magnitude of this trend in November. I think it’s big.”

A Twitter user chimed in with:

“The point that Jon makes regarding government playing a crucial role in making Tesla, is not true. 

“Yes, Tesla did receive an energy efficiency loan from govt in 2010 but so did many car companies like GM & Chrysler.

“It was actually the Daimler investment in 2009 that was crucial.”

Musk said: “Correct.”

The Twitter user said:

“And of all the US car companies that received the loan, only Tesla has repaid the full loan amount with full interest.”
