Elon Musk has a history of not following through. It’s past time media stop giving him the benefit of the doubt. Let’s review his past pledges and what happened. #ElonsProblems Musk said he’d save the Thai cave boys. His device was impractical and dismissed as a “PR stunt.” He then tried to label the guy who saved the boys a “pedo.”

Elon Musk wants attention so let’s give it to him. Black employees at Tesla claim they were segregated. Frequently called the n-word. Called “monkeys” by managers. The only ones made to clean and forced to do so on their hands & knees. And Tesla retaliated when they complained. latimes.com/business/story…

New from me: “How is it that despite #MeToo, despite several high-profile public reckonings, despite years of more data and hindsight, these educators have learned nothing?

To the Harvard 38: Do better.”

I want to know why @nytimes and their political editor @halbfinger refuse to cover the story of Neil Gorsuch speaking at a closed to press partisan Federalist Society event (with Pence, DeSantis, and McEnany). A total dereliction of duty. Here are the google search results…nothing from @nytimes…it’s indefensible. What is going on?? google.com/search?q=neil+…

NEW: Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch will speak at a Florida Federalist Society event featuring Mike Pence, Ron DeSantis & Kayleigh McEnany. Total corruption.

Meanwhile Republicans claim Biden pledging to nominate a Black woman is “politicizing” the Court. Absolutely absurd. Any comment @gtconway3d?

There has never been a Black woman on the Supreme Court, but there have been over 60 white men without a law degree. time.com/91646/the-most… Image

Trump’s SCOTUS shortlist excluded Black women entirely, but nobody in media seemed to care or point that out. Also the below tweet is absolutely disgusting…if anyone has a conflict in the Harvard admissions case — it’s Brett Kavanaugh.

Here’s why: thecrimson.com/article/2022/1…

“Even a $50 ticket for jaywalking can trigger the $300 surcharge, said @ZalKShroff, senior racial justice attorney at the @lccrsf of the San Francisco Bay Area, which is bringing the case along with the ACLU Foundation of Northern California…”

This is @Spotify CEO Daniel Ek. This is who is choosing to profit over deadly COVID lies. He flies under the radar compared to Zuckerberg, Musk, etc.

Make him famous for all the wrong reasons. Image Rogan isn’t just a COVID liar, he is known for making racist, transphobic, sexist, and Islamophobic comments. I guess that’s all the Spotify brand has going for it.

🚨BREAKING: @JaneMayerNYer reports that, behind closed doors, Justice Clarence Thomas’s wife is working with many groups directly involved in controversial cases before the Court.

NEW: Justice Sotomayor has diabetes which puts her at serious risk re: COVID.

Chief Justice Roberts asked all justices to wear masks.

Gorsuch has refused, forcing Sotomayor to work remotely.

Absolutely shameful.

Also, Roberts should’ve made Gorsuch work remote instead of her. It’s a Persian name (pr: KY-Vahn), thanks for asking!

The Manchin family is known for corruption. When he was Governor of West Virginia, West Virginia University altered his daughter Heather Bresch’s transcripts to retroactively award her an MBA she did not earn. Bresch is famous for the EpiPen price gouging scandal. google.com/amp/s/www.busi…

Very sorry for what they experienced at the Capitol, but journalists on the scene begging Mark Meadows to stop the Capitol insurrection seems like a story the American people had a right know 11 months ago. For those responding…I’m not talking about the Fox News talking heads…I’m talking about the mainstream DC press…have to assume Jake was not the only one… (which makes mainstream media’s coverage of this attack even harder to justify.)

Trump used his personal cell phone as president despite it being an explicit security risk, but of course POLITICO is out criticizing VP Harris for taking security precautions and avoiding Bluetooth. “But still, should someone who travels with the nuclear football be spending time untangling her headphone wires?" Is an actual quote in the POLITICO story accusing VP Harris of “Bluetooth phobia” 🤦🏽‍♂️

Mike Pence’s chief counsel, domestic policy adviser, chief of staff, and press secretary all left by the end of his first year.

Media didn’t question his “leadership style.”

They are treating VP Harris differently because D.C. press is mostly white men and she is a black woman. 🧾🧾🧾

Within the last 8 days, @Twitter has let multiple Republican members of Congress violate its rules on violence. Gaetz & Boebert discussed blowing up Capitol metal detectors. Gosar shared a video depicting himself killing AOC. No consequences, just engagement. Shame on you, @jack. Taking no action is just as political or perceivably partisan a decision as taking action (doing the right thing).

THREAD: it’s time for the media to admit Bernie cost Hillary the election. “Medicare-for-all will never happen if we continue to elect corporate Democratic whores who are beholden to big pharma and the private insurance industry instead of us,” shouted Dr. Paul Song, speaking at a rally for 2016 Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
