Elon Musk Trolls Dmitry Medvedev After He Posts Wild Predictions, the Left Loses It

We’ve spoken in the past about how some folks seem to use Twitter, often at night, to make embarrassing rants. Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) is one prime example of this problem. Unfortunately, he doesn’t have anyone who cares enough about him in his family or on his staff to tell him to stop or to rein him in. So we get embarrassing things like his comment on Christmas Eve about Jan. 6 and the National Guard which showed how members of the Jan. 6 Committee are just farcically ignorant about the facts or trying to push bull on people who they think might not know any better.


But I’m not sure what was going on with this Twitter thread of predictions from former Russian president Dmitry Medvedev, who is now the Deputy Chair of the Security Council of the Russian Federation. He said that on New Year’s Eve, people are often making predictions for the coming year so these were his offerings. They are, in a word, wacky.

What can happen in 2023:

1. Oil price will rise to $150 a barrel, and gas price will top $5.000 per 1.000 cubic meters

2. The UK will rejoin the EU

3. The EU will collapse after the UK’s return; Euro will drop out of use as the former EU currency

4. Poland and Hungary will occupy western regions of the formerly existing Ukraine

5. The Fourth Reich will be created, encompassing the territory of Germany and its satellites, i.e., Poland, the Baltic states, Czechia, Slovakia, the Kiev Republic, and other outcasts

6. War will break out between France and the Fourth Reich. Europe will be divided, Poland repartitioned in the process

7. Northern Ireland will separate from the UK and join the Republic of Ireland

8. Civil war will break out in the US, California. and Texas becoming independent states as a result. Texas and Mexico will form an allied state. Elon Musk’ll win the presidential election in a number of states which, after the new Civil War’s end, will have been given to the GOP

9. All the largest stock markets and financial activity will leave the US and Europe and move to Asia

10. The Bretton Woods system of monetary management will collapse, leading to the IMF and World Bank crash. Euro and Dollar will stop circulating as the global reserve currencies. Digital fiat currencies will be actively used instead


Medvedev finished off with an insult to the “Anglo-Saxon” West, “Season greetings to you all, Anglo-Saxon friends, and their happily oinking piglets!”

Yikes. Too much adult libation? Too many of the wrong medications? Whatever it was it wasn’t going over well. I’ll have to admit his prediction for the result of an American civil war with Musk ending up being president is certainly creative. Texas and Mexico becoming one? There’s so much in there that wouldn’t happen one has to think that somehow this was some form of joke, but so far I’m not seeing any clarification that he isn’t just being nuts or posting agitprop to tick people off. More than a little disconcerting when you have a Russian official tweeting such insanity.

But what set some on the left off was Twitter head Elon Musk responded, “Epic thread!” to Medvedev.

Now, it’s essential to understand that “epic thread” in internet-speak means someone just said something incredibly stupid that is going to have a lot of people talking. So it’s not a compliment to the thread, quite the contrary. If anything, it’s an encouragement to pile and tweet about how ridiculous Medvedev’s thread is.


But as with so many other things, the left didn’t get it and then started claiming that Musk must be a Russian asset. But if he were a Russian asset, why would he have given Starlink to both Ukraine to help the Ukrainians? Just one of the many reasons that idea is ridiculous. But as we’ve seen in the past, the left thinks everyone they don’t like is a Russian asset.

Meanwhile, Musk continued to mock Medvedev’s thread, even as the left continued to go over a cliff, not understanding what he was saying (or caring to get it right).

Of course, Musk, while an American citizen, was born in South Africa so he couldn’t possibly become President, which is just one of the many problems with Medvedev’s farcical thread.

Warning for language:

This wasn’t the first time that Musk had trolled Medvedev, taunting him in the past about Russia not doing well in Bakhmut at the time in October.

But the left is the left because they have difficulty with reality and they just would rather hate anyone they think doesn’t support their narrative.
