Elon Musk Hilariously Busts Biden on 'His' Twitter Account and Taxes

Elon Musk certainly has made Twitter much more fun just by allowing speech that would have been stomped on in the past.

He also hasn’t been shy about challenging the powers that be and, with the Twitter Files, revealing the efforts of Twitter 1.0 and the government to help control speech and push narratives. For that, he’s been maliciously attacked by Democrats and other people on the left who don’t want to upset the apple cart of their power.

Musk also has a great sense of humor which he showed again on Saturday when he took on Joe Biden over what was tweeted from Biden’s Twitter account.

Biden’s account tweeted this anti-rich person screed.

“It’s about time the super-wealthy start paying their fair share,” the account said. It’s something that Biden does often say to justify raising taxes so he can spend more, although, naturally, there’s a problem with it, as the Tax Foundation explains.

Here’s a chart showing the top one percent pay about 40 percent of the taxes.

That’s despite the fact that they make 20 percent of the money. So they are paying twice their “fair share.” Half of the taxpayers pay 97 percent of the share of taxes. The bottom 50 percent of taxpayers pay just under three percent. So Biden’s claim is way out of whack with reality.

Elon Musk, who earned his own money, is super wealthy, and has paid a ton in taxes, had a reply to Biden that was just hilarious and so on point.

“Please give him the password, so he can do his own tweets. Please, I’m begging you!” Elon joked.

We all know that Biden is not in control of his Twitter account, especially not if the tweets are coming after his bedtime. If he had control of his account, all those mistakes/confusion that we see in real life every day would be all over Twitter as well. We’d have him weirdly talking about men’s biceps or other strange things. So that’s never going to happen. But it’s fun that Musk is willing to call out their management of Biden.

Then he also busted Biden/the folks behind Biden’s account with a little fact check when it came to the taxes comment.

In all seriousness, I agree that we should make elaborate tax-avoidance schemes illegal, but acting upon that would upset a lot of donors, so we will see words, but no action.

Those who will actually be forced to carry the burden of excess government spending are lower to middle income wage earners, as they cannot escape payroll tax.

Right on target. Not to mention that it’s Biden’s excessive spending that ballooned inflation to excessive heights that we hadn’t seen in 40 years.

So if Biden truly cared about the middle class as he claims, he wouldn’t be looking to impose more taxes. But this shtick about the rich is just typical class warfare while they continue to soak the little guy so they can further increase government and their power.
