In a conversation on CNBC’s “Last Call,” Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and Twitter, made some pointed remarks about President Joe Biden, indicating his dissatisfaction with the current administration.
Musk affirms his belief that Biden won fairly in 2020
Musk affirmed his belief that Biden won the 2020 election fairly, “Do I believe Biden won? Yes, I believe he won.” When asked if he voted for Biden, he said, “I did.”
David Faber, the host, inquired if Musk regretted his decision.
Musk replied, “I mean, man, I wish we could just have a normal human being as president. That’s what I want. If we, you know, there’s an old saying of, we’re better off being wronged by people picked at random from the phone book than the faculty of Harvard”.
“I don’t know who said that, but it was somebody very wise. I would say, if we could do that for the president, that would be great”, Musk continued.

Musk suggests we all just want ‘a normal human being’
Responding to Faber’s suggestion that Musk seems dissatisfied with Biden’s performance, Musk rhetorically asked, “Don’t we all just want a normal human being?”
Musk then shared his perspective on the importance of executive abilities, especially in the role of president. “Some of these executive abilities are underrated. Since the president is the executive office of the country, it actually matters if they are the executive officer.”
He went on to stress that it’s not just about whether a president’s beliefs align with one’s own, but their effectiveness in executing duties is equally important.
Musk expressed, “It’s not simply a matter of do they share your beliefs but are they good at getting things done. There’s a lot of decisions that need to be made every day. Many of them are unrelated to moral beliefs. And you just want a good executive, the CEO of America.”
