MSNBC Guest Calls Musk Man-Child, Says Existence Of Billionaires 'Inconsistent With Democracy' An MSNBC contributor says that the existence of billionaires is a “policy choice” that is “antithetical” to democracy, and called Elon Musk a man-child.

I don't think anybody would say Elon Musk is a normal 51-year-old man, who has bought this platform that he himself calls a global Town Square, certainly functions has that kind of social importance,” he continued.

His limitations become all our problem.” Watch: As the Daily Caller notes: Giridhardas also criticized Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, who announced he would be giving away most of his fortune, over planned layoffs at the online retail giant, and CEO Samuel Bankman-Fried of the collapsed cryptocurrency exchange FTX, who was a donor to Democratic causes and officials.

Unlike some of these other guys he doesn't do a very good job of pretending that he's for the public benefit,” Giridharadas continued.

“He certainly ran on a campaign of smashing the system in 2016, but – but he is very nakedly revealing what I think is true of this group in general, which is that their existence as – as billionaires is sort of antithetical to our flourishing as a democracy.” May the odds be ever in your favor.
