Tesla CEO and SpaceX founder Elon Musk subtly threw shade at the Biden administration when he informed Tesla executives earlier this week that he had “super bad feeling” about the future of the US economy and that he may have to reduce the Tesla workforce by as much as 10% as a result.
But Biden, never one to take criticism lying down, returned fire, thanks to some handy-dandy notes. In a press conference Q&A on Friday that felt totally natural and not at all staged, Biden bragged about the encouraging job creation going on at Ford Motor Company.
He then seized his moment and wished Musk “lots of luck on his trip to the moon.”
Hey, the guy’s got jokes. Take a look:

It’s easy to deliver those zingers when you’re literally reading them off a script. So, credit to Biden’s writers for this one.
As good as the line is though, Biden won’t have the last laugh on this one. Musk has already responded in kind:
Thanks Mr President!https://t.co/dCcTQLsJTp

Cortney you sound fucking stupid 2000 mules
Cynical old fool smfh
I don’t watch the video because I do t really give two shits what he has to say, but he needed cliff notes to say less than 10 words? Yeah, sure Biden’s I charge 👌 How pathetic.
George Costanza’s “Jerk Store” line was delivered smoother than that. Clownshow
Every Biden speech is a microcosm of how fucked up this country is right now.
