Although Tesla CEO and pioneer of many things Elon Musk is more politically moderate, and especially outspoken about it, he seems to have amassed a large group of haters. These haters, seemingly similar to those who followed and follow former President Donald Trump around in similar fashion, seem to have but one goal.
That goal appears to be to try to tarnish Mr. Musk’s reputation with false or at best incomplete information regarding why they want others to believe he, in their view apparently, in not a good person.
As we recently reported, Musk once again brought up the Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell scandal. It seems unlikely to us that he would continuously bring this up if he was particularly guilty of being a client of or associated with Mr. Epstein in some notable way.
It was Epstein and Maxwell’s M.O. to get pictures with important people, seemingly with disregard to whether or not they had very close ties with them or not.
This seems to be what happened once with Mr. Musk, who claims he was photobombed by Ghislaine Maxwell last month, and reiterated it just a few hours ago as well on his ever refreshing Twitter feed.
Last night he responded when someone posted the now well circulated image:
“Ah yes, Maxwell photobombing me at a @VanityFair Oscars party – you should them why they invited her. The same people who push this photo say nothing about prominent people who actually went to his island a dozen times. Also very strange …”

The same people who push this photo say nothing about prominent people who actually went to his island a dozen times. Also very strange …

It was a reiteration of at least one other time:
“That’s a Vanity Fair party and she photobombed me in the background, but you know that already, don’t know?”

Strangely enough, it was the same Vanity Fair that reported in 2019 about Musk’s email regarding his potential affiliation with Jeffrey Epstein, which appears to likely be the only time he came into contact:
In an email, Elon Musk responded: “I don’t recall introducing Epstein to anyone, as I don’t know the guy well enough to do so, Epstein is obviously a creep and Zuckerberg is not a friend of mine. Several years ago, I was at his house in Manhattan for about 30 minutes in the middle of the afternoon with Talulah [Riley], as she was curious about meeting this strange person for a novel she was writing. We did not see anything inappropriate at all, apart from weird art. He tried repeatedly to get me to visit his island. I declined.” A Musk spokesperson also emailed: “Elon never introduced Jeffrey Epstein to Mark Zuckerberg and does not know either person well enough to do so. They simply happened to be guests at a neuroscience dinner organized by Reid Hoffman.”
It does seem that although for any person’s reputation’s sake, the best amount of contact or photos or lists to ever be affiliated with Epstein or Maxwell on is zero, Musk has a pretty strong story.
Many have attacked Musk nemesis and alleged Tesla short-seller Bill Gates for having a much less air tight story, however Musk is often more of a political target these days, especially since he left the Democrat party.
We expect the petty political accusations to continue for the foreseeable future, especially with the possible Twitter takeover and free speech plan coming soon.
In the meantime, we expect business as usual at Tesla and all of Musk’s other companies as well as his Twitter timeline, minus many of his likely fans who have probably already been permanently banned for arbitrary reasons by Twitter’s current leadership.
