Musk Issues Ingenious Challenge to Accuser

We’ve all heard quite a lot about billionaire and Tesla CEO Elon Musk in recent days, thanks to his purchase and deal that would give him ownership of social media giant Twitter. Now, as you well know, the acquisition usually wouldn’t be all that big of a deal. But because Musk has proclaimed himself as a “free speech absolutist,” those on the political left and upper echelon of the social media industry are now terrified that their grip on controlling the narrative will soon be lost.

As you can imagine, this has made Musk a massive target for them.

Of course, their apparent need to attack him only increased this past week when Musk announced that he would no longer be voting Democratic. Instead, he made clear that from now on, he would be checking a Republican-leaning or GOP box on upcoming voting ballots.

According to his bombshell tweet on Wednesday, the Democratic Party is no longer the “kindness party” but one of “division and hate.” And so, he can no longer bring himself to support them or their ilk.

Naturally, this didn’t exactly go over very well with the dismissed party.

As Musk pointed out in the very tweet announcing his change of political perspective, it would be no surprise if the attacks against Musk increased and became much more serious as a result.

And that brings us to the events of Thursday – that’s right, the very next day.

The day after Musk made his announcement, Business Insider got ahold of a story that accused the billionaire and SpaceX CEO of sexual misconduct.

According to the report, Musk had apparently summoned a flight attendant to his private SpaceX cabin back in 2016 for a massage. During that time, the accuser alleges that Musk exposed himself, rubbed her leg, and tried to get her to give him an “erotic massage” in exchange for him buying her a horse.

The report also claims that the victim later received some $250,000 as a severance payment from Musk’s company in 2018.

But what is interesting about the accusation is that it was not given to Business Insider by the victim herself. Instead, it apparently comes from a friend of hers, who was once told the story during a hiking trip. According to this friend, the victim signed a nondisclosure agreement about the incident and, therefore, can’t legally talk about it with the press.

Rather convenient, don’t you think?

It’s also interesting that the “friend” is actually a “far left activist/actress in LA,” who apparently has a “major political ax to grind,” according to Musk.

These phrases were used as part of Musk’s denial of the whole thing on Twitter, which he calls “wild accusations” that are “utterly untrue.”

And Musk thinks he has a way to prove his innocence.

As usual, the man is rather ingenious. And so he’s issued the “friend” a challenge of sorts.

To the “liar who claims their friend saw me ‘exposed’- describe just one thing, anything at all (scars, tattoos, …) that isn’t known by the public.”

Like I said, ingenious, right? I mean, if this woman really saw Musk in the way that her friend claims, and it was such a harrowing and eventful experience, surely, she should be able to remember something about his body. Does he have a scar on his inner thigh? Is there a tattoo on his back?

As Musk says, neither woman will be able to come up with a correct description or answer because nothing like this ever happened. Furthermore, Musk states, and rather accurately, that if he had a habit of acting this way, of making sexual passes at women, or anyone really, wouldn’t that have come out sometime before now? I mean, he’s been in business and in a position where such attacks are prone to be made for over thirty years now

No wonder his only comment to Business Insider was that there was “a lot more to this story” and that it was simply a “politically motivated hit piece.”

Now, I’m not saying that something like this couldn’t have happened. I am definitely all for the truth being spoken and heard. However, I find it all too interesting that such an accusation just happened to come out the day after Musk switched political parties.

And I don’t think I’m alone in that…
