LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Sarah Palin’s Tesla claims have been denied by Elon Musk. Sarah Palin ranted about Tesla in a Facebook post this week, calling the company a bunch of “losers”. But the company’s head says Palin’s remarks are false.
Sarah Palin took to Facebook to fume about Fisker Automotive, the Chevy Volt, and Tesla. Palin wrote “This is really just the latest manifestation of the administration’s crony capitalism as their green energy buddies benefit from this atrocious waste of taxpayer money.” She added “Americans really need to get outraged by these wasteful ventures. As we’ve seen time and time again, We the People are always stuck subsidizing the left’s losers.”
Musk has since replied to news. “Sarah Palin calls Tesla a loser. Am deeply wounded.” He added that her assertions about bricking are false. “Btw, Model S warranty does cover bricking.” He later told news “At the risk of losing more ‘cool points’, I like Reagan too! However, I also like Obama, Clinton & JFK. Good people on both sides.”
He later joked to followers “No more political comments for me now that I’ve shot off both my feet…Which leads me to my next subject of gun control … just kidding”. Musk is expected to comment more about the matter in a news conference today.
