Donald Trump (right) fired back after Elon Musk (left) said it was time for him to "Sail into the sunset."

The former U.S. President slammed Musk after the Tesla founder suggested it was time for him "to hang up his hat & sail into the sunset."

Trump told Musk to focus on that $$$ lawsuit filed against him by Twitter.

As you know, Musk called off his $44 billion deal to buy Twitter.

Twitter responded by filing a massive lawsuit against Musk.

In several posts on Trump's own social media platform, Truth Social, Trump took credit for Musk's many successes.

Trump bragged that the Tesla executive had told him he voted for Trump.

"When Elon Musk came to the White House asking me for help on all of his many subsidized projects, whether it's electric cars that don't drive long enough, driverless cars that crash, or rocketships to nowhere, without which subsidies he'd be worthless, and telling me how he was a big Trump fan and Republican, I could have said, 'drop to your knees and beg,' and he would have done it," Trump wrote.

"Now Elon should focus on getting himself out of the Twitter mess because he could owe $44 billion for something that's perhaps worthless. Also, lots of competition for electric cars!"

Trump launched Truth Social as a Twitter alternative after the social media platform banned him in 2020 while he was a sitting president.

In previous posts on Truth Social, Trump hinted that Musk only purchased Twitter to compete with him.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has called off his $44 billion deal to buy Twitter. Musk reportedly terminated the deal after Twitter executives refused to provide information on the true number of spam bots and spam accounts on the platform.

Twitter claims 1 million spam accounts are deleted per day, but Musk believes that Twitter dramatically misrepresented the number of spam accounts on the site. He also said Twitter didn't provide him with the relevant business information he requested.

Musk announced his plan to buy Twitter in April after he joined the board of directors. Musk became Twitter's largest shareholder when he bought a $3 billion stake (9.2% of Twitter stock) in the company.

Musk vowed to make changes to the site, which angered liberal employees and Democrats who use the platform as a campaign tool for the Democratic party.

Trump supporters called for Musk to bring back former President Donald Trump who was banned from Twitter in 2020. However, Trump said he wasn't interested since he has his own social media platform.

Some Twitter employees walked off the job rather than work under Musk.

Elon Musk confirmed he is a father of 10 after the news broke that he fathered twins with one of his top executives in November.

The Tesla CEO, 51, reportedly fathered twins with Shivon Zilis, 36, the director of operations at Musk's brain-machine interface company Neuralink.

Musk's second set of twins arrived just weeks before he welcomed a child with Canadian singer Grimes via surrogate in November 2021, according to court documents obtained by DailyMail.com.

On Wednesday, Musk tweeted: "Doing my best to help the underpopulation crisis. A collapsing birth rate is the biggest danger civilization faces by far."

Nick Cannon, a father of 8 himself, tweeted: "Right there with you my brother!"

Cannon, 41, was ecstatic that Musk is catching up to him by fathering multiple children out of wedlock.

Musk and Zilis filed a petition in April to change the twins' last names to his.

Cannon is currently father to twins Moroccan and Monroe, 11, with ex-wife Mariah Carey; son Golden, 5, and daughter Powerful Queen, 19 months, with Brittany Bell; and 13-month-old twins Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir with Abby De La Rosa.

His son Zen, by Alyssa Scott, died from a brain tumor in December.

Cannon is expecting his 8th child with Bre Tiesi any day now. And 5 more women are allegedly pregnant by the "Wild 'N Out" host.

Elon Musk doubled down on Tesla employees who continue to resist his order to return to the office full-time.

In a second email to employees, Musk clarified that executives and other workers will be fired if they don't return to their desks after their 2-year vacation at home.

The internal company email, shared by Twitter user @SamNissim, bears the subject line "To be super clear."

"Everyone at Tesla is required to spend a minimum of 40 hours in the office per week. If you don’t show up, we will assume you have resigned."

Musk made it clear to his executives: "The office must be where your actual colleagues are located, not some remote pseudo office."

"The more senior you are, the more visible must be your presence," Musk wrote, before adding that he slept in a Tesla factory to boost his workers' morale.

"That is why I lived in the factory so much - so that those on the line could see me working alongside them. If I had not done that, Tesla would long ago have gone bankrupt."

Musk then declared: "If you don't show up, we will assume you have resigned."

To those still complaining about returning to work, Musk suggested they find employment elsewhere.

"There are of course companies that don't require this, but when was the last time they shipped a great new product? It's been a while. Tesla has and will create and actually manufacture the most exciting and meaningful products of any company on Earth. This will not happen by phoning it in."

Musk has been vocal about his disapproval of remote work in the past. Corporations and small businesses allowed employees to work from home at the start of pandemic in 2020.

Some employees - believing that remote work would last forever - moved out of state and bought homes as far away as Florida.

Elon Musk has ordered all remote (work from home) employees to return to the office full-time or find another job.

"Anyone who wishes to do remote work must be in the office for a minimum (and I mean minimum) of 40 hours per week or depart Tesla," Musk said in an internal company memo that was leaked to the press.

The subject line of the email read: "Remote work is no longer acceptable."

Musk confirmed the authenticity of the email and "made it crystal clear he had zero tolerance for those demanding the right to retain [work from home] privileges," Fortune magazine reported.

"They should pretend to work somewhere else," Elon wrote in the email.

Tesla has joined corporations with more than 100 employees that are ordering their remote employees to return to the office.

Apple CEO Tim Cook (pictured) recently announced that remote employees must work at least 3 days in the office. But Ian Goodfellow, Director of machine learning for Apple, refused the directive and tendered his resignation.

"I believe strongly that more flexibility would have been the best policy for my team," Goodfellow wrote in a goodbye email.

An Apple employee confirmed Goodfellow's departure on the corporate gossip site Blind. He quoted Goodfellow as saying, "I'm leaving for many reasons ... but Apple's return to office policy is the biggest single reason."

Other Big Tech companies like Meta (Facebook), Google and Amazon are allowing at least some employees to work from home indefinitely.

Corporations and small businesses allowed employees to work from home at the start of the pandemic in 2020.

Many employees - believing they would work from home forever - moved out of state and purchased homes thousands of miles away from their jobs.

Tesla billionaire Elon Musk has reached a deal to buy Twitter.com for a reported $44 billion in cash.

The deal was announced by Twitter's board of directors who initially resisted Musk's offer to buy the social media platform to protect freedom of speech.

Liberals' heads exploded when the deal was announced on Monday. Thousands of disappointed Twitter users threatened to delete their accounts.

"I hope that even my worst critics remain on Twitter, because that is what free speech means," Musk tweeted on Monday.

The deal means Musk will take Twitter private and the stock will no longer be publicly traded.

Users whose Twitter accounts were censored or suspended begged Musk to reinstate their accounts.

The news of Musk's Twitter takeover comes on the same day his friend Donald Trump was held in contempt by a New York judge for refusing to hand over his financial records to NY's attorney general.

The former president will be fined $10,000 a day until he turns over the documents in attorney general Letitia James' investigation into the Trump Organization's business dealings, according to The New York Times.

Trump, who lost a few hundred million as president, is still worth close to a billion dollars.

Elon Musk became Twitter's largest shareholder when he bought a $3 billion stake (9.2% of Twitter stock) in the company.

In comparison, Twitter's former CEO Jack Dorsey owns 2.5% of Twitter stock.

Twitter appointed Musk to its board of directors according to a regulatory filing on Tuesday morning.

According to reports, Musk decided to buy Twitter after satire website The Babylon Bee was suspended for a tweet the company didn't like.

Bloomberg reports that the CEO of The Babylon Bee said Elon Musk reached out to him to confirm that The Bee had been suspended from Twitter. During that discussion, Musk suggested that "he might need to buy Twitter."

When Twitter CEO Parag Agwaral welcomed Musk to the Twitter board, the Tesla CEO tweeted: "Looking forward to working with Parag & Twitter board to make significant improvements to Twitter in coming months!"

Several Twitter employees walked off the job after Musk joined Twitter's board of directors on Tuesday.

Trump supporters called for Musk to bring back former President Donald Trump who was banned from Twitter in 2020.

Grimes (R) broke up with Musk, 50, in 2021 after dating three years. They share a 22-month-old son named X Æ A-12 (pronounced X Ash A Twelve, or simply Ash.)

The billionaire Tesla founder shares six sons with first wife Justine Musk.

Grimes revealed her baby news to Vanity Fair magazine in a cover story for the April 2022 issue.

Grimes explained her daughter's unusual name to Vanity Fair, telling the mag that Exa refers to a supercomputing term, exaFLOPS, while Dark represents Dark matter "the unknown." She said, "Dark matter is the beautiful mystery of our universe."

"Sideræl" refers to Grimes' favorite Lord of the Rings character, Galadriel, who "chooses to abdicate the ring."

Grimes told Vanity Fair that she was "fighting" to name her daughter Odysseus Musk, because "A girl named Odysseus is my dream." She and Musk ultimately chose Exa Dark Sideræl instead.

Elon Musk is back on the market. The Tesla founder and musician Grimes have reportedly split after three years together.

The couple will continue to co-parent their infant son X Æ A-Xii, pronounced Ex Ash A Twelve.

Elon and Canadian singer Grimes, real name Claire Boucher, 33, met in 2018. They welcomed their son in 2020.

Grimes is best known for her electronic and synthpop music. She featured pop singer Janelle Monae on her track "Venus Fly."

"We are semi-separated but still love each other, see each other frequently and are on great terms," Elon told Page Six.

Elon said they grew apart due to his work which requires him to travel extensively.

"It's mostly that my work at SpaceX and Tesla requires me to be primarily in Texas or traveling overseas and her work is primarily in LA. She's staying with me now and Baby X is in the adjacent room."

Elon, 50, moved to Texas in December 2020 following a public spat with California lawmakers over government shutdowns amid the Covid-19 crisis.

Elon, who has six other sons with ex-wife Justine Musk, was less than impressed with the latest addition to his modern family.

"Well, babies are just eating and pooping machines, you know? Right now there's not much I can do," he told the New York Times. "When the kid gets older, there will be more of a role for me."

Elon has been married three times. He divorced Justine Musk in 2008, and he and actress Talulah Riley divorced twice.

He briefly dated actress Amber Heard in 2017.

Elon Musk hosted Saturday Night Live (SNL), where the tech billionaire revealed he was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, an autism spectrum disorder.

"I don't always have a lot of intonation or variation in how I speak, which I'm told makes for great comedy," he said, before adding, "I'm actually making history tonight as the first person with Asperger's to host SNL. Or at least the first person to admit it."

Actually, former "SNL" cast member Dan Akroyd also had the disorder.

Critics ripped Musk for not apologizing for comments he made about the Covid-19 vaccine or transgenders.

Despite the criticism, over 3 million people viewed a YouTube video of his monologue over the weekend.
 

What is Asperger's syndrome?

Asperger's syndrome -- also known as high-functioning autism -- is a developmental disability that affects many people in many different ways. In fact, many adults with Asperger's are never diagnosed.

Some adults are only diagnosed with Asperger's when their symptoms interfere with their personal and work relationships.

"People with Asperger syndrome see, hear and feel the world differently to other people," according to the British National Autistic Society.

"Look, I know I sometimes say or post strange things, but that's just how my brain works," Musk said during the SNL episode.

High functioning autism (HFA) generally refers to autistic people who have significantly developed language and independent living skills. They may seem normal because they tend to be highly intelligent, very successful in life, or have a special talent that sets then apart from others.

However, as children they are obsessed with a particular subject or activity, and become upset when that activity is interrupted.

Doctors and parents miss the signs and symptoms of HFA in childhood because the child seems normal except for their obsession with a particular subject or activity. Many HFA children channel their obsessions into successful careers.

Those with Asperger's may also find it difficult to express their feelings, but can be more empathetic or emotionally aware than non-autistic people.

Autism is diagnosed in toddlers and adolescents who have difficulty with interpersonal and communications skills.

Starting in the 1990s, milder forms of autism were recognized in adults, including high-functioning autism.
 

Signs and Symptoms of High-Functioning Autism

Below are some of the signs and symptoms of high-functioning autism (this is not a complete list).

1. Socially awkward

2. Hyper sensitive to bright lights or certain noises (loud music)

3. Depression or anxiety

4. Repetitive actions or behaviors

5. Easily upset when a task is interrupted in the middle

6. Can't handle even minor changes

7. Prefer to be alone

8. Mood swings

9. 70% surveyed say they are LGBT+

10. Repeats words or phrases during conversations

11. Intensely focused on specific interests (gaming, social media, etc.)

12. Have a talent or gift (art, music, writing, etc.)

13. Have a tough time interacting with others

14. Have trouble maintaining eye contact

15. Staring disorder
You sometimes stare without realizing it (until someone tells you or reacts negatively)

Erykah Badu and Elon Musk both found discrepancies in Covid-19 tests they took this week.

They reported the discrepancies on social media -- and were immediately attacked by their followers who don't want the truth revealed.

Erykah took to Twitter on Friday, Nov. 13, to question the accuracy of two Covid-19 tests she took as part of a job requirement.

"This is my third rapid test in 24 hours... Earlier I took 2 and one was positive the other neg in separate nostrils ?? We need to investigate these tests further. I want my $ back."

She added: "Funny thing is, Dr. ONLY reported the positive result. What the fack is goin on here?"

Get-well wishes poured in for the R&B singer. But Erykah told her supporters she is feeling fine.

On Thursday, Elon, the CEO of Tesla, tweeted similar concerns about his conflicting tests:

"Something extremely bogus is going on. Was tested for covid four times today. Two tests came back negative, two came back positive. Same machine, same test, same nurse. Rapid antigen test from BD."

Elon's followers scolded him for reporting the inaccuracy in his tests. But Elon did some investigating, and he learned about a widely known flaw in the PCR tests that produce high numbers of false positive results when run at cycles of 40 and above.

He tweeted: "Lab I just spoke to said cov2 PCR detection (N1 & N3 genes) below 30 cycles is reliable & above 40 cycles is not."

PCR tests are run in cycles of 20-40 repeated thermal temperature changes. Cycles run at 30 or below are considered to be more reliable.

For example, labs that process Covid-19 tests for the NBA and NFL run cycles of 30 or below, which produces more reliable and accurate test results.

But government-controlled labs are processing PCR tests at 40 cycles or higher - which produces a high frequency of false-positive results.

The news media gleefully reports "surging Covid-19 cases" or "a spike in Covid-19 cases" when most of the tests are flawed.

PCR was invented in 1984 by the American biochemist Kary Mullis, who won a Nobel Prize in 1993 for his work.

When Mullis issued warnings about the inaccuracy of his PCR tests, he suddenly died of pneumonia on August 7, 2019.

In 2009, when former President Barack Obama was in office, the CDC stopped reporting H1N1 cases because the tests were unreliable and some labs were co-mingling positive flu results in with the H1N1 results.

Many believe governments are taking drastic measures to save the environment (climate change) and control the population.

Billionaire elites such as Bill Gates believe their fellow humans are the biggest threat to the environment.

Strict stay-at-home orders will ensure you can't drive for weeks or months, which decreases C02 released into the atmosphere.

And there is much discussion online about vaccines impairing the human reproductive system.

Kanye West dropped out of the 2020 U.S. presidential race - after a heart-to-heart talk with President Donald Trump.

According to Washington insiders, Trump convinced his good friend to drop out of the race because the publicity surrounding West's run was negatively impacting his own campaign.

The 43-year-old rapper announced his intention to run for president two weeks ago. Democrats immediately accused West of conspiring with Trump to help him siphon off Democratic votes.

"So Trump got Kanye to try to split the Black vote," tweeted @DrBFPalmer on July 5.

And @JB93621 tweeted: "Yep gonna try and split young votes from Biden and help his buddy trump get re-elected."

According to New York Magazine's Intelligencer magazine, Steve Kramer confirmed the Yeezy rapper won't be running against Trump and Joe Biden for the POTUS position.

"He's out," Kramer said, according to the publication.

The election strategist added: "I have nothing good or bad to say about Kanye. Everyone has their personal decision about why they make decisions."

Kramer joined West's campaign team to get the rapper on the ballot in Florida and South Carolina.

When asked for more details on what had happened, Kramer replied: "I'll let you know what I know once I get all our stuff canceled. We had over 180 people out there today."

But Washington insiders say Trump called West and convinced him to drop out of the race because his campaign was hampered by the controversy surrounding West.

"Trump asked him to drop out, so Kanye's out," said the insider.

West tried to put some distance between himself and Trump by claiming he no longer supported the president after he "caught wind that he hid in the bunker" during the Black Lives Matter uprising in Washington, D.C. last month.

Trump, 73, brushed aside news that West was gunning for his job in a recent chat with Fox News' Sean Hannity. The president expressed confidence that his job was safe.

"He is always going to be for us, and his wife is going to be for us," Trump said, referring to the rapper and reality TV star Kim Kardashian West.

"[He's a] very good guy. He is a person that I get along with very well," Trump said. "At the end I think he would support us over anyone else, we have to stop the radical left from taking over our country."

Tesla boss Elon Musk, who was West's campaign adviser, reportedly also asked the rapper to drop out of the race. Musk later said West wasn't ready to run for president until 2024.

Tesla founder Elon Musk and musician Grimes welcomed their first child together, a boy, on Monday. Musk confirmed the baby's arrival in a tweet. "Mom & baby all good," he wrote.

Grimes, real name Claire Boucher, is a 32-year-old Canadian singer best known for her 2012 album Visions, that spawned the singles "Genesis" and "Oblivion." The album won the Juno Award for Electronic Album of the Year.

Grimes, who admits being a drug-addict-turned vegetarian, met Musk in 2018 after dating singer Devon Welsh for 3 years.

She broke the news of her pregnancy in a graphic photo on her Instagram page. The image showed her bare baby bump with what looked like red lacerations across her belly.
