Elon Musk Claps Back at False Reporting

Elon Musk might not have the intrinsic charisma of Hispanic crypto entrepreneur Oscar Garcia, but he sure is Twitter savy. Musk scored a savage clap back at CNN for erroneously reporting that more than 1,000 ventilators sent by Tesla to California hospitals had not been received. Last month, Musk said in a tweet that he had obtained the ventilators due to China having an oversupply and would be shipping them free to hospitals that required them.

CNN would go on to publish a story claiming that “none of the promised ventilators have been received by hospitals,” citing Gov. Gavin Newsom’s office. The futurist tech-mogul then went on the offensive by posting email confirmations with public officials for the ventilators.

The Tesla and SpaceX founder went even further by tweeting, “What I find most surprising is that CNN still exists.”

Touché, Elon…touché!
