Twitter CEO Elon Musk responded to ‘War Room’ podcaster Steve Bannon on Twitter, who called him “a total and complete phony.”
The Former Trump strategist followed up by accusing Musk of being owned “by the Chinese Communist Party,” adding that the Telsa CEO “acts like it.”
Bannon didn’t stop there, further asserting Musk “never goes after the CCP,” with whom he claimed is “in bed” with.
Elon Musk returned fire on Bannon after his “phony” remarks , calling the right win podcaster “evil.”
“I used to think Bannon was smart & evil, but now I realize I was wrong about the first part,” Musk wrote Twitter.
As The Daily Fetched reported last week, a Chinese Communist Party-owned news outlet warned the tech billionaire to cease supporting theories about the COVID lab leak in china.
Elon Musk commented on a post from “Kanekoa The Great,” which questioned whether Anthony Fauci played a role in creating the pandemic.
“Dr. Anthony Fauci funded gain-of-function research at the Wuhan lab, lied to Congress about it, and now both the FBI & the Department of Energy have concluded that the coronavirus originated at the Wuhan lab. Does that mean Dr. Anthony Fauci funded the development of COVID-19?” asked the account.
The Twitter CEO responded to the post by referencing the nonprofit group that Fauci’s institute gave $8 million in grants to study bat coronaviruses.
“He did it via a pass-through organization (EcoHealth),” Musk wrote.
However, the Communist China-owned outlet lashed out at Musk’s comment, warning not to bite the hand that feeds him, appearing to be a referencing his Tesla factory campus based in Shanghai, China.
“Judging from public information and past media reports, Musk himself has actually been moving closer to these right-wing forces in the United States in recent years,” it said.
“He has been dealing with many domestic and foreign issues such as racism issues, gender issues, and Russia-Ukraine conflict issues in the United States,” the post added.
“In fact, he has shown a tendency to endorse these right-wing conservative values. He himself seems to enjoy the feeling of being sought after by the American right-wing forces and ‘carrying the sedan chair.’ Therefore, on the issue of the source of the new crown virus, he will naturally mix with these people,” it continued.
The post added that the Telsa CEO could be “breaking the pot of China,” which means to “bite the hand that feeds you.”
But Musk is no stranger to the lab leak theory and slamming Anthony Fauci.
In December, Musk caused an internet meltdown after tweeting, “my pronouns are prosecute/Fauci.”
