SNL Fires Shots At Elon Musk, Argues Pro-Free Speech Is Pro- Racism
Saturday Night Live might take the occasional shot at Biden but they prove, more often than not, that they support the liberal narrative. During a mock news broadcast, two SNLers decided to lay off of 'low-hanging fruit Biden' and take their chances slamming Musk. The pair took it a step farther and echoed liberal propaganda that a push for free speech is a push for racism.
“Elon Musk offered to buy Twitter for over $40 billion so he can loosen its free speech restrictions,” Che began. “That’s how badly white guys want to use the ‘N-word.'”
“I don’t understand why Elon even wants to own Twitter,” Jost replied, laughing. “It used to be something that seemed important and even fun and now you look at it and it’s confusing and depressing. It’s the Giuliani of apps.”
Jost went on tock Britain’s Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
“Come on, Elon — Elon built electric cars, he’s going to Mars, why is he even involving himself with Twitter?” he asked. “It would be like if the Prince of England gave it all up just to marry an actor from ‘Suits.'”
“Plus, Twitter isn’t even that profitable anymore. It just feels like a bad business decision. And I say that as someone who bought a Staten Island Ferry with Pete [Davidson],” Jost concluded.

Musk made the $43 billion offer after recently becoming Twitter’s largest individual shareholder and turning down a spot on the board. The board responded with a poison pill by using the 'Rights Plan'.
The plan is a “limited duration shareholder rights plan,” which gives Twitter’s existing shareholders, except Musk, time to purchase additional shares at a discount, Axios reported Friday.
The desired effect is clearly to dilute Musk’s holding in the company, and make the cost of a takeover higher or even prohibitive as the company hopes shareholders step up and save them from the pending takeover.
"A poison pill gives existing shareholders the ability to purchase additional shares in the company at a discount, which in turn dilutes the stake of the person or party seeking to buy the company."
