Lindsey Graham Threatens Elon Musk After Calling for De-escalating Ukraine Conflict, Then It Backfires in His Face

There was a nice little Twitter battle this week between Elon Musk and Senator Lindsey Graham.

It all started when Musk tweeted,

I still very much support Ukraine, but am convinced that massive escalation of the war will cause great harm to Ukraine and possibly the world.

Musk then proposed some terms of agreement that he thinks would aid in ending the conflict. He suggested:


- Redo elections of annexed regions under UN supervision. Russia leaves if that is will of the people.

- Crimea formally part of Russia, as it has been since 1783 (until Khrushchev’s mistake).

- Water supply to Crimea assured.

- Ukraine remains neutral.

Senator Lindsey Graham decided to respond to Musk's suggestions by essentially telling him that he doesn't know what he's talking about.

With all due respect to Elon Musk - and I do respect him - I would suggest he needs to understand the facts of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Suggesting we end the Russian invasion by simply giving Russia parts of Ukraine - after all the suffering - is dumb.

It is also an affront to the bravery of the Ukrainians fighting to defend their homeland.

Sen. Graham then proceeded to actually threaten Elon Musk by suggesting that Congress might need to look at legislation that Tesla is a part of involving electric vehicle tax credits.

While we’re at it, maybe the Congress should revisit the electric vehicle tax credit boondoggle.

It is where the credit is now solely benefiting electric vehicle manufacturers who have increased prices equal to the tax credit!

See...this is just one of the problems with Congress. He's really going to threaten to look at legislation because he's upset by what he said? Retaliation via law is not just abuse, but tyranny.

However, it looks like Graham doesn't even know what he's talking about because Musk replied back to let Sen. Graham know that Tesla hasn't had that consumer tax credit for years, and that Ford and GM asked for the recent one, not Tesla.
