    Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweeted Wednesday that he was leaning towards supporting Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for president in 2024. After claiming that he voted for a Republican for the first time — helping to elect Mayra Flores to Texas’s 34th congressional district and flip a Democrat seat Republican for the first time in decades — he revealed he is also considering a Republican for president. “I assume republican for president 2?” someone asked. Musk responded, “tbd.” When the person asked him, “What are you leaning towards?” Musk responded, “DeSantis.” Musk said he supported Andrew Yang for president in 2020 but that “DeSantis has a better chance of winning.” I voted for Mayra Flores – first time I ever voted Republican.

    A Twitter poll designed to “prove how phony the right’s ridiculous polls are” appeared to backfire when more than 81% of respondents said they trust Tesla CEO Elon Musk over Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). The poll came in response to a tweet posted by Musk on Thursday in which he asked his 95.6 million followers whether they trust politicians or billionaires less.

    Elon Musk has joked that he will leave Twitter to a YouTube star in the event of his untimely demise, soon after musing that he might 'die under mysterious circumstances.' Musk made the remark in a brief tweet on Monday, responding to YouTuber Jimmy Donaldson, also known as MrBeast, who has a massive following of 95 million on the video streaming platform.

    Musk, who garnered international headlines earlier this month when he purchased enough shares to become Twitter's largest individual shareholder, went on to make a total buyout offer for the social platform at a price of $43 billion. Musk had become increasingly critical of the platform's censorship practices, and many perceived his stock purchases as a way to pressure the company toward improvement. He ramped up that pressure considerably when he offered to purchase the entire company. Thursday's SEC filing is the latest move in a dramatic public squabble over the company's future. "Twitter has not responded to the Proposal. Given the lack of response by Twitter, [Musk] is exploring whether to commence a tender offer to acquire all of the outstanding shares of Common Stock ... at a price of $54.20 per share," the filing states. Twitter responded to the filing with a statement confirming it has received Musk's proposal. "As previously announced and communicated to Mr. Musk directly, the Board is committed to conducting a careful, comprehensive and deliberate review to determine the course of action that it...
    Tesla CEO Elon Musk polled Twitter on Saturday, asking whether a new social media platform should be created to challenge Twitter and sparking speculation that the billionaire might be the one to do so.  In a series of tweets on Friday, the Space X founder asked if the time has come for a new platform to replace Twitter, and whether users thought the company 'adhered to free speech principles.'  He said that, because Twitter serves as 'the de factor public town square,' a failure to promote free speech on the app would undermine democracy. In a reply to his own thread on Saturday, which sparked speculation, Musk wrote: 'Is a new platform needed?'  'Free speech is essential to a functioning democracy,' he had written the day before, on Friday. 'Do you believe Twitter rigorously adheres to this principle?'  Just over 70 percent of over 2 million respondents said 'no' to Musk's Twitter poll.  In a follow-up Tweet, the tech mogul wrote that 'the consequences of this poll will be important,' and he had urged respondents to 'please vote carefully.'   ...

    One Nicki Minaj tweet after another is being debunked this week. The pop star said Wednesday that she had been invited to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue to discuss her recent tweets about coronavirus vaccines, but the White House responded that it had just offered her a phone call. After she said she had been locked out of her Twitter account over the same tweets, Twitter said it had not penalized her in any way. When she cited a secondhand story about a cousin’s friend’s testicles swollen as the result of a coronavirus vaccine, top public health officials in multiple countries said her claims were false. A White House official told The Daily Beast: “As we have with others, we offered a call with Nicki Minaj and one of our doctors to answer questions she has about the safety and effectiveness of the vaccine.” Dubbing the rolling controversy over her vaccine hesitancy “Ballgate,” Minaj said Wednesday that she had even planned her outfit for the occasion. “The White House has invited me & I think it’s a step in...

    In the wake of the Taliban's conquest of Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan, left-leaning filmmaker Michael Moore tried to compare the January 6 U.S. Capitol riot to the Taliban conquest of the presidential palace in Kabul. "Their Taliban, our Taliban, everybody’s got a Taliban," Moore tweeted with pictures of the Taliban at the presidential palace and the rioters in the U.S. Capitol. "They’re at their best when they confiscate the halls of power." Moore's critics, however, argued that the comparison didn't fully hold water. "Thanks for making the perfect case as to why January 6 wasn't an insurrection," political comedian and columnist Tim Young replied on Twitter.

It’s a massive deal for George who won’t be facing free agency until he turns 35 in 2025. But mainly, it’s a huge investment in a player who failed to get the Clippers past the second round despite holding the second-best record in the Western Conference. George’s struggles, specifically, were the focus among NBA fans with his “Playoff P” nickname turning into “Pandemic P” when the league shifted to the Orlando bubble. NBA fans brought that nickname back in response to the...
    Calm down, everybody. Nigella Lawson is pronouncing “microwave” wrong on purpose. This week, Twitter seemed somewhat confused by a resurfaced clip from BBC’s “Nigella’s Cook, Eat, Repeat,” in which the British chef pronounces “microwave” as if she had never heard the word before. “But I still need a bit of milk, full fat, which I’ve warmed in the mee-cro-WAH-vay,” she can be heard saying in the widely shared seven-second clip. Twitter users soon jumped all over Lawson, with some mocking her mispronunciation, and others vowing to adopt the mispronunciation deliberately. NIGELLA LAWSON PARTICIPATES IN 'ME AT 20' CHALLENGE, EARNS PRAISE: 'GAME OVER' “Amazing how we have been saying it wrong all this time... thanks Nigella,” wrote one social media user. “Eternally grateful to Nigella Lawson for letting us know we've all been mispronouncing microwave for the last 50 (or so) years,” another wrote.

    CNN chief Climate Correspondent Bill Weir was labeled “amazingly sexist” on Wednesday for a tweet implying Sen. Kelly Loeffler, R-Ga., is only successful because of her husband. Loeffler, who is battling to keep her seat in the Senate in a special election race, is a former Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) executive who is married to ICE CEO Jeffrey Sprecher. She also worked at a number of other well-known companies, including Citi and Toyota, and was appointed by the state’s governor to fill a vacant seat in the Senate left by Sen.

And it won’t be possible if we go down the road to socialism,” Loeffler tweeted. “We must hold the line and protect the...

    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz called out Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey during a contentious exchange surrounding voter fraud and the platform’s censorship of material related to that subject. “Does voter fraud exist?” the Republican asked Dorsey, to which Dorsey responded, “I don’t know for certain.” “Are you an expert on voter fraud?" Cruz responded. "No, I'm not," Dorsey said. "Well, why, then, is Twitter right now putting purported warnings on virtually any statement about voter fraud?” Cruz continued.

    Loading the player... Philadelphia police responded to three disturbance calls from Walter Wallace Jr.’s home on Monday and the last visit resulted in the 27-year-old being fatally shot. Read More: Philadelphia police fatally shoot Walter Wallace, 27; protesters take to the streets Law enforcement sources told the Philadelphia Inquirer on Tuesday that authorities went to Wallace’s home twice before his deadly encounter with police. Furthermore, there were at least 31 calls made since May from that address. The issues ranged from low priority to an individual described as making threats and in possession of weapons. Philadelphia Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw did not discuss why the officers were called to Wallace’s home prior to the shooting at a press conference held on Tuesday. Outlaw also would not confirm if the officers who shot Wallace were aware of earlier calls for help from the residence. She did address why the officers involved in the shooting responded to the disturbance call with guns rather than tasers. (Credit: Walter Wallace/CBS Philly) “Every police officer is not issued a taser at this time,” Outlaw...

The “Cheers” actress said Saturday that she would be casting her vote for Trump after first supporting him in 2016. “I’m voting for @realDonaldTrump because he’s NOT a politician,” she wrote on Twitter. “I voted for him 4 years ago for this reason and shall vote for him again for this reason.” “He gets things done quickly and he will turn the economy around quickly,” she added. But in the hours after her tweet, the actress was targeted by other celebrities for backing the president again. “Shelly Long was way funnier than you,” director Judd Apatow wrote , referring to both actresses playing actor Ted Danson’s love interests on “Cheers.” Fellow actress Patricia Arquette responded: “Well my vote for Biden canceled yours out.

    For Rennie Davis, the release of Aaron Sorkin’s The Trial of the Chicago 7 — which started streaming on Netflix on Friday — is well-timed, though he has reservations about the film’s authenticity. Davis himself was one of the seven — a primary organizer of the 1968 demonstration at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago that sparked the charges against the defendants — and, with the rest, stood trial for five and a half months in 1969. “The first thing I felt was the perfection of Sorkin and DreamWorks’ timing,” says Davis, who now lives in Longmont. “There’s such a parallel between what happened in ’68 and what’s happening now with the election days away, and so many people panicking that it may be the last. It’s just beautiful timing, and I really support the film in that sense.” In August 1968, thousands of protesters converged on Chicago. Richard Daley, mayor of Chicago at the time, responded by refusing permits to march or to sleep in city parks, deploying 12,000 police and calling in 15,000 state and federal...
    Better to be a good American than a good employee. Distilled to its most elemental expression, that is the reason why I blew up a 35-year career in broadcast media to add my voice to the alarms sounding about the current state of our Republic. My former employer did the right thing in firing me. They set the rules, standards of conduct and guidelines for content. Break them and you pay. I did and I did. To anyone gleefully saying that I got what I deserved, I agree, so let’s move on...back to our imperiled democracy.

    For once, the Denver Broncos weren't predictable. The squad is excellent at humiliating itself on national television, so a fourth consecutive loss during the October 1 Thursday Night Football matchup against the woeful New York Jets seemed predestined, particularly given that the starting quarterback was Brett Rypien, an undrafted Boise State alum whose main claim to fame is being the nephew of Super Bowl-winning Washington standout Mark Rypien. Somehow, though, Denver managed to come out on top of a 37-28 score, likely guaranteeing the pink slipping of Jets head coach and ex-Broncos assistant Adam Gase. But even though the 0-4 Jets appear to be the worst team in the NFL right now, Mile High City diehards unwilling to give up on a season that already seems doomed responded to the victory on Twitter by debating who the outfit's QB going forward should be: Rypien; backup Jeff Driskel, whom the Boise boy replaced; newly signed veteran and The Good Place punchline Blake Bortles; or supposed future-of-the-franchise Drew Lock, who recover from his latest injury within a few weeks. If this seems a bit...
    Quinn Simmons, an American road cyclist, has been suspended from his team after making comments on Twitter supportive of President Donald Trump, The Associated Press reported. Simmons, 19, had until Thursday been employed by Trek-Segafredo, a bike manufacturer that sponsors road cyclists competing at the UCI WorldTeam level. The 2019 junior road race world champion had been competing in his first year with the team; however, comments he made on Twitter this week may yet jeopardize his future in the sport. On Wednesday Dutch journalist José Been posted on Twitter, saying that she “this horrible presidency ends for you,” referring to her American friends. She added, “if you follow me and support Trump, you can go.” Simmons used an emoji depicting a dark-skinned hand doing a wave motion, and wrote “Bye.” Later, according to The Independent, a Twitter user referred to Simmons as a “Trumper,” to which he replied “that’s right” with an American flag emoji. Not long afterwards, users were threatening to boycott Simmons’ sponsor, Trek Bikes. The manufacturer then responded that they were going to “work with Quinn...
    Former FBI Director James Comey responded to a Twitter jab from former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton during a Sunday morning appearance on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” Comey last week had posted a picture of himself wearing a T-shirt that said “elect more women,” to which Clinton responded by tweeting an image of herself smirking. https://t.co/Cd8rEvyf23 pic.twitter.com/2Po1Bl0dtl — Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) August 18, 2020 “I know [Clinton] said in the past she thought she was on the verge of winning in 2016, until you reopened that email investigation,” said CBS anchor Margaret Brennan. “Do you see this is as contradictory? Do you regret what happened then, because she clearly sees this as a contradiction for you to say now?” WATCH: “Yeah, look, I think it is pretty funny,” Comey responded. “And I get why she would send something like that. She’s better at Twitter than I am.” “But I regret only being involved in the 2016 election,” he continued. “We were stuck, and I think that we made the right decisions, choosing between terrible options.

    Popular Google services, including Gmail and Drive, presented problems for users in different parts of the world this Thursday, but were restored a few hours later, the US tech giant said. “We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience and continued support,” the company said. “System reliability is the top priority for Google. We are making continuous improvements to improve our systems.” Frustrated users in countries such as Australia, Japan, France and the United States complained online about the outages and the DownDetector website reported drops in Google services on every continent. “Does anyone else have a problem with @gmail in Australia?” One person tweeted. Another Twitter user in Brooklyn, New York wrote: “In almost 16 years this is the first time I can remember Gmail being completely down.” Meanwhile, the technology giant responded to those affected that it was “aware of an interruption in services.” The @Gmail Twitter account originally responded to the messages, saying: “Thank you for the reports. We are aware of a disruption in services at this time.” Tracking Google service outages in...
    Sen. Ben Sasse spoke out against comments President Trump made regarding the crackdown on protesters in Hong Kong. Trump, in a Tuesday interview with Fox Sports Radio host Clay Travis, suggested that there may be an economic benefit for the United States due to the collapse of freedom in the city, saying, "We will do very well by not having a good competitor." Sasse later scolded the president for his remarks. "There shouldn’t be a shred of doubt about this," the Nebraska Republican told the Washington Examiner. "The American people are on the side of Hong Kong’s freedom-seekers and against the communist thugs committing human rights abuses. We are Americans, and we take the side of freedom — that’s who we are." On Monday, the pair engaged in a feud on Twitter. Trump took a series of executive actions to provide coronavirus relief over the weekend, which Sasse called "unconstitutional slop." The president responded to the comment on Twitter by writing, "RINO Ben Sasse, who needed my support and endorsement in order to get the Republican nomination for Senate...
