This is great!
The CEO of both Tesla and Space X absolutely slammed the far-left leaning Washington Post.
The Washington Post recently put out a hit piece on Tesla founder Elon Musk that stated his move to Texas along with “embracing himself as a celebrity” is really starting to show in the car company he runs.
Musk didn’t just sit back but responded to the far-left news outlet by saying “Give my regards to your puppet master”.
The owner or puppet master of the Washington Post is Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos who has been in competition with Musk when in comes to space travel.
It’s not much of a competition though considering Bezos’ Blue Origin is far behind Musk’s Space X company.

The Washington Times covered Musk’s comment to the Washington Post:
Elon Musk has a message for The Washington Post’s technology reporters: “Give my regards to your puppet master.”
The quip, a reference to the newspaper’s billionaire owner Jeff Bezos, was the only reply given for a piece titled “Elon Musk moved to Texas and embraced celebrity. Can Tesla run on Autopilot?”
Technology reporter Faiz Siddiqui’s story published Tuesday covered a wide range of issues including Mr. Musk’s “questionable business moves,” use of the social media app Clubhouse, support for cryptocurrency, and his criticism of California officials and their coronavirus lockdown measures.
Musk decided to take the fight to the pages of the Post itself, referring to Bezos as a "puppet master" in response to a request for comment from the outlet.

"Tesla did not respond to repeated requests for comment. In response to emails seeking comment, Musk replied only: “Give my regards to your puppet master.” https://t.co/pGF1cr0IgP

Fox News didn’t remain silent and shared these details:
Tesla CEO Elon Musk gave a brief but loaded comment to the Washington Post this week when the newspaper reached out over a story written about him.
“Give my regards to your puppet master,” Musk replied to the paper’s request for its story “Elon Musk Moved to Texas and embraced celebrity. Can Tesla Run on Autopilot?”
Musk was almost certainly referring to Jeff Bezos, who owns the Post.
There have been reports of a brewing feuding between the two for years, frequently over their ambitions in space: Musk owns the company SpaceX and Bezos owns Blue Origin.
Hopefully, more people call out the Washington Post for their politically and financially motivated hit pieces.
