Many see Elon Musk, TIME’s 2021 Man of the Year, PayPal co-founder, and current CEO of Tesla, SpaceX, and the Boring Company, as just the sort of go-getter entrepreneur that makes America great.
Though he has his detractors on the right and left, many see his innovative nature, penchant for hard work, and willingness to drive things forward as just the sort of qualities necessary to maintain America’s greatness.
One person who sees things in such a way is Kayleigh McEnany, the former White House Press Secretary. She, now a Fox host, said plenty of positive things about him during an appearance on Hannity.
In one such comment, she positively referenced Elon’s willingness to go against the grain and be himself, saying:
“I think when you look at wokeism – which is a very powerful drug – this is a man who said, ‘I’m not going to be a billionaire elite. I’m not going to just say what is woke, say what is liberal, say what is expected of me. I’m going to just be me.’ And he’s doing just that.”
Then, later, when referencing his comments about Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who he referred to as “Senator Karen,” McEnany praised him for “holding a powerful senator accountable.”
Finally, and perhaps most notably, McEnany called on Elon to get involved in politics and called him one of the most interesting Americans, saying:
“I was in the swamp. I happened to work for a non-politician President Donald J. Trump, the greatest president of our time. We need more people like Elon Musk getting in the game, and he might just be doing that.
So hey, Elon Musk, you may have a political future. We need more people like you, entrepreneurs in the swamp. It takes a lot of courage to go there and leave what’s comfortable, and he may be doing that.
[…][Elon’s] one of the most interesting people in America.”
Do you agree with Kayleigh? Should Elon get involved in politics?
