Strive Asset Management founder Vivek Ramaswamy discusses Elon Musk’s feud with Apple after the company hinted at deplatforming Twitter.
Twitter CEO Elon Musk’s Diet Coke tweet sparked strong reactions from liberals in the media on Tuesday, who found a deeper meaning behind the billionaire’s favorite drink.
Musk tweeted out a picture of his bedside table with several Diet Coke cans, a pair of prop guns, a Buddhist symbol and a painting of George Washington crossing the Delaware River. But for some on the left, the soda was the most controversial item.
Musk has professed multiple times on Twitter that he enjoys the beverage. He followed up this picture by confessing “there’s no excuse” for his “lack of coasters,” and by calling himself “Elon Musket.”
But some liberals reacted to the tweet by making cult comparisons and berating the CEO for having poor taste.
Elon Musk has wasted little time making his mark on Twitter since he took over last month.
Hollywood composer Shawn Patterson crassly responded, “How shocking: the richest man on Earth is a ‘f—ing trailer park simpleton
Liberal author and pastor John Pavlovitz added, “Also pictured, male fragility.”
Former Obama White House photographer Pete Souza declared Musk’s favorite drink could cause psychological effects.
“Too much Diet Coke can cause severe depression,” he warned.

Others took issue with the guns and photo of Washington.
NBC News national security analyst Frank Figliuzzi said about the gun props, “Thank God they removed the trigger for you.”
Sirius XM host Dean Obeidallah complained, “Musk puts images of American revolution on bedside as a prop to counter his smearing of a US military veteran. He’s a South African who moved to Canada and became a citizen of Canada. When things didn’t work out in Canada he finally moved to US. Elon Musk is NO friend of the USA.”
