Hunter Biden has unleashed a scathing attack on Tesla CEO Elon Musk, alleging he is unconcerned about free speech and democracy and dubbing him the world's "dumbest smart person."
In an interview on the Moby Podcast, President Joe Biden's son also accused Musk of spreading lies about him and called the X owner a "very damaged human being."
Musk replied on X by criticising Hunter Biden over the infamous, lewd recordings seized from a laptop he abandoned at a computer repair shop in Delaware in 2019.
“Exactly what ‘misinformation’ is he talking about?” Musk asked.
“The dude made so many videos of himself doing crime that he should get an award for cinematography!”
The 80-minute conversation with musician-turned-podcaster Moby took place in Biden's art studio and was broadcast on Friday, although when it was taped is unknown. Late Thursday, Biden was charged with nine new federal tax-related counts.
During the conversation, Biden claimed that SpaceX CEO Elon Musk was a hypocrite who had no understanding of the US political system.
“Elon Musk doesn’t care about the goddamn First Amendment. He doesn't care about anybody but himself,” Biden said.
“Elon Musk doesn’t care about democracy, Elon Musk doesn’t care about our freedom to vote."
“Is there any time that you ever saw anything from him that has any rational defence of democracy, of what we’ve created here as Americans, of his adopted country, this incredible experiment that we’ve engaged in here?”
