Joe Biden and Elon Musk.
- Elon Musk mocked Joe Biden for reading out instructions on his teleprompter in a televised speech.
- The President was outlining his executive order following the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade ruling.
- However, Biden has been mocked for reading the instructions “end of quote” and “read line again”.
Elon Musk mocked Joe Biden after he made another gaffe during an address about his new executive order following the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade ruling.
The President was speaking after signing an executive order to provide protection to women seeking abortions in response to the reversal of Roe v. Wade by the court on June 24.
During the speech, Biden also read out instructions after a quote ended: “It is noteworthy that the percentage of women who registered to vote and cast a ballot is consistently higher than the percentage of the men who do so. End of quote.”
He followed: “Repeat the line. Women are not without…”
Among those who mocked him were Washington Times columnist Tim Young as well as the Tesla CEO.
Musk, who has been bickering in public for months with the President, tweeted on Friday along with a meme: “Whoever controls the teleprompter is the real President!”

The feud between the President and Musk started when Tesla was not invited to an EV summit at the White House in 2021, despite accounting for about three in four electric car sales in the US over the past three years.
Earlier this year, Musk called Biden a “damp sock puppet in human form” after the President left Tesla out of a discussion about EV production.
The world’s richest man previously said anyone over the age of 70 should be barred from running for political office. Biden and his predecessor in the White House, Donald Trump, are 79 and 76 respectively.
Although the US sets a minimum age of 35 years for presidential candidates, there is no upper age limit.
