Former President Donald Trump continued his war of words against Elon Musk in a post on Truth Social last night:

“When Elon Musk came to the White House asking me for help on all of his many subsidized projects, whether it’s electric cars that don’t drive long enough, driverless cars that crash, or rocketships to nowhere, without which subsidies he’d be worthless, and telling me how he was a big Trump fan and Republican, I could have said, “drop to your knees and beg,” and he would have done it…”

But Musk’s reaction is probably not what the former president was hoping for:

And then Musk tweeted out a Gif of old man Grandpa Simpson yelling at a cloud:

Oh, but neither of the was done. Trump added:

“…Now Elon should focus on getting himself out of the Twitter mess because he could owe $44 billion for something that’s perhaps worthless. Also, lots of competition for electric cars!”

And Musk tweeted in response, “Oh the irony lol” (we assume in regard to the ongoing SEC and federal investigation of Truth Social):

We will also point out that Musk’s “lol” response might be a little premature as he has his own problems to deal with after he backed out of the Twitter deal:

This is Musk’s “Lehman moment” as is he’s going bye-bye?
