Kayleigh McEnany has message for Tesla CEO: Hey, Elon Musk, we need more entrepreneurs in the swamp


Fox News host Kayleigh McEnany revealed she’s impressed with Tesla CEO Elon Musk for being open about his views that detract from the Washington establishment, saying she hopes he’d consider a political future on “Hannity.” Thursday.

“I think if you look at wakeism – which is a very potent drug – this is a guy who said, ‘I’m not going to be a billionaire elite. I’m not just going to say what’s awake, say what’s liberal, say what I’m expected to just be myself.” And he does just that,” said the former White House press secretary.

McEnany responded to a recent feud that has broken out between Musk and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D Mass.

The rift started when Warren took a shot at Musk after he won Time’s “Person of the Year.”

Warren said, “Let’s change the counterfeit tax code so that ‘Person of the Year’ will actually pay taxes and stop dumping everyone else.”

Musk responded by calling her “Senator Karen” and adding that Warren reminds him of his friend’s “angry” mother from his childhood, who would scream in a hat.

McEnany praised Musk for “cutting the noise” and “holding a powerful senator accountable.”

When Joy Reid stepped in to defend Warren and scolded Musk for being a “selfish and disrespectful” freeloader, the SpaceX founder clapped back, saying, “(Lack of) Joy Reid is a lobbyist for Sen Karen.”

McEnany said America needs more outsiders to cut through the vertical layer of the swamp.

“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 to come into play, and maybe he just does.”

“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 behind what’s comfortable, and maybe he will .”

“He’s done the same with Bernie Sanders. I’m so impressed with him,” she added.

Musk responded to a tweet from Sanders calling for the “extremely rich to pay their fair share”.

“I keep forgetting you’re still alive,” Musk said. ‘Do you want me to sell more shares, Bernie? Say it.’

McEnany also brought up that Musk criticized President Biden’s Build Back Better agenda. He said, “[C]and the whole bill. Don’t pass it by, that’s my recommendation.”

“He’s one of the most interesting people in America,” McEnany concluded.
