It's a $44 billion epic mystique by mosque. And I think right now it's really been a quick sense situation. One that I've thinks is pulling Tesla along with it. Tesla stock has been hammered this year and I've says investor patience is running thin still he thinks Tesla is placed in the EV market is solid. Our thing is the one of the most transformational companies along with Apple. But he says Musk's performance at Twitter is, quote, a category 5 storm that's Musk inflicted that needs to end.
