Elon Musk fires back at Biden over climate change tweet

Twitter CEO Elon Musk clapped back at President Biden on Thursday after a tweet boasted about the progress he’s made in his fight against climate change.

“In my first year in office, we’ve protected more land and water than any other president since John F. Kennedy.” Biden tweeted. “We have also made the largest investment to date in the fight against climate change. Today we are building on that momentum by protecting more natural wonders.”

The post got the typical replies, with users asking about student loan reductions, comparing the President’s statements to the reality of Bigfoot riding the Loch Ness Monster, and some people praising the President for his accomplishments.

In recent weeks, eyes have been on a potential banking crisis, the Fed’s rate hike and the rollercoaster ride in stock markets.

As concerns over bank stability continue to mount, Biden’s approval rating reportedly fell this month to nearly an all-time low of just 38%.
