If Tesla wanted to do a stock buyback or had investors lined up to take the company private (at a lower price) I guess it would make sense. But I don't think he's doing this... on Rogan he was selling as big as ever, "It's not a car, it's happiness" and all of that shit. If he was constantly talking about production delays then I'd give more merit to this theory.

Everyone knows he has production delays.
If he was deliberately acting crazy and knocking Tesla he'd permanently ruin his reputation.
SpaceX would be screwed, too.
I'm suspicious about his motives...

So you think he's knocking on the downlow, that's interesting.

Same, lots of weird stuff going on. It's probably all ambien related.

How about this, the JRE weed smoking podcast was cover for the Chief Accounting Officer resigning a month into the job over SEC concerns. The podcast was PR with foreknowledge.

This makes the most sense to me. Then with the timing the media can only spin it as "They're quitting because of the JRE interview" and the whole thailand twitter ordeal is folded nicely in to the past. Which Joe also never mentioned or brought up in the whole 2.5 hours...
