Elon Musk Hosted ‘SNL’ And Everyone Agrees It Was A Cursed Mess
Yes, he did just compare himself to OJ Simpson.
Between Dogecoin and one of the worst Mario cosplays ever to be put to screen, Elon Musk hosting of Saturday Night Live is making waves for all the wrong reasons.
The Tesla and SpaceX founder’s stint as guest host on the sketch comedy show was live-streamed on YouTube internationally for the first time, reflecting the huge interest. Which meant the whole world was watching as Musk compared himself to OJ Simpson, and falsely claimed to be the first person with Aspergers to host the show.

For starters, it was SNL alumni, Dan Aykroyd (Ghostbusters) who was the first known person with Aspergers to host.
Musk then proceeded to lament his reputation, saying that, “people are reduced to the dumbest thing they ever did.” He then elaborates, explaining, “It’s like reducing O.J. Simpson to murder.”
Elon Musk acts as well as he designs trucks.

If you really think about it, Elon Musk’s announcement on SNL is inspiring. It really shows what any of us on the spectrum can achieve if we work hard enough and inherit Zambian emerald mine money.

Elon Musk went on SNL and said No Cap in a skit, Dogecoin down the drain.

After a handful of mediocre sketches, ranging from the bizarre courtroom Mario cosplay sketch (featuring his wife, Grimes doing a terrible Princess Peach impression) to the deeply unfunny. In one segment, Musk played a “financial expert” on a news show, attempting to explain crypto-currency. Musk used his own currency, Dogecoin, to demonstrate, describing it as a “hustle.”
But it all gets inexplicably stranger and cringier. In what can only be assumed is a segment for Mothers Day, Musk drags out his mother, Maye Musk. As a duo, the mother and son then proceed to deliver a stilted exchange, apparently highlighting Musk’s genius from a young age.
Well SNL sadly helped Elon Musk whitewash his history of spreading lies about COVID, defying Covid restrictions that resulted in 440 Tesla Employees contracting Covid and making insensitive comments about the transgender community.

Elon Musk on SNL is even more horrifying than I'd imagined. His opening monologue was like, "What's up, I have Asperger's and I am here to positively represent folks like me! Here is a series of jokes about how funny I think it is that OJ Simpson beat and murdered his wife…"

Elon Musk about to pull some Lex Luthor shit and SNL (per usual) is trying to show the world he some hardworking guy instead of being the product of a slave labor using family, created by a man (his dad) who had a kid by his wife and stepdaughter.

“Do you remember when I was 12 I created my own video game?” Elon Musk asks. His mother replies, “you turned that video game about space into reality.”
Musk concludes, “our reality might be a video game and we’re all just computer simulations being played by a teenager on another planet.”
If our reality is a simulation controlled by a teenager, I’d like to request a transfer to one in which Elon Musk, a real-life cartoonish billionaire supervillain isn’t hosting comedy shows.
