If this is true I ask, why?

A SpaceX flight attendant said Elon Musk exposed himself and propositioned her for sex, documents show. The company paid $250,000 for her silence.

Gotta hand it to him, if you're looking to assemble a hardcore legal team, recruiting random people via Twitter is the way to goi.

And not only that - they'll be internet sourced lawyers who only answer to him!

Imagine being Tesla General counsel right now. Jaysus.

Why what?

Why did the reporter ask Musk about it?

Or why did Musk do it?

It puzzles me why people of wealth do things like that. Bill Cosby was one of my biggest dosappointments.

It's the power they believe that comes with the wealth.

This statement has no useful value. Try posting things that show some thought, some interest in others, some expertise, some ideas. Trolling decent folk because you get off on indecent folk is none of those things.

There are currently multiple lawsuits against him for racist practices at Tesla and half a dozen sexual harassment lawsuits against him. That's in addition to the lawsuits against Tesla for exploding cars and cars autolocking people in when cars are on fire.

If people are appalled by that, I would call that reaction appropriate. If your conclusion after all this is that he is simply a "clown" then I could describe you as being triggered by your own lack of information and bad judgment. Maybe deal with your own trigger issues instead of garbage troll posting where you pathetically try to project your own ignorance onto others.

I did too. He did a lot to help black entertainers. He did a lot of good for the Black community as a whole. It's amazing how well he hid his true self. He certainly had me fooled.

I just finished watching all four parts. Two of the people interviewed said this about Cosby: He's a rapist who once had a huge TV show; he's a master of his craft . . . comedy, acting, raping.

I watched all 4 episodes. I came away disappointed and conflicted.

Bill has a sex problem. What he was convicted of doing is shameful and tarnishes his legacy. He deserved the penalty he received.

However, the many positive things he did for Black actors and Black stuntmen/women shouldn't be overlooked. He was also active in Black community causes.

I didn't like the way he responded to the Black plight at the end of his career.

I'm not forgiving or condoning what he did. I'm merely pointing to some of the good things he did.

I don't feel sorry for him but I don't have any pride. When I watch reruns of the Cosby Show they just aren't the same.

Bill is a SERIAL RAPIST. And that was a "problem" for every woman he raped.

I used to love Woody Allen movies and thought many were genius. Then when I realized he molested his daughter and then married his adopted daughter, I never watched another of his movies again. It tainted everything I thought I knew about him. As far as I'm concerned it cancelled out any good or positive he did in the world. Same with Cosby.

"He was a serial rapist who ruined the lives of at least 60 women, but he also did good things..."

No. Too bad. He tainted it all.

OK, Linda. I understand and respect your opinion. He may affect you that way, he doesn't me. I also look at the lives he improved.

To me, Bill is a two-sided coin, heads (good), and tails (ass). If you will, please allow me my feelings.

Bill's not off the hook yet.

I dunno, but normal people's expectations of not being sexually harassed and flashed at the company via our current laws seems to be a LAW thing, and not an extreme left thing.

Are to comment?

I won't call a multi-billionaire a clown. To me, Musk is the epitome of self-entitlement. He's of the ilk that believe they're above the law. Money is a character, personality molding ingredient.

What do you mean by "how triggered extreme lefts are with him?"

Ive never found him to be self entitled, but my dealings have only been business. I don’t think that anyone is triggered by him potentially buying Twitter, but he was the poster child for the dreamers who think that we can do fine without fossil fuels. Once it was announced that he was buying Twitter people began fearing that he would balance the rhetoric on that platform. I used to visit Twitter to keep up on Cardinal baseball scores but now that I found a better way to do that elsewhere I don’t visit it at all. It is a cesspool of ideas.

Are you saying you have had business dealings with Elon Musk yourself? Can you explain a little?

Yes, one of my clients is Space X at VSFB, we handle all of their hazardous waste. I have ran into him a few times there since he theoretically pays the bills. We are getting rid of some explosives after the launch tomorrow (if it goes as planned).
