The Atlantic’s insufferable staff writer David Frum appears to have been triggered that the world’s richest man insulted him on Twitter.
The Post Millennial released a report on Frum’s political hypocrisy. Frum went after Tesla CEO Elon Musk for being allegedly uncouth in posting a satirical meme. The meme compared Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler following the former’s forceful crackdown on truckers protesting Canada’s draconian COVID-19 policies. The Post Millennial pointed out that Frum is the last person who should complain about Musk’s meme. In November 2020, Frum compared the Million MAGA March in Washington, D.C., to a picture of a Nazi rally. Musk decimated Frum for his sanctimony in a response to The Post Millennial report on Twitter: “Hypocritical megadouche!” Frum didn’t take kindly to Musk’s swipe and whined that Musk was trolling him: “Isn't it kind of worrying that a major corporate figure would be gullible enough to rely on a tweet from the @TPostMillennial as an information source?”
Frum must not have realized that The Post Millennial had embedded his own tweet comparing pro-Trump events to Nazi rallies in its report.
Hypocritical megadouche!— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) February 20, 2022
Frum then arbitrarily compared his exchange with Musk to the experiences of his “female colleagues at @TheAtlantic.” Really.
Serious point. I got trolled tonight by a man with 74 million Twitter followers. My mentions are filled with sludge as a result, but on balance- nothing to write home about. Now I contrast my experience with what has happened to female colleagues at @TheAtlantic & elsewhere ...— David Frum (@davidfrum) February 21, 2022
If Frum’s behavior wasn’t cringe worthy enough, he even took to pleading his followers to do business with Musk’s competitor Ford.
