Delusional right wingers think Musk is one of them and on their side. Nothing could be further from the truth. Since the right is truth impaired, seeing the forrest for the trees isn't in their wheel house.
(I despise the left, but the right is literally a meme and partisanship is the worst kind of mental cancer in general)
You might be surprised how many “on the right” actually form their own opinions and are not right not left. Of course you are right that some who are exclusively “on the right” might be misled, but I think many understand that there are just some opinions of Musk they agree with.
