Elon Musk announces support for Andrew Yang


NEIL: THIS IS THE BEST NEWS ANDREW YANG HAS EVER HEARD. THE GUY IS RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, JUST GOT THE BACKING OF ELON MUSK AS AN IDEAL PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE. YOU KNOW, THAT CAME OUT OF THE BLUE. I DON’T KNOW WHETHER IT MOVES THE NEEDLE BUT WHAT DO YOU THINK?>>YEAH, IT’S CERTAINLY INTERESTING TO HEAR ELON MUSK COME OUT SO EARLY ALREADY AND SAY HE SUPPORTS ANDREW YANG, WHO ACCORDING TO THE POLLS, HASN’T BEEN NECESSARILY ONE OF THE TOP CONTENDERS SO FAR. BUT WHAT’S REALLY INTERESTING ABOUT ANDREW YANG IS SOMETHING THAT AXIOS HAS REPORTED ON A LOT, HE REALLY DOES HAVE A FOLLOWING AND THE PEOPLE WHO DO FOLLOW HIM, FOLLOW HIM PASSIONATELY. HE CERTAINLY HAS A BASIS OF PEOPLE WHICH NOW INCLUDES ELON MUSK WHO REALLY SPORTS SOME OF HIS MORE PROGRESSIVE IDEAS AND WILLINGNESS TO CHANGE HIS MIND AND FIND SOLUTIONS TO PROBLEMS. NEIL: YOU KNOW, I THINK HE WAS THE FIRST OUT THE GATE WITH THIS GIVE EVERY AMERICAN $500 OR $1,000, THEN OTHERS QUICKLY FOLLOWED.>>IT JUST SEEMS AS IF IT’S PLAYING LEAPFROG IN TERMS OF THE DEMOCRATIC CONTENDERS THAT IF ONE MAKES A SUGGESTION THAT ISN’T AT LEAST PUSHED BACK AT THEM, THEY TEND TO EMBRACE THAT AS WELL, BECAUSE THEY WANT TO DIFFERENTIATE THEMSELVES ON OTHER THINGS BUT NOT CREATE A WEDGE TO BE COMPARED VERSUS THE OTHER CANDIDATES.>>THIS WHOLE UNIVERSAL BASIC INCOME THING KIND OF SCOFFED AT AND THROWING OUT BY A LOT OF PEOPLE WHEN IT COMES OUT BUT NOT IN A COMMUNITY THAT LOOKS AT ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE. THAT’S WHAT ELON MUSK KIND OF LIVES IN THAT WORLD. SO WHEN PEOPLE THINK ABOUT THAT AND TALK ABOUT IT AND SAY THE ROBOTS ARE COMING TO TAKE OVER AND THEY ARE, TO SOME EXTENT, BUT THAT HAVE THE MOST AGGRESSIVE PREDICTIONS OUT THERE ABOUT HOW MANY JOBS ARE REALLY AT RISK, THOSE ARE THE PEOPLE THAT HAVE ACTUALLY HAD THOSE CONVERSATIONS ALREADY ABOUT HEY, LISTEN, WHAT ELSE CAN WE DO BUT WE HAVE TO GIVE PEOPLE A STIPEND OR MONEY. IN THE GENERAL POPULATION WHERE PEOPLE HAVEN’T REALLY THOUGHT ABOUT IT YET, IT’S LIKE THAT’S STUPID, IT WILL NEVER WORK. IN THAT COMMUNITY, THAT’S WHY IT KIND OF MAKES SENSE. I DON’T KNOW IF IT MART I DON’T KNOW IF IT MATTERS BUT IT MAKES SENSE WHY ELON MUSK HAS HIS ENDORSEMENT. NEIL: WASN’T HIS PREMISE AND OTHERS WHO ESPOUSE THIS, IT LESSENS THE LIKELIHOOD YOU WILL NEED INDIRECT HELP FROM THE GOVERNMENT, IF IT GOES DIRECTLY TO YOU, YOU USE IT AS YOU WISH, IT LESSENS THE LOAD ON UNCLE SAM?>>EXACTLY. THAT’S THE IDEA BEHIND IT. IT REALLY IS, IT BECOMES MORE RELEVANT AS WE GO INTO THIS AGE OF AUTOMATION AND AS A.I. BECOMES MORE PART OF YOUR DAY-TO-DAY LIFE. AS JOBS WE WOULD TYPICALLY SEE AS JOBS FOR MIDDLE INCOME AMERICA START DISAPPEARING AND AS AUTOMATION TAKES OVER THOSE JOBS, THE IDEA IS THAT EVERYONE NEEDS TO HAVE SOME KIND OF UNIVERSAL BASIC INCOME AND AS YOU SAID, BY PUTTING A PROGRAM IN PLACE LIKE ANDREW YANG HAS SUGGESTED, THAT MAY ACTUALLY HELP THE GOVERNMENT NOT HAVE TO HELP AMERICANS OUT WHO AREN’T ABLE TO HAVE JOBS OR WHO ARE IN POVERTY AND AGAIN, THESE ARE THE IDEAS THAT ARE COMING OUT NOW AS WE MOVE INTO THIS NEW ERA OF AUTOMATION AND TECHNOLOGY. NEIL: YOU WOULD BUY IT, RIGHT?>>LOOK, STYLISTICALLY THIS IS NOT A SURPRISE TO ME. IT’S NOT A SURPRISE TO ME THAT ELON MUSK CHOSE THE ONE GUY ON THE STAGE WHO CAN’T WEAR A TIE AND IS FROM SILICON VALLEY. BUT IMPORTANTLY, EVEN THOUGH I MIGHT NOT AGREE WITH HIM —

  1. Elon Musk you are supporting the right person, that is ANDREW YANG. Thank you so much for your support. You had been chosen the right one.

  2. Over time, even the people who disagree with Yang start to warm up to him. And no, he doesn’t need a tie and I hope he doesn’t start wearing one. Also symbolic of how he’s not a phony career politician.

  3. The community that is discussing these issues are the brightest minds in the world. People thought what Elon was doing was super unrealistic, but look at us now. Every car company is adapting to what Elon has started.

  4. "You know were the Talking Heads couldn't stop talk about? The fact I didn't wear a tie".

    This video proves Yang's point even more. Good for the Blondie btw who is for UBI.

  5. They actually didn't just slam his ideas down and talk him down. The biggest problem they had with him was not wearing a tie. 😂

  6. They said we ain't ready for a black president? Then it happen. Are we ready for an adian president? It migjt happen.

  7. People talking about robots taking jobs, "They are, to some extent." Said by someone who has no idea what he is talking about. Idiots. People who don't understand tech have no place leading our future.

  8. Sounds to me they’re now trying to smear Elon saying things in a way that as if the “AI world” is imaginary, doesn’t exist…do not deny science, people. After watching some in-depth podcasts I now find this type of around-the-table “news room” talk rather “fake”, like everyone has a role and is playing along…maybe that’s why Trump called it “fake news”, maybe that’s why Andrew Yang called the presidential debate a reality show…WAKE UP MSM!!!!!

  9. I've lost respect for these FOX Newscast – it seems that they are not sure of what before opening their lips a few said examples they are not sure of Langs campaign giving out $500 OR $1000 and the other about the tie come on people don't you read or do a little research before you put yourselves before a camera? We all know it is $1000 that is proposed and no other and a tie does not prove anything if anything he got clothes on you should be happy about that. People of Fox this county could use your help not your childish comments regarding individuals trying to make a difference.

  10. "If you don't wear a tie, I can't take anything you say seriously." If you wear a tie, it makes you a more credible person. Is that what these people are thinking? A tie is a thing that you put on and wear. It has nothing to do with ideas. It doesn't signify whether your ideas are good or bad. You should be able to just use your brain and realize a good idea when you hear one.

  11. Compared to entitlement programs that have an army of federal employees to conduct means testing and etc., Andrew Yang's Freedom Dividend is small government. Receive VAT tax money from giant corporations and give it no questions asked directly to the American people. Yang 2020! FORWARD!

  12. "The opposite of Donald Trump is an asian man who likes math".
    Donald Trump wears a long stupid tie.
    Therefore Andrew Yang wears no tie!
    He's playing 4D Chess!!!

  13. "He's from Silicon Valley"
    Seems like this misconception has been persisting for some time. He is from New York and spent most, if not, all of his career in New York. Just because he's asian, knows some people from silicon valley and has a deeper understanding of modern technologies implications on our lives and the future, doesn't mean hes from silicon valley.

  14. Lost all respect for Yang when you called Trump a white supremacist at the Iowa star fair. He’s riding the far left train now. He’s not being real, now he’s desperate to say anything to get support.

  15. Worry about your future not the tie. China already made a hologram to read the news. They'll find the hottest girl hologram and you're gone

  16. “You need to wear a tie”. Talking heads are still at it. They are only proving Yang right that they don’t care about the important issues and knit pick over whether he’s wearing a tie or not. Pathetic

  17. Elon Musk been pushing the idea for Universal Income, He definitely was going to support Andrew Yang, it’s no surprise really if you know about Elon Musk.

  18. Interesting how these conservative channels struggle to find footing when talking about Yang. It's clear they haven't done their research yet still just want to fight him because he's running democrat. Since they have nothing to debate with, they resort to talking about his tie. Something he specifically addressed in his recent debates.

    They are so far in Trumpland they don't see the bigger picture. So combative they can't reason that his proposals are trying to help all Americans.

  19. I guess I won't vote for Yang due to the fact that he doesn't wear a tie. He rather looks like a normal human being.. can't trust the guy…

  20. Biden will screw yang over just like how Hillary screwed Bernie. Sounds like a good guy but the democRATS won't make him the main candidate.

  21. Andrew Yang already qualified for the September debate! So I wouldn’t say he’s not one of the top contenders when he is.

  22. Jobs have been gone! And it’s gonna be gone soon! Look at blockbusters, Payless Shoes, Charlotte Russe, Wet Seal, Sears, Kmart, malls, taxi cabs, Charming Charlie, Men’s Wearhouse, Sports Authority, Gander Mountain… those are just the beginning… they were big stores. Automation and AI is already here. People just turn the blind eye. So many manufacturing jobs have been given to robots. This is the future and no politician is addressing it besides Andrew Yang.

  23. Andrew Yang was right, the talking heads would rather make a big deal because he didn’t wear a tie versus actually talking about the real issues.

  24. I hate ties, they're uncomfortable and make me hot. Let's untie ourselves from these archaic norms and get freed from these 20th century solutions to 21st century problems.

  25. There trying so hard to just tear this guy smh rich trying to stay rich an stop others from trying to get a leg up

  26. "Gotta have a tie"
    Well when Trump started, people said "you gotta not be racist, you gotta not be a sexual predator, you gotta not be a total asshol" yet heeeere we are

  27. Breaking News: The Yang administration cuts military budget in half, and gives it to SpaceX. Reach for the stars. Lol

  28. I'm 57 and have never donated to any presidential candidate, until now. And have NEVER been so hopeful then I do now about our future president Andrew Yang.

  29. on the matters of substance, the panel has nothing but supportive things to say. and then there's the issue of no tie. i understand older voters might take umbrage with such a seemingly trivial thing, so i hope younger voters will step up

  30. If someone's lack of tie is a big deal to you, you need to immediately quit your job of being a pundit and rethink your values.

  31. Hi Yang Gang Family – I got lucky & found an AWESOME Andrew Yang Song! Let's get it out there. The
    Artist even placed subtitles so we can sing along. Very, very addicting! (Pardon that the Composer is bare-chested. A great voice though.)
    Look for the Humanity First Banner.
    Title: New Andrew Yang Song
    Channel: Leo Francovich

  32. Andrew Yang has to win…

    I voted for Trump the first time I'm not voting for a second time he's destroyed this economy by giving all these corporate handouts which is destroying the real marketplace economy jobs…

    I was listening to the faith radio today and they had a News segment at the beginning and they said that Trump said that you have to re-elect them or else the economy's Go to tank and your 401k are going to take a massive hit..

    All Trump is doing is charging things on a on our deficit who's destroying our American Dollar by now actually paying for for thinks he's just charging a lifestyle that doesn't even exist…

    Andrew Yang is a true patriot who actually wants to pay for his policies..

  33. You don't have to ware a tie…his ideas are forward and superior. He has not taken any money from the billionaires or the Banks like other candidate. He really has the everyday citizen in mind. And a lot of the Trump voters i think will see he is going after there problems they face in the American Economy.

  34. Super important to point out his idea of democracy dollars to help wash out lobbyist money!!!! People will mater again to politicians!!
