Why would I put any weight whatsoever behind what Elon Musk says about it?  Do you think he made an actual informed opinion about, and if so, how do you know this from a one-lined tweet? 

What you’re doing is called an ‘argument from authority’ and assuming, because he carries some sort of gravitas for you that he must be correct on the issue. 

What he tweeted was a political opinion.  He has no special authority whatsoever for anyone to take his opinion seriously on the matter.  He just as likely got his info from Theo Fleury on Fox News when he told them there are 50,000 trucks.

My point was that Elon Musk is not anti-science (clearly) or anti-vaccine, but he's not a big fan of lockdowns and mandates.  He's not a dumb nutter.  This isn't an anti-vaccine protest, it's about government mandates.
