Larry David Once Asked Elon Musk If He Wanted ‘To Murder Kids In School’

Comedian Larry David confronted Elon Musk at a wedding in 2022 to express his displeasure with the billionaire’s political leanings, according to a new biography.

The interaction was recorded in author Walter Isaacson’s recently released book “Elon Musk,” per The New York Post. Isaacson wrote about how David went up to the billionaire Tesla CEO while they were both attending the nuptials of UFC and WWE owner Ari Emanuel in St. Tropez.

The “Seinfeld” creator allegedly asked Musk: “Do you just want to murder kids in schools?” which was likely a reference to the Uvalde school shooting and resulting calls for gun reform from the Left. The tragedy occurred a few days before Emanuel’s wedding.

“No, no,” Musk said as he appeared “baffled” and “annoyed,” per the biography. “I’m anti-kid murder,” the SpaceX owner added.

“Then how could you vote Republican?” David retorted.

Isaacson said David confirmed the interaction did happen.

“His tweets about voting Republican because Democrats were the party of division and hate were sticking in my craw,” David told the author. “Even if Uvalde never happened, I probably would have brought it up, because I was angry and offended.”

MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-anchor Joe Scarborough said he found the exchange “pretty amusing” when David told him about it. 

“I had told Ari I was not a big fan of Elon, so he seated me with him,” Scarborough said. David was put at the table as well.

Emanuel told the author that he had no bad intentions when making the wedding seating arrangement. He’s quoted as saying, “I actually thought that would be a great table.”

While Musk appeared to have Democratic leanings in the past, he has seemingly moved to a more pro-free speech stance and is perceived to be more closely aligned with Republicans. His most dramatic move was purchasing the social media platform Twitter, now rebranded as X, in response to their censorship policies.

“Unless the woke mind virus, which is fundamentally anti-science, anti-merit, and anti-human in general, is stopped, civilization will never become multiplanetary,” Musk told Isaacson in the book, as The Daily Wire previously reported.
