I have not met Musk face to face like you must have done to be able to publicly call him a LIAR.
Why?

I can't imagine for a moment why somebody needs to have met somebody in person to call them a liar. Doesn't make sense at all. Are you able to expound on this belief?

Technically, you have to know someone's intent to deceive to call them a "liar". I think Musk believes all of his predictions, and aside from the going private tweet, they have been substantially accurate, just not on time.

I agree intent is a critical part of a lie.

As for Musk's predictions, he has made so many that have been so wildly, shockingly wrong that he's either a liar or a fool. We can probably all agree he's not a fool.

I'm sure we can agree the Model S is not an affordable car. At least the Model 3 is more affordable than the S. But they do seem to be chugging away working against this plan.

He's said literally dozens of things that were patently untrue. And when somebody time-constrains something and it doesn't happen, it means they were wrong, quite simply.

Many things when he's said them are so preposterous as to be clearly untrue and impossible, and roundly mocked the day the statements are made. Last year was probably the peak of this. Will be interesting to see how 2020 pans out.

Hate to poke the bear, but can you be more specific? Not meeting planned milestones doesn't make someone a liar. He's also not the only CEO to do this. He just gets more attention for it.

The guy takes moon-shots for a living. He has accomplished things everyone said were impossible. If some of his ideas end up being truly impossible, should we complain about his personal belief that he could achieve it?
