As much as Tesla CEO Elon Musk seems to love to dabble with the far-right, it seems there's now no love lost between him and former Republican President Donald Trump.

After Musk recently said he never voted for a Republican in his life until last month, Trump called him a "bullsh*t artist" at a rally in Alaska over the weekend and claimed Musk told him he voted for him in 2020.

Now it seems a bit of a feud has erupted between the two silver spooners. Musk has been coming for the former President on Twitter.

Yesterday, he posted a tweet saying essentially Trump was lying about his vote.

Trump also mocked Musk for backing out of his much ballyhooed purchase of Twitter during his speech at the Alaska event, which was to promote former Republican Governor Sarah Palin's House run.

He said:

"Elon is not going to buy Twitter. Where did you hear that before? From me. He's got himself a mess."

He then went on to claim he had Musk's vote.

"You know, he said the other day, 'I've never voted for a Republican.' I said I didn't know that."
"So he's another bullsh*t artist."

Today, Musk directed an even more pointed response than a simple "not true" at the former President in which he said it was time for Trump to call it a day on his political career.

Musk wrote:

"I don’t hate the man, but it’s time for Trump to hang up his hat & sail into the sunset."

He also offered some unsolicited advice to the Democratic Party.

"Dems should also call off the attack—don’t make it so that Trump’s only way to survive is to regain the Presidency."

In a follow-up tweet, Musk was even more specific in his criticisms of Trump, calling out both his bombastic style and his advanced age.

Trump has yet to respond, since, you know, he's banned from Twitter forever.

Others on Twitter had plenty to say.

Many people found this feud between two trust fund egomaniacs nothing short of hilarious.

Musk—who also signaled support for far-right Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis in his expected bid for the presidency in 2024—tweeted DeSantis would easily defeat Democratic President Joe Biden.

Let's hope he's as wrong about that prediction as he is correct in his summations of Trump.
