@AC - what is certain is that he is member #1 of the Elon Musk Fan Club. It would seem that he is unraveling with he recent behaviour at press conferences.
As for people being out to get him - no. Observing that he has clay feet does not mean he is being attacked. To date the overwhelming coverage of the man has been positive to the point of sycophancy, so any real analysis jars with the worshipful regard expected.
