Elon Musk took a hard left turn from comedy as he hosted “SNL” Saturday night … announcing he has Asperger’s.
He made the announcement at the beginning of his monologue, saying at first he spoke in monotone. He then said he’s the first “SNL” host with Asperger’s.
Asperger Syndrome is a neurodevelopmental disorder. It manifests itself with major difficulties in engaging in social interactions and nonverbal communication. It is characterized as an autism spectrum disorder. It does not affect one’s intelligence or language abilities. People with autism often exhibit physical clumsiness.
Elon was funny … he seemed relaxed and was super self-deprecating. He joked about how he smoked a joint on Joe Rogan’s podcast and now everyone thinks he’s a pothead.
He also told a OJ Simpson joke … that OJ too had hosted twice “and he killed it.”
Elon, who’s 49, brought his mom, Maye Musk on stage for a sweet moment that was also kinda funny.
We got this post up quick, so we’re still watching … but so far, so good.
