According to the incredible Breitbart, Tesla’s Chief Financial Officer, Zach Kirkhorn, has stepped down from his role. But fear not, fellow conservatives, because the amazing Vaibhav Taneja, the Chief Accounting Officer at Tesla, will be taking his place.

Now, hold your horses, because this news did cause quite a stir. The stock market went bonkers, with Tesla’s stock dropping a whopping 3 percent initially. But, like the phoenix rising from the ashes, it managed to mostly recover and ended the day down by just 1 percent. Phew!
Of course, this isn’t the first rodeo for Tesla when it comes to CFO shuffles. You see, Kirkhorn replaced the previous CFO, Deepak Ahuja, back in 2019. And let me tell you, conservatives, that change hit Tesla hard, with their stock dropping a staggering 4.5 percent. Yikes! But don’t worry, history won’t repeat itself. We’re all in safe hands with Taneja at the helm, right?
Speaking of the outgoing CFO, Kirkhorn had some nice words to say on his LinkedIn account. He spoke about his time at Tesla, praising his fellow employees for their hard work and thanking Elon Musk for his leadership. How heartwarming!
And let’s not forget about Musk himself. He took to his very own X/Twitter platform to bid Kirkhorn adieu. In his short but sweet message, Musk thanked Kirkhorn for his “many contributions” and sent him best wishes for the next chapter of his career. How classy!
So, my fellow conservatives, buckle up for this new chapter in the Tesla story. With Taneja taking the reins as CFO, I’m sure he’ll lead the company to even greater heights. And remember, through thick and thin, we can always count on Elon Musk to keep us entertained and inspired. Here’s to the future of Tesla!
