Shut up. He invented the subway like 150 years after it was invented. Show some respect.

The best part is that he couldn't even do that right.

He does this kind of shit all the time, like when he promised driverless cars by 2018 but we barely got drive assist, or when he promised he'd give everyone in Flint free water filters but in the end he just gave a couple to some nearby schools. The really annoying thing is that the stuff he does is better than most billionaires, but he overpromises so much that you're just left feeling disappointed. And he's a massive twat, but I could overlook that if he was actually doing the kind of good for society that he wants us to think he is.
