*NOTE: Newsthink reached out to Errol Musk but did not hear back in time for this video. When he did eventually respond, he said he had nothing more to add other than what he said in the Rolling Stone article found here https://www.rollingstone.com/culture/culture-features/elon-musk-the-architect-of-tomorrow-120850/. We have also included Errol's comments in our video on Elon Musk's painful childhood https://youtu.be/O7XkUSETXT4
