Meghan McCain Slams Elon Musk and Nick Cannon For Their ‘Impregnate The Planet Mentality’

Former View Host Meghan McCain just low key put Elon Musk and Nick Cannon on blast in her op-ed for Daily Mail, calling their baby making plans “dystopian.” 

Musk, Tesla CEO and world’s richest man, posted his desire to have more children on July 7. Cannon was a comedian and TV host. 

McCain called the exchange “the creepiest tag team tweet thread in history” and compared the mentality to that of a cult leader. 

This “impregnate our planet” mentality looks creepy.

McCain mentioned also the many children the couple has. Musk and Cannon have ten kids each. Cannon is due to deliver his 8th child in the near future. McCain said that while they have both the resources and finances to sustain large families, most Americans don’t relate. 

“While Americans are trying to figure out how to pay for gas and groceries, the average cost of a surrogate can range from $90,000 to $130,000 depending on the individual arrangements,” she wrote. 


Cannon and Musk have unfortunately been raised in stereotypical Hollywood families. They’ve got kids with multiple different baby mamas and many of them at that. McCain stressed the importance of having a more traditional family unit when she encouraged having “one baby mama, one marriage, with a lot of children living under one roof.” Neither Cannon nor Musk have that. 

McCain was also not a fan of Musk’s “subtle shame factor.” She said it felt “impersonal, fatalistic, and dystopian” and thought Musk was implying “that if we all don’t have as many children as our bodies are capable of, we are not addressing some existential crisis of population decline.”

I can’t argue with her there. People should get pregnant if and when they’re ready to but I gotta give Musk and Cannon credit too. These celebrities are at least supporting new birth in a world where the killing of unborn babies is so publicized. 

Honestly, I don’t think it was as creepy as McCain pointed out and judging by many of Musk’s other tweets, I’d bet he intended the tweet to be taken more lightly than McCain did.
