Nice try to dodge the question, I'll ask it in another way: what's the difference between (1) presenting a fake product to entice investors to invest in your company and (2) presenting a fake product to entice investors to approve the takeover of another company?

Where did I ever say that Tesla did/does nothing wrong?

What's different is everything else. They're very very very very very different companies that happen to have some overlap in certain aspects (exaggeration, misleading claims). That doesn't mean that they'll end up in the same place, and you can't handwave away the fact that Nikola doesn't seem to have anything else than smoke and mirrors while Tesla does have a bunch of real strong products and real high-velocity development capacity and real manufacturing capacity and a very strong brand, etc.

Most car companies promise you 30 and deliver 32, hurrah!

Musk promises 100 and delivers 75, boo!
