    I dislike that they made him say it was a hustle.

    Actually, they made him say all crypto is a hustle.

    Hahaha the feed I was watching cut out before this so I missed. Thanks for posting.

    yeah those last couple of word are what caused a 40% dip while Robinhood cashed out high and locked everyone else from selling

    Why did he say “Circulated supply of 117 billion coins of which 113 billion have already been mined???” He’s making it sound like it’s just another bitcoin with a finite supply.

    Did anyone else feel like he explained what Doge was multiple times, and yet they just badgered him anyway? If I had to explain dogecoin to a couple of idiots I would have just said “it’s a hustle” too; it’s all they understand.

    It’s a digital currency. It’s worth what people decide it’s worth, much like a beanie baby, much like a Pokemon card, much like a dollar bill. The difference between a doge and a dollar is that the doge can’t be taken to the Xerox whenever the government runs out.

    Very cogent argument. I liked the skit where the bar tender got shot and they made the gold analogy. The dollar isn’t tied to anything tangible just as crypto isn’t. We believe in the USD just as we believe in the Doge. Also, I thought Elon did a really good job. My wife and I laughed…a lot!

    I wish more of you could see how much of a mockery this segment made of dogecoin, and how much Elon did not help by not selling it as something serious that a new person should consider investing in, and then admitting it’s “just a hustle” – which, maybe it is, and maybe that’s fine, but as for hoping to see the price soar to $1 or more, that makes it much harder to do. It allows journalists, and other figures in crypto cite Musk himself calling is just a hustle, or otherwise a swindle. It makes the doge community look like fools, especially when multiple outlets are now reporting that the price dipped hard after he said it. It even briefly went below $0.50. Elon Musk didn’t do dogecoin the favor you think it did, just because he happened to call himself the Dogefather and meme “to the moon” to get you guys excited and further celebritize him.

    I’m sure this will get downvoted, and that’s whatever, but this segment deserves honest critique and not delusional rejoice. I’m currently down $1k on doge, and not planning on selling, because I don’t need to. But I don’t have a lot of optimism at the moment, after that segment. It was bad.

    God i hate this type of “humour”

    Its just not funny, i also hate the laugh tracks that always get used

  • FinishZealousideal63

    How do I save this so I can come back and view it all the time? Lol. Sorry I haven’t figured out it yet

  • 5beedy

    A funnier ending to this sketch would have been to have I’m flip it and just keep asking “but what is a dollar?” And him keep trying to answer until he runs out of waffle about federal reserves and end up with him driving off in an old fiat.

  • dogeecoiner

    Yeah… the word HUSTLE wasn’t appropriate used here. But I’m still holding 🚀

  • d_heizkierper

    Michael Che is so incredibly unfunny, shame that such a boring, uncharismatic guy is standing where Norm MacDonald once stood.

    “It’s an unstoppable financial vehicle that’s gonna take over the world” Elon Musk May 8th, 2021

  • FrankNitti1272

    Just my 2 cents.. at the end of the video when he said “To the Moon” that clearly was not scripted.. so I think he said “To the Moon” because he didn’t agree with the scripted word Hustle and therefore still ended the skit showing his support for DOGE!

    To the Moon🚀🚀🚀🚀
