To be fair, he says some dumb stuff...that Twitter fight about his toy submarine during the Thai boy cave rescue comes to mind.
You completely misunderstood that one. Most people did.

He's not a public speaker. Never has been. He's an engineer with money.
Ja, it's weird that someone would be disappointed to find out a famous dude is a human with quirks like the rest of us.

He unfortunately succumbed to peer pressure from the interviewer who was looking for a news story.

You could 'smell' the ambush coming from a mile away though.

The interviewer keeps checking the person to his right with a nervous glint in his eye so as to assure himself he has backup in case things don't go as planned.

On the other hand, he might have been thinking that he has this nerd bagged, and he was going to go down hard.

Also, it seems people thought Elon was some sort of superbeing when they are surprised that he acts like a human.

It is actually a huge compliment when you think about it.

Too much overthinking here... its the JRE, like having a coffee, whiskey... if you're going on, odds are you're smoking it up. No 'inteviewer looking for news story'/ambushes etc, its no different to the alcohol he had too, wheres the 'zomg musk drank on JRE' news story... this is just media being the parasites they've become, followed by the sm manufactured outrage.
Conspiracy theorists reckon he's driving his share price down to buy back before a big announcement.
As above, the 'theorists' are overthinking it

What if Bob Marley built electric motors and smoked a joint on live television, would there be a story?

This is the first time I've seen him speak. Complete !rsehol! status confirmed.
