    As far I recall he can still run for pretty much every office aside from president.

    "Running for office" doesn't just mean the Presidency. You can be a Senator or Representative or whatever the fuck. Schwarzenegger ran for and won the office of Governor of California, for example.

    This. POTUS and VP are the only offices I believe requiring birth as a natural born citizen. Everything else is open. But I highly doubt he'd be interested, there's a lot of transparency and disclosure in relation to that and he'd probably have to stop spending all his time shitposting on Twitter.

    To quote everyone's favourite billionaire.
    Do you know how much power I'd have to give up to be President?

    Why is Elon inserting himself in the hostage situation?
    Same reason he inserted himself when a Thai children's soccer team got stuck in a flooded cave before calling one of the divers who rescued them a pedo. Because his ego is to big for his head.

    Judging from that other billionaire who got elected, if anything he'd spend more time complaining and shitposting on Twitter.

    The Trump precedent proves otherwise.

    Naturalized citizens can still run for governor/Senate/House spots.

    Giving he's an egomaniac, I'd be on governor, since I doubt someone with that small of a dick would be satisfied with being 1 of 100+

    Now then. What state? No clue.

    The states that seem to align with him are the ones with a history of whining about carpetbaggers.

    True, though he's pretty darned popular with some Republicans in Texas like Ken Paxton, who has lodged I believe at least two different lawsuits trying to get senpai's attention. And we do know he's been cultivating his connections with Republican politicians, last time he went to DC he booked a bunch of meetings with Republican legislators, and only Republican legislators. His encounter with Minority Leader Jeffries ended up being a chance encounter.

    1: If you make it abundantly clear that you are a threat to everyone around you, you have no right to be surprised when everyone around you decides that banding together for mutual protection is probably a good idea.
    2: Yeah, nobody's dumb enough to let the Fox Bear inside the Chicken Coop.
    3: And nothing much changed except the old country re-branded with a new name and slightly less communism.
    4: See 2. A decade or two hasn't made them any more stupid than they were before.
    5: Russia (among others), for reasons that the intervening years and Russian land grabs have obviously made abundantly clear.

    I realize twitter addicts will believe this, but no, children are not getting gender change surgeries. That's just a flat lie. Elon has a trans kid that he's estranged from and his acquisition and subsequent anti-trans hatred bent on twitter is very clearly a mid life crisis reaction to this event that apparently scarred his ego as a sperm donor.

    He honestly didn't want to build electric cars.
    He wanted to ruin the California High Speed Rail initiative and make money.

    I myself bought into his myth of the "good billionaire"
    When he's just a stupid Hank Scorpio.

    It would be funny watching him spiral further into the conspiracy theory rabbit hole if it wasn't so painfully boring and predictable and also if it didn't actually have real-world consequences thanks to how he chooses to operate his social media platform, for example.

    Seriously though, when the fuck is there going to be a security review for this clearly increasingly unhinged dude who owns companies contracting with the US government and Pentagon?

    Also out of all the conspiracy theories, pizzagate?

    Like I am sure some conspiracy nut went in there with a gun and demanded to see the basement of pizza comet only to find out there is no basement...

    Aaaand he is back! Posting pizzagate theories is the chef's kiss. Thank you Elmo.

    My goodness why can't people see who this person is. Why do people who overvalue Tesla at least by a eff ton, purely on the head person being a genius. Well, now it's maybe he is so rich that he will just stream roll his way to success. As people know he has a big say in how electric cars may go at least with charging stations. SpaceX and Starlink, one in the same I guess, has value but also Elmo wields this power over our government. All these like most rich idiots he has more say and control of the government, yet gubberment baad!
    Democrats are the best! I will never ever question a Democrat again. I LOVE the Democrats!

    What in his recent behavior has given you the indication that he wouldn't believe Pizzagate stupidity? Dude has gone full down the rabbit hole of right wing Twitter and is simping in the comments of every alt-right, misinformation pedaling weirdo because they're his most consistent positive feedback loop when his self-proscribed microdose of ketamine wears off and he starts feeling depressed again.

    Hey, I will not have you besmirch Hank Scorpio's name like that.
    His methods may be a little unorthodox but he is a model employer who cares for his workers.
