According to sources, Elon Musk may be thinking about running for office, which would be his first foray into American politics after a highly public rollercoaster ride.
Musk, who was ‘red-pilled’ after soaring to the top of the most wealthy elite circles of Washington DC, fell out of favor with his radical leftist brethren when he slipped his position and started his odyssey in defending free speech.
The left freaked out and literally dumped Elon hard. Now the left is getting their comeuppance as the storm clouds circulate about Elon’s future plans to run for office as some sort of Conservative.
We can almost hear the collective gasping from Musk’s electric car driving greenies.
According to his bio: Elon Reeve Musk FRS is a business magnate and investor. He is the founder, CEO, and Chief Engineer at SpaceX; angel investor, CEO, and Product Architect of Tesla, Inc.; founder of The Boring Company; and co-founder of Neuralink and OpenAI.
Musk has recently been dominating news headlines with his on-again-off-again purchase and ownership of Twitter. Everything Musk does makes news, and then it goes viral.
Axios reported on some of Musk’s recent chatter:
“Elon Musk said Wednesday that he is leaning toward backing Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) if he decides to run for president in 2024, one month after the Tesla founder said that he can “no longer support Democrats.”
Driving the news: Musk on Wednesday was asked on Twitter who he was “leaning towards” in the 2024 presidential election. “DeSantis,” he responded.”

The Daily Mail reported on the idea of Musk running for office, himself:
“The Tesla and SpaceX CEO also revealed he was leaning toward voting for Florida’s Republican Governor Ron DeSantis, who is widely believed to be weighing a bid for the White House in 2024, in the next presidential election.”
DeSantis has for the last two years deftly combatted the disastrous COVID-19 pandemic to build Florida as a beacon of freedom – even as public health experts using the total weight of the federal government, have tied to slam his actions as reckless and dangerous- DeSantis has emerged a wildly popular national figure.
“Musk also said he had voted Republican for the first time in the primary elections, casting his vote in favor of Mayra Flores, who last night made history by becoming the first Mexican-born Congresswoman to serve in the House after beating a Democrat in Texas,” the Daily Mail reported.
“Whilst Musk describes himself as a moderate, in recent years – and particularly while publicly discussing his on-hold $44 billion takeover of Twitter – he has demonstrated he leaning more towards the political right,” they wrote.
On Wednesday, Musk tweeted: ‘I’m thinking of creating a “Super Moderate Super PAC” that supports candidates with centrist views from all parties.’
Meanwhile, Musk said he voted for Flores in the primary elections. ‘First time I ever voted Republican,’ he tweeted. ‘Massive red wave in 2022.’
Flores will now represent a once solidly Democratic district in South Texas after she beat Democrat Dan Sanchez in a special primary election to finish the term of former Democratic Rep. Filemon Vela, who resigned this year to become a lobbyist.
When a follower asked Musk if he would be voting for a Republican in the next presidential election, Musk said he was still undecided.
But when Musk was asked who he was leaning toward, he responded: ‘DeSantis’.
Musk was also asked what he thought of Andrew Yang, who ran in the 2020 Democratic Party presidential primaries. He said: ‘I supported Yang last time, but DeSantis has a better chance of winning.’
A follower also asked him: ‘Is this the first time that has happened… where you’re receiving massive amounts of hate by the top Democrat leaders?’ The Tesla CEO responded ‘yes.’
So while Musk was once a leftist- he now presents himself as a moderate, yet he slams the Democrat Party.
How Twitter sees where Musk lines up:
Bill Gates is a BETA MALE.
Elon Musk is an ALPHA MALE.
Donald Trump is an ULTRA MAGA ALPHA MALE KING.

The Epoch Times reported on Musk’s next moves:
The virtual meeting, which is set to take place on June 16, was first reported by Business Insider after being announced by Twitter CEO
Parag Agrawal, in an email, to staff on June 13. It was subsequently confirmed to the BBC by a Twitter spokesperson.
The Epoch Times has also contacted a Twitter spokesperson for comment.
In his email to Twitter employees, Agrawal said they could submit questions to businessman Musk ahead of the meeting, which he could then answer.
The planned meeting will mark the first time that Musk, the world’s richest person, has addressed Twitter workers since he launched his $44 billion takeover bid of the company.
Perhaps after Musk gets Twitter settled, we will better understand his political plans for the United States of America.
