It would be so glorious if this whole situation takes him down* Archived Message

He was going to try to martyr himself through an attempted hostile takeover for teh lolz. But then Twitter accepted, he was locked in, and the tech market continued tanking. TSLA's down 45% from Jan 1 and if he's pledging TSLA he's gotten himself into a bit of a hole. But he can't be seen as backing down from the attempt, lest he lose his luster among the fanboys.
He also likely has violated SEC rules in the leadup to all of this, and, as you say, probably wants leniency after 2024.
he'll try and make it a partisan thing and hope the next admin throws it out in 2024.
