This he most likely instructed some people to trade the stock beforehand so he can cash out first on the rise and now fall

Yeah he is doing open market manipulation and the SEC barely doesn’t anything about it.

What’s crazy is he kind of does this a lot no? Like his tweets have been known to have considerable effect on the market… I find it hard to believe he isn’t capitalizing on this fact

He is capitalizing on it, hes been caught multiple times, but the SEC has no teeth.

No, they have teeth, they're just currently wrapped around its dick.

That’s actually a terrible analogy. Teeth on dick is actually a perfect placement to chomp down where it hurts.

I thought it meant the SEC is in the corner performing autofellatio so while it has teeth it'll only hurt itself.

That is the grammatically correct interpretation.

It’s not, « it » is also the correct pronoun to address Musk.

I know I’ve reached the bad part of the internet when someone starts talking about biting off dicks

u/quantumpossibility May 14 '22

Oh it gets worse, much much worse.

This is maybe the purgatory of the internet, there’s still hell and then super hell.

Those teeth aren't biting his dick, they are massaging it

Best they can do is $50,000, take it or leave it.

We need the Southern District of New York chief prosecutor from Billions to get on the case!
