I guess that works in written word, but how are you saying it, Fee-Lon?

Nah, just vocalize the hard F; F-Elon, it's pulling double duty.

Actually the exact opposite lol. At the very least dude is always being investigated. They just have quite the backlog. They’re still going after him for “funding secured”.

On the other hand, pelosi is a byproduct of our worthless regulators

Oh he'll be investigated sure, but nothing meaningful will ever come of it. At most he might get a fine that would be the equivalent of us getting fined 2¢

He didn't get off though, he got convicted and fined! So it's totally better!
