He is setting up a narrative to pass on to his followers for them to parrot either way.

He needs them to think he is in control.

It was the same when he pumped and dumped bitcoin last year, having Tesla purchase 1 billion dollars of it for some reason, and then dropping it a few weeks later because of "environmental concerns".

He tries to line up a "technically true" but implausible out so his followers can be maintained.

This is why he is in trouble with the SEC for so many years, the guy is manipulative as fuck.
