Elon Musk seemed stress-free as he touched down in Los Angeles with son X a day after Ron DeSantis’ disastrous presidential campaign launch on Twitter.
The 51-year-old Tesla CEO cut a casual figure as he stepped off a private jet at LAX before hopping into a maroon Tesla.
A babysitter was seen carrying her son X Æ A-12 up the stairs and some men followed her.
The former Twitter CEO didn’t seem upset despite technical issues last night when the Florida governor used Twitter to announce his 2024 presidential campaign.
DeSantis tried to claim he “broke the internet” during his chaotic Twitter presidential campaign launch, but did so all the while smiling as he later tried to downplay the issues that caused a 30-minute delay in the announcement.
Musk opted for a black T-shirt and black skinny jeans, paired with a personalized blue bomber jacket that displayed his last name across the chest as he stepped off the plane.
The jacket is from his company SpaceX, which hopes to make another launch this weekend.
It was not known if Musk was in Los Angeles on business or pleasure, but he gave a thumbs up as he got into the car after arriving in Los Angeles.
X Æ A-12 is three years old and one of two children Musk has with Canadian singer Grimes.
The ‘X’ in the boy’s name stands for ‘unknown variable’ and Æ is short for artificial intelligence.
Musk has 10 children and was praised by Nick Cannon last year for helping end the “depopulation crisis” after welcoming his new set of twins.
The nanny’s name has not been released and it is unclear how long she has been caring for Musk’s children.
In addition to SpaceX, Musk is also the head of auto company Tesla and bought social media giant Twitter for $44 billion late last year.
It was on Twitter that Musk joined Ron DeSantis as the Florida governor announced he was running for the 2024 Republican nomination for president.
The long-awaited start to his White House career in 2024 began 26 minutes late and crashed multiple times as hundreds of thousands of users tuned in to listen to DeSantis’ conversation with the Twitter CEO.
Musk, at one point, said during the event that the “servers were overloaded” and the host blamed the failures on the number of people tuning in, which he said was “a good thing.”
‘Just try and get it going,’ listeners could hear as it became apparent that frustration was growing.
Moderator David Sacks, a tech entrepreneur close to Musk, began the talk by stating that DeSantis was engaged in a “social media first” by “making history” with the announcement.
However, the event is more likely to be remembered for its series of failures.
While Musk blamed the servers, another theory was that Musk’s 140 million Twitter followers caused problems with him hosting the Twitter Spaces event. Others blamed the face that Musk has cut thousands of employees since he took ownership of the company in October.
DeSantis’ announcement was one of several high-profile moments for Twitter since Musk took ownership.
Earlier this month, Musk confirmed that NBCUniversal executive Linda Yaccarino had been named Twitter’s CEO, hinting that the platform will be rebranded as “X, the Everything App.”
Musk made the announcement on the morning of May 12 with a tweet that read, “I look forward to working with Linda to transform this platform into X, the app of everything.”
He said that Yaccarino “will mainly focus on business operations, while I will focus on product design and new technologies.”
Yaccarino had resigned as NBC’s head of advertising earlier that day, following growing speculation that she would be chosen for the Twitter job. Musk said in December that he would step down as chief executive once he found someone “dumb enough” to replace him.
Prior to assuming the role of CEO of Twitter, Yaccarino served for 11 years as president of global advertising at NBC Universal.
And his commitment to free speech over satisfying the wishes of advertisers was called into question when a video of his interview with Musk surfaced a month before his appointment.
The media executive encouraged Musk to facilitate the return of an “influence council,” which would allow advertisers to have more influence over content on Twitter.
