Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky has hit back at Elon Musk after the Tesla boss posted a Twitter poll with his suggestions for ending Russia's invasion.

Mr Musk asked his 107.7m followers to vote on ideas that included ceding territory to Russia.

In response Mr Zelensky posted his own poll asking users if they liked the world's richest person more when he supported Ukraine.

Other Ukrainians criticised Mr Musk.

We can start by cutting subsidies to his ventures that end up losing value after he gets all kinds of praise for them.

4. What arrogance on the part of Elon Musk!!!

Why don't you just give part of your country away along with the citizens who live and work on their own land and you'll have peace. Did it never occur to him it wasn't up to him to decide this? I'm the richest man in the world and so I get to decide you should give up part of your country. Besides, I want to do business with Russia again and I can't do that as easily while you're beating the crap out of the soldiers who are attacking your country.

8. Between his union busting, ego, and his big bullcrap, techno-dick bullcrap infrastructure CGI

projects that make things works (like the Vegas loop, and his Space X life on Mars idiocy), Elon Musk is the personification of idiotic, narcissistic CEOs (corporate ego in overdrive).

Here are videos to show how much of a tool Musk is.

I think that overcrowded countries should go even further and take over that whole damned country and resettle the masses who have no place to be. I mean, just look at all that wide expanse of land where only 144.1 million people live, most of them in Moscow and along the western border. Redistribution of land is a great idea especially if those who lose ownership are trying to fuck up the planet for the rest of us... they have shown that they are incapable of having that much power and using it for anything other than continued inhumanity.

Fuck 'em, they like being ruled by someone, let them be ruled by someone with humanity and peace in mind.

The Logan Act (1 Stat. 613, 18 U.S.C. ß 953, enacted January 30, 1799) is a United States federal law that criminalizes negotiation by unauthorized American citizens with foreign governments having a dispute with the United States.
