Elon Musk Tells Conor McGregor He Should Run for Office

Must read

Elon Musk is urging Conor McGregor to trade in the Octagon for the most powerful political seat in Ireland.

After McGregor flirted with the idea of running for the Presidency of his home country, Musk responded to the MMA star on X (formerly Twitter), writing, “I think you could take them all single-handed. Not even fair.”

McGregor then responded to Musk, writing, “I’d fancy my chances Elon, 100 percent.”

In a lengthy rant Tuesday, the UFC star further laid out what a potential McGregor administration would focus on.

“Among many other things, the allocation of our nation’s funds has been nothing short of criminal, and without an iota of consideration for the public’s thinking,” McGregor wrote. “This is why I’d run, if I was to. To be a voice of the people that deserve to be heard.”

He continued, “President of Ireland is a unique position to other countries but it would demand response to questioning. Dialect would be so good for us in the public.”

Musk responded again to McGregor’s appeal, further pledging his support in writing, “Well, I hope you are at least nominated. That would shake things up!”

McGregor initially raised the idea of a Presidential run on Monday, when he wrote, “I listen. I support. I adapt. I have no affiliation/bias/favoritism toward any party.”

“They would genuinely be held to account regarding the current sway of public feeling,” the Dublin native continued. “I’d even put it all to vote. There’d be votes every week to make sure. I can fund. It would not be me in power as President, people of Ireland. It would be me and you.”

While McGregor claims he does not identify with any political party, his views have certainly raised eyebrows recently, particularly when it comes to immigration and the recent riots in Dublin.

After four people were stabbed — including three children — at a school near Dublin by an Algerian immigrant who was a naturalized Irish citizen, McGregor posted the victims had been “ruthlessly stabbed by a mentally deranged non-national.”
