Elon Musk looked stress-free as he touched down in Los Angeles with his son X a day after the disastrous Ron DeSantis presidential campaign launch on Twitter.
The Tesla CEO, 51, cut a casual figure as he stepped off a private jet at LAX. He was seen jumping into a maroon Tesla as a nanny carried his son X Æ A-12 down the steps and a few men followed.
It appeared Musk’s other nine children were not traveling with him. Last year, Nick Cannon saluted Musk for helping end ‘underpopulation crisis’ after he welcomed his newest set of twins.
The former Twitter CEO seemed unbothered exiting the play despite last night’s glitches when the Florida governor used Twitter to announce his 2024 presidential campaign.
DeSantis tried claiming that he ‘broke the internet’ during his chaotic Twitter presidential campaign launch – but did so without breaking a smile – as he later tried to downplay the issues that caused a 30-minute delay in the announcement.

There was no word on if Musk was in Los Angeles for business or pleasure. Musk shot a thumbs up as he made a face and 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 child’s name stands for the ‘unknown variable’ and Æ is shorthand for artificial intelligence.
The nanny’s name has not been released and its unclear how long she has been watching over Musk’s children.
Musk opted for a black t-shirt and black skinny jeans, paired with a personalized blue bomber jacket that featured his last name on the chest as he exited the plane. The jacket is from his SpaceX company, which hopes to hold another launch this weekend.

In addition to SpaceX, Musk is also the head of the Tesla auto company and purchased social-media giant Twitter for $44billion late last year.
It was on Twitter, where Musk joined with Ron DeSantis as the Florida Governor announced he was running for the Republican nomination for president in 2024.
The highly-anticipated start of his 2024 White House run started 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 strained’ and the host blamed the glitches on the number of people tuning in, which he claimed were a ‘good thing.’
‘Just try and get it going,’ listeners could hear as it became clear frustration was growing.
Moderator David Sacks, a tech entrepreneur close to Musk, started the talk by claiming DeSantis was engaged in a ‘first is social media’ by ‘making history’ with the announcement.
The event, however, is more likely to be remembered for its series of glitches.
While Musk blamed the servers, another theory was that Musk’s 140 million Twitter followers caused issues with him hosting the Twitter Spaces event. Others blamed the face Musk has slashed thousands from the staff since taking ownership of the company in October.

In a short video posted after the haywire announcement on Twitter, DeSantis joked – with a straight face – that he ‘broke the internet’. He was also seen grimacing at the end of the clip
DeSantis’ announcement was one of several high-profile moments for Twitter since Musk took ownership.
Earlier this month, Musk confirmed NBCUniversal executive Linda Yaccarino has been appointed as the CEO of Twitter – and hinted the platform will be rebranded as ‘X, the everything app.’
Musk made the announcement on May 12 morning with a tweet which said: ‘Looking forward to working with Linda to transform this platform into X, the everything app.’
He said Yaccarino ‘will focus primarily on business operations, while I focus on product design & new technology.’
Yaccarino had resigned as NBC’s head of advertising earlier in the day – following growing speculation she’d be chosen for the Twitter role. Musk said in December that he’d step down as CEO once he’d found someone ‘foolish enough’ to replace him.
Her appointment comes after she interviewed Musk at a marketing event in April and boasted about her ‘work ethic’ – a meeting which some have speculated may have played an important role in her appointment.
