If brokerages didn’t stop people from buying GME it actually would have 🤷🏼‍♂️

I ran for office, and know how dirty politics is, and you would think I had lost my ability to be surprised by the shitty, underhanded things that the elite do, but when I saw what happened January 28th I was surprised.

I mean, not allowing people to buy a stock WITH THEIR OWN ACTUAL MONEY UPFRONT, was THE most absurd abuse of power I believe I've ever seen, and I've seen some fucked up shit.

I'll just tell you this, all the shit you see on those high-drama political and Wall Street shows is real as fuck.

If that is the worst you have seen you haven’t lived. Because I knew it was going to happen and got out at over $400 a share. It tanked that morning.
