The latest round occurred this week when AOC suggested she wanted to give up her Tesla, which was built by one of Musk’s companies.
The infamous democratic socialist and Green New Deal advocate said she was ready to dump her Tesla Model 3 after Musk said he would vote for Republicans.
Last week, Musk tweeted, “In the past I voted Democrat, because they were (mostly) the kindness party. But they have become the party of division & hate, so I can no longer support them and will vote Republican. Now, watch their dirty tricks campaign against me unfold.”
And almost on cue, reports surfaced that Musk had allegedly sexually harassed an airline attendant and paid her $250,000 in a settlement.
But the feud began a month ago, after Musk seemed close to finalizing his purchase of Twitter.
On the social media platform, she tweeted, “Tired of having to collectively stress about what explosion of hate crimes is happening bc some billionaire with an ego problem unilaterally controls a massive communication platform and skews it because Tucker Carlson or Peter Thiel took him to dinner and made him feel special.”
Musk replied, “Stop hitting on me, I’m really shy.” That recalled a comment AOC made on New Year’s Eve when she claimed her conservative critics were really just sexually frustrated Republicans who wanted to date her.
This week, AOC said she would prefer to get rid of her Tesla and go for an electric vehicle made by union workers. That, according to media reports, essentially leaves her two choices, a Chevrolet Bolt and a Ford F-150 Lightning.
But in the Bloomberg News interview in which she announced that she would ‘love to switch,” AOC added of her desire for a non-Tesla, “He’s a billionaire. I could care less what he thinks.” An obvious untruth.
Musk responded with a thought experiment. He posted a poll on Twitter, asking followers whom they trust less, billionaires or politicians.
He also challenged AOC, a notorious billionaire basher, to do likewise.
It was a blowout.
Nearly 3.4 million people responded, and 76 percent said they trusted politicians less.
AOC refused to take up Musk’s challenge.
But one of her left-wing fans, who claims 340,000 followers on Twitter, did. He also posted a poll on Thursday also asking who people trust less, pols or billionaires.
Another blowout. Almost 78 percent answered politicians.
