AOC Wants To Sell Her Tesla After Elon Musk Teased Her Online

New York Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez picked a fight with Tesla CEO Elon Musk and it’s not going well.

Ocasio-Cortez whined in a recent interview that she wants to sell her Tesla days after she was trolled on Twitter by Musk.

AOC revealed she bought a Model 3 Tesla back in 2020 but now wants to get rid of it after Musk teased her online.

“At the time, it was the only EV that could get me from New York to Washington on like one or one-and-a-half charges,” AOC told Bloomberg. “I would love to switch.”

“He’s a billionaire. I could care less what he thinks,” Ocasio-Cortez said of Musk’s apparent support of the GOP.

“Ocasio-Cortez bought her Model 3 to travel between Washington and her Bronx-Queens district after Covid-19 hit in 2020,” the Bloomberg report noted. “Now, the New York representative wants to ditch it for an electric vehicle made by unionized workers.”

Musk teased AOC after she went on another rant about billionaires and how she wants them slapped with even more taxes.

“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,” she said.


“Stop hitting on me, I’m really shy,” Musk tweeted at AOC.

His tweet was poking fun at AOC claiming last year that Republicans only criticize her because they secretly like and want to date her.

“If Republicans are mad they can’t date me they can just say that instead of projecting their sexual frustrations onto my boyfriend’s feet,” Ocasio-Cortez said last year. “Ya creepy weirdos.”

“It’s starting to get old ignoring the very obvious, strange, and deranged sexual frustrations that underpin the Republican fixation on me, women, & LGBT+ people in general,” she added at the time. “These people clearly need therapy, won’t do it, and use politics as their outlet instead. It’s really weird.”

Musk poked fun at AOC last week with a not-so-subtle dig when he put up a Twitter poll asking people to vote whether they trusted politicians or billionaires more.

“Use of the word “billionaire” as a pejorative is morally wrong & dumb,” he said in one of his first tweets on Thursday.

“If the reason for it is building products that make millions of people happy,” he said.

But then came a poll for his Twitter followers in which he asked “Who do you trust less? Real question” followed by a two choice poll pitting Politicians against billionaires.


And he then issued a challenge to Rep. Ocasio-Cortez, “.I dare you to run the same poll with your followers,” he said.

Earlier this month, Musk said his deal to purchase Twitter at a lower price is “not out of the question.”

While speaking at the 2022 All-In Summit, Musk said he’s continued to express skepticism about the company’s estimate of spam and fake accounts.

It was originally reported that around 5% of Twitter is comprised of fake accounts and bots. Now, reports have come out arguing that it could be closer to 20%, which Musk admitted concerns him.

Musk said at the All-In Summit that without providing evidence, it “seems beyond unreasonable” that Twitter’s number of human accounts is near 95%.


Musk also issued a warning to liberal politicians running California who fostered an unfriendly business environment and allowed chaos on the streets in the Golden State.

Musk took to Twitter over the weekend and wrote: “The Golden State is cooking its golden geese. Sooo tasty at first, but then no more golden eggs.”

He also shared a story from Matt Taibbi, who detailed data and reports about how Democratic rule and policies have driven California into the ground.

Musk clearly believes this given he moved Tesla out of California and to Texas.
