Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York revealed that she would like to sell her Telsa following a Twitter feud with Telsa CEO and free speech advocate Elon Musk, according to The Daily Wire.
“I would love to switch,” the socialist explained. “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.”
Last month, Ocasio-Cortez complained about billionaires. Without directly using Musk’s name, she suggested Musk has “an ego problem” since he now “control a massive communication platform.” She also claimed Musk would “skew” the platform because “Tucker Carlson or Peter Thiel took him to dinner and made him feel special.”
In response, Musk said, “Stop hitting on me, I’m really shy.” This references how Ocasio-Cortez once claimed her critics actually just 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 about critics. “Ya creepy weirdos.”
Stop hitting on me, I’m really shy ☺️

“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. “These people clearly need therapy, won’t do it, and use politics as their outlet instead. It’s really weird.”

When asked more recently about Musk, Ocasio-Cortez responded, “He’s a billionaire. I could care less what he thinks.”
“Ocasio-Cortez bought her Model 3 to travel between Washington and her Bronx-Queens district after Covid-19 hit in 2020,” the Bloomberg report reported. “Now, the New York representative wants to ditch it for an electric vehicle made by unionized workers.”
“Glad to see AOC enjoying the Florida freedom and sunshine, but it’s sad that school children in NYC are forced to eat lunch outside in freezing temperatures this winter due to the draconian and useless COVID policies pushed by AOC and her fellow progressives,” Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) spokeswoman Christina Pushaw said.
“Welcome to Florida, AOC!” Team DeSantis said.
“We hope you’re enjoying a taste of freedom here in the Sunshine State thanks to [Ron DeSantis]’s leadership. P.S. We recommend the Rock Shrimp Roll and the Aoki Tai the next time you decide to dine in Miami. Cheers!”
