ELON MUSK Just Issued A Major Challenge To AOC…

Tesla CEO and the richest man on earth Elon Musk issued an open challenge to US Congresswoman Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez on Wednesday (AOC).

In a series of tweets, the multi-billionaire demanded that the former US Representative for New York’s 14 congressional districts conduct a poll on Twitter asking whether people trust a ‘politician’ or a ‘billionaire.’

“Who do you trust less? Real question,” he tweeted, presenting a Twitter poll that offered “politicians” and “billionaires” as the only two options.

He then directly tweeted at Ocasio-Cortez: “@aoc I dare you to run the same poll with your followers.” At press time, Ocasio-Cortez had not responded.

For the uninitiated, AOC and Musk began teasing each other in late April, when the latter asked AOC to “stop hitting on him.”

The riff-raff began with a now-deleted tweet by AOC, which said: ” Tired of having to collectively stress about what explosion of hate crimes is happening because some billionaire with ego problem unilaterally controls a massive communication platform and skews it because Ticket Carlson or Peter Thiel took him to dinner and made him special” in a clear dig at Elon Musk’s Twitter buyout squabble Musk responded with a witty remark, “Stop hitting on me, I am really shy” with a blushing emoji.

AOC then hit back saying: “I was talking about (Mark) Zuckerberg but ok. That’s some way to get two billionaires in one tweet.”

Returning to the Congresswoman’s tweet, Musk responded on Wednesday, saying, “Use of the term “billionaire” as a derogatory is morally wrong and dumb…if the reason for it is building products that make millions of people happy.”

Before the spat escalated, AOC deleted the “epic” tweet, explaining that she was “trying to avoid giving people with massive ego complexes like this the attention and QTs/replies they crave and are seeking,” and adding a winking-face emoji.

Friday’s tweet is the latest in a series of clashes between Musk and Ocasio-Cortez.

On Tuesday, the New York representative told Bloomberg that she would trade in her Tesla for another electric vehicle made by unionized workers.

Cortez is one of ten members of the United States Congress who owns a Tesla car, which she purchased last year to help her travel from New York to Washington during election campaigns “on like one, or one-and-a-half charges.”

AOC stressed that she “couldn’t care less” about Musk and his apparent war against “wokeism,” When asked if her decision was resultant of the feud with Musk.
