Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not very good at Twitter spats. The New York socialist Democrat recently got into one with Elon Musk. She had her lunch handed to her by Musk and now would like to give her Tesla keys to someone else.
She owns a Model 3 that she bought back in 2020, and even though it still does the job of getting her from New York to Washington economically, the fact that Musk is a self-proclaimed Republican might be too much for AOC to handle.
Here’s what she told Bloomberg News this week.
“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. I would love to switch.”
The feud with Musk started when she tweeted a message about billionaires being rotten, and Musk responded with, “Stop hitting on me; I’m really shy.”
AOC is listing another reason she might put her Tesla up for sale. She told Bloomberg she wants an electric car made by union workers.
When pressed about her reason for wanting to sell her Tesla and if it was a response to Musk ditching his Democratic status and going blue, she said he’s too rich to worry about.
“He’s a billionaire. I could care less what he thinks.”
