Elon Musk’s EPIC personal response to ‘love-sick’ AOC triggers Twitter hilarity

In the midst of a rant against billionaires, and likely Elon Musk in particular, progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) found her arguments were no match for humorous repartee, especially when the joke was on her.

It would seem that the recent acquisition of Twitter by Musk has been challenging for the leader of the Squad who spends her time dreaming up outlandish solutions to imaginary problems like the ones she foresees will come when the privatization of the social media company is complete.

At the end of a tirade against billionaires that don’t march lockstep to woke dictates, AOC made reference to support of Musk from Fox News host Tucker Carlson and PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel as she attempted to smear the entrepreneur’s reputation.


“Tired of having to collectively stress about what explosion of hate crimes is happening [because] 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 wrote.

A short time later, Musk caught wind of the post and replied with his unique style of nuanced humor.

“Stop hitting on me, I’m really shy,” he tweeted.

As the hashtag “#AOCLovesElon” began trending, reaching approximately 50,000 tweets at the time of this post, the New York lawmaker attempted to counter the joke at her expense.

In a since-deleted tweet, Ocasio-Cortez wrote, “@elonmusk I was talking about Zuckerberg but ok.”

The odds of that are extremely unlikely considering the post Musk had made the day before where he shared a graph of the shifting political spectrum since 2008, similar to the Overton Window. The progressives’ insistence on pushing further and further left resulted in the once somewhat left of center billionaire now finding himself a good deal right of center.

Not long after he had opined on the state of politics over the last decade-plus, Ocasio-Cortez began a rant on billionaires critiquing progressives.

“Billionaires be like ‘the extreme far left is taking over’ when the ‘extreme far left’ in the US is ‘medicine shouldn’t bankrupt you,’ ‘wages should cover rent,’ & ‘maybe it’s bad that Wall St companies profit off mass surveillance, manufactured housing crises, and caging people,'” the legislator claimed in part before noting how few billionaires there are in an effort to shore up her argument.

Musk leveled that diatribe with a joke that not only embodied his objective of making Twitter fun, but also expertly used the representative’s own previous claims against her. As you may recall, it was only December when she tried to argue that the only reason Republicans critiqued her is because they “are mad they can’t date me.”

“It’s starting to get old ignoring the very obvious, strange, and deranged sexual frustration that underpin the Republican fixation on me, women,& LGBT+ people in general,” she continued.

While she was stuck taking herself too seriously, the rest of Twitter seemed to be enjoying some gentle ribbing at her expense.
