Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez threw a massive public temper tantrum.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk was the target of her rage.
But now Elon Musk destroyed Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez with one brutal joke.
In an interview with Bloomberg, Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez fumed about Elon Musk declaring he plans to vote for Republicans for the first time in his life this year.
“I have voted overwhelmingly for Democrats, historically – overwhelmingly. Like, I’m not sure, I might never have voted for a Republican, just to be clear. Now this election, I will,” Musk told an audience at a tech conference in Miami.
Musk explained that trial lawyers and Big Labor owned and operated Democrats are keeping the Party from acting on behalf of the common good.
This did not sit well with Ocasio-Cortez, who sneered that because Musk was a billionaire, his opinion doesn’t matter.
“He’s a billionaire. I couldn’t care less what he thinks,” Ocasio-Cortez ranted.
Bloomberg pointed out that Ocasio-Cortez owned one of Musk’s Tesla Model-3 vehicles, to which she retorted that she would ditch the car for a different electrical vehicle brand as soon as possible.
“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,” Ocasio-Cortez declared. “I would love to switch.”
Musk responded on social media, mocking Ocasio-Cortez by asking his 95 million followers if insulting someone because they were successful was “morally wrong and dumb.”

Ocasio-Cortez, announcing her intention to dump Tesla and attacking Musk for his success, also spoke to the impulses on the Left to cancel anyone they disagree with.
The Left’s embrace of woke cancel culture is what spurred Musk to purchase Twitter in the first place.
Musk agrees with Ocasio-Cortez on gun control, fighting so-called “climate change,” and abortion.
But Because Musk differed on the issue of free speech and planned to vote for Republicans in the Midterm elections, Ocasio-Cortez declared him persona non grata in polite left-wing society.
If you wanted to pick one example of how the Left alienated old allies and pushed the political center closer to the Right, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s constant barbs at Elon Musk and his responses are the data points you would point to.
