Elon Musk, Twitter’s new owner, just destroyed Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) with a hilarious tweet, Fox News reports.
It started with this tweet from the congresswoman:
Tired of having to collectively stress about what explosion of hate crimes is happening bc 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.
Stop hitting on me, I’m really shy.
According to Fox News, Ocasio-Cortez then responded with another tweet in which she claimed: “I was talking about Zuckerberg but ok.”
The outlet, though, says that Ocasio-Cortez deleted the tweet less than one minute after publishing it.
One of the things that makes Musk’s tweet so hilarious is that it has parallels to a tweet that Ocasio-Cortez posted earlier this year in January.
“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 wrote, adding, “Ya creepy weirdos.”
This tweet was Ocasio-Cortez’s response to the criticism that she received for fleeing New York amid the coronavirus surge that was happening at the time. The criticism specifically stemmed from a photo in which she was seen vacationing with her sandal-wearing boyfriend in Florida, the Republican-led state that Ocasio-Cortez has heavily criticized for its coronavirus response.
It’s hilarious to see Musk give Ocasio-Cortez a taste of her own medicine. But, let’s be honest here, Ocasio-Cortez is fairly low-hanging fruit.
