Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) now wants to sell her Tesla, following a Twitter dustup with tech billionaire Elon Musk last month.
The socialist darling bought a Model 3 Tesla back in 2020, which now sell for about $46,990. But after Musk teased her online, she’s singing a different tune.
“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,” AOC told Bloomberg News this week. “I would love to switch.”
“He’s a billionaire. I could care less what he thinks,” Ocasio-Cortez said of Musk’s apparent support of the GOP.
“Ocasio-Cortez bought her Model 3 to travel between Washington and her Bronx-Queens district after Covid-19 hit in 2020,” the Bloomberg report noted. “Now, the New York representative wants to ditch it for an electric vehicle made by unionized workers.”
Last month, Musk teased the far-Left representative after she complained online about billionaires for the umpteenth time. “Stop hitting on me, I’m really shy,” Musk tweeted at AOC.
The message was in reference to Ocasio-Cortez claiming her detractors actually just want to date her.
“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 said of critics last year. “Ya creepy weirdos.”
“It’s starting to get old ignoring the very obvious, strange, and deranged sexual frustrations that underpin the Republican fixation on me, women, & LGBT+ people in general,” she added. “These people clearly need therapy, won’t do it, and use politics as their outlet instead. It’s really weird.”
Ocasio-Cortez’s rant about Republicans and their “sexual frustrations” came after she was spotted dining out in Miami Beach as COVID-19 cases spiked in her district.

“Glad to see AOC enjoying the Florida freedom and sunshine, but it’s sad that school children in NYC are forced to eat lunch outside in freezing temperatures this winter due to the draconian and useless COVID policies pushed by AOC and her fellow progressives,” Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) spokeswoman Christina Pushaw told The Daily Wire following the report.
“Welcome to Florida, AOC!” Team DeSantis piled on via Twitter. “We hope you’re enjoying a taste of freedom here in the Sunshine State thanks to [Ron DeSantis]’s leadership. P.S. We recommend the Rock Shrimp Roll and the Aoki Tai the next time you decide to dine in Miami. Cheers!”
