Elon Musk slammed NBC News on Monday in response to a rant from a far-Left MSNBC host who claimed that Musk bought Twitter and turned it over to “the far-right.”

MSNBC’s Mehdi Hasan, who has compared non-Muslims to “cattle,” tried to downplay America’s far-Left by claiming that they only want to “give us free health care and free childcare” while claiming that the far-right “wants to give us white supremacy and no democracy.”

“And this asymmetrical polarization of U.S. politics would be laughable if it weren’t so horrifying,” Hasan said. “We are living through an unspeakably dangerous moment, the pro-QAnon, pro-neo Nazi faction of the Republican Party is poised to expand dramatically come the midterms. We’re just two years away from Donald Trump very possibly reseizing executive power. If that happens, we may look back on this past week as a pivotal moment when a petulant and not so bright billionaire casually bought one of the world’s most influential messaging machines, and just handed it to the far right.”

“NBC basically saying Republicans are Nazis,” Musk responded. “Same org that covered up Hunter Biden laptop story, had Harvey Weinstein story early & killed it & built Matt Lauer his rape office. Lovely people.”

Hasan’s remarks about Musk come after  Twitter’s board of directors unanimously approved an acquisition by Musk last week in a $44 billion sale valued at $54.20 per share.

Musk made news over the weekend when he mocked the face of the far-Left, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), in response to her attacks on billionaires.

Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, “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.”

Musk responded, “Stop hitting on me, I’m really shy.”

Musk’s response is a reference to a news story from late last year where Ocasio-Cortez lashed out at critics online after she was caught hanging out in Florida without a mask on.

National Review reported that, according to photographs obtained by the publication, Ocasio-Cortez was “seated outside Doraku Sushi and Izakaya in Miami Beach Thursday afternoon, raising a cocktail in one hand and checking her phone in another.”

“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 responded to one of the critics calling her out. “Ya creepy weirdos.”
