AOC Smacks Down Elon Musk For Claiming Democrats Want To ‘Import Voters’

Twitter CEO Elon Musk got schooled by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Thursday after he suggested that the influx of migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border is an attempt by Democrats to “import voters.”

Musk shared a link to an online article from the right-wing Daily Caller which claimed the Biden administration is considering granting amnesty and “handing out green cards” to the undocumented. No such plan exists.

Echoing the “great replacement theory,” a fearmongering tactic employed by conservatives for years to rile up their voters, Musk posted this on Twitter:

Ocasio-Cortez swatted down Musk’s lie by reminding him that he’s also an immigrant from South Africa.

“You’re literally an immigrant. And for everyone saying ‘yeah, but legal!!’ May I once again remind you that seeking asylum is legal, too. Have a good day!”

Musk’s fact-free posting also drew plenty of comments from others on his social media site, which continues to lose millions of dollars each month.

Here’s a thought: Let’s deport Elon back to South Africa or ship him to Russia where he’d feel more at home politically.

AOC Claps Back HARD After Elon Musk Says She ‘Isn’t That Smart’

Twitter CEO Elon Musk found out the hard way that if you’re going to attack New York Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, you’d better bring more than some pathetic snarky putdown or else be prepared to suffer the consequences.

It seems that Musk saw a video from AOC in which she noted the stark difference in the number of immigrants being allowed into the United States these days versus the much reduced number of immigrants currently being accepted as potential citizens.

Ashely St. Clair of the right-wing Babylon Bee lamely called Ocasio-Cortez out.

That led Musk to join the debate, completely uninvited.

Not that smart? That’s laughable coming from a man who purchased Twitter for $44 billion and has almost driven it into the ground, watching the social media platform lose two-thirds of its total value in just a year’s time.

The Guardian reports:

Fidelity, an asset manager that held a stake in Twitter worth about $20m after Musk acquired the business for $44bn, said in a corporate filing that its stake was now worth just under $6.6m. That would value the overall company, now officially called X Holdings Corp after Musk’s early venture, at just $14.75bn.

Ocasio-Cortez was only too happy to fire back at Musk.

When Musk attempted a retort, his response fell far short, much like his failing career in the business world.

Sorry, Elon, but no one is impressed by your massive failures. In fact, we kind of wish you’d buy a deserted island, move there, and never return.

Oh, and don’t take a cell phone or computer with you when you leave. No one wants to read your juvenile rantings.

Elon Musk’s Pathetic Attempt To Troll Stephen King Backfires Badly On Him

Twitter CEO Elon Musk, apparently hoping to garner some positive media buzz as he watches the social media platform continue to tank, thought it’d be a great idea to let the world know that he’s paying for some celebrities to have a verified account, even though everyone else has to pay $8 a month for a blue check next to their screen name.

According to Time, “The costs of keeping the marks range from $8 a month for individual web users to a starting price of $1,000 monthly to verify an organization, plus $50 monthly for each affiliate or employee account. Twitter does not verify the individual accounts, as was the case with the previous blue check doled out during the platform’s pre-Musk administration.”

Celebrity users, from basketball star LeBron James to author Stephen King and Star Trek’s William Shatner, have balked at joining — although on Thursday, all three had blue checks indicating that the account paid for verification.

King was even more emphatic.

“My Twitter account says I’ve subscribed to Twitter Blue. I haven’t. My Twitter account says I’ve given a phone number. I haven’t.”

That led Musk to respond: “You’re welcome namaste”

It seems that Musk intended his move as a form of trolling, but as many others on Twitter noted, it reeked of desperation and failed miserably.

Is it really any surprise that Twitter has lost half of its value since Musk took over?

GOP Sen. Mike Lee’s Twitter Account Suspended Despite His Sucking Up To Elon Musk

Even though it’s only March, we may already have a frontrunner in the race for biggest sap in the U.S. Senate circa 2023.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) found his personal Twitter account suspended today after he made threatening remarks aimed at Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida.

Specifically, Lee sent this tweet to the Japanese PM after the Japanese government refused to release U.S. Navy Lt. Ridge Alkonis from prison.:

“You’ve made your choice, I hope you’re ready for some conversations on the Senate floor that you’re not likely to enjoy. This issue isn’t going away, and neither am I.”

Alkonis is serving a three-year sentence in a Japanese prison for his role in an automobile accident that left two people dead, CNN reports:

Navy Lt. Ridge Alkonis was sentenced to three years in a Japanese prison in October for what Japanese courts deemed to be the negligent driving deaths of two Japanese citizens in May 2021. Alkonis appealed, but his sentence was upheld last month.

Alkonis has maintained that he suffered from acute mountain sickness as he was driving down from Mount Fuji with his family on May 29, 2021, and fell unconscious behind the wheel, leading to the deadly crash. An 85-year-old woman and her 54-year-old son-in-law died in the accident.

The Japanese high court did not believe Alkonis’ argument that he fell ill, and instead accused him of falling asleep at the wheel. Under those standards, Alkonis’ sentence could have been longer – under Japanese law, he could have faced up to seven years in prison, according to the Japanese government.

Lee’s tweet aimed at the Japanese Prime Minister resulted in him being suspended from Twitter, and he immediately began whining about it on his official Senate account.

Prior to Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter late last year, Lee sounded euphoric about the idea of the billionaire becoming CEO of the social media platform:

“I sometimes suffer from unfettered exuberance, especially where Elon Musk is involved… I think it’s going to be a complete game changer if, when he finally completes this transaction — and I sincerely hope that he does… I think you will see an actual fair, even playing field for people to communicate their ideas without people being shadow banned.”

Lee’s account was later reinstated, along with this note from Musk:

It remains unclear at this point who now qualifies for the title of Whiniest Bitch on Social Media, Mike Lee or Elon Musk.

Adam Kinzinger Puts Elon Musk On Full Blast For Spreading Lies – And He Brought The Receipts

Former Illinois Republican Adam Kinzinger is calling out Twitter CEO Elon Musk for repeatedly telling lies about the horrific attack on Paul Pelosi, the husband of former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, and he’s making sure to bring the receipts incase Musk wants to deny his remarks.

The Independent reports that Kinzinger went after Musk shortly after police bodycam video of the Pelosi attack was made public on Friday.

The graphic clip showed a suspect identified as David DePape, 42, wildly strike the 82-year-old husband of Nancy Pelosi over the head at his San Francisco home on 28 October last year.

In the aftermath of the assault, Mr Musk amplified a “deranged” conspiracy theory that the two men were romantically involved.

“There is a tiny possibility there might be more to this story than meets the eye,” Mr Musk tweeted, before quietly deleting the post days later.

Shortly after that bodycam footage was released, Kinzinger posted on Twitter:

“Hey @elonmusk care to react to the Pelosi video? You spread the big conspiracy.”

That led Musk to respond that he was merely attacking media outlets for “misleading the public.”

But Kinzinger was far from finished with Musk, and he laid out the receipts proving the Twitter boss was lying his ass off, along with members of the GOP who consider Musk to be a hero.

Twitter has gone to shit since Elon Musk took over. Now he’s trying to rewrite history to serve his own purposes. But thanks to people like Adam Kinzinger, he won’t be allowed to.
