Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez attack billionaires and in response Elon Musk issued a dare to the progressive Democrat star, The Daily Wire reports.
Musk dared Cortez (D-NY) to poll her Twitter followers to see who they trusted less, billionaires or politicians.
Musk then polled his followers, all 100 million of them, and 3 million responded.
The results? 75% said they trusted politicians less than billionaires.
.@aoc I dare you to run the same poll with your followers

Musk’s challenge comes after Cortez responded to his attempt to purchase Twitter.
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.”
AOC’s rant against billionaires continued on Twitter with her writing: “Billionaires be like ‘the extreme far left is taking over’ when the ‘extreme far left’ in the US is ‘medicine shouldn’t bankrupt you,’ ‘wages should cover rent,’ & ‘maybe it’s bad that Wall St companies profit off mass surveillance, manufactured housing crises, and caging people.’”
“The number of billionaires in the US couldn’t even fill an apartment building, but the number of people they negatively impact is only growing,” she added. “All the US billionaire votes combined couldn’t even come in 2nd for an NY city council election. That’s why they stay pressed.”
Musk mocked Ocasio-Cortez in response, writing, “Stop hitting on me, I’m really shy.”
Cortez has yet to run the poll on her Twitter as of the writing of this article.
Sorry guys, AOC is off the market! She’s actually engaged to a man..can I say that. I wonder who’s going to have the baby?? She thinks she’s hurting Elon Musk by selling her Tesler. I fear not. Perhaps now she can pay her own student loans like responsible people do…
