ELON MUSK TROLLS BERNIE SANDERS ON TWITTER FOR CALLING OUT THE ‘EXTREMELY WEALTHY’: ‘I KEEP FORGETTING YOU’RE STILL ALIVE’
Monday, Nov 15, 2021
Elon Musk is trolling again on Twitter and this time he wants Bernie Sanders to “Feel the Bern.”
Bernie, 80, must have ruffled some of Elon Musk’s billionaire-worthy feathers when he tweeted “we must demand that the extremely wealthy pay their fair share. period” over the weekend. In response to Bernie calling out the rich, Elon Musk, 50, tweeted “I keep forgetting you’re still alive.”
We must demand that the extremely wealthy pay their fair share. Period.
This isn’t the first time Bernie and Elon have thrown Twitter blows as back in March Bernie called Elon and Jeff Bezos’ “level of greed” immoral and suggested they “focus on Earth and create a progressive tax system” instead of exploring space travel.
We are in a moment in American history where two guys — Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos — own more wealth than the bottom 40% of people in this country. That level of greed and inequality is not only immoral. It is unsustainable.
Space travel is an exciting idea, but right now we need to focus on Earth and create a progressive tax system so that children don’t go hungry, people are not homeless and all Americans have healthcare. The level of inequality in America is obscene and a threat to our democracy. https://t.co/CbMWYnPFUx
