AOC has announced plans to ditch her Tesla, weeks after Elon Musk told her to stop flirting with him on Twitter.  

The Green New Deal-backing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, 32, told Bloomberg in an interview Wednesday that she wants to switch to an electronic car that is made domestically by unionized workers. 

Currently, the only such vehicles she could consider are Ford’s huge F-150 Lightning truck, which will be released later this year, or a Chevy Bolt. 

The Democrat told the network that she purchased her Model 3 in 2020 around the time that the Covid-19 began. 

AOC said that it was the only electric car that could get her from her Bronx-Queens district to the nation’s capital on ‘one, or one-and-half charges.’

Now the proud member of the squad says: ‘I would love to switch.’ 

AOC claimed it was because she wants to support a manufacturer with a unionized production line, but her timing has raised questions.

Just a few weeks ago, Musk jokingly told her to stop flirting with him after she took to Twitter to scold about the billionaire’s planned purchase of the social media network.  

AOC’s Tesla Model 3 was spotted parked illegally outside a Whole Foods in Washington D.C. in May 2021.

The $35,000 Tesla with New York plates and a Congressional parking pass was pictured in a no-parking zone near AOC’s luxury DC apartment on May 14, 2021, the Washington Free Beacon reported.

Sources told the Free Beacon that AOC had been seen driving a white Tesla in the neighborhood.

When asked about Tesla CEO Musk’s recent declaration that he will vote Republican from now on having previously voted Democrat, AOC said: ‘He’s a billionaire. I could care less what he thinks.’ 

Musk’s multi-billion dollar acquisition of Twitter is on hold while the South African-native investigate the company’s user reports.  

In April, when AOC tweeted about ‘some billionaire with an ego problem,’ Musk responded to her message jokingly saying: ‘Stop hitting on me, I’m really shy.’ 

AOC got engaged to her long-term partner web developer Riley Roberts in Puerto Rico in April 2022.  

The banter continued with AOC later screenshotting her tweet about Musk having an ego problem, writing in that message: like I said, ego problems.’

When asked why she deleted the original tweet, AOC said: ‘I try to avoid giving people with massive ego complexes like this the attention and QTs/replies they crave and are seeking (when I can help it ).’

While over on her Instagram story, AOC posted a screenshot of the ‘ego problem’ tweet with the caption: ‘If he’s looking for something to do he can pay taxes.’ 

Musk said in December 2021 that he would pay over $11 billion in taxes.  

According to Bloomberg, other Democrats who own Tesla cars include Adam Schiff of California, David Cicilline of Rhode Island, Lisa Blunt of Rochester and Tom Malinowski of New Jersey. 

Another owner is Senate Environment and Public Works Committee Chair Tom Carper. 

On the other side of the aisle, Republican Congressman Thomas Massie of Kentucky owns a Tesla which he has modified with a ‘Friends of Coal’ license plate. 

He told Bloomberg: ‘This is not a car company, it’s a battery company. The car is just their first killer app.’

In 2019, prior to her purchase of a Tesla, a tweet from fake tweet from AOC spread while Hurricane Dorian was rampaging across Florida.

The fake message read: ‘I see people are rushing out to fill up their cars for this hurricane at the gas station. This wouldn’t be an issue if they had electric cars. If the power is out for a week how are they going to get gas? We need to start planning ahead and moving forward.’ 

According to Snopes: ‘The tweet was just a fabricated barb aimed at making Ocasio-Cortez look foolish.’
