Social Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York criticized billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk after he criticized her over her response to the refugee crisis in New York City.
Musk was responding to a letter against Ocasio-Cortez after she mocked Republicans because the federal government was heading toward a budget shutdown.
“Young math takes 15 tries to correctly count the votes to become speaker and then 9 months later to overthrow the government,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
The Post mocked Ocasio-Cortez for attempting to downplay the refugee crisis by comparing the number of illegal immigrants sent to New York City to the number of millions of immigrants who traveled through Ellis Island between 1892 and 1954.
“She’s just not that smart,” Musk replied.
Ocasio-Cortez didn’t even mention the refugee crisis in her response, instead praising her accomplishments to prove that she is indeed smart.
“I was not born rich and became the youngest woman in American history elected to Congress. Then I researched Cohen, authored FEMA’s largest funeral assistance program in history, and led the creation of a U.S. Climate Corps to create tens of thousands of new jobs. Stay crazy,” she said replied with an emoji of a woman tossing her hair.
Other New York City officials did not share Ocasio-Cortez’s opinion that the number of migrants was “nothing.” New York City Mayor Eric Adams has called on the federal government to take responsibility, saying the cost of caring for the migrants is destroying the city.
Meanwhile, Musk criticized the media for ignoring the massive surge in illegal immigrants at the border and said Monday that he planned to visit the border to see the crisis for himself.
The far-left socialist and Musk had previously clashed after he revealed his plan to charge Twitter users for certain features of the popular social media application. He later renamed the service X.
