AOC Doubles Down On Promoting Elon Musk Conspiracy Theories

  • Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) doubled down on an unfounded conspiracy theory Thursday afternoon after Twitter CEO Elon Musk mocked her complaints about paying $8 per month for premium services on the platform.
  • “Also, my Twitter mentions/notifications conveniently aren’t working tonight, so I was informed via text that I seem to have gotten under a certain billionaire’s skin,” she claimed. “Just a reminder that money will never buy your way out of insecurity, folks.”
  • Ocasio-Cortez doubled down on those claims in a video she posted to Instagram, saying, “I was at a community event in the Bronx in Coop city, and when I get home, I see a text from my team saying, ‘Hey let me know if you need any help with this Elon stuff.’”
