Elon Musk says AOC has ‘great taste in lipstick’

Elon Musk said Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has “very good taste in lipstick” in an apparent reign of his feud with the New York congresswoman.

Musk commented a podcast Called Full Send, in which several co-hosts commented about the 32-year-old congressman’s appearance.

Two co-hosts called the AOC “charming,” while the other said the New York socialist was “fine.”

Musk then added, “Yeah, great choice of lipstick I think. Lipstick tastes great, I mean, that’s my observation. It’s a real compliment.”

“Tell me I’m wrong,” Musk said, sipping a drunken seltzer and laughing with the podcast hosts.

The AOC’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Musk’s remarks.

The world’s richest man has a history of feud with Ocasio-Cortez.

In April, Ocasio-Cortez tweeted: “Tired of being collectively tense about an explosion of hate crimes, as some billionaire with ego problems unilaterally controls the communication platform.”

“Stop hitting on me, I’m really shy,” Musk replied.

Ocasio-Cortez then said she was referring to Mark Zuckerberg – not Musk – then deleted the tweet.

She later posted a screenshot of her back-and-forth with Musk along with a shrinking emoji and the caption, “Like I said, ego problems.”

Then in May, Ocasio-Cortez said she was looking to abandon her Tesla Model 3, which she bought in 2020, to commute between her New York City district and Washington, DC. She said she was looking to buy a car from a company that uses union labor.

“At the time, it was the only EV that could take me from New York to Washington for like a fee or one and a half,” he said of his Tesla. “I’d love to switch.”

Meanwhile, Musk posted a Twitter poll asking his followers if he had more trust in billionaires or politicians. His followers chose billionaires – and Musk dared Ocasio-Cortez to run the same poll with his followers.

Referring to the exchange in Thursday’s podcast episode, the Tesla CEO said that Ocasio-Cortez was “like following me or some bull-t, I don’t know.”

“She was saying billionaires are bad and you’re billionaires so you’re bad,” Musk said. “And I was like, well, you’re a politician.”

“People should not throw stones in glass houses,” he said.
