Elon Musk Trolls Socialist Bernie Sanders Over ‘Fair Sharing’ Statements

Never backing down from his critics, Tesla CEO Elon Musk responded to socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for demanding that the wealthy pay their “fair share”.

On Saturday, Bernie Sanders tweeted another one of the “fair share” hot shots of the garden variety that has become synonymous with the overtly socialist senator from Vermont from “Make America Great Again” with former President Donald Trump.

“We must demand that the extremely wealthy pay their fair share. Period,” Sanders tweeted.

“I keep forgetting he’s still alive,” Musk replied on Sunday.

Sanders and Musk got into a Twitter shootout last March when the socialist senator criticized the billionaire for focusing on space travel rather than earth.

“We are at a time in American history where two men – Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos – own more wealth than the bottom 40% of people in this country. This level of greed and inequality is not just immoral. Unsustainable,” Sanders tweeted.

“I’m accumulating resources to help make life multiplanetary and spread the light of consciousness to the stars,” Musk said.

Sanders disagreed with Musk, arguing that inequality in America was too “obscene” to be cast aside in favor of space travel.

“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 don’t become homeless, and all Americans get healthcare. “The level of inequality in America is obscene and a threat to our democracy,” Sanders said.

Elon Musk’s last argument with Bernie Sanders came just days after Tesla sold $6 billion in stock. reply According to a Twitter poll by the Associated Press:

Musk’s sale comes days after he created a Twitter poll in which millions voted and asked if he would sell 10 percent of his large stake in the electric car maker.

On Saturday, Musk tweeted: “A lot has been done lately from unrealized gains as a way to avoid taxes, so I propose selling 10% of my Tesla stock. Do you support that?”

In the poll, almost 58 percent of the 3.5 million votes cast were in favor of continuing the sale.

Tesla shares fell at the Wall Street opening on Monday and have fallen further since then.

Last month, after relocating his company from California to Texas, Musk advised the liberal city of Austin not to go the way of San Francisco by enforcing destructive policies such as “financing the police.”

“Austin should be his city, not a San Francisco copycat,” the billionaire said.
