Elon Musk Roasts Bernie Sanders With Epic Twitter Reply

The left is in a fuss again from Elon Musk dropping some roasts on their idols (and ideals) – this time poking fun at Senator Bernie Sanders in a Twitter reply.

Most know that when it comes to the far-left, and especially Bernie Sanders worshippers, there’s already an underlying disdain for those who are doing financially well for themselves. Most know the mantras they peddle constantly, broad brushing millionaires (which Sanders is ironically one) and billionaires as evil or exploitative and never contributing their proverbial “fair share”.

Thus, the Bernie bros couldn’t handle seeing their idol mocked by billionaire Elon Musk.

On November 13th, Senator Sanders took to Twitter to say, frankly, what he always says: that “the extremely wealthy” are somehow not paying “their fair share.”

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

One day after posting the aforementioned, Musk replied to Senator Sanders Tweet with a quippy, single sentence that sent leftists into a frenzy.

“I keep forgetting that you’re still alive.”

The Tesla CEO added on to his reply, making reference to his recently sold Tesla stocks that would compel him to pay taxes on said sold stocks – since Democrats were originally upset that no one pays taxes on unrealized gains (a.k.a., the value of a stock that someone hasn’t sold, meaning no money was actually earned until it gets sold).

“Want me to sell more stock, Bernie? Just say the word.”

Among those outraged over Musk’s quip was Shaun King – who some jokingly refer to as Talcom X or Martin Luther Cream – who responded with “What a deeply gross and inhumane thing to say.”

Screenwriter Amy Holden Jones, whose contributions to cinema consist of the likes of the insufferable “Beethoven” movie (as in the ones with the slobbering Saint Bernard), responded that she’ll “never buy a Tesla” due to Musk’s tweet.

The Young Turks host John Iadarola was also big mad over his lord and savior Bernie Sanders being jabbed at by Musk, replying with “It must kill you to realize more and more as the years pass that no matter how much money you have you’ll never be cool.”

As we’ve previously reported here at Red Voice Media, Musk is a pretty funny individual online, having also poked fun at another Democratic senator on Twitter by telling him his profile picture looked like he “just came.”
