  • Democrat Squad member has been promising to get rid of his Model 3 for over a year
  • Challenged on CBS’s Face the Nation, he cited vaccine shortage as reason for holding off
  • The audience was not impressed, many struggled to understand his point.



Viewers were left scratching their heads Sunday morning when Democrat radical Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez explained why she still has a Tesla, despite claiming she planned to replace it with a union-built model.

The New York congresswoman faced criticism in 2021 when it emerged that she had purchased a $35,000 Model 3 from Elon Musk’s non-union company, despite numerous disputes with the world’s richest man.

Last year she said she would love to switch from the unionized workforce to electric cars, but yesterday viewers were a little wiser after she was challenged about her procrastination on CBS’s Face the Nation.

‘Is it a quality problem, is it a style problem, is there no market?’ asked host Margaret Brennan.

‘Look, our car was purchased during the pandemic when travel, largely, occurred before the vaccine came out, so we determined an EV was the safest way to travel between New York and Washington,’ he explained.

New York’s radical Democrat congresswoman stunned the audience with her fearless explanation
AOC has had her Tesla Mark since at least 2021, despite repeated promises to trade it in in exchange for a car from the unionized workforce.
Face the Nation viewers were not impressed with what they heard and some accused her of making ‘word-salad’.

‘But this was before some of the new models coming onto the market had a wider range available, but we are actually looking at trading in our car now and hopefully we will do so soon.’

Controversy erupted on social media when viewers tried to tease out the meaning behind the words and some admitted that the attempt defeated them.

@JerichoXVI tweeted, ‘If it makes any sense to you, quit drinking all day and lie down.’

‘AOC makes word salad for breakfast, claims she bought a Tesla because the jab wasn’t available so it was safe that way,’ @berryrazzi said.

‘Apparently AOC only got a Tesla because… the vaccine hasn’t arrived yet?’ Written above the best.

Absolutely hilarious. “He said the reason he bought a Tesla was because the vaccine hadn’t come out yet,” another added.

News of the squad member’s Tesla surfaced in 2021 when it was found parked illegally outside a Whole Foods in Washington DC.

She has already reprimanded the company regarding the crores of rupees received as subsidy.

In December 2018 he said, ‘When we as a public choose to invest in new technologies, we deserve a return on that investment.’

‘For too long, we gave money to Tesla, we gave money to a lot of people and we got no return on the investment that the public made in creating the technology, and now it’s time that we get our due because it It is the public that has funded and funded many innovative technologies.’

Congresswoman has had personal dispute with Tesla’s Elon Musk on social media
Face the Nation host Margaret Brennan quotes the congresswoman’s comments
Some accused the squad member of hypocrisy, while others warned that she would get a bad deal if she kept her promise.

Her dislike ran deep and became strangely personal as she got into a direct argument with her company’s owner on Twitter, who told her to stop flirting with him.

“Tired of collectively harping on how hate crimes are exploding because a few billionaires with ego problems single-handedly control a massive communications platform,” she wrote in a tweet.

Musk responded, adding a blushing emoji, “Stop hitting on me, I’m really shy.”

“I was talking about Zuckerberg, but okay,” she replied before deleting the tweet a minute later.
