Elon Musk says that AOC has 'great lipstick taste'

Elon Musk said that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has 'great taste in lipstick,' which seems to be a resumption of their feud.

Musk said this on a podcast called "Full Send," where several co-hosts talked about how the 32-year-old Congresswoman looked.

Two of the co-hosts said that AOC was "pretty," and the third said that the New York socialist was "fine."

Musk then said, "Yeah, I think that lipstick is a great choice. I mean, I think you have great taste in lipstick, so to speak. That's a nice thing to say."

Musk added, "Tell me I'm wrong," as he sipped an alcoholic seltzer and laughed with the podcast hosts.

When asked about Musk's comments, AOC's office did not respond right away.

The richest person in the world and Ocasio-Cortez have been at odds in the past.

In April, Ocasio-Cortez tweeted: “Tired of having to collectively stress about what explosion of hate crimes is happening bc some billionaire with an ego problem unilaterally controls a massive communication platform.”

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

Then, Ocasio-Cortez said she was talking about Mark Zuckerberg, not Musk, and she deleted the tweet.

She later posted a screenshot of her conversation with Musk with a shrugging emoji and the caption, "Like I said, ego problems."

Then, in May, Ocasio-Cortez said she wanted to get rid of her Tesla Model 3, which she bought in 2020 so she could get from her district in New York City to Washington, DC. She said she wanted to buy a car from a business with union workers.

“At the time, it was the only EV that could get me from New York to Washington on like one, or one-and-a-half charges,” she said of her Tesla. “I would love to switch.”

Musk, meanwhile, posted a Twitter poll asking his followers whether they have more trust in billionaires or politicians. His followers chose billionaires — and Musk dared Ocasio-Cortez to run the same poll with her own followers. 

The Tesla CEO recounted the exchange on Thursday’s podcast episode, saying that Ocasio-Cortez “was like coming after me or some bulls—t, I don’t know.”

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

“People in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones,” he added.
