‘He’s not wrong’: Defensive AOC digs deeper after Elon Musk rips her for being ‘not that smart’


U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is not known for her intellectual prowess and Elon Musk noted as much on X regarding her so-called “math” when it comes to illegal immigration.

“The numbers — when it comes to people coming to New York City today — are nothing, I’m telling you, nothing, compared to the daily amounts of people that we saw coming in through Ellis Island in the first half of [last] century,” Ocasio-Cortez said in a video she posted to her Instagram account on Friday.

“We had seen just huge numbers of people coming in per day that far eclipsed what we’re seeing right now,” she claimed.

Author and conservative influencer Ashley St. Clair took a swipe at the leftist “genius,” posting to X on Wednesday, “Girl math is saying immigrants coming legally through Ellis Island is the same as 3 million undocumented migrants pouring through our border and costing NYC $1,000,000,000 to house migrants for free in hotels.”

St. Clair’s reference to “girl math” is a swipe at Ocasio-Cortez who made fun of House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) by saying, “Boy math is needing 15 attempts to count the votes correctly to become Speaker and then shutting down the government 9 months later.”

The post ignited a new war of words between the Socialist Democrat and the freedom-loving billionaire.

“I wasn’t born rich and became the youngest woman in American history to be elected to Congress. Then I investigated Cohen, authored the largest FEMA funeral assistance program in history and led creation of a US Climate Corps to create tens of thousands of new jobs. Stay mad,” she clapped back.

Musk just couldn’t resist and nailed the New York socialist.

“First, please allow me to congratulate you on these epic achievements. However, have you considered, rather than ‘funeral assistance’, that FEMA focus its funding on preventing funerals in the first place?” he asked her.

Then he used perfected sarcasm to put Ocasio-Cortez into orbit, “I take it back – you’re obviously a genius.”

The Ocasio-Cortez parody account mocked her with a hilarious take on her post:

Predictably, Ocasio-Cortez was raked over the coals by just about everyone else for making idiotic statements that are demonstrably not true and for getting her fur up over Musk making an accurate statement:
