‘I Keep Forgetting That You’re Still Alive’ Elon Musk Triggers Progressives With Epic Dismissal of Bernie Sanders

Tesla CEO Elon Musk triggered liberals in an epic dismissal of U.S. Sen Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in response to a tweet by the twice-failed presidential candidate.

In the tweet that Musk responded to, Sanders declared, “We must demand that the extremely wealthy pay their fair share. Period.”

“I keep forgetting that you’re still alive,” Musk deadpanned in response.

In a subsequent tweet, Musk added, “Want me to sell more stock, Bernie? Just say the word …”

Twitter verified progressives descended on the tweet including author Frederick Joseph, who told Musk, “You may end up dying the wealthiest man in history, but the route you’re going you’ll also be the most hated. Disgusting.”

Others attempted to throw the fact that Musk’s companies have received subsidies in his face, of course, not realizing the irony that the subsidies were approved by politicians they support and pushed by them in the first place.

“Journalist” Molly Jong-Fast shared an article that highlighted the subsidies that helped him build his empire and asked Musk, “Why are you so mad at government?”

Former U.S. House Rep Jason Kander (D-MI) shared a screenshot of Sanders’ tweet and Musk’s initial response, claiming, “Elon Musk: Could’ve been Tony Stark. Chose to be Obadiah Stane.”
