Elon Musk isn’t the biggest fan of Bernie Sanders, in fact, he thought the man who many would like to see as POTUS was dead.

Sanders wants to tax the wealthy, and Musk is insanely rich. This creates an issue at times for the two, because they don’t see eye to eye. Musk slammed Sanders by saying that he may as well be dead as far as he sees things.

This exchange between the two incredibly influential people went down over the weekend. Sanders tweeted out to say that, “We must demand that the extremely wealthy pay their fair share. Period.’

Then Elon Musk replied to Sanders to say, “I keep forgetting that you’re still alive.” The Tesla founder then tweeted out, “Want me to sell more stock, Bernie? Just say the word …


Musk lost a Twitter poll that would see him sell a ton of Tesla stock, $25 billion worth to be precise. EM has also teased with ending world hunger if they can convince him that the money would be spent correctly.

Obviously, Bernie would be for feeding the hungry, but he would also like to see Musk and other billionaires pay their fair share of taxes.

Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
