Outspoken inventor, billionaire, and corporate mogul Elon Musk was in the spotlight again this week after Time magazine named him “Person of the Year.”
Not all of that attention was positive, however, as far-left Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D) used the occasion as an opportunity to call for higher taxes. However, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX showed that he was willing to hit back hard, calling her “Senator Karen” in a tweet.
According to the New York Post, the spat began on Monday when Warren tweeted out an article about Musk along with a statement that read, “Let’s change the rigged tax code so The Person of the Year will actually pay taxes and stop freeloading off everyone else.”
Musk strikes back
“Stop projecting!” Musk quickly shot back. He linked to an opinion piece published by Fox News that accused Warren of having faked her status as a Native American in order to capitalize on affirmative action policies to advance her education and career.
He then dropped a bomb on the Massachusetts congresswoman, writing, “And if you opened your eyes for 2 seconds, you would realize I will pay more taxes than any American in history this year.”
