Tesla CEO Elon Musk issued a withering tweet to Sen. Bernie Sanders, after the Vermont independent, called for cutting corporate taxes.
“How did @bernieandheart he kill the poor….I keep forgetting that you’re still alive,” Musk tweeted.

Sanders endorsed Democratic candidate Andrew Gillum, who is challenging Florida governor Rick Scott, in the upcoming Florida primary, and backed former Walmart president Doug McMillon for the same position in Missouri, all while railing against the “billionaire class.”
“You are endorsing people who are very anti-worker,” Sanders said in an interview on “The Beat with S.E. Cupp” earlier in the week. “These are two people who want to protect the interests of their billionaire donors and for the global corporations. I don’t know why they are putting their name to an endorsement like that.”
If you support @SenSanders, and you believe corporate tax cuts benefit the middle class and American workers, there is nothing you can do.
If you are a proud corporate taxpayer, I guess you could petition @BetoORourke & @RepRoKhanna & #Beto4Senate.
Ask them to tell McConnell to bring the vote up.https://t.co/r4evBriPMY — Bernie Sanders (@SenSanders) August 6, 2018
I guess it seems that @SenSanders may not know that I am a corporate taxpayer @maxposner https://t.co/TLTVFzXt1o — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) August 8, 2018
I also support @realDonaldTrump and his tax cuts for working people. @BetoORourke & @RepRoKhanna both want to raise corporate taxes, which means they are supporting the same policies as @GeorgeH.W. Bush who signed the biggest corporate tax increase in history. https://t.co/d1qNbETFxd — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) August 8, 2018
To my favorite author @BernieSanders: the fact is that the only reason you’re living is bc of your own extraordinary luck, & as a result, there is a majority of the U.S. who live in misery. America isn’t doing well because of rich people, but because of big corporations who take advantage of a weak polity (see the example of @GovernorGA Johnson) https://t.co/ajpiQADwuv — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) August 8, 2018
