On Monday morning, Twitter CEO Elon Musk unleashed on Senator Elizabeth Warren after she took a shot at Tesla by writing a letter to Tesla’s board asking if investors have been “harmed” by Musk’s acquisition of Twitter.
“Elizabeth Warren has written a letter to Tesla’s board asking whether investors have been harmed by the billionaire tech mogul’s time running the social network, per NYT,” said Unusual Whales on Twitter.
Farzad Mesbahi reacted to the tweet from Unusual Whales, stating: “Elizabeth Warren is the last person I would ever want anywhere close to Tesla.”
Musk then replied to Mesbahi’s tweet by taking a direct shot at Warren.
“The United States has definitely been harmed by having her as a senator lol,” he tweeted.

Warren is threatening “significant legal questions” against Musk in relation to labor laws and corporate laws, accusing Musk of abusing power since his takeover of Twitter.
The question of abusing power is quite ironic considering Warren is a member of the political elite class in America.
“As you know, it is the legal obligation of Tesla’s board to ensure that its C.E.O. is meeting all his legal responsibilities and serving as an effective leader,” she said in the Sunday letter.
Back in November, Warren told CBS late night host Stephen Colbert that she is very upset about Musk’s acquisition of Twitter.
“I don’t think any billionaire ought to be the one who has that kind of power, to decide how Americans, how people around the world get a chance to talk to each other,” Warren said. “I got a real problem with him.”
“This deal is dangerous for our democracy. Billionaires like Elon Musk play by a different set of rules than everyone else, accumulating power for their own gain. We need a wealth tax and strong rules to hold Big Tech accountable,” she ironically said in a tweet.
