It doesn’t take much to trigger the intolerant left these days, anything outside their twisted worldview is certain to send them squealing in search of their favorite safe space so you can only imagine how they’d respond to a screenshot of new Twitter boss Elon Musk taking in the Super Bowl alongside News Corp chair and Fox News founder Rupert Murdoch.
A camera captured Musk sitting with Murdoch, 91, at State Farm Stadium on Sunday as the Super Bowl LVII broadcast came back from commercial — the big game was on Fox this year. Also in the shot was Murdoch’s girlfriend Ann-Lesley Smith, and his daughter, Elizabeth Murdoch.
“Well you’ve got some brilliant minds in that photo, Rupert Murdoch, Elizabeth Murdoch, Elon Musk,” announcer Kevin Burkhardt said, before adding, “Rupert pays our checks, too, so that’s always good.”
And that’s all it took to send the extreme left’s outrage machine into full meltdown, screaming like rabid chihuahuas about “fascists.”

The announcers call Elon Musk and Rupert Murdoch brilliant then immediately declare WHY they called Murdoch brilliant. Good to know the owner of this platform is hobnobbing with the head a right-wing propaganda machine. Politically independent or fascist? pic.twitter.com/Ta35ue1hbL

Evidently, U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., can’t keep her eyes off Musk, although a social media user reminded her once again that the billionaire still has no interest in dating her — this being a play on Musk teasingly replying last year to criticism from her, “Stop hitting on me, I’m really shy.”
“Birds of a feather flock together,” AOC tweeted.
Give it up, he’s not going to date you.

Here’s a sampling of some of the cleaner rantings from the triggered left over the Musk-Murdoch pairing — perhaps, fear of what the two billionaires could be cooking up sent some over the edge.
Elon Musk hangs out with Kevin McCarthy and Rupert Murdoch, so it’s time for the New York Times to do another story about how impossible it is to tell his political stance.

Rupert Murdoch and Elon Musk sitting together. I assume Satan couldn’t make it because of a Nickelback concert.

“Brilliant minds: Rupert Murdoch and Elon Musk.”Just a reminder that this network is 100 percent evil empire.

As for Musk, he remained true to form having a little fun with all the attention, as seen in his reply below on what they may have been talking about:

Recall the old commercial, “When EF Hutton talks, people listen?” Well, Musk appears to be a modern version of that adage:
Elon Musk just made one tweet reply saying he was talking about #Dogecoin with Rupert Murdoch at the super bowl and this instantly happened pic.twitter.com/4OMKqMom0d
