Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has frequently been in the news since she was elected to New York’s 14th district in 2018. Sometimes it is because of Conservatives fixation on her words and actions. Sometimes it’s because of her impassioned questioning of figures like Michael Cohen.
Recently, the President attempted to twist a state from AOC to be complimentary towards him. The New York Congresswoman quickly tweeted back at Trump, telling him that she sees right through his words.
The situation began when Ocasio-Cortez told ABC News, “I think that we have a very real risk of losing the presidency to Donald Trump if we do not have a presidential candidate that is fighting for true transformational change in the lives of working people in the United States.”
The President took this to mean that Democrats fear him. He tweeted, “Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. ‘I think we have a very real risk of losing the Presidency to Donald Trump.’ I agree, and that is the only reason they play the impeach card, which cannot be legally used.”
AOC was quick to correct the record with a savage reply. “Mr. President, you’re from Queens,” wrote the Freshman Congresswoman. “You may fool the rest of the country, but I’ll call your bluff any day of the week. Opening an impeachment inquiry is exactly what we must do when the President obstructs justice, advises witnesses to ignore legal subpoenas, & more.”

This isn’t the first time that Ocasio-Cortez got the better of someone who tried to twist her words on Twitter. It’s probably best for Conservatives to avoid tweeting at her in the future.
