Ocasio-Cortez has no problem threatening Don Jr., but watch her go full victim when she’s called a b*tch for it

If Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has proven anything thus far, other than a tendency to say some really dumb things, the self-avowed democratic socialist has shown that she can play the victim at a drop of the hat.

The New York Democrat spends a lot of time online looking for Twitter fights, vacillating between being a strong progressive woman and a poor victimized female at her convenience, as was seen Friday when she responded to conservative Michael Moates ripping her for exploiting her status as a newly elected congresswoman to threaten Donald Trump Jr.

“There is a new standard in Congress, Bitches will subpoena you if you troll them,” Moates tweeted.

It didn’t help his cause that the tweet has since been taken down, only adding to Ocasio-Cortez’s priggish stand — though it was a poor choice of words.

Ocasio-Cortez responded to the now-deleted tweet: “Wow! A Republican journalist calling me the B-word as he deliberately misinterprets my statement. Awesome job. How many female leaders have you covered in your career? I’m sure your coverage was very fair and not subconsciously biased at all.”

Feeling more empowered after the deletion, she grabbed a screenshot and added: “Hey, Michael Moates (@freedom_moates)! You can run from your misogyny, but you can’t hide. And @dcexaminer can’t hide that they choose to publish you AND the journalist who posted a creep shot of my behind to discuss my clothing. ?? cool.”

It’s instructive that Ocasio-Cortez called out the Washington Examiner in her rebuttal, looking to even an older score.

The dust up began when Ocasio-Cortez came under fire for potential ethics violations for threatening President Trump’s oldest son for mocking her online — Trump Jr. posted a meme suggesting that as a result of her socialist views, Americans will be eating their dogs instead of walking them.

She responded to Trump Jr. by threatening to use the “subpoena power” of Congress against him.

One thing is certain, Moates was reveling in the sudden notoriety, doubling down on his contention that Ocasio-Cortez was abusing her power — already, and she hasn’t even been sworn in.


Social media users were quick to react, noting the hypocrisy of the left when it comes to one of their own attacking the media — to be fair, Moates was only an occasional contributor who has no recent offerings.

Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:

The problem with anything related to Ocasio-Cortez is that it ultimately devolves into a series of memes ridiculing the socialist for all the foolish things she says.
