Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claims to know “guys” like President Donald Trump like the back of her hand.

The New York Democratic socialist reacted to the president’s comments on Monday by boasting on Twitter that she is “getting “under his skin.”

On his way out of the White House on Monday, Trump was asked about the freshman congresswoman and her recent attack on him as a “racist.”

Ocasio-Cortez told Anderson Cooper in a “60 Minutes” interview that there is “no question” that Trump is a racist, calling the words he uses “historic dog whistles of white supremacy.”

“Mr. President, congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez called you a racist,” a reporter shouted out to the president Monday outside of the White House.

“Who did?” Trump asked as the reporter informed him it was the 29-year-old New York lawmaker.

“Who cares?” Trump exclaimed, waving a dismissive hand.

Ocasio-Cortez soon responded to a tweet by CNN’s Jim Sciutto, claiming Trump’s disregard for her comments were actually a sign that she had struck a nerve.

And while her jab about bartending in an attack against a man who does not even drink was pointless enough, Ocasio Cortez wasn’t done.

She followed up with another shot at Trump, mocking his wealth and “the real reason he’s hiding his taxes,” noting he has nothing to fear from her idea to fund her “Green New Deal” by taxing the super wealthy at 70 percent.

Twitter users reacted to the congresswoman’s ridiculous claims and Trump’s appropriate response.

And while Twitter users slammed Ocasio-Cortez for her most recent displays of ignorance,  former New Hampshire governor John Sununu unleashed an epic rant against the “illiterate millennials” like the freshman lawmaker from New York.

Discussing former President Obama’s recent remarks about the Democratic Party needing “new blood,” Sununu called out the crop of contenders Democrats are rolling out in an interview with Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom” on Monday.

“If Obama was referring to the quantitatively illiterate millennials who don’t know the difference between a million, billion, or a trillion, like Ocasio Cortez, or perhaps to the anti-Catholic wing of the Democratic party like [Sen.] Kamala Harris, the Republicans are thrilled to have him stick his nose where it ought not to be,” the former chief speechwriter for President George W. Bush told anchor Bill Hemmer.

Speaking about Trump’s reelection and the 2020 race, Sununu noted that his “path is paved by the goals and the chaos of the Democratic party, and what will be the irresponsibility of the Democratically-controlled House,” he said. “I think you will see over time they will begin to change their minds.”
