New York Mag’s gushing AOC essays draw ridicule from Twitter

CHECK OUT and for holiday gifts and awesome snarky swag!

New York Magazine is currently producing a series of essays on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and the overly-complimentary nature of them is getting roasted on Twitter.

“Take up Space: The Unprecedented AOC” is a book of essays that is described as “an in-depth look at one of the most prominent political and cultural stars in recent memory.” If that isn’t enough to get the gag reflex going…

The writings reportedly explore the young congresswoman’s “unprecedented position in American politics,” as well as “her rare authenticity” and “the role her beauty plays in public perception.” One piece even disses her man by noting the “total average-ness of her boyfriend.”

But don’t mistake this as being a bipartisan look into the life and times of AOC, no this is absolutely a fluff piece, or series of fluff pieces, aimed at explaining to the world in a million different ways how incredibly awesome the young lawmaker is.

Twitter users were quick to jump on the “ridiculous propaganda” that is this collection of essays:

One particularly concise Twitter user cut to the heart of the matter with a two-word tweet:

Yes, apparently New York Magazine found out how to produce 400-pages of literature out of the congresswoman taking up space.

Tune in for their next literary adventure, “Squeezing Blood from a Stone.”
