Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just threatened Donald Trump Jr. and it backfired in the worst way

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is quickly becoming the laughing stock of Congress.

She continues to make public gaffes and errors that reveal how naïve she is.

And this time she really stepped in it.

Donald Trump Jr. posted a meme making fun of her and socialism.

Then, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted back threatening to subpoena him.

What she did not realize is that it is an ethics violation for a member of Congress to threaten litigation against anyone over partisan politics.

The Daily Caller reports:

Donald Trump Jr. shared a meme that featured Ocasio-Cortez on his Instagram that claimed the policies of socialism will cause Americans to eat their dogs. The meme shows two images: one of Ocasio-Cortez with the text, “Why are you so afraid of a socialist economy?” and another image beneath Ocasio-Cortez of President Donald Trump with an overlay of text saying, “Because Americans want to walk their dogs, not eat them.”

In response to a Washington Post write up of the meme, Ocasio-Cortez threatened to use the “subpoena power” of Congress against Trump Jr.

Commenters pointed out that the act of threatening to use the power of Congress against other Americans for partisan gain is prohibited by ethics rules.

Sean Davis of the Federalist pointed to House Ethics Manual stipulations that members of Congress are “prohibited from threatening” due to partisan politics and cited the statute.

It is unlikely that Donald Trump Jr. will seek ethics charges (even though he was the one threatened).

But Ocasio-Cortez is playing fast and loose.

She is ignorant of the laws, and it could land her in seriously hot water.

But radical Democrats are still eating it up.

    Did her handler aka boyfriend ever return the million bucks in campaign money that she turned over to him? They are in trouble with the federal election committee over those funds.. Once boyfriend invests the money into his hedge fund–they can spend it as they please and what they have done is a felony I believe because the intent was to defraud. Campaign money can only be spent on campaigns as ilhad Omar is finding out..

    I would love to debate her so i could show the world how stupid she really is.

  3. Npp says:

  4. David Kennedy says:

    Cant believe her, she is such an idiot.

  5. L. Shamus McQuade says:

    There is an old saying…Misery Loves Company” she is PERFECT for NY, NYC and Cuomo 2.0 and the people in NY. And for those who still live there and do not like these idiots…MOVE!!!!!!…..get out of denial and go to another state that has less intellectual MORONS like NY, CA and Ill…Texas, Nevada and Wyoming are best. Stay away from Colorado on the East Range it is another liberal Bastion like Oregon near Portland……..if you wait for a career politician t solve problems, you have a long wait

  6. ELISA says:

    WE are in big trouble if the democrats support this “Cortez of the world”. GOD BLESS THE USA.

  7. Barbara Matthews says:

    She belongs with the democrats.
    This is so laughable

  8. Christopher L. Hugar says:

    Hard to believe AOC is so stupid. My real fear is that many of our existing representatives are equally idiotic. I remember a rep asking if the island of Hawaii would sink because of the increase in population. Some are blaming climate change for the immigration problem. I’ll never forget we have to pass the bill to see what’s in it. In fact, the only people more stupid than our leaders are the people who voted for them.

    • libra says:

      Sometime when you want a laugh–google congress and how many members have criminal records. You will be amazed. Google will never say who dunnit but I know of a defrocked judge who is in the House of Rep..The slush fund paid off a woman he got sexual with. Sure wish Trump would force the publication of that slush fund and make the congressmen pay the millions back to the taxpayers. They are such low lives in the House that it would be comic if it were not such a tragedy.

  9. The question posed is flawed!

  10. CF says:

    Boston University must be cringing every time this ignoramus opens her mouth and sticks both feet in it. She is an embarrassment to the school and demeans its stature with every appearance.

  11. Harold Jones says:

    She’s a libtard nut case I don’t see how she even got elected must be a bunch of nutcases in her state

  12. Sharon Rebaya says:

    Blame the BS all the democratics in the state of New York… She has no idea what the hell she getting into…. But she will find out that one is the just that one… She will find out what the democratic Party will be all about, good luck Nancy, Chuckie, you all are going to wish that numb nuts has never been elected… Should be quite interesting and fun to watch this little girl make a total jackasses of her self. And yes she will be good for lots of laughs, she Bragg’s alot about what she thinks she can do best be careful you just might be the one facing criminal charges, jail time, even impeachment… And just so you know little girl the people of the united States will be watching your every move, you will be good for lots of laughs…

    • Sandra Kirk says:

      Oh. Goodness, let that brain dead idiot keep talking. The dems will eventually shut her up, but she will cause them alot of problems first!! Can’t for her idiot to say more and the dims will all have a melt down!!!

  13. We use to use the term educated idiot but she is worse than that she is an educated ignoramus. Everything she says is wrong. She is ignorant of the Constitution and how the government works as well as congressional procedures and rules. She supports a system by which the major means of production and distribution are owned, managed, or controlled by the government. It is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy. Its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.

  14. J. W. says:

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez must have written today’s pulse pool; because, it is not a yes or no question. It is an either-or question. I believe that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is no more of a liability than “Mad” Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi, Dianne Feinstein,o even Chuck U. Schummer.

    • Sandy Kolosey says:

      Good call. I was questioning the vote item, as well.
      Ocasio Cortez should be on a watch list, though her
      statements and behavior are heloful to Republicans and Conservatives. Too bad young Dems believe her

  15. Bill says:

    Apparently she is still punch drunk from her time as a bartender. It’s pretty obvious she was hitting on the hard stuff really frequently, burned up a lot of brain cells of which she doesn’t have any to spare.

  16. Papa Harley says:

    Is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as asset or liability for the Democratic Party?
    The question makes no sense. Two separate questions with answers that can fit both questions. If that makes any sense! If you say yes to one side of the question you can’t say no to the other side. How long is she going to be around? Giving me a headache already and she is not sworn in yet!

    • Very few people who write nowadays actually care about what they write, especially the media. Stories everywhere are full of grammatical and factual errors. They are all too busy promoting themselves and playing on their phones to do an honest days work. That goes equally for the writer and poster of the question above. From the amount of duplicate poll questions I get from these same sights day after day, it just tells me they want you to view their advertising for their ‘free’ junk!

  17. William says:

    Who elected this idiotic buffoon to a public position? Go ahead i along with a lot of other American voters are waiting for a logical explanation. Oh wait, there’a no logical explanation, she”s an unqualigied idiot pure and simple. and the laughing stock of Congress. She ‘ll continue to make public gaffes and errors that reveal how naïve and stupid really she is. Sh’es good for a laugh after all.

    • Sandra Kirk says:

      Actually, I’m a bit glad she is there. She is the laughing stock of the world! It truly makes the demoncraps all look like total idiots!!! She is going to make the entire party look like a bunch of fraud clowns!!😂😂😂

  18. Eric Granberg says:

    This you care about. But you DON’T care about all the criminal things so called President Trump pulls.

    • So name some of those criminal things…..

    • Here lil Eric…here’s who you run with and these are the REAL CRIMINALS thet should be locked away…
      Chairman Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) launched the latest probe after the former Chief Financial Officer of the Clinton Foundation, Andrew Kessel begin working as a government informant.

      Tellingly, Kessel submitted 6,000 pages of evidence secretly more than a year ago. (The Hill)

      That evidence was assembled by a private firm called MDA Analytics LLC, run by accomplished ex-federal criminal investigators, who alleged the Clinton Foundation engaged in illegal activities and may be liable for millions of dollars in delinquent taxes and penalties.

      In addition to the IRS, the firm’s partners have had contact with prosecutors in the main Justice Department in Washington and FBI agents in Little Rock, Ark. And last week, a federal prosecutor suddenly asked for documents from their private investigation.

      The 48-page submission, dated Aug. 11, 2017, supports its claims with 95 exhibits, including internal legal reviews that the foundation conducted on itself in 2008 and 2011.

      Those reviews flagged serious concerns about legal compliance, improper commingling of personal and charity business and “quid pro quo” promises made to donors while Hillary Clinton was secretary of State.

    • Jake says:

      What about the criminal stunts of the Obama admin of yesterday ? Do you not care about that ?

    • Randy Smithr says:

      Eric, your a low information voter or completely clueless. I am just amazed at how lefties like you quickly sweep everything under the rug that your precious Obama, Hillary, susan rice, comey, strouk, the list is rather endless, have done and said. It’s disgusting and despicable. How sad you people really are.

  19. Russ says:

    Leave her be,
    We all need a laugh once in a while. Sho is an idiot so she can’t harm anyone and she can join Pelosi and Schumer for some great fun for us all.

  20. ROBERT says:

    KOTEX CORTEZ SHOULD BE DEPORTED TO EL SALVADORE.

  21. Karin says:

    Let’s all band together and send her a Pocket Constitution, American History Book, an Accountant’s Hand book, and a graphic designed montage of the parts and parcels of the Government she will be “Inaugurated” into. Add a Thesaurus. Of course we would have to include the Dick and Jane early readers.

    • Randy Smithr says:

      Great idea Karin for sure. However in the end this ocasio cortez person has not an oz of brain to comprehend anything of the sort and would be a waste of time.

  22. N says:

    Communism makes as much sense as Ocasio-Kotex does! That’s why it fails every time it rears its ugly head! Liberalism is a mental deranged disorder.

    • Bill says:

      Who elected this idiotic buffoon to a public position? Go ahead i along with a lot of other American voters are waiting for a logical explanation.

      • Linda_in_MA says:

        Bill: So far I’ve enjoyed reading about her stunningly stupid remarks and her complete lack of the very basics of how our government works or is structured. My concern is some piece of crucial legislation that is a very close vote could pass or fail depending on how this moron votes. Talk about lowering the bar! This has to be a new, all-time low, even for the House.

        MAGA!

  23. Duffy says:

    Remember, all the schools or colleges you all point to: are liberal ; so they would gradiate her on just being there. No, that is not an error , that’s how Cortez would spell it.

    • Jack Gajda says:

      Duffy, I knew gradiate wasn’t a mistake but, now you have me trying to figure out who says it like that? Was it one of “The Little Rascals”? I know Popeye says edumacation but, who says
      gradiate is going to drive me nuts. Do you know who it is???

  24. Ron says:

    Sad, sad democratic idiot. She fits right in with the party she affiliates with. What is this idiot going to subpoena Jr. for, expressing how he feels about her level of intelligence? That would be a waist of time because she has none. She keeps opening her mouth and removing all doubt.

  25. trapperwv1 says:

    I would like to see who she hires for her staff?

  26. Ronnie Britton says:

    You can tell looking into her eyes that she is extremely mentally I’ll. And anyone that voted for her is too.

  27. Jeanni says:

    I am glad that I am not from New York. How would I ever be able to explain Cortez winning the election there. There must be a lot of moron’s living in New York and there must be a lot of people who live there that are very embarrassed to have to admit that they do indeed live in New York and the majority of their neighbors are moron’s.

    • Pete Moss says:

      You’re correct on both. If I weren’t as old as I am, I’d bail, but I’m to old to start over. And if I did, it wouldn’t be to Fla.

      • Jack Gajda says:

        If I’m not mistaken NY is a sanctuary state or NYC is a sanctuary city either way. I wonder how many of the people that voted for this nut-job are illegal immigrants that shouldn’t be here, never mind be able to vote in the first place???

  28. Gerald Ladd says:

    She’s not the brightest spic on the planet!

    • Ric B says:

      But at LEAST she is smarter than those like you, who are racist idiots.

      • Robert Smith says:

        Go to hell .. anti – America.. its clear democrats are part fascist and all crazy .. hitler hated Christians and Jews , liberals like her hate Christianity and Jews , and are if your a child molester Islamic faggot they love you ..

      • Robert Smith says:

        And anytime you want a war ric bring it.. this vet took an oath to protect and defend against all enemies foreign and domestic.. you keep holler racist this racist been done played out .. the only one who’s been showing it is you liberals against Christians.. Jack wad.

      • This Cortez idiot is one of the biggest racist around…but dumb asses like you can’t see that.

  29. This woman with a child’s mentality does not belong in our government. She is a danger to our government and the people. Replace her with someone that thinks like an adult. If she wants to work with the government, she MAY qualify as a street cleaner, but that’s it.

  30. Frank Bowers says:

    As a kid in the 40’s we hunted and trapped beavers who had smaller and better teeth than this girl. It is so sad to see an elected official with so little knowledge of her elected position. What were the folks thinking there in NY.. Did any of them ever consider going to school and becoming aware of her ignorance of our national laws.

    • AndyDo says:

      No. Little AOC promised the poor Bronx voters she would get them a long list of free benefits from Federal Govt and blew out the longtime incumbent like a fuzzy dandelion in a tornado.

  31. Dave says:

    What kind of website asks if Alexandria O-C is an asset or a liability and their poll lets you choose “yes or “No”? Sometimes I think all they care about is getting one to open their email.

  32. James P Hutchins says:

    This Nazi is a moron and a half wit hey cortez shut your mouth you idiot you are a representative not a senator you are irrelevant to the American people.

  33. Dick says:

    She is one wacko woman. I can’t believe anyone voted for this thing. Wouldn’t it be great to have our Congress ran by idiots like her.

  34. Paul nam67 says:

    But the rest of us should not have to put up with her BS

  35. marlene saad says:

    Cortez is the Republican’s dream
    but not the Democrat’s.
    She has constipation of the brain and diarrhea of the mouth!
    They ought to take her and lock her up in a closet – or Democrats will lose every fight in 2020,

    • luglor72 says:

      Another pelosi type of brain this nutcase has.

    • Nanaof8 says:

      Sounds like a plan! DumbDems have been in charge for too long. Nothing that they promise to do ever comes to fruition. This ding-dong will fit in perfectly! 😂

    • Randy Smithr says:

      Yes Marlene, she will not help the Democrats with that kind of stupidity. Unfortunately there is a huge number of low information Democratic voters that think she is the best in the Democratic party. Unbelievable!!

  36. Meadowlands says:

    She is a raving lunatic. How you can run for something you know nothing about is beyond comprehension but who are the nuts who voted for her. She is a joke

  37. You need to review the question, “…as (an) asset liability…” there is no “yes” or “no” answer to this question because it includes both “asset” and “liability” as the options.

    • RightWriter says:

      Larry Nichols – right you are! The question is absurd, because AOC cannot be BOTH an asset AND a liability, and the proposed answers don’t let the respondent answer that she could be EITHER an asset OR a liability. Sometimes I think the people who run these chat boards have their SIX-YEAR-OLD KIDS writing the questions!

      • Byron says:

        They are just looking for hits on their website so they can sell advertising. They probably live in India and don’t care what we think. Its just a play on obvious emotions.

  38. Jondarmes says:

    She is a blithering idiot and is a real asset to the demoRAT party, she fits right in with Legosi, Liawatha, Mad Max, Slimy Schumer, and all the other raving squirrels. Makes you wonder if the brain dead hordes that vote for them are able to feed themselves? They’d starve to death without the “FREE” food from the “GOVMINT”.

  39. Robert Smith says:

    Some one should hold all those democrats head under water .. they would deserve it . And keep those idiots there ..

  40. GHW says:

    You should proof read your Pulse Poll before posting. Spelling check. Plus, you’re asking two questions using the ‘or’ which cannot be answered with a ‘yes’ or ‘no’. Yes, she’s a liability. No, she’s not an asset.

  41. Pauline says:

    She is not naive, she is just a stupid sheep & follows the muslim effort to destroy America. She needs to be deported. America needs to wake up & relize the muslims have had the agenda to take over America since obama. They do not want to become Americans, their goal is to destroy us.

  42. Tim Neal says:

    There was no way to answer this question in any manner. Next time say is she a liability to the Democratic Party and I would say YES. Or say is she an asset to the Democratic Party and then I would say NO.

  43. HARRY says:

    NOBODY IS THAT DUMB WITHOUT TRYING!

    • Zee says:

      Trump is! He always thinks he is a “stable genius,” despite all the evidence to the contrary.

      • Randy Smithr says:

        I am a small business owner and middle income class American. I work hard, I take good care of my loyal employees. I can back up the very, yes very genius things that Trump has done to help American businesses and workers with hard cold facts and figures. No speculation here Zee. Take your evidence to the contrary to the dump!!

  44. Mark says:

    Alexandria Ocasio Cortez is so stupid she looks stupid even for Washington Standards. A gaff every time someone puts a microphone under her nose or dares to make fun of her stupidity. She will,”pay for Medicare for all” by “shifting $21 Trillion away from the Pentagon. Or 2/3s of that cost. One big problem there AOC—the Pentagon has never had that much to spend in the history of the United States. Earth to AOC—have we met?

  45. Bill says:

    She is a total moron.

    • Jack Gajda says:

      She absolutely is, Bill…

    • Ric B says:

      But she is still smarter than Sarah Palin or Trump. Trump works hard at being ignorant, because he won’t read and he does not listen to advisers – – – he thinks THEY are dumb and lazy because they won’t do the stupid stuff that is illegal.

  46. jemb says:

    Stupid question – requires two answers… asset..NO liability…YES Hopefully the Democrats have a little time to educate her. Oh, wait, correction – there is no hope for her. However, maybe they can hide her and tape her mouth for the next 6 years. Or, maybe she’ll get bored and just resign.

  47. Pepito Avila says:

    This clown congresswoman did not even graduated from high school maybe.

    • Carolina says:

      She apparently graduated from college…probably pa degree in basket weaving, Tran
      Sgender ronouns or Mudpoe making…no chemistry, calculus or statistics

  48. mrp says:

    She is nothing but a puppet , always was and always will be because she totally lacks any intelligence. This puppet has its strings pulled by whoever is backing this idiot. When she speaks off the cuff, she displays her stupidity to the highest degree.

    • Jack Gajda says:

      mrp, that’s both funny and a little scary because, we don’t know who her puppet master is or how high up that person or group is???

  49. Byron says:

    I agree with all the comments, but I very much dislike Patriot Pulse putting these flaming titles on their articles. This did not ” backfire in the worst way”. Its just sensationalism in the worst way and firesale journalism, not much different than CNN. Please just PRINT THE NEWS and lets us decide what it did. STOP THE SENSATIONAL TITLES JUST TO GET A VIEW>

  50. Harold K Wiebusch says:

    As an asset of the Democratic Party she just keeps on giving and helping the rest of us. So AOC keep it up

    • luglor72 says:

      For sure she is not an asset to the Democrats and is a big liability for them as well as to this country. Why did they vote for this nutcase? We will be the laughing stock of the world if they find out more about this woman. Lord help us!!

  51. John Hickman says:

    You dont know how to type your question. With her being elect show that as dumb as I am I could run an get elected

  52. Navy PO2 says:

    Shes dumber than dirt!

  53. Dan Gibson says:

    AOC is quickly moving up the list of Democratic Female Morons … PELOSI, FEINSTEIN, WARREN, WATERS, and that nimnul Hawaiian Senator — and who can forget the bombastic Girl Without a Legitimate Cause, HARRIS ?!?!? Her growing portfolio of bug eyed, wide mouthed, horse teethed photos provides indisputable evidence that Alexandria is a runaway train ready to go over the Cliff !

    Also — what’s up with your POLL? The wording makes it IMPOSSIBLE to VOTE … !

  54. Dave S says:

    jy is right; it isn’t a yes or no question. However, I very much enjoy watching her make a complete moron of herself every time she moves her mouth (or tweets). It just goes to show you what an economics degree from Boston U is worth.

  55. JEANETTE FOSSUM says:

    whator who in heaven’s name elected this idiot? thought New Yorker’s had more sense, guess Not!

  56. Sfengr says:

    Pls reread your damn question…it doesn;t make sense to have both pro/con as a yes/no…bad as the dems !!

  57. Cathylovesyou says:

    Alexandra Ocasio Cortez = Moron
    If she kept her mouth shut we would never no just how dumb she really is. She at least went to school, was taught but never learned. She will always get elected in her district because they all vote by color. So my advise, show your skin and don’t talk in public.

    • T says:

      It is “advice” not advise. Yes, I agree, at least she went to school, got a legitimate degree, unlike many of the ones who post to this website, never went beyond high school and pretend they know everything. She is a wonderful bonus for Trumpers, because they get to vilify some one, which you love. The ironic thing is that she is smarter than Trump, who does not read, and then when his people try to tell Trump that the way he wants things done is illegal or against a treaty or considered inhumane, but Trump never listens.

      • Randy Smithr says:

        OK T, the real irony is when you say Ocasio Cortez is smarter that Trump. Have you ever listened to her speak? Have you ever read anything she says or speaks about? Anyone, anyone with minimal education can tell she has the brains of an oyster. You obviously don’t have much intellectually or you would have figured out the first time she went to the podium.

      • William Bohannon says:

        And you know thi, HOW?
        And by the way, I would be willing to bet that President Trumps IQ is at least 2 times higher, possibly three times higher than yours.
        Crawl back under your rock with the rest of your Democrats idiots. in

  58. Dave Miedema says:

    I can’t say for sure who’s more stupid: the Democrat Flavor of the Month herself; the nimrods who voted for her, or the Democrat officeholders who blindly support her due to her party affiliation?

  59. jy says:

    That not a question that can be answered Yes or No. Try again. She an idiot that knows little to nothing about how our government works. NYC deserves her.
