Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made a fool out of herself with one giant mistake
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made her political name by her use of social media.
She is constantly looking for fights with conservatives to create viral moments that increase her political clout in the Democrat Party.
But Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just made a fool out of herself with one giant mistake.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez constantly whines that conservatives are “obsessed” with her every time they point out her socialist policies would lead to America’s economic ruin.
And she thought she caught a Republican member of Congress in a trap.
She tweeted out a picture of Kentucky Congressman John Yarmuth standing next to a cardboard cutout of her and tweeted Republicans were a party of racist old white men who harass minority women.
But the tweet instantly blew up in her face.
Yarmuth is a Democrat.
The Daily Caller reports:
Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Thursday attacked a Democratic colleague in the House after apparently mistaking him for a Republican.
Ocasio-Cortez took a shot at Democratic Kentucky Rep. John Yarmuth on Twitter for posing next to a cardboard cutout of herself. She appeared to think Yarmuth — the chairman of the House Budget Committee — is a Republican.
The freshman congresswoman’s swipe at Yarmuth came after the Republican Party of Kentucky tweeted a picture of Yarmuth standing next to the Ocasio-Cortez cutout.
Ocasio-Cortez accused Republicans of posing “older male members next to cardboard cutouts of young female legislators,” seemingly not realizing that Yarmuth is a Democrat.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently announced she was cutting back her social media use to only Monday through Friday.
This massive mistake has some Americans wondering if it should be a permanent retirement.
