It ain’t easy being Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She got elected to Congress, which means she is now in charge of you because she’s the boss. Yet people still dare to disagree with her!
Like these guys:
#ThrowbackThursday last month the socialists threatened the lone #Kentucky #Democrat in Congress if he didn’t bend to their radical, extremist will: https://t.co/MdS3un7IIY looks like @AOC and #socialism are calling the shots for @KyDems now! pic.twitter.com/VIe6JWZZQy

If you don’t recognize Rep. John Yarmuth, the Kentucky Democrat pictured here, that’s okay. Neither did AOC, or whoever’s in charge of her Twitter account today.
“GOP: Let’s pose our older male members next to cardboard cutouts of young female legislators,” she tweeted.
Whoops! If you’re going to accuse a political opponent of being a sexist creep, first you should make sure he’s actually a political opponent. That’s the problem with claiming victimhood and blasting away at every perceived slight. Friendly fire.
But hey, Yarmuth has only been in Congress since AOC was in high school. How is she supposed to remember every single member of her own party in the legislative body to which she was elected? She’s busy doing important work, like posing for magazine covers and doing voiceovers for cartoons and assembling IKEA furniture on Instagram Live. What has Yarmuth done, besides, um… chairing the House Budget Committee?
Of course, journalists and other Democrats will let this slide, just like all her other hilarious gaffes. After all:
“There’s a lot of people more concerned about being precisely, factually, and semantically correct than about being morally right,” @AOC says in response to criticism that she’s made factual errors. https://t.co/sKf3sHl9F6 pic.twitter.com/xKc2eB7GEk

P.S. It just keeps getting better.
Even more embarrassing for Ocasio-Cortez, she is a co-sponsor of legislation reintroduced by John Yarmuth earlier this month.https://t.co/lDzGB0yVp6
