Some people have been slow to realize that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is full of dynamite and will have a comeback for anything thrown at her, especially in the Twitter world.
On Tuesday, The Daily Beast tweeted Fox host Tucker Carlson’s thoughts about Ocasio-Cortez who said:
‘(She) is a moron and nasty and more self-righteous than any televangelist who ever preached a sermon on cable access. She’s not impressive, she’s awful.’
However, Ocasio-Cortez as usual quickly came back with a simple, but brilliant response:
‘You mad Bro?’
Here’s what Twitter had to say:
According to CNN, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez “is the new Republican bogeyman (or bogeywoman) of choice.”
Chris Cillizza for CNN writes:
‘In politics, a bogeyman is used to scare people too. To scare them into giving money, to turn out and vote, to stay involved in the political process — for fear that, if they don’t, the bogeyman (or woman) will seize power and make their lives miserable.
‘Republicans have used a number of Democratic bogeymen over the years, from Massachusetts Sen. Ted Kennedy to Bill and Hillary Clinton to Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi. The key for a successful Democratic bogeyman is that (a) the person is well-known to the GOP base and (b) the person makes Republicans angry or scared or ideally both.’
Although Ocasio-Cortez is just a freshman, she has rapidly become one of the most prominent members of Congress of either party. She is not going away anytime soon and she has already proven that she is there to shake things up.
