Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) humiliated herself on Twitter Thursday when she shared a photo that she thought demonstrated why Republicans are “sexist.”
Using a popular meme format, AOC suggested the GOP was sexist for posing its “older male members next to cardboard cutouts of young female legislators.”
The only problem?
The lawmaker in the photograph she shared is actually Democrat Rep. John Yarmuth of Kentucky.
Now that is embarrassing.
It didn’t take long for AOC to delete the tweet completely and hope the internet just forgets it. Unfortunately for her, the internet never forgets.
This is only the latest gaffe for AOC, who has earned a reputation as one of the least-informed members of Congress. She was recently asked to name three reasons why President Donald Trump should be impeached, and her answer was hysterical.
“I think number one is emoluments,” she said. “I think it’s always been about that for me.”
She then claimed "tax fraud" would be her second reason, even though there is no evidence to show Trump has committed tax fraud.
"And number three… um, man. I mean… if there’s an investigation on this, I think this is pretty potent as well."
And they say she is the future of the Democratic Party!
