A Republican gubernatorial candidate just attacked Ocasio-Cortez. Her response is brilliant

The Trump-supporting Republican candidate for the Governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis, rudely dismissed rising Democratic star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in a condescending and dehumanizing set of remarks during a campaign event in Orange Park, Florida.

“You look at this girl Ocasio-Cortez or whatever she is, I mean, she’s in a totally different universe. It’s basically socialism wrapped in ignorance” said the man who identifies as a “Tea Partier” and has been endorsed by hate groups. 

His comments are the latest in a string of dismissive and vaguely sexist remarks directed at the young Ocasio-Cortez, whose stunning upset victory over former Rep. Joe Crowley in New York’s recent primary immediately reignited the battle between progressive and centrist within the Democratic Party and a fresh round of bad faith red-baiting from the Republican Party.

Ocasio-Cortez wasn’t about to let his rudeness go unchallenged — and immediately fired back with a snarky zinger and a cold dose of reality.

Right-wingers are busy working themselves into a frenzy at the barest mention of the “socialism” word — even if there’s a “democratic” in front of it —  and have been resorting to increasingly despicable attacks and attempts to discredit her.

It’s very satisfying to see her be able to hold her own against what is certainly only the beginning of the deplorable smear campaign she’s inevitably going to have to weather.
