Trump Jr. just childishly attacked Ocasio-Cortez on Instagram and then she nuked him on Twitter

The conservative plutocracy and its cryptofascist propaganda machine are terrified of Democratic Representative-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She’s become a lightning rod for bad faith Republican attacks and criticisms and increasingly an obsession of the Trump dead-enders at Fox News. Every time they attack her, they expose their own rotten agenda.


They’re terrified of her youth, her courage, and the fact that she is pushing real ideas and attempting to improve the lives of Americans in substantive ways instead of peddling meaningless culture war buzzwords the way the GOP does. Her ascendancy continues to show how devoid of new ideas the Republican Party really is.

The latest fool to take a shot at the leftist queen was Donald Trump Jr., who took to Instagram to share a poorly made and aggressively unfunny meme about her.

“Why are you so afraid of a socialist economy?” the image has Ocasio-Cortez ask, putting words in her mouth.

“Because Americans want to walk their dogs, not eat them,” the President Trump photo responds.

In addition to how pathetic the attempt at humor is, it’s misleading, a fact which is hardly surprising given the Trump family’s adversarial relationship with the truth. Ocasio-Cortez identifies as a Democratic Socialist and as such has called for social programs to help struggling Americans afford healthcare and other basic necessities that they have long been denied.

Equating these reasonable policy suggestions with a fully socialist economy is absurd, and shows that Trump Jr. is afraid of honestly grappling with her ideas.

It didn’t take long for Ocasio-Cortez to hit back with her trademark wit. She pointed out that “Junior here” seems to always ramp up his nonsensical attacks on her whenever Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation starts to dominate the news cycle. It’s a kneejerk attempt on his part to distract from his father’s growing legal problems.

AOC also told Trump Jr. to “keep it coming,” before mocking him by pointing out how idiotic it is for him to attack a member of Congress given that the House will soon be under Democratic control with the power to subpoena the entire Trump administration. She poked fun at President Trump in the process by referencing his inane quote about having a “very, very large brain.”

She signed off with a simple, ominous “Have fun!” 

Once again, Ocasio-Cortez has demonstrated her ability to talk circles around her critics.
