The following article, AOC Goes Directly After POTUS with Snarky Twitter Tirade, was first published on Flag And Cross.
While it certainly hasn’t been her intention, freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has provided Americans with a whole lot of entertainment during her first term on Capitol Hill.
The 28 year old bartender-turned-House rep has entered Congress with a fiery, millennial-friendly attitude that “sticks it” to “the man” in all of the most predictable ways.
