It's tough being a Congressmember-elect, you know. Or so says Alexandria Ocasio-Complains-A-Lot, who was only elected last week—i.e. she hasn't even started working—yet she is already throwing tantrums about how hard life in Washington D.C. is.
Posing for pictures is such hard work, folks. And the gatherings. It's almost like, I don't know: A job? It just really drains the fun out of Democratic socialism.
She's like the spoiled kid at summer camp who sits in the corner all the time then blames everyone for excluding her. Only it's worse than that: She's accusing them of systemic racism and sexism.
She pouted her way to Twitter the other day to let everyone know:
Dem Spouse + Member luncheon were at the same time today. I was sent to spouse event. - Last night I was stopped bc it was assumed I was an intern/staffer - Next time try believing women + people of color when they talk about their experiences being a woman or person of color.
Yeah. I'm sure there's a plot in Washington D.C. to discriminate against "People of Color" in 2018, two years after our first Black President held office for two terms.
Unsurprisingly, Ocasio-Cortez has also shown us that she wants to enjoy all the power and benefits of being a Representative, but she also wants to play the part of wild-eyed college freshman radical, as seen with her reaction to protestors conducting a sit-in outside Rep. Pelosi's office.
Ocasio-Cortez was a waitress a year ago, now she's one of the 600 most powerful people in the world and she's still complaining.
When called out for siding with activists over her fellow democratic colleagues, she took to Twitter, pointing to the recent news that House Democrats plan on voting "no" for Pelosi's speakership:
When I respectfully join young people in an action promoting climate action while encouraging leadership decisions, it's 'divisive.' Yet when *other* Dems hold the Speaker vote hostage unless conservative concessions are made, it's business as usual.
Here's what it all boils down to: Ocasio-Cortez was a waitress a year ago, now she's one of the 600 most powerful people in the world and she's still complaining. What does she even want?
