AOC Brushes Off Republican Congressman Over Patriots Jab

Yesterday’s Super Bowl may have been boring as Hades but if you want to watch an outstanding performer at the peak of her powers you don’t have to look any further than the Twitter feed of Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

In the latest example of her social media athleticism AOC dodged a tackle from her fellow freshman Congressman Dan Crenshaw (the guy who went on SNL) in which Crenshaw attempted to make a bone-headed analogy comparing Ocasio-Cortez’s tax proposals to limiting competition in the NFL…or something.

First Crenshaw’s blitz attempt:

Then the touchdown:

The analogy doesn’t make any sense and Ocasio-Cortez refused to engage with its flawed logic, instead pointing out that her proposals for taxing the super rich target such astronomically high-earners that they wouldn’t even affect most of the millionaire players on the field.

Furthermore she closed with a missile of her own, highlighting the fact that the NFL owners who blacklisted Colin Kaepernick for kneeling to protest police brutality and profiling are the only ones in the NFL who should be sweating if her policy proposals become reality.

Ocasio-Cortez wasn’t alone in dunking on the hapless Crenshaw. It was a team effort.

Compared to the Super Bowl that was entertaining as hell.
