Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has Republicans straight-up freaking out. They have no idea how to deal with an inspiring, young, telegenic Latinx woman who’s more concerned with policy that helps the working class than burnishing her image with the donor class. They’ve been throwing everything they possibly can at her, and she either shrugs off their disingenuous attacks or hits them back harder.
The latest victim of AOC Derangement Syndrome is attorney Matt Rooney who got absolutely ratio’d on Twitter for criticizing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for taking a breather—AT CHRISTMAS—before she’s even been sworn in.
Already taking a break. Hasn't started working yet. https://t.co/UpT5KDOR45— Matt Rooney (@MattRooneyNJ) December 18, 2018
Plenty of people living in socialist countries WISH they had a job from which they could take a break. The arrogance and ignorance of this Congresswoman-elect is stunning: https://t.co/dhdgq826dn— Matt Rooney (@MattRooneyNJ) December 18, 2018
Oh Matt, you poor reactionary moron! I guess it helps that he’s completely unserious in his attacks on her. I mean, I doubt he’d be so eager to attack, say, a president who spends the bulk of his time watching TV and golfing, but maybe I’m wrong! (I’m not wrong)
Blessedly, AOC’s defenders on Twitter ethered him for his weird insistence that she should be working when she… hasn’t been sworn in.
Matt, I've reviewed your Twitter feed and impressive number of ratioed tweets and maybe you should take a break too. A really long one. https://t.co/trKScxqJLv— Justin S. (@JustinTweets4) December 19, 2018
We are gonna have to develop a specific term for these random-ass know-nothing white dudes who literally cannot stop themselves from trying to dunk on AOC and get ratioed like this https://t.co/qSQpeeuw27— Jason Bailey (@jasondashbailey) December 18, 2018
it’s been incredible watching the right bend over backwards to try to vilify someone who *hasn’t started working yet* https://t.co/xGGoPblkcw— Chris Bartley (@phishb13) December 18, 2018

Taking time off during the holidays. https://t.co/Srlh63FWms
Lol, dude, you're a divorce lawyer & part time blogger from Jersey. Your job literally is to help divide people, while hers is to unite. Have several seats. https://t.co/5mxfa5VZDh— Miggy Smalls (@MoreMiggs) December 18, 2018
It's amazing how far under people's skin AO-C has gotten before serving her first day in office, reminiscent of Obama https://t.co/bvkectK1FW— Josh Cohen (@JLaurenceCohen) December 19, 2018
Uh, it's called Christmas. Aren't you all the idiots claiming there's a "war on Christmas" but don't approve of this woman taking a few days off to celebrate it ??? https://t.co/rR20HO73cN— ☆sKy (@___ItsJustMe) December 18, 2018
Also, it’s just wildly sexist to criticize Ocasio-Cortez for referring to her breather as “self-care.” When the rest of these creaky octogenarians zip off to Pebble Beach in lobbyist-funded private jets to schmooze with donors, that’s worse than self-care—that’s corruption, buddy.
This is why so many of us, women in particular, burn out. We are criticized when we even mention time off by people like this. I'm reminded of when I took time out at my father's death and my boss at the time guilt tripped me and questioned my motivation. Stop self care shaming. https://t.co/eFATbGy5tB— Leah (@LGTrombatore) December 18, 2018
The irony of trying to shame someone for taking a break by quoting a tweet where they point out people will shame them for taking a break... https://t.co/YkuitOy1LS— Brian Langloss (@B_Langloss) December 18, 2018
Like your loser president spends 50% of the time pretending to play golf? https://t.co/QtT2NXXgtk— Ethical Guru (@Sourcing_Guru) December 19, 2018
Your opinion on Trumps golfing? Reduced office hours? https://t.co/L40AiDxfKb— Kris Biel (@Krisbi312) December 18, 2018
Feliz Navidad to Rep. Ocasio-Cortez, and a big lump of coal for this jerk.
