Smarmy Jerk Attacks Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez For Taking A Vacation And Gets Savaged

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.

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.

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.

Feliz Navidad to Rep. Ocasio-Cortez, and a big lump of coal for this jerk.
