Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) very publicly and egregiously condemned a fellow congressman in her own party for posing with a cardboard cutout of her… mistaking him for a Republican. “GOP: Let’s post our older male members next to cardboard cutouts of young female legislators,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote in the now deleted tweet. Except it was Representative John Yarmuth (D-KY). “Maybe if @AOC spent more time interacting with lawmakers and less time making coloring books, she’d recognize the other socialist Democrats in her caucus,” tweeted the National Republican Congressional Committee.
Here’s more from New York Post…
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez fired off a tweet on Thursday calling out Kentucky Republicans for posting a photo of an older GOP lawmaker posing with a cutout of her — turns out the politician was a Democratic colleague.
“GOP: Let’s post our older male members next to cardboard cutouts of young female legislators,” the freshman Democrat wrote in the now-deleted tweet.
The problem is that the lawmaker in the photo is Rep. John Yarmuth, a Democrat from Kentucky.
The National Republican Congressional Committee, which works to elect Republican members of the House, quickly pointed out the mistake.
