Ocasio-Cortez Threatens Trump, Jr. For Trolling Her On Twitter

Ocasio-Cortez Threatens Trump, Jr. For Trolling Her On Twitter

"I have noticed that Junior here has a habit of posting nonsense about me whenever the Mueller investigation heats up", she mocked.

Congressional representative-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has called on her fellow lawmakers to follow her lead and increase the wages of their staff in Washington, D.C.

Don Jr. posted a meme on his Instagram account that shows Ocasio-Cortez asking his father, "Why are you so afraid of a socialist economy?"

'Congress as a body, GOP included, has the power.

"It's amusing cuz it's true!" captioned the president's most clever son, along with a few laughing-face and American flag emojis.

Critics of Ocasio-Cortez's tweet - like Trump Jr.'s girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle - jumped on her for making what they characterized as a threat of punitive government action in response to criticism. No indiv. member can issue a subpoena unless they are a Chair (which, as a freshman, I can assure you I will not be).

Don Jr. posted the meme because he thought it was 'funny cuz it's true!' "Also must be under purview", she said.

Ocasio-Cortez may have walked back her remarks to avoid an ethics complaint early in her tenure.

The meme that Trump Jr. "As a lawyer and former prosecutor I find this deeply troubling".

The right has been attacking Ocasio-Cortez for months - even before her historic win in the Democratic primary, when she unseated longterm U.S. Rep. Joe Crowley to become the youngest woman who will serve in Congress.

Trump Jr. reportedly has told his friends he expects an indictment from Mueller, who is investigating Russian interference and possible collusion with the Trump campaign in the 2016 presidential election.
