Perhaps she should have taken a longer break from Twitter. Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) attacked the Republican Party over a photo of an older male posing with a life size cardboard cut-out of her. Ocasio-Cortez had NO IDEA the man in the photo is fellow Democrat Rep. John Yarmuth of Kentucky.
Yarmuth, serving his seventh term, is the Chairman of the House Budget Committee.
UPDATE: AOC deleted the tweet after merciless mockery.
Tweet by the Kentucky GOP that AOC self-owned:
#ThrowbackThursday last month the socialists threatened the lone #Kentucky #Democrat in Congress if he didn't bend to their radical, extremist will: https://t.co/MdS3un7IIY looks like @AOC and #socialism are calling the shots for @KyDems now! pic.twitter.com/VIe6JWZZQy

MRCTV’s Brittany Hughes: The stupid. It Burns.
You mean that white Democrat in the photo?
Seriously, the stupid. It burns.
