“Welcome to the Thunder Dome… Debate Me” Barstool Sports Founder Dave Portnoy Drops in on AOC

David Portnoy, the founder of Barstool Sports, also known as “El Presidente” by his followers, dropped in on Communist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Tuesday and challenged her to a debate over unions.

Earlier Tuesday, Portnoy fired off a series of tweets hammering unions and linked to a 2015 blog post where he said if any of his own employees dared to unionize, he would “smash their little union to smithereens.”

Rafi Letzter, a Life and Science writer, challenged Portnoys employees and told them to “DM” him if they want to chat about the unionization process.

Portnoy, who is known for his sarcastic and fiery commentary shot back and threatened to can any employees who DM Letzter — of course his tweet may have been a joke.

But AOC took Portnoy’s tweet seriously and called him out.

Portnoy fired back at AOC and set Twitter ablaze.

“Hey @aoc welcome to thunder dome. Debate me.”

Donald Trump Jr. jumped into the fray.

“When will Alexandria O’CRAZIO Cortez learn not to tangle with our countries Presidents?” Portnoy said in response to Don Jr.

The drama between AOC and Portnoy is still unfolding. Please check back for updates.
