Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez Opens A Can Of Whoop-Ass On Don Jr. For Trying To Troll Her

Donald Trump Jr. joined the chorus of Republicans to troll Democratic Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.) even though she hasn’t even been sworn in yet. Junior took to his Instagram account to post a meme featuring his father and Ocasio-Cortez. Under the photo of AOC, the text reads: “Why are you so afraid of a socialist economy?”

The photo beneath hers features Donald Trump along with the text: “Because Americans want to walk their dogs, not eat them.”

Ocasio-Cortez took to her Twitter account then proceeded to take Junior to the woodshed.

“I have noticed that Junior here has a habit of posting nonsense about me whenever the Mueller investigation heats up,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter. “Please, keep it coming Jr — it’s definitely a ‘very, very large brain’ idea to troll a member of a body that will have subpoena power in a month.”

“Have fun!” she added.

Democrats will take the House in January and will indeed have subpoena power. Special counsel Robert Mueller is expected to release a report today in connection with his probe. One of the points that Mueller seems to take issue with Paul Manafort is that he thinks he’s lying about whether the president knew about the infamous Trump Tower meeting. Donald Trump Jr. was at that meeting.

Rep. On Friday, Jackie Speier (D-CA), a member of the House Intelligence Committee, said that she believes Donald Trump Jr. lied to the committee “on at least two occasions.”

Mueller’s report is supposed to be released by 5:00 pm today. Tick tock.
