After former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee mocked Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez about a Daily Mail article where she likened her surprising win to the moon landing, Ocasio-Cortez is firing back in a sharp tweet directed pointedly at Mr. Huckabee’s daughter, current White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
In the tweeted reply, Ocasio-Cortez instructs Huckabee to “leave the false statements” to his daughter.
Ocasio-Cortez, now the youngest woman elected to Congress, ran on a Democratic socialist platform and unseated 10-term incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley, the number 4 Democrat in the House who was expected to become Speaker one day.
Her successful campaign and eventual win came as a surprise to many, but has garnered her tremendous respect and admiration.
Ocasio-Cortez proved with this tweet that she’s prepared to defend the platform on which she ran which included, among many other things, the hot button issues of universal healthcare, housing as a human right, and a gun control/assault weapons ban.
