We swear we’ll burn out on posts about Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez someday, but it’s astounding how a member of Congress cannot handle criticism from any direction. She really is the female Donald Trump and doesn’t know it.
Who’s victimizing her now? Why it’s RealClearScience, which is questioning her knowledge of where prescription drugs come from.
.@AOC: " Right now, your knowledge of where drugs come from appears to be seriously inadequate. To be fair, you’re definitely not alone in that, but there’s no reason not to learn more.” By @Dereklowe https://t.co/GZLPFgDpxU pic.twitter.com/Zcg9DX8V8D

“There’s no reason not to learn more” … or, you could just play the victim again. It’s all because you’re a strong woman and people can’t handle it.
This is what being a woman in politics looks like:
Disagreements aren’t labeled as differing opinions. They’re labeled as one’s knowledge being ‘inadequate.’
As a reminder, I’m not the one who testified about Big Pharma under oath to Congress.
It was an expert witness. https://t.co/hgpFoZsgWY

When people tell you that Millenials really cannot handle criticism very well – no matter how mild or well-intentioned – this is what they’re talking about.
Not everything wrong in your life is due to some nefarious “-ism” https://t.co/XpECNEYfsH

It’s more than your knowledge of where drugs come from that’s inadequate.. step down now while some of your dignity is still intact.. you are seriously embarrassing yourself

And you complain about DT calling out the unfairness of news. ? @AOC supports DTs opinion of journalism. ?

Hasn’t everyone told you that you don’t know enough? Why does being a woman have anything to do with it?

Not a woman in politics sweetie, a fruit loop in politics.

Correction. This is what being a stupid human in politics looks like.

Expert? Like your expertise at economics? #LoonyLeft

You were elected by 13% of the electorate that even bothered to vote, yet you strut around, free of any gravitas, like someone who actually has earned and deserves so much attention. Check that ego. pic.twitter.com/BeBQLINRD3

The funny thing is- facts don’t care about your gender. As a sitting congresswoman, and a graduate of a well respected college, you should be at least aware of the difference between opinions and facts.

In your case, this is what being an uninformed airhead in Congress looks like.
You are totally clueless and you've demonstrated your cluelessness time and time again. I have to wonder about the IQ of anyone who voted for you!

How does being wrong equate to your gender? Good God, your utter ignorance never ceases to appall me.
— ??Liberty⭐⭐⭐ (@17LadyLiberty76) February 5, 2019
Having listened you, I'd say your knowledge of virtually everything is inadequate.
— SkyclimberFarm (@SkyclimberF) February 5, 2019
Actually your being a woman has nothing to do with you being ignorant. Gotta call it like you see it.

You wont get far in politics playing that game

What has being a woman got to do with it? He's right. You should have paid more attention to your studies in college and less to your bar patrons.

Has nothing to do with being a woman

Ignorance comes in all sexes, sizes and colors. As I work at a non profit childrens hospital, I can tell you that you have no idea how innovation works. Go back to school child.

You are a moron. You are an embarrassment on so many levels.

Don’t pull the “woman” card every time you get justly criticized. Men get criticized all the time. Put on your big girl pants and take it

If your gas tank is empty, it's not in disagreement with you. You not believing it is empty doesn't make you a warrior princess or a martyr. Your ability to believe you can run on empty is rather impressive, however, so load up the wagon with the other kids and have a good time.

Did you read the piece? It's my impression that you didn't, failing to respond substantively and instead offering a non-sequitur.

Somebody criticized her.
That cannot stand. It also must be sexist.
— AgainstTrumpDude (@TheAmishDude) February 5, 2019
It's a shtick that I'm certain I'll be growing tired of soon.

Victim, Victim, Victim. Just celebrate your hard work and inspire others to do the same. Trust me, your intelligence should have held you down, but people still voted for you. Move forward already.

There are tons of knowledgeable women in politics. You just aren’t one of them.
— Eddie Zipperer (@EddieZipperer) February 5, 2019
Whenever anyone has a critique, you pull out the “woman “ card, “minority” card, or some card to put down a critic. It would be refreshing at some time to admit your inexperience. Quite frankly, I’d respect you more. That goes for anyone new to the scene.
— Rob Crowe (@JRCGator18) February 5, 2019
No, this is what being an ill-prepared, thin skinned person in politics looks like.

But your knowledge is inadequate. Stop hiding behind charges of sexism or racism or whaterism, just get better at your job
— Bobbie Mitchell (@BobbieMitchell) February 5, 2019
AOC: I waffle on whether or not I like you because of stuff like this. I frequently find myself cheering you on, and just as often now, find myself horrified at you buying into your own hype.
You’ve never held a job in drug research. Reading the article, he’s right.
