We were hoping to get through a day without another pose about Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (or “Cortez,” as she likes to be called) but like her nemesis Donald Trump, she just can’t stop tweeting. We’re wondering if she’ll tweet next that President Trump “loves” the Special Olympics since he just announced he’s fully restoring federal funding for it.

In any case, her target today was Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, who said that she loves the Special Olympics — which, as others noted before, is not a federal program and is mostly donor-funded.

There’s so much wrong with this tweet it’s tough to know where to start. So, if you truly “love” teachers, you’ll forgive student loans? And is it wrong to cut federal funding to a program that’s primarily donor-funded when the current national debt is $22 trillion?

But most of all, we’re tired of the very dangerous myth that DeVos has made campus sexual assault victims more vulnerable — by revising Title IX guidance to restore due process, so sexual assault cases are handled by the police and not tried in kangaroo courts set up by the school’s Gender Studies department. (And as an aside, 2020 hopeful Kirsten Gillibrand “loves” campus justice so much she invited rape-hoaxer Emma “Mattress Girl” Sulkowicz as her State of the Union guest.)

And the Senate “loved” it 0-57.
