Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has only been in Congress just about three months and she’s already made some big waves, not to mention some jaw-dropping proposals and comments. Here’s why Ocasio-Cortez think she gets so much criticism:

“I feel like I predicted it from day one. The idea that a woman can be as powerful as a man is something that our society can’t deal with. But I am as powerful as a man and it drives them crazy.” https://t.co/cqIRXdIHA4

Is that really the reason? Ocasio-Cortez might have herself convinced that’s the case, but not everybody else is:

Nah. My wife's more powerful than I am and I think she's awesome.
I just think you're full of yourself, and your preferred policies, if enacted, would be horrible for the country collectively as well as for the our individual liberties. https://t.co/rreB6in3Uk

Yeah, that’s probably a lot closer to the real reason AOC gets so much opposition and/or mockery on any given day.
Funny, it’s not a problem that plagues any number of strong female politicians who don’t propose batshit crazy socialist nonsense https://t.co/xEvcDnSQY1

Yeah, and it has nothing to do with the fact that you want us to take trains to Hawaii. https://t.co/2eyHTXh5lL

LOL. No, not at all!
What f**king planet does she live on?
Literally, no one cares that she is "as powerful as a man" https://t.co/zCcfi2AT9h

Does AOC realize this statement implies women *AREN'T* as powerful as men? https://t.co/RJ4FCVngmz

Could she get any more self-absorbed? Who wants to be the one to tell her that women have been in Congress for DECADES https://t.co/25yuf2DPke
