By now everybody knows about Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her “Tax the Rich” dress at the Met Gala which spoke volumes (just not in the way she thinks). First of all, AOC was at the Gala joined by the boyfriend of her dress designer, who is heir to the Seagram’s fortune, and the New York congresswoman was later disgusted by the lack of respect for her having “punctured the 4th wall of excess and spectacle” at the event. AOC of course attempted some damage control but there’s just no getting around visuals like this:

LMAO! That speaks unintentional volumes.

Step aside, Eva Peron!

It’s a game and they’re all in it together.

Oh my.

Editor’s note: The opening paragraph has been corrected to point out that the man in attendance with AOC was the boyfriend of her dress designer, not her boyfriend. Apologies for the error.
