We hate to break this to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, but she probably should have read the article from Raw Story before she used it to talk all big and bad about herself being a bull in a china shop.
I’m fine being called a bull in a china shop, because politics that answers to special interests more than the American people *should* be disrupted.
Also, the idea that the same folks who bow to Trump are clutching their pearls is laughable.
Good. That’s how they should feel. https://t.co/6obfnT7fvf

The article says nothing about anyone clutching their pearls or that she specifically is like a bull in a china shop.
From Raw Story:
Fox Business Network personality Charles Payne, who was filling in during the holiday, was concerned that Democrats would provide oversight of President Donald Trump.
“You’ve got these older, established Democrats who’ve seen what’s happened in the past, they know it’s a risky political move,” he argued.
“Whereas the upstarts, the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s of the world, maybe they just don’t know, they’re like bulls in a china shop, they just want to create havoc,” Payne suggested.
Notice they didn’t actually say Alexandria herself, they said ‘upstarts’ like her.
THIS is why we drag Alexandria, folks. It’s not her clothes or her style or even how ridiculous her tweets can be (and TRUST US, they are ridiculous), but it’s the idea that anyone is afraid of her or that she’s somehow more powerful than she is. We’d just like her to know what the heck she’s talking about before pretending she’s an expert.
Millennials. *eye roll*
And maybe she should take a look at her thread because it’s not ‘Trump supporters’ who are actually clutching any pearls, it’s Democrats who are concerned she will destroy their party with her divisive blathering.
May I make a suggestion? Try not to get caught up in whatever @FoxNews or anyone else says about you…just ignore the drama & focus on your goals in Congress!

But that’s so boring!
Just do not jeopardise Democratic Party unity in the House! It is too important right now that we are all together. Later next year, you can start demanding changes. Right now, we have to have UNITY in the HOUSE!

Ma’am, before you start breaking the china, which may be ok, take a moment and make sure the 2nd and 3rd order effect don’t cause more harm. Now I’m a GA Dem, so my comment is just advice. Remember to surround yourself with some talented folks who know the system, they can help.

I like you and I like what you stand for but I do not like the fact that you don't want Nancy Pelosi to be the house majority speaker you are wrong she's the only one with the backbone and the spirit and the knowledge keyword knowledge to fight Donald Trump

Maybe you should take the time to learn your job so that you would be on more solid ground with your media mistakes. You are currently trying to protect your ignorance. At some point people will stop listening to you. Learn your job. Come from strength not weakness.

Or maybe just, ‘talk less, smile more’ until she figures out what the Hell she’s talking about?
