In case you missed it, Donald Trump Jr. recently took a swipe at Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over socialism:
Not sure how helpful that is, but whatever. The Washington Post leaped to Ocasio-Cortez’s defense, because of course:
Donald Trump Jr. trolls Ocasio-Cortez with meme implying socialists eat dogs https://t.co/DZJg4RYKxN

Not that Ocasio-Cortez needs their help. As she points out to Trump Jr., Congress has subpoena power, and soon enough, she’ll be in a position to take advantage of it:
I have noticed that Junior here has a habit of posting nonsense about me whenever the Mueller investigation heats up.
Please, keep it coming Jr – it’s definitely a “very, very large brain” idea to troll a member of a body that will have subpoena power in a month.
Have fun! https://t.co/oQ6MsdJYCk

Is that a threat? It doesn’t exactly sound like she’s taking the high road, either.
Oh look, making threats about government power is cool again. I can’t keep up. https://t.co/AMxTCrAeRB

"He memed me, so I'll threaten him with a Congressional subpoena" is a bold strike for free speech. https://t.co/6BKc7vBeKN

Guess we’d better stay tuned. It’s gonna be a looooong two years.
A frighteningly honest statement here. Watch what you say about us, especially now that we have power. https://t.co/75NdRgSVbZ
