We know this’ll come as a huge shock to you, but Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is whining again. So, what’s got her panties in a twist this time? This story about her mom:

Apparently that’s just beyond the pale:
You know, when I got to DC I was told that it’s considered “off-limits” to report on a member’s family, love life, etc.
Unsure why that consideration is suspended for me.
(Also for those who ask how I learned to handle pressure,try being the only daughter in a Latino household) https://t.co/M2lgHITz1B

Got that, vultures? AOC is literally the only politician in the history of ever whose personal life has been under the microscope. But at least she can handle the pressure. She proves it every day with tweets like that.
Some blue checks wanna call out Socialist Bae for bullcrapping about how politician love lives and family members are off-limits except for hers, or nah?

Don’t hold your breath. They’ll only call her out for being too awesome and stunning and brave.
You have a great family and partner and you are super smart and popular are kicking ass and your haters are terrified.

But that’s OK, because plenty of others are willing to do it.
Yeah. off limits. Never happens to the President and his family. What a hyporcrite.

Then why have I heard about times when the president didn't use condoms https://t.co/kYp9MmwhhV

Because Jenna & Barbara Bush were treated so well! https://t.co/INjZsi7D6h

Rubio's wife's speeding tickets. Romney's wife's horses. It goes on and on. https://t.co/Xv76bHPGaM

And inquiring minds wanna know: Who, exactly, told AOC — a public figure who relishes the spotlight — that no one would ever ask questions about her personal life?
Off limits? Did you ever follow politics before you ran for office? It doesn’t take other people’s money to pay attention. You should try it
— James Kamm (@JamesKamm) March 5, 2019
Because you’re lying. No one told you that.
— Adam Trahan (@AdamTrahan) March 5, 2019
Lol who told you that? When has that EVER been the case?
— EtQBrute? (@GetBenThompson) March 5, 2019
More lies from @AOC, no one told her this.
The media has attacked every member of the Trump family all the way down to the way 11-year-old Barron Trump dresses.
And reporting on a politician's "love life" is off-limits?
Are you high?
That gets reported on all the time. https://t.co/9TgRX5g0h9

A politician in 2019 who wasn't aware that the media is interested in the personal lives of elected officials? pic.twitter.com/kvLxcEuLhZ

If she honestly didn’t know that that people would be interested in her family, love life, etc., then she’s actually even stupider than we thought.
Who told you this? Did it involve a time machine?
You are not special. You are not unique. You are being treated the same as any immature, overblown, ignorant loudmouth celebrity wannabe with serious campaign finance issues. https://t.co/yIkyDqZVb1

Editor’s note: This post has been updated with additional tweets.
It’s worth noting that AOC’s mom welcomed the media into her home:
AOC you're being NUTS! That interview with your mom was so flattering and humanizing. Also, it was obviously a voluntary interview your mom did, in her home, where she provided pictures of you!
Was she bamboozled? WTF man?! pic.twitter.com/DKtK5UBHkO
— Boomieleaks (@notwokieleaks) March 5, 2019
Call me crazy @AOC, but maybe the problem is less about the media talking about your personal life and more about your mother inviting the media into her home to talk about your personal life. pic.twitter.com/TGIUJ5DJMw
— Kate Hyde (@KateHydeNY) March 5, 2019
Serious question: is there some question as to whether or not @AOC's mom was tricked into this interview? Because if not, then perhaps this tweet should have an audience of one. https://t.co/ZzXHSVLh4z
— Jeryl Bier (@JerylBier) March 5, 2019
Maybe AOC should have a chat with her mom about this.
