Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is powerful AF, you guys. Apparently her image alone is enough to send chills down the spines of Very Important Men in expensive suits who hang out in hotel bars. At least according to a blue-checked fan named Nicole Sanchez.
Sanchez describes herself as a “Lecturer at UC Berkeley Haas School of Business. CEO and Founder of Vaya Consulting. Purveyor of fine race/class analysis.” This analysis is about as fine as it gets:
Tonight I was in a hotel bar in Midtown when you came on TV. Very Important Men in expensive suits spoke in hushed tones and contorted their faces into various forms of “worried” as they watched.
I freshened my red lipstick and carried on. It was glorious.

Sounds made up

Well anyway, if Nicole was trying to get AOC’s attention, mission accomplished. AOC climbed down from her ivory tower to let Nicole kiss her ring — and turn Nicole’s fake news into an opportunity to bash corporate America:
If you’re a guy in a $ suit that feels some type of way when you see me on TV, maybe you’re limiting yourself to thinking working people’s gain must come at your loss.
After all, mega corps have gained at the cost of working people for so long, many can’t think of any other way. https://t.co/2JBvAyhhA5

You know, for someone who hates it when people “obsess” over her, AOC sure does have a knack for milking that supposed obsession for all it’s worth. The fact that Sanchez is most likely full of sh*t doesn’t really matter, as AOC is so full of it herself.
This almost assuredly didn't happen. Anytime I've seen you pop up on the TV it results in snickering, pointing, and laughing.

I love AOC but I’m honestly embarrassed she liked this and forced it on my timeline.

At least @SmarkHenry is intellectually honest enough to admit that AOC is intellectually dishonest. AOC wants to be a working-class hero and a victim at the same time. If her poll numbers are anything to go by, that schtick’s not working nearly as well as it used to. But hey, at least she’ll always have Ed Krassenstein:
Powerful corporate men are scared of AOC because AOC represents power coming back to working class Americans — power being taken away from corporate America.

Ain’t that sweet.
