Watching Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez get figurative eggs smashed against her face never gets old, mostly because her “I’m above you” attitude is ripe for being humbled.
Whether or not she is capable of feeling the mental state of humbleness is still up for debate, but that’s another article.
The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra captured a moment where the left’s favorite Democratic Socialist from New York attacked a member of the GOP for posing next to a cardboard cutout of her.
Using the “nobody” meme, Ocasio-Cortez mocked the GOP as if they were saying “Let’s pose our older male members next to cardboard cutouts of young female legislators” in response to a tweet the Kentucky GOP sent out about how radicals are threatening moderate Kentucky Democrats.
As Saavedra pointed out, however, the Republican that AOC was attacking, Rep. John Yarmuth, isn’t a Republican at all. He’s a Democrat.
“AOC doesn’t even know who her Democrat colleagues in Congress are, how embarrassing,” tweeted Saavedra.
It gets worse.
AOC had just got done ragging on the GOP for attacking her ideas because they were “1st grade readers.”
The most hilarious part about this is that just a couple minutes prior she was attacking the “GOP” for “bad-faith attacking” her ideas, claiming that they were like “1st grade readers” pic.twitter.com/9hazi9SliR

Oh, but the embarrassing moments aren’t over yet, dear reader.
As Saavedra pointed out, Ocasio-Cortez had even recently co-sponsored environmental legislation that Yarmuth had proposed.
From McClatchy DC:
Rep. John Yarmuth, the sole Democrat in the Kentucky congressional delegation, is seeking to halt all new mountaintop coal removal mining permits until federal officials investigate potential health effects.
The issue has momentum in a Democratic-led House eager to challenge Trump administration policies. House Natural Resources Committee chairman Reps. Raúl Grijalva, D-Arizona, who is anxious to counter policies he sees as harmful to the environment, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-New York, are backing the legislation.
So let’s recap…
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who believes Republicans are stupid and burns them about having a 1st-grade reading comprehension, insulted a Democrat she had just co-sponsored a bill for because she thought he was a Republican standing next to a cutout of her.
Ocasio-Cortez realized her mistake and quickly deleted the tweet, but the internet is forever as one Twitter user reminded her.

A round of applause, ladies and gentlemen, for the smartest woman in politics.
