Interesting that her behaviour in defending herself is brought into question, without comment on her attackers' behaviours.

Did her "attackers" threaten to use their official government positions to get even for social media "trolling"? She is making a plain and open threat to use the official subpeona powers of congress to retaliate against those that dare mock (troll?) her. That puts the (coming soon?) congressional "witch hunt" mission (tactic?) in plain view for all to ponder.

Will her tweets change the direction of nations?

We're in for a bumpy ride.

You don't think we're already bumping all over the place? Shocks are getting warn out.

My point exactly.

When Trump tweets about a trade deal, the DJIA moves 1000 points up or down.

So far, Ocasio-Cortez is just an amusing chick in over her head.

Not sure if you realize I was originally just saying she's similarly loud and twitchy with her posts. I certainly don't compare the power of a single rep to POTUS.

I completely agree she is just an amusement.

He posted the meme because of her adoration of socialism and she countered it with a threat to use government power against him for tweeting it.

I think the irony is lost on her.

How can she threaten to use a power she does not possess?

If I "threatened" to tie you down with spidey webs that I shoot out from my wrists, exactly how threatened would you feel?

I am getting sick and tired of this little girls antics on Twitter. This irresponsible behavior coming from congresswomen Cortez is getting old. Looking through her twitter feed she also posted something about how climate change is racist... wtf???

The citizens in her district must be so embarrassed. This is a daily occurrence of what crazy thing Alex will say next.

She's a ditz.

That is a good point but she thinks that would be a good use of demorat congressional power. Much of what Trump says that he will do is well beyond his power to do yet the TDS crowd freaks out over it, none the less.

So what? Lots of dems agree, and lots of non-dems also agree.

After all, it is one of their jobs

Take that up with them, but I am pretty sure you do not believe in the childish "but the other kids are doing it, too" excuse

The list is nearly endless on what is lost on her.

Sounds like she has been studying from the Trump playbook.

Ditz or not she is part of a demorat House majority which has a great amount of power to really screw things up.

Screw themselves up; they cannot APPROVE a HALL PASS w/o the Senate, and/or the POTUS.

That is sadly what many of them think - it's our job, as congress critters, to subpoena those who dare to troll us on the internet.

Umm, Junior is going to be investigated for committing crimes, not trolling.

AOC did not threaten to subpeona him. He IS going to be subpeonaed.

She just noted that it is not smart to troll those who are going to be subpeonaing him.

Why on earth you would even care what Alexandr Ocasio-Cortez tweets is beyond comprehension. Why weren't you upset when Trump tweeted and trolled people like HRC, Mueller, Comey, Rex Tillerson, etc and etc? He's the damned PRESIDENT and he behaves like an immature 10 year old punk. Another question; why are you trolling her twitter feed? Are you intentionally looking for something to take issue with? Would you do that if she was a man not a woman? Don't you care that Trump calls people childish names and some names that aren't childish they're just wrong for a man of age, but.....the 'president'! Calling a man with a distinguished career as being 'dumb as a rock' just proves that he has no emotional maturity or stability.

She makes me so mad. It is hard to explain. My blood boils with her entitlement and lack of decorum.

She also referred to Donald Trump Junior as "Junior." She needs to talk to people with respect. She acts like a little kid. Things like this bother me. I have a problem when kids on this forum call me "dude."

Well lets see.. Trump has threatened to sued and pushed lawyers on pretty much anyone that pissed him off.... and that was before and AFTER he was elected as president. While I disagree with what Kathy Griffen did with that picture (even though it is free speech according to right wing rules), the fact that the Trump administration put her on no fly list and later on an interpol watch list so that she was stopped every time she entered a new country.. and that is on top of the usual SS investigations and what not.. well..

And lets not forget, Trump has time and time again threatened people on Twitter or/and called them names... just yesterday he did it. He also stated that someone should have a long prison term and all sorts of threats. So please...

In other words, a bright, young woman filled with enthusiasm and a desire to bring about social change makes your blood boil? That she calls Donald Jr. 'Junior' can't be compared with calling a respected ex CEO of ExxonMobil 'dumb as a rock' or referring to Adam Schiff as Adam 'Schitt'.

I think you just want to dislike her because she's young, ambitious and comes from the streets of the Bronx so she's got that rougher edge to her. But it's just not right to equate calling Don Jr. "Junior" as being anything even close to the horrendous insults 'Juniors' daddy.....the president of the U.S. calls other politicians that respect the office if not the man and never resort to the same low-down dirty name calling Trump is accustomed to doing.

Do yourself a favor and stop trolling her, it will be better for your attitude and blood pressure. I've been called 'dude' many times on this forum and I'm a older woman. I let it go and it doesn't bother me. I don't even take the trouble to correct them, who cares?

Let's be honest. Older people are allowed to act more childish. When you are in your 60s and 70s you are allowed some slack.

I disagree. I am of that generation and I was raised being taught to respect everyone, even my enemies. The Golden Rule, and dignity.
