Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was shredded this week after suggesting that she is a harder worker than the Republicans. She said that Republicans just “sit around on leather chairs all day.”
“The thing that these conservative Senators don’t seem to understand is that I’ve actually had a physically difficult working-class job without good healthcare most of my adult life,” Ocasio-Cortez claimed on Twitter. “I bring that work ethic to Congress & to my community. They sit around on leather chairs all day.”
“Republicans like to make fun of the fact that I used to be a waitress, but we all know if they ever had to do a double they’d be the ones found crying in the walk-in fridge halfway through their first shift bc someone yelled at them for bringing seltzer when they wanted sparkling,” she added.
However, the Republicans couldn’t stay quiet on this. They immediately went after Ocasio-Cortez.
“Listen sweetie, you know how many of us waitressed through high school to save up for college? Then waitressed and blue-collared throughout to get our degrees? You know how many hard working, selfless American workers cont to do so?” – Sarah Palin tweeted.
Matthew Betley tweeted, “Wrong. We make fun of a lot of things, but not that. I was a server several times in my life. It’s a hard job, and you can take a lot of abuse… which should’ve prepared you for politics.”
Another person tweeted, “I’ve been working since I was 14. I’ve worked tons of doubles and never found myself sobbing on the job like a petulant toddler. This is why people make fun of you. Because you ARE an idiot, not because you WERE a waitress.”
