Candace Owens, a conservative commentator and a huge supporter of President Donald Trump, ripped Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Sunday, calling her a “spoiled rotten brat,” after she claimed Republicans mocked her former job as waitress
AOC first wrote on Twitter:
“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 because someone yelled at them for bringing seltzer when they wanted sparkling.”
Rep. Dan Crenshaw immediately stepped up and called her out: “These people are nuts.”
“It’s not just Chuck Schumer; Chuck Schumer is controlled by people like AOC, who believes that the biggest hardship in life was figuring out whether it was still or sparkling, and you don’t know hardship until you’ve cried in the back.
“I was thinking, I was like, jeez, I am so glad I did not have to do that in my former career.
“That was my biggest problem in the mountains of Afghanistan was — do we offer them still or sparkling, and what if they don’t like it? Rough out there, man.
“That’s Congress these days. We cannot give these people control.”
AOC then hit back at the Texas Republican:
“The GOP acts like they care, but behind closed doors, this is what they actually say about the working class.”
“Good to know how little you truly think of food workers, @DanCrenshawTX. I wonder: did you have catering while bonding w/ wealthy donors over your disdain for the poor?”
Owens, who also worked as a waitress in the initial days of her career, posted a tweet taking aim at Ocasio-Cortez that read,
“I used to be a waitress and I worked multiple doubles. I am laughing out loud at how much of a coastal elitist you have to be to view that as the definition of a hard day at work. Please get on a plane and see the rest of the world (or country) you spoiled rotten brat.”
She went on to say, “And then he sent his French fries back THREE times! Republicans could NEVER handle that”.
However, when another Twitter user questioned her by asking, “Wait, are you now putting down the hard working service people across this country? I’d love to see you work a year in their shoes. Unbelievable. Especially at a point in time when all their jobs are on the line. Eek.” She fired back:
“LMAO. I did work YEARS in their shoes. I waitressed since I was 17. I’m speaking from experience. It’s long work, it’s tiring work, it’s respectable work— but it’s privileged work compared to what most others endure across this country and in the world.”
