Rep. Dan Crenshaw gave an awesome response to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet about her working-class background.
Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Thursday that Republican Senators “sit around on leather chairs all day,” while she had to work a “physically difficult working class job” prior to taking office.
“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 tweeted.
She then continued, “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. I bring that work ethic to Congress & to my community. They sit around on leather chairs all day.“
Rep. Crenshaw joined in, jokingly responded that “one of the hardest decisions” he ever had to make while serving in Afghanistan was “still or sparkling?”
Later on, Rep. Crenshaw further zapped at Ocasio-Cortez at a rally for Republican Georgia Sen. David Perdue.
The Democrats completely lost their mind over this.
Houston Mayor tweeted, “Dan Crenshaw, my wife waited tables for years before she started her own business. My son waited tables while in school. Many who are still COVID-unemployed were restaurant workers. Mocking the honest work of those who are trying to put food on their own tables is shameful.”
Even Ocasio-Cortez joined in, “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?”
What are your thoughts on this?
