Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany has a knack for getting under the skin of Democrats. Today, it was Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez gnashing her teeth over a supposed racial slight that wasn’t actually anything of the such.
You see, calling AOC a Biden advisor is apparently super duper racist.
The @PressSec comment is steeped in a long, hurtful, & horrendous history of stripping women of color of titles and diminishing them to “the help.”
Perhaps she isn’t aware that what she did is mired in racist history. If that is the case, I look forward to her apology tomorrow.

The problem? AOC is actually an advisor to Biden, so it’s a bit odd for her to freak out over, you know, being called an advisor to Biden. To be specific, she’s on his climate change task force. In the context of this conversation, McEnany is alluding to Biden having people on his team that believe in de-funding the police. If AOC doesn’t want to carry that title, she’s welcome to quit.
Regardless, it turns out that not only did AOC have no right to get offended by being called a Biden advisor (because she is one), McEnany had in fact called her a congresswoman literally seconds before.

I think we call that getting “rekt” on the Twitters.
Of course, AOC’s minions still somehow believe she’s right here because they’ll literally believe anything at this point. AOC is either the most vapid person to ever serve in Congress, or she’s the most manipulative. I tend to think she knows exactly what’s she’s doing. Whatever it is, her followers are perhaps the most gullible people I’ve ever witnessed.
Let this be yet another less to Democrats though. Don’t mess with Kayleigh McEnany. She will always bring the receipts.
