Gee, I wonder if Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will abuse her power once she’s in office.
The young democratic socialist and leftist sweetheart really doesn’t like being trolled. In fact, if you do troll her, she’ll apparently threaten you with government action.
That’s exactly what happened to Donald Trump Jr., whom Ocasio-Cortez is unhappy with after he published a meme to Instagram featuring Ocasio-Cortez asking why people are so afraid of socialism and Trump responding “because Americans want to walk their dogs, not eat them.”
Ocasio-Cortez, being the kind of person who takes herself too seriously, didn’t take Trump Jr.’s strike at her very well, and took to Twitter where she literally threatened to subpoena him.
“I have noticed that Junior here has a habit of posting nonsense about me whenever the Mueller investigation heats up,” tweeted the New York Democrat.
“Please, keep it coming Jr – it’s definitely a “very, very large brain” idea to troll a member of a body that will have subpoena power in a month,” she continued. “Have fun!”

Let’s break this down.
Ocasio-Cortez apparently can’t take being mocked well, and as a result, threatened to come after a citizen from her position of power, and utilize that power to find a way to punish him with the legal system, if not inconvenience him greatly.
Every politician from the left to the right needs to come down on Ocasio-Cortez and let this child know that you don’t utilize the government as your own personal hammer to make sure your enemies don’t speak negatively against you. This is the kind of government that the United States is NOT about. I don’t care who utilized it in the past, it was wrong when they did it too.
Ocasio-Cortez needs to walk it back and apologize for saying something so statist.
