As Bonchie wrote earlier this week, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is back in full force on the Twitter machine and on Instagram live after a puzzling absence.

The results so far have been no less than what we typically expect out of the most narcissistic (and arguably the most hypocritical) Congresswoman in Washington, DC.

Her climate change rant from Tuesday night on Instagram Live was wild enough, but that wasn’t the only thing she talked about during that chat that had people rolling their eyes.

The New York Post reports on how AOC also insinuated that her generation is the true greatest generation ever:

“I think they’re badass,” said Ocasio-Cortez of young people in the clip, a copy of which was tweeted by conservative political voice Caleb Hull. “I think young people are more informed and dynamic than their predecessors.

“I think they’re profoundly courageous, because they’re willing to puncture more taboos and have conversations that, frankly, older generations sometimes struggle to have,” said AOC.

“I think this new generation is very profound and very strong and very brave, because they’re actually willing to go to the streets,” she said. “How ’bout that?

“Previous generations have just assumed that [the] government’s got it,” she said, leaning into the camera and cupping her hands to her mouth.
