Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Drags Tomi Lahren for Dressing as Her for Halloween

Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has responded to Tomi Lahren dressing as her for Halloween. The conservative personality put on an AOC costume in large part to criticize the freshman from New York’s policies, which she has frequently slammed.

Twitter user Brad Walsh pointed out that Lahren made much of AOC having been a bartender – a jibe her conservative opponents have thrown at her since her election.

The fact that so many republicans LOVE to refer to AOC as ‘former bartender’ as an insult is them straight up telling you they hate the working class. If you work in service or retail, republicans think you are a joke, a pity, a costume,” Walsh said.

Ocasio-Cortez responded to Walsh’s tweet by explaining that being a working person, like a bartender, actually makes her better at her job, unlike those who appear to disdain ordinary work.

“I can’t tell you how many members don’t know what it’s like to be uninsured, or have to choose between rent and a prescription. GOP seem to think that being born with a fancy last name is a personal accomplishment,” she said.
