Ocasio-Cortez Fires Back After GOP QAnon Candidate Attacks Her Intellect On Twitter

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) hit back at Georgia House candidate Marjorie Taylor Greene on Monday after the Republican mockingly attacked the New York Democrat’s intellect on Twitter.

Greene, who has openly promoted the baseless QAnon conspiracy theory, had tweeted that “as a blonde woman” she would like to “thank” the freshman lawmaker because “she has single handily put an end to all ‘dumb blonde’ jokes.”

“As a blonde woman, I would like to take a moment to thank Congresswoman @AOC. She has single handily put an end to all “dumb blonde” jokes,” Taylor tweeted. “Blondes everywhere appreciate your service and your sacrifice!”

Ocasio-Cortez responded by correcting Greene’s spelling in her tweet hitting back, wishing the Georgia hopeful luck when she’s “writing legislation.”

“Don’t worry Mrs. Greene, I completely understand why you need to swing + miss at my intellect to make yourself feel better. You seem to have some trouble spelling your own insults correctly. Next time try “single-handedly,” it’ll work better,” AOC wrote. “Good luck writing legislation!”

Greene won the Republican nomination for Georgia’s 14th Congressional District last month, sparking controversy because of her public support for the baseless QAnon conspiracy theory, which posits that President Trump and his allies are working together to expose and arrest an underground cabal of global elite who control the government and run child sex trafficking rings.

Greene will be running unopposed after the long-shot Democratic candidate in the race, Kevin Van Ausdal, ended his campaign becasue he is leaving the state.
