Ocasio-Cortez claps back after Trump Jr. mocks her on social media

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slapped back at Donald Trump Jr. Friday after he mocked her in an Instagram post that suggested the Democratic socialist ideology she espouses would lead to Americans eating their dogs.

The eldest son of President Trump posted the meme Thursday night for his 1.5 million Instagram followers – and Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Friday in response that he was just trying to distract attention from special prosecutor Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian election meddling.

“I have noticed that Junior here has a habit of posting nonsense about me whenever the Mueller investigation heats up,” the congresswoman-elect tweeted as she egged Trump Jr. on.

“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 wrote. “Have fun!”

The meme that Trump Jr. posted shows two photos stitched together — one of Ocasio-Cortez and one of his commander-in-chief dad.

Under the photo of Ocasio-Cortez, text reads: “Why are you so afraid of a socialist economy?” and under the image of Trump it says: “Because Americans want to walk their dogs, not eat them.”

Trump Jr. captioned the post: “It’s funny cuz it’s true!!!” along with crying-laughing emojis and emojis of the American flag.
