Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez latest tweet attempting to dunk on Republicans backfired when she confused Democratic Congressman John Yarmuth – the Budget Committee Chairman – with a generic Republican.
The New York representative quickly deleted the tweet, but not before her critics pounced. (Twitchy)
That older male member of the GOP was, of course, her Democratic colleague John Yarmuth. She deleted the tweet — without any explanation or apology of course — but she’ll never be able to delete her own ignorance.
Not only is John Yarmuth a Democrat but he’s Chair of the House Budget Committee. So clearly AOC is paying keen attention and working hard on Capitol Hill.

AOC’s cascading faceplant today was already pretty great, but would you believe it gets better still?
Even more embarrassing for Ocasio-Cortez, she is a co-sponsor of legislation reintroduced by John Yarmuth earlier this month.https://t.co/lDzGB0yVp6
