Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was forced to delete an embarrassing tweet this week after she got called out for spreading an absolute lie.
The New York socialist lawmaker took to Twitter on Thursday to attack a lawmaker for standing next to a cut-out cardboard that looked like her.
Ocasio-Cortez slammed Rep. John Yarmuth for being a “creeper” and attacked the “Republican” lawmaker for being an “older male.”
There’s just one problem: Yarmuth is a Democrat, not a Republican.
Here’s the original tweet, which has since been deleted:
She deleted the tweet without issuing an apology or acknowledging her egregious error.
Ocasio-Cortez was trying to call out the Republican Party and label it as being nasty and misogynistic for posing with cardboard cutouts of female lawmakers like herself.
But her plan backfired spectacularly when she finally realized that Yarmuth is actually a Democrat.
Making matters even worse, her original tweet (seen above) literally notes that Yarmuth is a Democrat.
She doesn’t even know who her Democrat colleagues are in Congress.
Making matters even worse, Ocasio-Cortez is a co-sponsor of legislation reintroduced by Yarmuth earlier this month.
Yarmuth sits on the congressional committee that oversees climate change and has been trying to help advance her Green New Deal — and Ocasio-Cortez still has no idea who he is and that he’s a Democrat.
Last month, the U.S. Senate voted 0-57 to reject the Green New Deal, meaning not a single senator voted “yes” on it.
Zero senators voted “yea,” with 57 voting “nay” and 43 Democrats voting “present.”
Four Democrats — Sens. Doug Jones of Alabama, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona, and Angus King, I-Maine — joined all 53 Republicans in voting against the socialist measure.
The Green New Deal has also been heavily criticized for how much it will cost taxpayers.
One study found that the price tag for socialist measure would be around $7 trillion.
However, a second study found that the estimated $7 trillion projected cost is painfully low, and that it could actually cost nearly $50 trillion, which would be roughly seven — SEVEN — times more than that.
But wait, there’s more. A third study found that it would actually cost around $93 trillion over the next decade.
All that “free” stuff Ocasio-Cortez keeps promising sure is expensive,and experts argue it will literally end all of civilization if implemented and destroy the country.
In fact, the socialist measure is so bad that top environmental groups are warning that the socialist plan could literally bankrupt the country and lead to half the population starving.
Things have been going so badly for the New York socialist lawmaker than she doesn’t even know who her Democratic colleagues are.
