NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez blasted Donald Trump Jr. on Friday for insulting her, and in turn she drew the tire of conservatives who saw her counterattack as a power-abusing threat to the eldest son of President Donald Trump.

She blasted Donald Trump Jr. for posting a picture of her to Instagram with the phrase “Why are you so afraid of a socialist economy? ... Because Americans want to walk their dogs, not eat them.”

It’s funny cuz it’s true!!! --------------

In response to the post, Ocasio-Cortez unleashed on Trump Jr. on Twitter.

“I have noticed that junior here has a habit of posting nonsense about me whenever the Mueller investigation heats up,” the Democratic Socialist from New York tweeted.

“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 continued. “Have fun!”

The “brain” line appeared to reference President Trump saying in September that an expert on Chinese affairs had assured him that “China has total respect for Donald Trump and for Donald Trump’s very, very large brain.”

Some conservatives saw that as a threat.

Ocasio-Cortez brushed that off, pointing out that no individual rank-and-file member has subpoena power.

It’s not the first time Ocasio-Cortez has duked it out on Twitter.

Just last week she found herself in a Twitter battle with former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee over comments she made about the moon landing.
