Before the President took the stage, his son, Donald Trump Jr. warmed up the crowd. During those remarks, he laid into Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Democrats in general for being pushed by her to the left.
“Think about the fact that every mainstream, leading Democratic contender is taking the advice of a freshman congresswoman who three weeks ago didn’t know the three branches of government,” he said. “I don’t know about you guys, but that’s pretty scary.”
Trump Jr. paused for a moment for crowd reaction and a chant of “AOC sucks” broke out, to which he grinned broadly.
The New York Post reports:
Ocasio-Cortez made the flub during an Instagram livestream chat with supporters in November, which she recorded at home while making soup.
“If we work our butts off to make sure that we take back all three chambers of Congress — uh, rather, all three chambers of government: the presidency, the Senate, and the House in 2020,” she said during the livestream that was recorded four months ago.
