After a disturbed person at Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s town hall on Thursday called for eating babies to solve the climate crisis, Ocasio-Cortez went on Twitter to call for compassion, urging her critics on the Right to stop ridiculing the woman, whom Ocasio-Cortez believed may have had a mental condition. She was later revealed to be a pro-Trump plant.
President Donald Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., sadly still acted with the level of maturity that Americans have come to expect from him.
Seems like a normal AOC supporter to me. https://t.co/NWVMRD0wsl

And in a display of approval we’re sure Jr. was eager for, the President retweeted his son, writing:
“AOC is a Wack Job!”
Ocasio-Cortez is the latest Democrat to fall target to Trump’s deflections from the impeachment inquiry launched against him last week. News has only gotten worse for Trump after revelations that during a private phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in which Trump urged Zelensky to investigate his political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden. Support for impeachment has only grown since.
It wasn’t long before Ocasio-Cortez, who has long been a leading voice in calling for Trump’s impeachment, was quick to remind him that he used the office of the Presidency for personal gain.
Better than being a criminal who betrays our country. https://t.co/UnShA6gcQQ

Ocasio-Cortez is constantly tweeting out clapbacks, and her latest one had people applauding.
AOC works for our country, Sir, while you work for yourself.

Others began reminding Trump of a few things as well.
Your supporters sent mail bombs and have committed acts of white nationalist terrorism.

Your calling someone else a wack job is what therapists call projection.

As usual, the detractors haven’t deterred him. The President has tweeted 12 times in the 12 hours since he sent that tweet.
