You couldn’t make this up if you tried.
In a late-Saturday night tweet, America’s most popular rags-to-riches socialist, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (aka #SheGuevara) ridiculed Ivanka Trump, who is attending the G20 Summit with her father.
Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet was in response to video released by the French presidential palace of Trump’s daughter seemingly on the outskirts of a conversation with French President Emmanuel Macron, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, British Prime Minister Theresa May and International Monetary Fund Chairwoman Christine Lagarde.
Ocasio-Cortez used the tweet to her nearly 4.6 million followers to suggest that Trump’s daughter is not qualified to be at the G-20 Summit, stating:
“It may be shocking to some, but being someone’s daughter actually isn’t a career qualification.
“It hurts our diplomatic standing when the President phones it in & the world moves on.
“The US needs our President working the G20. Bringing a qualified diplomat couldn’t hurt either.”

Ironically, before being elected into Congress less than a year ago, Ocasio-Cortez—who has much less business experience than the target of her ridicule—was tending bar in Brooklyn.
In fact, the irony has not been lost on some Twitterers.
Could be worse… Ivanka could have been a bar-tender 18 months ago. https://t.co/xAj8Guc3hH

This is rich.
A woman who was a bartender degrades a woman who had a thriving career prior to joining Office of Economic Initiatives.
Ivanka's initiatives created millions of opportunities for workers by legislative & Admin action.
