Conservative commentator Tomi Lahren attempted to diss Democratic congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez by dressing up as the “terrifying” politician for Halloween, but she ended up just unintentionally bigging up the Boricua politico instead.
On Thursday, the Fox Nation host posted a photo of herself on Instagram wearing a black wig, glasses and a purple binder that read “Green New Deal” with a copy of “The Communist Manifesto,” all aimed at mocking the congressional freshman, who has become one of the fiercest voices for environmental justice in Washington.
“This Halloween, I decided to dress up as the thing that scares me most, the Democratic Dimwit Darling herself,” Lahren, 27, wrote in the post, referring to Ocasio-Cortez, who represents parts of Queens and the Bronx in New York.
“I’m not afraid of ghouls, ghosts, zombies or political incorrectness. I am far more terrified AOC was actually elected to the United States Congress. Talk about a haunted House…” she continued, adding the hashtag, “SocialismKills.”
On Twitter, the mega supporter of President Donald Trump also added that AOC is a “socialist-loving, freedom-hating, former bartender.”
The costume and social media posts — which Ocasio-Cortez has not directly responded to — were intended to deride the progressive politician. However, as Twitter users have pointed out, they actually reveal how threatened the conservative commentator is by AOC and how Republicans view working class employees in the service industry.
