As Red State‘s Alex Parker wrote Sunday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) took a sideswipe at Ivanka Trump Saturday after BBC journalist Parham Ghobadi posted a video clip of her attempt at getting involved in a discussion among world leaders during the G-20 summit over the weekend.
To recap, here’s the clip:
Ivanka Trump appears to be trying to get involved in a talk among Macron, May, Trudeau and Lagarde (IMF head).

Instead of using the clip as an opportunity to boost another woman, as she would have had it been a Democratic female trying to make her mark at a world summit, Ocasio-Cortez – who is notorious for accusing her critics of disliking her not just because she’s a woman but also because she’s a “woman of color” – used her massive platform on Twitter to tear down Trump instead:
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. https://t.co/KCZMXJ8FD9

Her cult-like followers took Ocasio-Cortez’s lead, and started tweeting out memes of Trump with the hashtag “#UnwantedIvanka.”
Twitchy documented later on about how, after AOC took a considerable amount of heat over her catty remarks, the freshman Congresswoman went on a wild rant about “leadership” that nobody outside of her deluded fan base was buying.
Later, former White House Press Secretary Sanders got wind of AOC’s comments about Trump and took to the Twitter machine weigh in on the matter:
Phoning it in @AOC is wasting your time on Twitter while destroying jobs in NY. @realDonaldTrump & @IvankaTrump actually created millions of new jobs and continue to make the US stronger on the global stage but thank you for reminding Americans everyday why they elected Trump. https://t.co/uGN4GXgAsC

“AOC is wasting your time on Twitter.” Truer words were never spoken.
