Incoming Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made a lasting impression in her first few days on Capitol Hill; taking part in an unscheduled climate protest outside Nancy Pelosi’s office and being mistaken as an “intern” by staffers.
The self-described Democratic-Socialist left New York City for the nation’s capital this week, where the youngest Congresswoman in US history complained of her public misconception.
“People keep giving me directions to the spouse and intern events instead of the ones for members of Congress,” she posted on social media.

Socialist superstar Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez left New York voters scratching their heads this week; bizarrely suggesting she will be “inaugurated” should she win her Congressional race and will eventually be “signing” bills into law.

“It doesn’t mean you get everything tomorrow. As much as I would love that, I would love to get inaugurated January 3rd [and] January 4th we are signing health care, we’re signing this,” she added.
