Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez set Twitter ablaze Thursday after she mistakenly slammed an “Older Male” Republican who is -in fact- a fellow Democrat and co-sponsor of the same legislation.
“Even more embarrassing for Ocasio-Cortez, she is a co-sponsor of legislation reintroduced by John Yarmuth earlier this month,” posted Daily Wire reporter Ryan Saavedra.

The left-wing legislator quickly deleted the tweet and has yet to comment on the controversial post.
EPIC FAIL: AOC Calls for $15 Minimum Wage at Airport Where Minimum Wage is $19
Recently sworn-in Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called for a $15 minimum wage at a New York City airport Monday; bizarrely complaining about the price of a croissant while seemingly unaware the minimum wage at the transportation hub is actually $19 an hour.
“Croissants at LaGuardia are going for SEVEN DOLLARS A PIECE,” she tweeted. “Yet some people think getting a whole hour of personal, dedicated human labor for $15 is too expensive??”

The Congresswoman is apparently unaware the minimum wage for New York airport workers was raised to $19 in September 2018.
“On Thursday, the campaign ended in victory for as many as 40,000 airport workers who are now on a path to earning at least $19 an hour, the highest minimum wage target set by any public agency in the country,” reported the New York Times.
“It will go well beyond the $15 minimum hourly wage that several cities have enacted and that New York State will adopt as the base wage for many workers at the end of the year,” adds the article.
