New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took a swing at President Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump, but hit herself in the process.
“It may be shocking to some, but being someone’s daughter actually isn’t a career qualification.” The freshman representative posted on Twitter.
“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,” she added.

AOC’s ridiculous comments appear to know no bounds as she proved again this weekend with her comments on Ellis Island and on citizenship being racist.
But a former bartender clamming that someone who has run an international business is not qualified for a career in politics is special even for Ocasio-Cortez.
The beauty of America is that someone could come from any background and be anything they want to be, including a politician.
AOC is a perfect example of this. As a former bartender with hardly any life experience who was elected as a Congresswoman, she should know that.
If Ocasio-Cortez failed to see the irony in her statement, it was something that many conservatives on social media were thrilled to stick in her face.
“Being the daughter of a billionaire and President of the United States is a hell of a lot better qualification than being a socialist bartender.” said a tweet.
But somehow serving beer is a qualification to have a career in politics.

She has done tremendous work for women all over the world. Maybe you could table your personal jealously for a minute.

It may be shocking to some, being a bartender does not qualify someone to be a representative.
AOC needs to learn budgeting and instead of asking for a raise spend less money
It is never a good idea to let someone who cant stretch 174k have a say in our countries budget

“Great point chica! I partially agree with you! Ivanka Trump lacks the world experience which can only be acquired serving tacos and tequila shots to strangers! If only she had that she would then be fully qualified to sustain diplomatic conversations on the world stage!” wrote a post.
