Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez faced backlash after posting a Tweet suggesting Republicans couldn’t handle being a waitress. Her Tweet stated the following,  “Republicans like to make fun of the fact that I used to be a waitress, but we all know if they ever had to do a double they’d be the ones found crying in the walk-in fridge halfway through their first shift bc someone yelled at them for bringing seltzer when they wanted sparkling.”

Her message on the social media platform sparked thousands of responses from both sides of politics, with some supporting her statement and many others posting their own “clap back.”

Some of the notable comments she received on Twitter are below, but keep in mind these are direct quotes from the users and do not represent the website, nor were they fact checked:

“Republicans hate poor people and have no concept of struggle. I could be wrong though, however their actions say otherwise”Micheline Heath

“Nobody benefits from a higher minimum wage. All that would do is raise the cost of living. If a Big Mac is $5 now it would be $10 when the wage goes up. Employers still have to make profit or they close.If the poor & middle class have to pay more for food then how does that help?”Greg Carter

“They make fun of the fact that you went straight from bartending to congress with 0 political experience”Ben Larson

“Wrong. We make fun of a lot of things, but not that. I was a server several times in my life. It’s a hard job, and you can take a lot of abuse… which should’ve prepared you for politics”Matthew Betley
