Damn democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has a damn message for her damn critics.

She made that clear on damn Monday.

In case you missed it, during a congressional hearing last Thursday — in which she tried to destroy the myth of the American dream — AOC schooled the world on shoes and metaphor.

Here’s what she let us all know, related to a famous phrase:

“I also want to thank you about bringing up the poverty draft and this idea of a bootstrap. You know, this idea and this metaphor of a bootstrap started off as a joke because it’s a physical impossibility to lift yourself up by a bootstrap — by your shoelaces? It’s physically impossible. The whole thing is a joke.”

It resulted in a giant wave of commentary:

On Sunday, the former bartender stirred the damn nest:

“For GOPers who spent this week mocking the poor w/“bootstrap” jokes, why don’t you listen to Ms. Hutchinson’s testimony & give one damn reason why we shouldn’t have an accurate poverty line in this country. Unless of course you were talking w/o paying attention to the actual hearing.”

As observed by the Washington Examiner, it’s not Alexandria’s first time to bash the idea that you can succeed in America through your own hard work:

And here’s what she dropped last week:

Well there ya go. If there’s one thing she’s absolutely against, it’s narcissism.

Apropos, If you’d like to learn more from a humble New York representative and her boyfriend, you’re in luck: Find out how white people can combat racism right here.

And maybe the next time you wanna lift yourself up, do it with an elevator.

In flip flops.
