Former President Donald Trump continues to troll leftist Democrats online, and his latest target is none other than Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). As the former president is well known for his endorsements, he added AOC to his list of candidates he’s thrown his support behind.
Nothing disturbs the souls of the radical left quite like seeing Trump smiling and having a good time.
Calling her support for the Green New Deal “terrible” and a “disaster” for the American public, Trump, quite tongue-in-cheek, gave AOC his ringing endorsement.
Acknowledging that some call her AOC for short, which has raised her ire in the past, the former president said he is “thrilled to give her my Endorsement.” In his social media post, he said that “AOC is a great addition to Congress.”
Ocasio-Cortez takes offense at times to her political opponents referring to her by her widely used nickname. She is on record as saying “women notice” when they are not referred to by their titles and last names by men in power.
Trump, of course, did not stop there.

The needling continued with a reference to the “Blonde AOC” memes circulating the internet that show the congresswoman with a lighter shade of hair. Trump said that if we are being honest, we “need a few more AOCs in Congress.”
“Take it from me, Alexandria,” the former president happily posted, “Blondes have more fun!”
In all apparent seriousness, some on the left believe that Ocasio-Cortez is the best option in 2024 to counter a possible Trump run for another term in the Oval Office.
In a recent opinion piece written for The Hill, leftist contributor Michael Starr Hopkins endorsed AOC as the party’s “unafraid, unapologetic, and unwilling to bend” alternative to a Trump candidacy.
He even likened her rise to that of former Democratic star and President Barack Obama.
In all seriousness, AOC would be a dream matchup for Trump — or any Republican — in the next presidential election cycle. And while he’s having fun trolling the New York Democrat, her presence in Congress shows national Republicans just how far to the left the party has drifted.
