  • 'This is a disgrace': Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slams her future colleagues in Congress for employing unpaid interns and failing to pay staffers a 'living wage'

Implying that the younger Trump's post was merely a false show of bravado to distract from the ongoing special counsel investigation of his father, she seemed to threaten further legal troubles for the family, boasting of her "subpoena power" and implying he had picked the wrong person to troll.

Of course, the cause of Venezuela's collapse is more nuanced than just "because socialism", but one key point Junior seems to miss here is what agenda, exactly, Ocasio-Cortez and her peers are backing.

Newly elected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is making in clear that she's not here to make friends - particularly when it comes to the GOP establishment that continues to target her due to her age, gender, economic status, and socialist viewpoints.

Trump Jr. shared a post Thursday featuring photos of his dad and the congresswoman-elect with captions that implied Americans will have to eat dogs because the economy will fail under socialists like Ocasio-Cortez. Congress as a body, GOP included, has the power.

"It's amusing cuz it's true!"

Phillies Trade for All-Star Shortstop Segura
They'd probably be better off prioritizing Bryce Harper or Manny Machado , as offense was a big issue for the team last season. Crawford since the potential always seemed to be there, the addition of Segura would clearly be an upgrade at the position.

Don Jr. posted the meme because he thought it was 'funny cuz it's true!' No indiv. member can issue a subpoena unless they are a Chair (which, as a freshman, I can assure you I will not be).

"Members... are not to take or withhold any official action on the basis of the campaign contributions or support of the involved individuals, or their partisan affiliation".

The meme that Trump Jr.

A source close to Donald Trump Jr. told The Daily Wire that they expect an ethics complaint will be filed. "Congress of ALL places should raise [Members' Representational Allowances] so we can pay staff an actual DC living wage", she wrote.
