Newly elected New York democratic member of the United States House of Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, has threatened to use her subpoena powers to retaliate against Donald Trump Jr. on Friday after he posted a meme on his personal Instagram account.
“I have noticed that Junior here has a habit of posting nonsense about me whenever the Mueller investigation heats up,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “Please, keep it coming Jr – it’s definitely a “very, very large brain” idea to troll a member of a body that will have subpoena power in a month.”
“It’s worth noting that the official House Ethics Manual explicitly prohibits the kind of threat that @Ocasio2018 just issued against @DonaldJTrumpJr for his refusal to support her political agenda,” The Federalist’s Sean Davis wrote on Twitter.
Numerous other political analysts noted that Ocasio-Cortez’s comments likely constituted an ethics violation.
Cortez’s social media post was in response to a meme shared by Trump Jr. on Instagram, which shows the top photo of the meme with an image of Ocasio-Cortez along with the caption, “Why are you so afraid of a socialist economy?”
The second photo of the meme shows President Donald Trump with a caption that reads, “Because Americans want to walk their dogs, not eat them.”
