I'm pretty sure we all know why AOC deleted this tweet.
Socialist Congressional Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hopped on Twitter yesterday so she could criticize a photograph of a man standing next to a cardboard cutout of her:
"GOP: Let's pose our older male members next to cardboard cutouts of young female legislators"
Her tweet included a photo of an older white man with thinning grey hair standing next to a cardboard cutout of her.
Just one problem with her Tweet... It wasn't a picture of a Republican.
Nope. The politician pictured was Democratic Rep. John Yarmuth, Ky.
Not only is Yarmuth a Democrat, but he's also a leader of the Democrat party - more specifically, Chairman of the House Budget Committee.
Making the matter even more embarrassing, the photo she posted even contained text explaining that it was a picture of a Democrat (the actual photo was a screenshot posted by the Kentucky Republican party).
AOC deleted the Tweet after millions of people on Twitter called out her gaffe.
It's probably time for Democrats to stop treating AOC like she's the intellectual thought leader of their movement. She's walking them right off a cliff.
