    Dumb and thin-skinned. A terrible combination.

    Ocasio-Cortez Threatens To Retaliate Against Trump Jr. Over Meme, Twitter Explodes With Accusations Of Ethics Violations

    Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez threatened to use the powers of her elected office to retaliate against Donald Trump Jr. on Friday after the president's son posted a meme trolling her 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."

    "Have fun!" she concluded.

    Ocasio-Cortez's tweet came in response to this Instagram post from Trump Jr.:



    Almost immediately, numerous political analysts, commentators, and pundits noted that Ocasio-Cortez's comments likely constituted an ethics violation.

    "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.

    The House prohibition on the very kind of threat that @Ocasio2018 just made to @DonaldTrumpJr couldn't be clearer: lawmakers are "prohibited from threatening punitive action" against people/groups for not politically supporting the lawmaker. Ethics Committee should investigate. pic.twitter.com/NNIPp1vsyv

    A source close to Donald Trump Jr. told The Daily Wire that they expect an ethics complaint will be filed.

    Here are some of the most notable responses to Ocasio-Cortez's tweet:

    So, um, if he trolls you on media, then you're going to use the power of the government to come after him? That's not fascist or anything. https://t.co/82hOJp39Ua

    So you stalk @DonaldJTrumpJr on Twitter and are now threatening to abuse Congressional subpoena power for a personal vendetta if he continues to point out the stupid things you say? How very progressive. https://t.co/y83M83NH55

    Something tells me that if this happened, the media coverage would look different than Politico's story here. https://t.co/wbxYpAl0Ed

    My dislike for Jr is well-documented, but threatening a private citizen with a Congressional subpoena because he made a meme you don't like is one hell of a hot take. https://t.co/urxbAaSIbA

    Sorry, did this fool just threaten to use the power of government to punish a citizen because he posted a meme? https://t.co/gnlpGAAiKs

    Did you just threaten to subpoena someone for criticizing you? As a lawyer and former prosecutor I find this deeply troubling. https://t.co/OqIpBkbsIS

    .@Ocasio2018, you come off as ignorant and uninformed.

    Going to threaten all of with illegal retaliatory subpoenas because you’re too thin skinned to take that kind of criticism?

    You are proving that you are far too emotional and immature to hold this seat. https://t.co/JHLnBBrhiT

    She'll probably get away with it due to diminished mental capacity and/or being mentally retarded.

    CRIMINAL ACT: Democrat Ocasio-Cortez Broke 42 US Code § 1983 By Threatening Donald Trump Jr. with Retaliation Over Snarky Meme

    On Friday Donald Trump Jr. mocked dimwitted Socialist Alexandrea Ocasio-Cortez on Instagram with a popular meme that is going around social media.

    Ocasio-Cortez: Why are you so afraid of a socialist economy?
    President Trump: Because Americans want to walk their dogs, not eat them.



    Of course, it’s pretty funny because it it true.

    In response Ocasio-Cortez threatened to harass and abuse Don Jr. with a subpoena to testify before Congress.



    Ocasio-Cortez then doubled-down on her threat!

    For the GOP crying that this is a “threat” – I don’t have power to subpoena anybody.
    Congress as a body, GOP included, has the power. No indiv. member can issue a subpoena unless they are a Chair (which, as a freshman, I can assure you I will not be). Also must be under purview.

    It appears Ocasio-Cortez broke federal law by threatening a US citizen with retaliation for snarky tweets.

    You can’t use the power of the law to get back at people for their Instagram memes, Alexandria!

    According to — 42 U.S. Code § 1983 – Civil action for deprivation of rights

    Every person who, under color of any statute, ordinance, regulation, custom, or usage, of any State or Territory or the District of Columbia, subjects, or causes to be subjected, any citizen of the United States or other person within the jurisdiction thereof to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured by the Constitution and laws, shall be liable to the party injured in an action at law, suit in equity, or other proper proceeding for redress, except that in any action brought against a judicial officer for an act or omission taken in such officer’s judicial capacity, injunctive relief shall not be granted unless a declaratory decree was violated or declaratory relief was unavailable. For the purposes of this section, any Act of Congress applicable exclusively to the District of Columbia shall be considered to be a statute of the District of Columbia.
    (R.S. § 1979; Pub. L. 96–170, § 1, Dec. 29, 1979, 93 Stat. 1284; Pub. L. 104–317, title III, § 309(c), Oct. 19, 1996, 110 Stat. 3853.)

    This is Pelosi's chance to expel this inbred. (Does she have the guts to do it? Does she even know her name or where she is?) It doesn't matter that Openly-Crazy relented and tried to back off after somebody smarter told her she stepped in it. What matters is she made the threat with the intention to intimidate and silence.
