In the first few months in office, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has already confirmed herself as one of the best representatives to follow on Twitter. Whether she sets out the problems with America’s armed violence, summarizes left-wing collective feelings about political moderates, or splits Fox News for yet another racist joke, the online presence of Ocasio-Cortez makes politically accessible and exciting for people who had long coordinated the speaking heads.
Although Hillary Clinton’s online presence has been relatively quiet since the election, she is still in fashion if it seems appropriate. I once told you to let Trump know that she had stolen her campaign slogan.
So when Clinton signed up to respond to one of Ocasio-Cortez’s recent tweet that Jared Kushner screamed out, it was an unexpected and perfectly timed cameo.
Ocasio-Cortez tweeted a recent video clip showing the Romanian representative of the Democrats, Ro Khanna, the irony of Jared Kushner through WhatsApp to contact foreign officials. The irony, of course, lay in the fact that Trump’s election campaign was fixated on Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server.
Her caption saturated the chorus of people who asked “but her e-mails.”
And Clinton apparently took note, because she signed up to match the sentiment of Ocasio-Cortez.
Although this may be the first major Twitter exchange between the Ocasio-Cortez and Clinton, given how much dirt is being dug up about the current administration, I doubt that this will be the last.
