“It may be shocking to some, but being someone’s daughter actually isn’t a career qualification,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted after the French presidential palace shared footage of the first daughter trying to join a conversation with world leaders at the G20 Summit.

It hurts our diplomatic standing when the President phones it in & the world moves on.
The US needs our President working the G20. Bringing a qualified diplomat couldn’t hurt either. https://t.co/KCZMXJ8FD9
When British talk show host and former Celebrity Apprentice contestant Morgan shot back with a dig at the freshman congresswoman’s bartending work, Ocasio-Cortez responded by calling out his “classism.”
Actually, that would make government better - not worse.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) June 30, 2019
Imagine if more people in power spent years of their lives actually working for a living.
We’d probably have healthcare and living wages by now. https://t.co/HoxIyu6ftj
As always, I‘m proud of my work in restaurants.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) June 30, 2019
I also worked for Sen. Ted Kennedy, piloted literacy projects in the South Bronx, studied Development Economics in W Africa, served as an Educational Director & won international science competitions before I ran for office, too.
Some of the most nuanced, intelligent, & grounded people I‘ve ever met weren’t at BU, MIT or Harvard events when I was a student.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) June 30, 2019
They were the plumbers & waitresses I hung out with at happy hour, who had ferocious intellectual curiosity *and* a lived context of the real world.
(And that’s if they even take out their own trash, which I doubt)— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) June 30, 2019
Now Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who just stepped down as White House press secretary, is coming for Ocasio-Cortez, too. Sanders stood up for the Trumps and accused the New York lawmaker of “phoning it in.”
“Thank you for reminding Americans everyday [sic] why they elected Trump,” the Arkansas native tweeted at Ocasio-Cortez.
Phoning it in @AOC is wasting your time on Twitter while destroying jobs in NY. @realDonaldTrump & @IvankaTrump actually created millions of new jobs and continue to make the US stronger on the global stage but thank you for reminding Americans everyday why they elected Trump. https://t.co/uGN4GXgAsC— Sarah Huckabee Sanders (@SarahHuckabee) July 1, 2019
Ocasio-Cortez hasn’t responded, but Rosie O’Donnell, an outspoken Trump critic, had something to say on the matter.
thank god u r leaving the White House - may we never hear ur voice again - and leave AOC alone - she's got all the things u lack - mostly courage and moral clarity - u sold ur soul Sarah - now u gotta live with that— ROSIE (@Rosie) July 1, 2019
Sanders’s tweet had some supporters agreeing, with one calling Ocasio-Cortez “sooo jealous of Ivanka.”
AOC is soooo jealous of Ivanka, with good reason, Ivanka is successful and aoc is a joke!— Gabriela Ostrow (@gabriela_ostrow) July 1, 2019
AOC has ZERO moral standing nor any real qualifications to talk to a decent and hard working press secretary like that. Despicable!— Daniel Benaim (@dbenaim2500) July 1, 2019
Thankfully, NO ONE TAKES HER SERIOUSLY! She makes a mockery of everything she touches.— 𝔹𝕚𝕣𝕕𝕚𝕖 𝕒𝕟𝕕 𝔹𝕖𝕥𝕥𝕪 (@birdieandbetty) July 1, 2019
Others accused Sanders of lying and blasted her as a “traitor.”
Now would you agree to what you’re saying under oath because we all know it’s the only time you tell the truth.— Mike Axelrod (@mike_axelrod) July 1, 2019
