Ocasio-Cortez threatens to use her power to subpoena Don Jr. over a critical meme. Guilfoyle leads outrage.

Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has come under fire for potential ethics violations after she threatened Donald Trump Jr. because he made fun of her.

The New York Democratic socialist took offense to a meme posted by President Donald Trump’s son and called him out in a tweet threatening to use the “subpoena power” of Congress against him.

Trump Jr. mocked the freshman lawmaker on his Instagram account with a popular meme that, in this case, seemed to imply that her socialist views would result in Americans eating dogs out of starvation.

It’s funny cuz it’s true!!! ???????

A post shared by Donald Trump Jr. (@donaldjtrumpjr) on

“It’s funny cuz it’s true!!!” the caption on the post read.

Ocasio-Cortez fired off in a tweet responding to The Washington Post’s coverage of the meme.

But her reaction and implication that she would use her Congressional power against Trump Jr. sparked immediate reaction on Twitter where users questioned her intentions.

Former Fox News host and current girlfriend of Trump Jr., Kimberley Guilfoyle, found the young congresswoman’s tweet “deeply troubling.”

Even those defending Ocasio-Cortez in the past admitted her words could only be taken as a threat.

The Federalist’s Sean Davis cited the House Ethics Manual and detailed how Ocasio-Cortez just violated statutes that state members of Congress are “prohibited from threatening” anyone.

“Ethics Committee should investigate,” Davis concluded, citing the stipulation that lawmakers are “prohibited from threatening punitive action” against those who disagree with them.

Ocasio-Cortez soon responded to the fallout and “the GOP crying that this is a ‘threat,” tweeting that “I don’t have power to subpoena anybody.”

But the 29-year-old, who has yet to even be sworn into office, was shown no mercy for her threatening tweet and her smug response to criticism.
