Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-CA) was caught avoiding the masses and instead flew first class during an American Airlines flight last Sunday.
Representative Ocasio-Cortez, who is a self-styled Socialist, was seen flying first class by an anonymous tipster on a flight from Austin to John F. Kennedy International Airport.
Representative Ocasio-Cortez settled into the much more spacious and luxurious first-class seats, further cementing her identity as a champagne socialist.
An anonymous Democrat commented on the situation, saying, “She lives above a Whole Foods and drives a Tesla, so she probably feels more at home up front.”
Representative Ocasio-Cortez wants to have her cake and eat it too. She wants to be seen as a champion of the people while also enjoying the lifestyle of the 1% that the rest of Americans can’t afford to enjoy.
This latest story is another disaster for Representative Ocasio-Cortez, who has seen her reputation take hit after devastating hit. If things continue like this, it is hard to imagine she will have much of an image left to campaign on.
