One of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s, D-N.Y., tweets seemed to backfire on Thursday when she tried attacking Republicans over a picture of a politician stood next to a cardboard cutout of her.
“GOP: Let’s pose our older male members next to cardboard cutouts of young female legislators,” she tweeted. Her tweet included a post from the Republican Party of Kentucky. However, the politician pictured was Democratic Rep. John Yarmuth, Ky., not a Republican as she claimed.
Ocasio-Cortez later deleted the tweet but not before critics pointed out the gaffe on Twitter.
Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) thinks Rep. John Yarmuth (D-KY) is a Republican member of Congress.
It literally says in the tweet that she is quoting that Yarmuth is a Democrat.
AOC doesn't even know who her Democrat colleagues in Congress are, how embarrassing. pic.twitter.com/p9mxv2qwxw

In this tweet, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez shows she has no idea who John Yarmuth even is.
He's a Kentucky Democrat who just happens to be the Chair of the House Budget Committee.
