Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic candidate who won her district's primary over a ten-term incumbent earlier this summer, was recently criticized for her sense of style.

Ocasio-Cortez is a very outspoken Democratic socialist, so when she was seen wearing an expensive outfit--the total retail cost of which was $4,100--Fox News saw an opening for a line of attack.

Katie Pavlich and Pete Hegseth on Fox and Friends threw some pretty intense shade:

"The rising star of the Democratic Party has expensive tastes for a socialist," they began.

"I mean I want a pair of $600 shoes. I think she should redistribute…hypocrisy at its best," said Pavlich.

"It's tough being a socialist. It really is," said Hegseth.

Also, Charlie Kirk--a well known conservative activist--called Ocasio-Cortez out over Twitter.

But all were missing one important point: why exactly was Ocasio-Cortez wearing this outfit?

But Ocasio-Cortez was quick to respond:

"Get used to me slaying lewks." Put that on our tombstone.

The internet is also providing points of support for the 28-year-old candidate.

And some people are really shaming her for complying with the magazine, as if she had a choice:

This guy seems to have missed the point completely:

But, thankfully, most people realize that Charlie Kirk is just tone deaf.

Kirk quickly pulled a typical conservative "What About"-ist move:

But...nobody is fooled.

Things are looking good, as Ocasio-Cortez only needs the support of the 14th district of New York to be elected to office. So look out everyone, a fiercely dressed socialist is likely headed to Congress in November!

Let's face it, nine times out of ten, dad is the court jester trying pushing the line when mom is not looking. So dad is usually begging the little ones to keep a kabash on the events that transpire in mom's absence.
