With millions of people stuck inside due to the global pandemic that's upended daily life in the United States, people are turning to new forms of entertainment.

The Nintendo Switch game Animal Crossing has surged in popularity since lockdown orders began. Along with Tiger King and Masterclass, it's become one of the most notable pandemic-era entertainment features.

That's why Democratic Congresswoman and avid gamer Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) decided to get a Nintendo Switch and soon began playing Animal Crossing herself—even virtually visiting some of her former constituents along the way.

AOC tweeted about the venture earlier this week.

While most people answered the Congresswoman's questions and supported the new adventure, trolls soon began emerging from under the Twitter bridge.

Among those trolls was DeAnna Lorraine—a failed congressional candidate whose current claim to fame is posting supportive replies to President Donald Trump's tweets.

She balked at the idea that Ocasio-Cortez had time for recreation.

AOC responded with one of her famously terse clapbacks.

The Congresswoman reminded the failed congressional candidate of Trump's numerous golf trips since his inauguration.

The President has golfed an estimated 249 times, with the costs amounting to around 139 million dollars. That sounds a lot more expensive than a game on Nintendo Switch.

DeAnna tried to clap back herself...

Before asking AOC to debate her.

But her attempts at a comeback only made things worse.

It's almost like DeAnna thinks every lawmaker has to work 24 hours a day.

Looks like DeAnna is just as good at losing Twitter feuds as she is losing congressional primaries.
