Eddie Scarry, a contributor to Fox News, posted a creep shot of recently elected Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, to his Twitter account. As if that wasn't bad enough, he implied that Ocasio-Cortez doesn't appear to be his version of "poor enough" for a person who has been open about her past financial struggles.
After a swift lashing from the masses, Scarry backpedaled and deleted the tweet. Of course nothing is ever truly deleted from the internet!
He then tried to "fix" his blunder but only succeeded in making it worse.

In other words, if someone is from a working class background, it is shocking that they can be well put together or elegant.
Ocasio-Cortez soon hit back with the perfect responses.
