New York Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez didn't become queen of Twitter by letting bad faith attacks go unpunished, as White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany is learning the hard way.

During a press briefing, McEnany referred to AOC as "Biden adviser Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez" and the Congresswoman was far from pleased.

She expressed her anger with some expertly thrown Twitter shade.



McEnany responded on Twitter, defending herself by pointing out she had referred to AOC as a Congresswoman earlier in her statement.


Twitter didn't seem to agree with McEnany's version of events, however.



McEnany should have known better.

Twitter is where AOC is at her strongest.


McEnany has a long history of racist and bigoted comments.

She participated in the birther movement, implying Barack Obama was born in Kenya because of the color of his skin.

She also ran a right-wing blog which peddled racist conspiracy theories.



Though AOC called for an apology from McEnany, most people assumed none would ever come.



Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez earned her place as a U.S. Congresswoman and isn't going to accept any lesser labels anytime soon.
