The spokesman for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted an expletive at a potential Republican challenger, but then deleted it after receiving blow back.
While speaking with the New York Post, conservative radio show host Rich Valdes began by explaining how he tried to confront Ocasio-Cortez on Sunday during the National Puerto Rican Day Parade in Manhattan.
Ocasio-Cortez literally ran away and refused to even acknowledge Valdes.
After the entire situation made headlines, Ocasio-Cortez’s spokesperson Corbin Trent took to Twitter and responded with profanity.
“Yo @RichValdes what in the actual f**k makes you think you’re entitled to a debate with AOC. Pro tip: stalking her at a parade ain’t gonna make it any more likely to happen,” he wrote.
When grilled by the Post about his tweet, Trent attempted to belittle Valdes.
“She kept walking! The parade moved! It’s a procession! Give me a break,” Trent told the Post. “Tell him to run for office and she’ll debate him.”
A day later, Trent deleted the tweet and admitted that it had been a bad idea.
“I did indeed send that,” he said to The Post. “I did indeed delete it. It didn’t seem that helpful.”
“I regret that so many people right from presidential candidates to right-wing commentators to random people that start organizations think that they’re entitled to people’s time,” he added. “I think she’s spending a ton of time in the district talking about what she’s doing, talking about why she’s doing it and making a case for her policies.”
This has been a bad week for Ocasio-Cortez.
