Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., shot back at Laura Ingraham in a lengthy series of tweets Wednesday night after the Fox News host and guest Joe diGenova joked about the way she pronounces her name.

Ingraham asked diGenova if he noticed and thought that Ocasio-Cortez put on an accent when pronouncing her name.

The article goes on to state the following:

“She does the Latina thing where she does her, you know, ’Anastasio Ocasio-Cortez,” the attorney said, imitating her accent before jokingly repeating a version of his own name in a heavy Italian accent.

AOC responded with a tweet that said: “If by ‘the Latina thing,’ she means I actually do the work instead of just talk about it, then yeah, I’m doing ‘the Latina thing.’ Unless of course she‘s talking about being multilingual, which we know isn’t a ‘Latina thing.’ It’s a ‘21st century’ thing.”

In a second tweet, she posted a picture of Ingraham captioned: “Siri, show me the brand of ‘economic anxiety’ that mocks Americans of color as unintelligent + unskilled, while *also* mocking those same Americans for speaking more languages than you.”

    This ‘Latina that had a brother put her name in for an audition’ call, thinks she’s smart because she can speak more than one language.. Where exactly did that ability get her in life: she was a bartender that could tell drunks “last call” in more than 1 language. Big whoop!!
    Sadly, she’s so much like Donald J. Trump’s egomania, she could be a ‘wannabe’ Trump!!! Too bad little girl…. you’re not bright enough. And if you are, you sure don’t act like you are!!
