Ocasio-Cortez Responds to Journalist Who Mocked Her Congressional Clothes: ‘Dark Hates Light – That’s Why You Tune it Out’

Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez did not let a reporter’s slight about her outfit go unnoticed.

Instead, she took to Twitter to respond to Eddie Scarry‘s tweet.

On Thursday, the Washington Examiner reporter — who briefly wrote for Mediaite — wrote this and tweeted a pic of Ocasio-Cortez’s backside view:

In response, Ocasio-Cortez shot back a tweet reading: “if I walked into Congress wearing a sack, they would laugh & take a picture of my backside.”

She added: “Dark hates light – that’s why you tune it out.”

It is not the first time conservatives have ripped Ocasio-Cortez for her clothes. Back during the campaign, the then-congressional candidate appeared in posh clothes for a photo shoot.

Fox News and other outlets had a field day with her outfit choice, prompting Ocasio-Cortez to reply, “Get used to me slaying lewks.”
