Ouch, that one must smart! On second thought maybe smart is not the best word to use when talking about Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who is once again working hard to embarrass herself and her party by attempting — and failing bigtime — to zing the GOP on Twitter.

The misfire began with a tweet by the Republican Party of Kentucky featuring a photograph of Rep. John Yarmuth posing next to a life-size cutout of Ocasio-Cortez. The text of the tweet, which appears below, notes that last month “the socialists threatened” Yamuth “if he didn’t bend to their radical, extremist will,” followed by a link to an article on the same in the Courier-Journal.

Ocasio-Cortez evidently saw the tweet and decided to treat Republicans to a giant dose of her wit, tweeting:

Just one problem. Yarmuth is a Democrat. If she had read the tweet by the Republican Party of Kentucky carefully, she would have noticed that. But even if she didn’t, she should know the name John Yamuth anyway: He’s chairman of the Budget Committee in the Democrat-controlled House.

Her tweet has been scrubbed, though it has been preserved for posterity by several conservative Twitter users.
