[Ed. – Good thing she’s becoming more stature-ly and relevant in office.  Memo to Rep. Ocasio-Cortez: You can call me Commander.]

House Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), a self-described Democratic Socialist, tweeted last night in opposition to President Trump’s use of the nickname “AOC” to refer to her during the second presidential debate. She claimed the usage was a violation of “Basic respect 101,” and that it was an example of Republicans advertising “their disrespect of women.” …

In her first tweet from last night, Ocasio-Cortez writes, “I wonder if Republicans understand how much they advertise their disrespect of women in debates when they consistently call women members of Congress by nicknames or first names while using titles & last names when referring to men of = stature. Women notice. It conveys a lot.”

“AOC is a name given to me by community & the people,” she wrote. “Y’all can call me AOC.”
