That Sexist Comment About Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Is Now a Perfect Meme

Why do men have such a problem with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez? Is it because she's badass?

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, ben shapiro

The internet did us a favor and combined two of our favorites: memes and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. You know who doesn’t love and respect her? Random people in Washington D.C. On her first day in Congress, someone directed her to where the interns are supposed to go, and someone else sent her to the spouse area.

As if that weren’t enough, Ocasio-Cortez is now having creepshots taken of her because of the way she’s dressed. After a conservative reporter claimed that she doesn’t look like “a girl who struggles” because of her coat, the internet came to her defense and made a mockery of the “Hill staffer” who sent the picture and, subsequently, Eddie Scarry, who tweeted it with the awful caption that is now a fantastic meme.

She’s just a girl heading into the woods …

Not even dogs were safe.

The best part about memes are when you put a meme on a meme on a meme.

She closed her eyes and drew back the curtain to see for certain what she thought she knew.

There’s no struggle with fur.

The Mandarin duck may be back, but she has quite the coat for just a duck.

IKEA Monkey may have been refused entry, but she isn’t struggling now.

We knew it. She’s just three toddlers stacked on top of each other in a trench coat.

At least we know she’s warm.

I’m more concerned about her matching abilities than her lack of finanical struggle.

It may look like a trash bag, but she isn’t struggling, that’s for sure.

It’s cold. Let Alexandria wear a coat. Jesus.

But the winner is definitely this one:

Watch out, Congress.
