Ocasio-Cortez claps back at GOP criticism for playing Animal Crossing: ‘Curious for your thoughts on Trump’s golf bills’

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) clapped back at GOP criticism over her playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons during the coronavirus pandemic, saying, “Curious for your thoughts on Trump’s golf bills.”

Shortly following her announcement that she would be visiting the virtual islands of some of her Twitter followers, former Republican congressional candidate DeAnna Lorraine, who ran unsuccessfully for Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D) California House seat, scoffed at Ocasio-Cortez on social media.

 

President Trump’s frequent trips to his golf properties have been a regular cause for complaint among Democrats, though he hasn’t visited one in weeks as the country is largely shut down over the pandemic.

Ocasio-Cortez’s virtual visitations came as a pleasant surprise for some users, as the Representative left notes on the in-game bulletin board for some of her followers.

“To Justin, mama, and family – Thank you for welcoming me to your lovely island. It is such an honor to visit your home away from home! – Alexandria from BoogieDown” one message said.
