Well, it’s only her first week in Washington and already Alexandria Occasionally-Confused is proving herself to be a thin-skinned crybaby.
I gotta say, I’ve never seen someone work so hard at being a victim.
People keep giving me directions to the spouse and intern events instead of the ones for members of Congress 🤦🏽♀️

Now, assuming this account is remotely true, let me tell you how an adult would deal with it.
An adult would have a laugh over it, then politely introduce herself to the “people” who “keep giving her directions” to the wrong events. An adult would smile, shrug it off, then go on her way. And she most certainly wouldn’t feel the need to whine on Twitter after the fact.
That is how an adult deals with little things like this.
But not this crybaby.
Nope. Instead, she rushes onto to Twitter to kvetch to her followers about how mistreated she is.
Frankly, I’m surprised she didn’t add, “Don’t they know who I am?!!! I’m freaking Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez!!!! I’m a freaking celebrity!! Haven’t they seen one of my many interviews on CNN?!”
Naturally, the crybaby got called out for her whining.

And, big surprise here, her response was to double down on what a victim she is.
– Dem Spouse + Member luncheon were at the same time today. I was sent to spouse event.
– Last night I was stopped bc it was assumed I was an intern/staffer
– Next time try believing women + people of color when they talk about their experiences being a woman or person of color https://t.co/xXwAUegQNI

Now, assuming (again) that her account of this supposed unspeakable mistreatment is in any way accurate, it had nothing to do with “being a woman or person of color,” and everything to do with being the new kid on the block.
It doesn’t prove that women or people of color are treated abominably – and not just because it isn’t particularly abominable.
If anything, it only proves that not many people on Capitol Hill watch CNN and because of that don’t know her by sight.
Listen, you victim-claiming crybaby. Gut it up!
Stop whining to your sycophantic Twitter followers over every imagined slight. And for heaven’s sake, grow a thicker skin.
You’re not a Victim. In less than two months’ time, you will be a sitting member of the House of Representatives for the United States of America.
Part of that means knowing how to deal with things like an adult.
And if you’re not up to that task, then resign and let a grown-up take your place.
Now do you understand why I laugh myself silly when she claims we’re afraid of her?
Speaking of how an adult deals with it…
I remember this well! Best advice is to kindly smile, point to your pin, and excitedly say “Nope. I’m a Member – the youngest one!” My experience is that people & esp the US Capitol Police are proud to meet young, new Members. They have a tough job & are amazing public servants🇺🇸 https://t.co/nknT5Q2Jui

Of course, Elise is a Republican. So she doesn’t go through life hunting for perceived insults like a child furiously searching for Waldo.
