Texas GOPer gets roundly mocked for trying to troll Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Some have dubbed freshman GOP Rep. Dan Crenshaw (TX) as the antithesis of another first-term member of Congress, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who recently suggested that the wealthiest Americans should have to pay income taxes at a 70 percent marginal rate, which just so happens to be supported by a majority of taxpayers.

Crenshaw was watching the Super Bowl between the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams, so he decided he’d try some social media trolling of his Democratic colleague with this tweet:

Wow! Not only did Ocasio-Cortez manage to prove that Crenshaw doesn’t know the basics of her tax plan, she also got a mention of former San Francisco 49ers quaterback Colin Kaepernick in there.

Others on social media then joined the debate and raked Crenshaw over the proverbial coals:
