Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DN.Y., attacked an anonymous pushpin who "scared" took a picture of her in a restaurant with an assistant who was feasting on a juicy hamburger – an image that quickly went around the social media, as was taken a few days after asking if the Americans needed to eat so much meat.
"Tonight, a guy was scary (and obviously) taking my picture while claiming the opposite and I had to break his fourth imaginary wall and say" Hi! I am a person! It's weird! She tweeted.

The photo, published by conservative social media strategist Caleb Hull, showed Ocasio-Cortez and chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti eating at an unidentified restaurant. Notably, Chakrabarti was eating a juicy hamburger, just days after Ocasio-Cortez warned Americans against excessive consumption of America's favorite dish.
Speaking of his Green New Deal, which originally came with an FAQ that spoke (presumably of a tongue-in-cheek tongue) about "getting rid" of "farting the cows" to help fight Climate change, Ocasio-Cortez said on TV Americans may need to eat fewer burgers.
"In the agreement, what we're talking about, and it's true, is it necessary to have a look at industrial farming, you know? Period. It's wild, "said Ocasio-Cortez last week at" Desus & Mero, "the late-night showtime. like that. But that is to say, "Listen, we must talk about industrial agriculture. Maybe we should not eat a hamburger for breakfast, lunch and dinner. For example, let's keep the truth. "
Earlier this month, she told a school assembly of teenagers in Queens for "skipping meat / dairy for a meal".
The image of his assistant with a hamburger was too juicy to resist critics looking for examples of double standards.
"Hello AOC, why does your chef de cabinet eat a hamburger?" Hull tweeted, accompanied by a headline stating that she had urged Americans to eat fewer hamburgers. He also deleted a tweet from the photo by himself.

Hull clarified later that "this photo was taken and sent to me because AOC told the country to eat fewer burgers and that its COS is here eating a hamburger."
"You will notice that she was not confronted and forced to leave the restaurant as the Liberals did at the GOP?", He added, referring to incidents during which Republicans and Trump administration officials were chased out of restaurants by liberal activists.
