At 29 years old, U.S. Representative-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will be the youngest woman ever in Congress, but her first few days as an elected official have come with challenges some of which have nothing to do with politics. As Capitol Hill holds orientation meetings this week, the incoming congresswoman said on Twitter that people keep mistaking her for an intern or someone's spouse.
"People keep giving me directions to the spouse and intern events instead of the ones for members of Congress," Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Wednesday.
When a critic pointed out there were no scheduled intern events that day, she offered a sharp response.
"Last night I was stopped bc it was assumed I was an intern/staffer," she tweeted back. "Next time try believing women + people of color when they talk about their experiences being a woman or person of color."

Oh, the tortured lives of first world socialist grifters. My heart bleeds for their turmoil.
The anticipation of more comments like your own is why this thread is eminently clickable.
Do reporters just follow her around looking for quotes stories about her? Is she that much of a rock star?
MORE!!! We need to hear more from the Teeth!
I’m surprised they don’t confuse her with the cleaning women.
Interns are smarter than this guavera.
Somehow I feel that, if getting under his desk were something she thought could get her ahead, she would willingly do it in a heartbeat.
Any normal male would look at those eyes and think of the famous “Hot vs. Crazy Matrix, and realize she is up there with redheads, hairdressers, women named Tiffany, and so on...and as such, would steer clear.
She is such a drama queen!!
I was looking at her pic the other day and I was thinking that she fancies herself as another Hugo Chavez. Hugo was a true mutt who was one third white, black and Indian (aka Indigenous) and Ocasio-Cortez looks the same. She looks very nice in some photos and ugly in others.
She needs a girlfriend like Amber Heard and prolly already has one. iow ..... Ocasio-Cortez is bi on the sly.
Just call her "The Beav"
” Is she that much of a rock star?”
Socialists are projecting their hopes and dreams onto her. So, yes. Fortunately, they have chosen somebody who appears to have an IQ of about 80.
She ran into Bill Clinton?
You want clickable? Ocasio Cortez is looking lipstick lez or bi to me. She is not “out” because this offends the allegedly Catholic Hispanix who voted for her in Queens NYC.
It sounds like she will be in the face of anyone asking her a question.
She will be much more well known and respected once she get inaugurated and stuff.
How come white racist Nancy Pelosi is opposing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez being elevated to House Speaker? Even Donald Trump is condemning this.
I get see sick every time I see her.
I need Drama Queen Dramamine.....
Bet whoever said that knew dang well who she was. And the lame brain bit.
