Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Makes Republicans Go INSANE

WATCH: Ron DeSantis calls New York's Ocasio-Cortez: 'this girl … or whatever she is'

Lending some credibility to that argument, one Republican congressman, Ron Desantis, who is a candidate for governor of Florida - nowhere near New York's 14th Congressional District - referred dismissively to Ocasio-Cortez as "that girl, or whatever she is" at a campaign event at the weekend. Cenk Uygur, and John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down.

Florida Representative Ron DeSantis, who is running for governor of the state, appeared at a campaign rally on Saturday and chose to use Ocasio-Cortez's name in his attack against democratic socialism, Broadly reports.

DeSantis made the remarks at a political rally in Orange Park, according to the Huffington Post, which broke the story.

Khanna called Ocasio-Cortez "a bold champion for progressive values" and said he looks forward to working with her in Congress. "It's basically socialism wrapped in ignorance". "She's complaining about the occupation of Palestine ..."

In the mash-up, Ocasio-Cortez appears unable to answer basic questions about her socialist ideology and the direction socialism might take her country.

DeSantis went on to critique 28-year-old Ocasio-Cortez's views as a self-proclaimed Democratic socialist on the Israel-Palestine conflict.

The U.S. intelligence community also proved that Russian agents attempted to meddle in the 2016 elections to benefit Republicans. Last week Mr Trump also triggered immediate criticism when he appeared to deny the Kremlin is still targeting America.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) said DeSantis' "stunningly sexist" statements could come back to haunt him at the ballot box. "She has no clue what she's talking about".

"Rep DeSantis, it seems you're confused as to "whatever I am", Ocasio-Cortez wrote".

"I want every person to know if you stand next to Ron DeSantis you are anti-woman, bottom line".

She continued: "It's unusual you don't know what that is, given that ~75,000 Puerto Ricans have relocated to Florida in the 10 mos since María".

"But I'm sure these new FL voters appreciate your comments!" she added.

President Trump is scheduled to campaign for 39-year-old DeSantis amongst other Florida Republicans in Tampa next week.
