Press Asks Trump About Ocasio-Cortez. He Responds: "Who Cares?"
Lest anyone accuse me of writing a clickbait story, the post is the headline. Trump was asked by a reporter this morning about something something "what of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?" The background noise is too loud for me to decipher the exact wording of the reporter's question. That doesn't matter so much as Trump's response:

The hand gesture dismissing her was icing on the morning muffin. Of course this dismissal of Socialist Barbie got under the skin of Socialist Barbie herself, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. In response, she tweeted a perfect example of projection:
No, Congresswoman, I think Trump just doesn't care about you. Which I understand is confusing, what with the constant coverage AOC is getting from all of us. It's hard not to cover AOC, let me tell you. But outside of media, I'm not sure many other people care about AOC. That includes Trump.
The president has more important matters to attend to outside of what a freshman congresswoman is typing on Twitter. Confusing, sure, since Trump is also a frequent Twitter typist. The difference is lately Trump has been great at it. Read Donald Trump Wins the Internet with SICK BURN on Jim Acosta.
