Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has a message for Donald Trump

The Democratic Party's rising socialist icon - Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, has been on an intense media junket since her upset primary victory over establishment Democrat Joe Crowley this week - doing her darnedest to project her "girl from the Bronx" working-class image.

Since then, all eyes have been on the 28-year-old activist and some of those eyes belonged to haters.

In another comment, Ocasio-Cortez accused Cardillo of attempting to strip her of her family, story, home and identity.

Ocasio-Cortez, a native of the Bronx, graduated from Yorktown High School in 2007.

Her official biography omits this fact and instead states in part that "she ended up attending public school 40 minutes north in Yorktown, and much of her life was defined by the 40-minute commute between school and her family in the Bronx".

Others chimed in, as well.

Based firm to track Ranbir Kapoor-starrer Sanju's box office collections
The much-awaited biopic of Sanjay Dutt starring Ranbir Kapoor has been leaked online one day before its release. The opening of the film was blockbuster and on an opening day, the film has collected around Rs 30 crore.

The candidate has not endorsed or disavowed on those far-left goals, but her campaign platform does call for abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), establishing universal guaranteed employment, and single-payer healthcare - i.e., "Medicare for all". Alvarado viewed the campaign as an opportunity to document her "humble beginnings and run for office".

But Ocasio-Cortez said the label of democratic socialism did not represent her fully. I went to BU. In a 1999 New York Times profile of Yorktown Heights, the town supervisor described it as "a folksy area where people can come, kick off their shoes, wander around, sit in a cafe, listen to a concert in the park, or go to the theater". My mom scrubbed toilets so I could live here & I grew up seeing how the zip code one is born in determines much of their opportunity.

Earlier version of this story misidentified your alma mater as Brown @Ocasio2018.

Yes, how dare Ocasio-Cortez have the gall-the absolute gall-to grow up in a HOUSE of all places??

John Cardillo, in response to the fierce rebuttal, said that he stood corrected about Ocasio-Cortez's alma mater, but continued to insist that the NY Democratic candidate was not being wholly truthful about her past. Not everyone is happy about how the attention moved toward her - not toward them - but the ones who realize what's happening, they're absolutely excited.
