The meme that upset posted by Don Jr. depicted Ocasio-Cortez asking President Trump, “Why are you so afraid of a socialist economy?,” to which President Trump is captioned as replying, “Because Americans want to walk their dogs, not eat them.”

Ocasio-Cortez then responded to Don Jr.’s meme on Twitter, where she said, “I have noticed that Junior here has a habit of posting nonsense about me whenever the Mueller investigation heats up.”

She added, “Please, keep it coming Jr – it’s definitely a “very, very large brain” idea to troll a member of a body that will have subpoena power in a month. Have fun!” See Below

Ocasio-Cortez’s was instantly blasted on Twitter for threatening a subpoena on Don Jr. all over a simple meme.
