House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) flattened freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) in a Twitter spat Monday night.

As IJR previously reported, Ocasio-Cortez faced an onslaught of backlash after she claimed that Republicans pushed the 22nd Amendment — which set a two-term limit on the White House — to force former President Franklin D. Roosevelt out, even though it passed years after his in-office death.

Watch Ocasio-Cortez’s 22nd Amendment comments:

“They had to amend the Constitution of the United States to make sure Roosevelt did not get reelected,” claimed Ocasio-Cortez.

Because of her historical flub, many people jumped on Twitter to correct her and mock the statement, including Cheney.

Cheney jabbed Democrats for opposing stricter voter identification laws, making the old joke that dead people always vote Democrat.

Ocasio-Cortez didn’t take the insult sitting down. She quickly got back on Twitter and found an article that defended her 22nd Amendment hot-take. The Democratic congresswoman bashed her Republican colleague, claiming that she gets her news from online memes.

Ocasio-Cortez linked out to an article from Newsweek that attempted to defend her 22nd Amendment history. Newsweek argued that the planning for the amendment started before Roosevelt left office. Still, that article and Ocasio-Cortez were blasted for being incorrect on Twitter.

While there were many people who jumped in to defend Cheney, it probably wasn’t necessary because she had her own blistering response to fire back at the freshman congresswoman, using a clip from the “School House Rock.”

Several of Cheney’s supporters found her tweet to be a hilarious jab at for Ocasio-Cortez as she is often being taught lessons on Twitter, as IJR has reported.

This is not the first time that Cheney has criticized Ocasio-Cortez online. During the State of the Union address, Cheney slammed Ocasio-Cortez and her colleagues for refusing to stand during many moments of the speech.

Clearly, these two congresswomen won’t be seeing eye-to-eye anytime soon.
