Trump Says ‘Who Cares’ About Ocasio-Cortez’s Comment — She Thinks She Somehow Got ‘Under His Skin’

NowThis News/YouTube

Despite the fact that President Donald Trump seemed to suggest a question about her was a waste of time, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) said that she somehow got “under his skin.”

The controversy stemmed from an interview in which Ocasio-Cortez said there was “no question” that Trump was a racist.

Watch the video below:

When a reporter asked Trump on Monday about her accusation, he initially asked, “Who?” After the reporter mentioned her name again, Trump seemed to dismiss the question as ridiculous.

“Who cares?” he asked, as IJR Red previously noted.

Watch his response below:

Ocasio-Cortez claimed on Twitter that it showed she got under Trump’s skin:

“I bartended for *years* in New York City,” she said. “I understand guys like this like the back of my hand. We got under his skin.”

She went on to suggest that her tax plan made him uncomfortable because it would expose that he didn’t make as much money as he wanted people to think.

“I’d say we’d be taxing 70% of Trump’s income, but he probably hasn’t made more than $10 million in years – and that’s the real reason he’s hiding his taxes,” she said.

But it wasn’t that clear to others that Trump actually cared about what Ocasio-Cortez had to say:

Nonetheless, some were supportive:

As IJR Red previously noted, Ocasio-Cortez has garnered a substantial amount of attention given her status as a rookie congresswoman. She’s also sparked controversy in her own party, joining a protest in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) office last year.

But now-former Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), like many on the internet, didn’t understand what the big deal was.

“I’m not sure what she’s done yet to generate that kind of enthusiasm, but I wish her well. I hope she hangs the moon,” McCaskill said.

The president didn’t seem very rattled to me. It looked like he legitimately didn’t care what she had to say.

I agree. He didn’t look at all interested. AOC is flying high in her little circle. They really have her ego inflated. To most of the rest of the Country, we really don’t care about anything but the entertainment value we get from her. I don’t think most would even know who she is, if it weren’t for the media shoving her in our faces every day.
