Radical Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) was blasted on social media for her hypocrisy after attending the 2021 Met Gala on Monday wearing an ultra-fancy designer dress with the slogan “Tax the Rich” emblazoned across the back.
The Met Gala is an invitation-only event attended by pop stars, actors, musicians, and scores of famous millionaires, with a ticket price of $35,000. The congresswoman’s dress was reportedly designed by Aurora James, whose estimated worth is $9 million.
Conservatives slammed the virtue-signaling socialist on Twitter for her blatant hypocrisy. Donald Trump, Jr. wrote: “What makes @AOC a bigger fraud: The “tax the rich” dress while she’s hanging out with a bunch of wealthy leftwing elites or the lack of masks after spending the past 18 months as one of the biggest authoritarian mask Karens in the country?”
Rep. Lou Barletta tweeted, “Can AOC be more out of touch with reality? This is beyond comprehension. Also, where’s her mask?”
Like all the other celebs there, AOC wasn’t wearing a mask. Yet they were surrounded by mostly black help, all masked. Because rules for thee, not for me.
