Soon after the vice presidential debate on Wednesday night, New York socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took issue with Vice President Mike Pence referring to her by her well-known nickname “AOC.”

The media sensation and progressive Democrat star wrote “For the record @Mike_Pence, it’s Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez to you.”

Her tweet was in response to Pence referring to her AOC while discussing her Green New Deal and whether the Biden-Harris ticket supports it.

It’s also funny to note that while she demanded Pence use her proper title as a congresswoman, she didn’t use his proper title as the Vice President of the United States.

Ocasio-Cortez also appeared bothered by what she saw as “gender dynamics” at work during the debate, in which Pence was the only male participant. She accused Pence of demanding answers for the questions he posed to Harris, while trying to avoid directly answering questions put to him by the debate moderator, Susan Page of USA Today.

“Why is it that Mike Pence doesn’t seem to have to answer any of the questions asked of him in this debate?” she wrote.

“Pence demanding that Harris answer *his* own personal questions when he won’t even answer the moderator’s is gross, and exemplary of the gender dynamics so many women have to deal with at work,” she added.

Ready for the hilarious part?

Last March, Ocasio-Cortez went on a Twitter rampage because she accused Fox News hosts of purposely mispronouncing her name.

Towards the end of her tweetstorm, she literally wrote: “AOC is also fine though” and included a smiley face on the tweet.

There it is in the last tweet above.

She literally said last year that it was perfectly fine to refer to her as “AOC” — which are her initials.

Yet when Pence refers to her as AOC, she acts as if he totally disrespected her.

And while she demanded Pence use her proper title as a congresswoman, she didn’t use his proper title as the Vice President of the United States.
