Texas Republican buried in mockery after attacking Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez with hilariously bad Super Bowl-themed tweet

Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) has been described as the GOP's answer to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) -- but he got thoroughly roasted by his fellow freshman.


The Texas Republican applied Ocasio-Cortez's proposal for a 70 percent marginal tax rate to the Super Bowl-winning New England Patriots, and the New York Democrat and scores of other social media users let him have it.

"Should someone propose a 70% tax on the Patriots so that NFL competition is more fair and equal?" Crenshaw tweeted. "Asking for a friend."

Ocasio-Cortez replied to Crenshaw's tweet to point out that her proposal wouldn't apply to most NFL players, and jabbed team owners who refuse to sign free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick over his protest of racism and police violence.

Other Twitter users pointed out other glaring flaws in Crenshaw's argument.
