GOP Congressman begs his colleagues to stop underestimating Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

On Tuesday, Rep. James Comer (R-KY) warned his fellow Republicans not to underestimate Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY.)


Ocasio-Cortez has made waves as a freshman member of Congress, and since taking office has been talked about non-stop.

“A lot of Republicans are making a mistake picking on her,” Comer said while co-hosting the Hey Kentucky! show.

She is smart, and I think we need to be very prepared when we debate her on issues that we’re having a hard time with,” Comer said.

He noted that Ocasio-Cortez has started a movement among millennials. She even caught wind of his comments and responded to them on Twitter.
