Alleged supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign expressed hostility toward Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) because she praised Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).
After NBC's Saturday Night Live tweeted a surprise video of Warren and cast member Kate McKinnon, Ocasio-Cortez called the short clip "legendary" in a reply on Twitter.
@nbcsnl ok this is legendary— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez)1583647566.0
Many of the responses to Ocasio-Cortez were positive, but the tweet struck a number of Sanders supporters the wrong way.
Some commenters accused her of being a traitor to the Sanders campaign, while others suggested that her time would be better spent fighting for progressive ideals.
