In what seemed like a convoluted rant that took many confusing twists and turns, AOC somehow circled back to defending a $4,500 a year congressional pay raise for herself and other members of Congress.

Many on Twitter found AOC hypocritical and fired back.
Lol… give us trustworthy politicians more money or else we will be corrupt… but if you do give us this raise I promise we won’t be corrupt.

She makes over $170K and she needs a *raise*???
Yeah um no.
She works for us. We tell HER when she gets a raise.
