Thursday, progressive lawmaker AOC responded to fellow Democrat Senator Joe Manchin mocking defunding the police with a “death stare” meme of herself watching Manchin clapping during Trump’s State of the Union address.
Manchin had written “Defund the police? Defund, my butt. I’m a proud West Virginia Democrat. We are the party of working men and women. We want to protect Americans’ jobs & healthcare. We do not have some crazy socialist agenda, and we do not believe in defunding the police.”
AOC did not add any words to her tweet, just the photo of the “death stare.”

One Twitter user replied to AOC “Joe should just declare himself to be a Republican already.”
