Candace Owens blasted AOC and called her a “spoiled rotten brat” after the progressive NY lawmaker claimed Republicans would be brought to tears if they had to do her old waitressing job.
AOC wrote “Republicans like to make fun of the fact that I used to be a waitress, but we all know if they ever had to do a double they’d be the ones found crying in the walk-in fridge halfway through their first shift bc someone yelled at them for bringing seltzer when they wanted sparkling”
Candace Owens, a conservative firebrand did not buy AOC’s theory and shot back “I used to be a waitress and I worked multiple doubles.
I am laughing out loud at how much of a coastal elitist you have to be to view that as the definition of a hard day at work.”
She added “Please get on a plane and see the rest of the world (or country) you spoiled rotten brat.”
Owens added mockingly in a subsequent tweet “And then he sent his French fries back THREE times! Republicans could NEVER handle that.”
Replying to another Twitter user, Owens also wrote “LMAO. I did work YEARS in their shoes. I waitressed since I was 17. I’m speaking from experience. It’s long work, it’s tiring work, it’s respectable work— but it’s privileged work compared to what most others endure across this country and in the world.”
Republican Dan Crenshaw also mocked AOC over her remarks.
Crenshaw told Georgia rally attendees “These people are nuts. It’s not just Chuck Schumer; Chuck Schumer is controlled by people like AOC, who believes that the biggest hardship in life was figuring out whether it was still or sparkling, and you don’t know hardship until you’ve cried in the back. I was thinking, I was like, jeez, I am so glad I did not have to do that in my former career. That was my biggest problem in the mountains of Afghanistan was — do we offer them still or sparkling, and what if they don’t like it? Rough out there, man. That’s Congress these days. We cannot give these people control.”
When AOC took issue with his remarks, he fired back at her and wrote “Lol thank you for highlighting how ridiculous you sound. We “republican elites” who fought in the mountains of Afghanistan will just go ahead and check our privilege.”
