Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez responds to Twitter trolls - and critical NYC billboard

In an interview with NBC, Jodi Seth, the Amazon head of policy communications said, "If you talk to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, it's 'Never Amazon.' If you talk to Jimmy Van Bramer, it's unions". Ocasio-Cortez hit back at both Twitter trolls and a critical billboard this week, and it appears she is letting their judgements bounce right off of her.

When asked whether she regretted getting into politics because of the attention and criticism she gets online, Ocasio-Cortez said it only validated her choices.

Fans loved every second of Ocasio-Cortez on the show, but for as much love as she gets on Twitter, she's also a lighting rod for hate. "What is the point of doing things if you're just trying to maintain the status quo that doesn't help people?"

Ocasio-Cortez - who said she'd probably be teaching high school if President Donald Trump wasn't elected - proved she's not taking her critics too seriously as she called the memes she tagged in on social media "so weak".

JCN writes in a press release that the billboards were meant to "poke fun at the tweet" by Ocasio-Cortez that she had made in response to its original billboard on Wednesday. Amazon's NY investment would have put 25,000 jobs in the Long Island City neighborhood of Queens, at a cost of almost $3 billion in tax breaks. "PS fact that it's in Times Sq tells you this isn't for/by NYers", she said, commenting on the fact that Times Square is typically a tourist destination, rather than a space frequented by NY residents.

Amazon cancels plans for New York City HQ, deals blow to Gov. Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio.

Fox News Anchor Laura Ingraham shared a picture of the billboard on Twitter, thanking @JobCreatorsUSA. It's not to say we're going to force everybody to go vegan or anything insane like that.

"You're not going to hear me or (House Speaker Jose) Aliva or any of the people in Florida push away people that want to bring jobs to our state".
