AOC Makes Embarrassing Mistake In Somber Post For Now-Defeated ‘Squad’ Member


In a heartfelt yet embarrassing tweet, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) paid tribute to her fellow ‘Squad’ member, Jamaal Bowman, who faced defeat in a historic and financially colossal Democratic primary for New York’s 16th Congressional District. Instead of tagging Bowman, AOC mistakenly tagged an unrelated and obscure Twitter account.

Bowman, a former Bronx middle school principal and first-time congressman, was defeated by Westchester County Executive George Latimer in a race that attracted national attention. The primary was noted by ad tracking firm AdImpact as the most expensive House primary on record.

AOC’s post detailed Bowman’s life story, calling attention to his commitment to public service and his roots in public housing, ending with a declaration of him as a “true public servant.” However, the impact of her words was undermined by her tagging an inactive and unrelated account, which belongs to an individual posting about personal anecdotes and casual updates, completely unrelated to Jamaal Bowman or his political career.

X users quickly took to social media to highlight the error, using it as an example of carelessness and lack of attention to detail by members of the ‘Squad.’

Bowman’s defeat on Tuesday marks a notable setback for the progressive wing of the Democratic Party, as he was a prominent member of the “Squad,” a group of progressive lawmakers known for their outspoken advocacy and progressive agendas.

As the ‘Squad’ faces a reshuffling following Bowman’s defeat, questions linger about the group’s influence and the strategic decisions that led to this significant electoral loss.
