Donald Trump knows how to get under the skin of his political opponents.
Trump is known for giving his opponents humiliating nicknames.
And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez flew off the rails after Donald Trump humiliated her with this one nickname.
In a series of posts on Truth Social, Donald Trump jokingly endorsed a number of radical left-wing Democrats running for Congress in New York.
Trump endorsed Democrats who he wants to see lose in order to allow their opponents to attack them by claiming they are “Trump endorsed.”
One of the Democrats endorsed by Donald Trump was Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who he referred to by her nickname of “AOC.”
“We need a few more AOCs in Congress, if we’re being completely honest. Many people are saying that she should consider going blonde, and after seeing that picture, I have to agree. Take it from me, Alexandria, blondes have more fun!” Trump wrote in his endorsement.

Of course, Trump referred to Ocasio-Cortez as “AOC” to get under the left-wing Congresswoman’s skin.
In October of 2020, Ocasio-Cortez released a series of tweets complaining about Republicans referring to her as “AOC.”
I wonder if Republicans understand how much they advertise their disrespect of women in debates when they consistently call women members of Congress by nicknames or first names while using titles & last names when referring to men of = stature. Women notice. It conveys a lot.
AOC is a name given to me by community & the people. Y’all can call me AOC. Government colleagues referring to each other in a public or professional context (aka who don’t know me like that) should refer to their peers as ‘Congresswoman,’ ‘Representative,’ etc. Basic respect 101.
Donald Trump knows that Ocasio-Cortez is expected to cruise to victory in her Primary.
But Trump likes to get under the skin of left-wing Democrats.
And there is no harm in him having a little fun at the expense of far-Left Democrats like Ocasio-Cortez.
Trump also used his joke endorsement to elevate Ocasio-Cortez socialist agenda to the forefront of the political debate by highlighting her support for the Green New Deal.
At a time when gas prices are already sky high, the Green New Deal would shoot them up even higher by crippling the American fossil fuel industry.
This is a debate Republicans would love to have front and center with Democrats this fall.
And Donald Trump’s mock endorsement could help push Ocasio-Cortez’s support for the Green New Deal to center stage in America.
