Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez stood out among a sea of women wearing white as a tribute to U.S. suffragists. At times she remained seated as others stood. And serious while others applauded. In fact, Ocasio-Cortez’s reaction to Trump’s speech Tuesday night was somber — and it prompted a debate on social media about her “sullen” appearance and the apparent condescension in telling a woman to smile. After the address, Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan wrote on Twitter that Ocasio-Cortez “had a rare bad night, looking not spirited, warm and original as usual but sullen, teenaged and at a loss.” The comment drew scorn from some people on social media — including from Ocasio-Cortez, who clapped back against critics. “Why should I be ‘spirited and warm’ for this embarrassment of a #SOTU?” she responded. “Tonight was an unsettling night for our country. The president failed to offer any plan, any vision at all, for our future. "We’re flying without a pilot. And I‘m not here to comfort anyone about that fact.” Say what you want ... AOC is the fucking master of the clapback.
