Fox Nation host Tomi Lahren chose to dress up “as the thing that scares me most” for Halloween: Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York.
“I’m not afraid of ghouls, ghosts, zombies or political incorrectness,” she wrote in the Instagram post below. “I am far more terrified AOC was actually elected to the United States Congress. Talk about a haunted House.”
Calling out Ocasio-Cortez as “the Democratic Dimwit Darling,” Lahren, as you can see, was holding copies of “The Communist Manifesto” and “The Green New Deal” in her post, which included the #socialismkills hashtag.
While her Instagram fanbase, which totals 1.6 million followers, mostly cheered the outfit choice, it didn’t seem to go over very well on Twitter. As one commenter said, “You’re the best at being the worst!”
Here’s how some others reacted:
The two have had a beef before, of course. Lahren earlier this year criticized Ocasio-Cortez, a frequent target of the right, claiming she’s successful on Twitter /zigman2/quotes/203180645/composite TWTR -2.46% (fact check: she is), but not in real life.
That didn’t go over so well , either.
