Apparently attacking children in the media wasn’t just limited to Covington Catholic High Schoolers. Dem Rep. Nydia Velazquez is looking to turn it into a trend by going after 16-year-old CJ Pearson on Twitter.
The young man made a relatively benign comment following President Trump’s State of the Union address. He tweeted how Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez seemed to be distracted for the duration of the speech.
“The woman” turned out to be Velasquez. Not being recognizable by today’s youth seems to have set the congresswoman off as she tweeted back this foreboding reply.
Twitter didn’t take long to react, posting over 22,000 replies at the time of this writing and a mere 7,800 likes. With most of the replies being in favor of Pearson.
Many replies defiantly pointed out that the public should never “fear” their elected officials or how political youth is the future of the nation and not an out of touch congresswoman.
But Pearson’s own reply was probably the best and most promising.
