Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called White House press secretary Sarah Sanders a phony in a tweet to Sanders’ dad, previous Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, after he tweeted to scold the “Democratic Socialist” for comparing her election to Congress to the 1969 moon landing.
” Ocasio-Cortez compares her election to moon landing. Huh?” Huckabee tweeted, referring to the remarks Ocasio-Cortez made in a speech. “Huge difference. Moon landing was LUNAR, not LOONEY; Moon landing done by ppl who understood what they were doing … those who elected someone who believed there were 3 branches of Congress did NOT”:

Ocasio-Cortez responded on Twitter by saying that a nonrenewable fuel source America would take the same determination that the area expedition milestone took. She then knocked Huckabee’s daughter.
” A Green New Deal will take a level of ambition development on the scale of the moon landing,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “We have actually been done it before, and can do it once again.”
” Leave the false statements to Sarah Huckabee,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “She’s much better at it.”
” Likewise, you haven’t been a Guv of any state for 10 years now,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote:
A Green New Deal will take a level of aspiration development on the scale of the moon landing. We have actually been done it previously, and can do it again.
Leave the incorrect declarations to Sarah Huckabee. She’s better at it.
Also, you have not been a Guv of any state for 10 years now. https://t.co/R7q5CkMw8Y

The Daily Mail reported that Ocasio-Cortez made the moon landing remarks at a press conference by the Sunshine Motion, an environment change advocacy group.
” We’ve done what we believed was difficult,” Ocasio-Cortez stated.
” We went to the moon. We amazed the nation. We developed civil liberties. We enfranchised the country. We dig deep, and we did it. We did it when nobody else thought that we could. That’s what we did when many people won an election this year,” Ocasio-Cortez stated.
” Ocasio-Cortez is campaigning for what she terms a Green New Deal, which would involve ‘transitioning the United States to a carbon-free, 100-percent renewable resource system, and a totally up-to-date electrical grid by 2035,'”Newsweek reported.
The Mail also noted that there are 214,750 registered Democrat citizens in Ocasio-Cortez’s district, and fewer than 28,000 cast ballots in the primary election where she vied with longtime New york city Rep. Joe Crowley.
