Congresswoman, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a star to many for not only promoting progressive causes and policies in the United States but also being incredibly good at social media.

Whether it's Twitter or Instagram there is rarely a day that goes past where the Democrat doesn't post something that sparks delight amongst her supporters.

On Saturday she did a Q and A session on Instagram where anyone could literally ask her anything, including, as if would appear Trump supporters.

In one question she was asked 'are you ready to bartend again after November 3?' implying that she would lose her seat in Congress and have to go back to her former job in a bar.

Surprisingly AOC said that she was but did it with all the sass and wit that we have come to expect of her.

This is what she said:

I'm ready to bartend any day of the week because I am not a classist who believes that a person's job is reflective of their human worth. 

And fwiw my colleagues in restaurants were oftentimes much better people than many of the Congressmen I now work with. Smarter too. 

That wasn't the only eye-opening answer that the 30-year-old gave. She was also asked for her thoughts on the Democratic National Convention which took place this week.

Ocasio-Cortez, who gave a short speech and endorsed Bernie Sanders for the nomination (it is a tradition for more than one candidate to be nominated at the event), gave a lengthy answer where she called the convention successful but felt that it could have been improved in other areas such as hearing from a more diverse set of Democrats such as Julian Castro, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib before diplomatically concluding that "not every disagreement is a fight."

The Republican National Convention is due to start next week with key speakers set to include Donald Trump and most of his family, Mike Pence, Nikki Haley, Kevin McCarthy, the couple who pointed guns at Black Lives Matter protesters in St Louis and Nick Sandmann of the Covington Catholic High School.
