Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the youngest woman to ever be elected into US congress.
Her age and non-traditional background (she comes from a low-income family, she did not attend an Ivy League university and she has 'socialist' stamped on her party identification) makes her a politician for the people.
It also makes her a target, especially for Republicans.
This became self evident last week, when she was subject to abusive remarks made by Republican Representative Ted Yoho.
Following his lacklustre apology, she gave a scathing speech about the systemic sexism that led to his remarks. It went instantly viral.
And this isn't the first time she's clapped back in the best possible way.
Her responses to the steady line of attack has been one of offence, and her retorts both hit the mark and remain light-hearted.
Here are four of AOC's best, even before she was elected to Congress.

John Cardillo, a host of Newsmax’s America Talks Live took to Twitter to say that Ocasio-Cortez actually lived in a house in a ‘very nice area’ and concluded that she went to Brown University.
Both of these things attempted to poke a hole in Ocasio-Cortez’s consistent image of a woman who came from a working class background.
He was wrong. By a lot.
