Former House Speaker Paul Ryan revealed that he offered advice to New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez – who promptly ignored it.

The Republican politician revealed the little anecdote during a dinner in Janesville, Wisconsin.

Recalling the moment he tried to offer a “few little tips” to the 29-year-old Congresswoman, he said: “I talked to her, AOC, everybody calls her AOC.”

She’s the youngest person now there and I gave her just a few little tips on just being a good member of Congress, new.

Ryan had been elected to the House when he was 28 years old.“I don’t think she really listened to a thing I said,” He concluded, laughing.

And what had been the former presidential candidate’s advice?

Take it easy, just watch things for a while, don’t ruffle, you know, see how it works first.

Instead of doing that, Alexandria-Cortez has been unapologetic in her thorough examination of Michael Cohen’s Senate hearing, in trying to push through her Green Deal, and holding all her critics to account.
