Donald Trump has been skewered by the fine folk of the internet after labelling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a “wack job”.
The president, notoriously a “strong and stable genius” (his own words and almost nobody else’s) shared one his son’s tweet mocking an AOC fan in which Donald Trump Jr. commented:
Seems like a normal AOC supporter to me.

In a quote tweet, Trump inexplicably claimed:
AOC is a Wack Job!
In a response so perfect it could have been scripted by Billy Wilder, the congresswoman in question quote tweeted the president with her own analysis:
Better than being a criminal who betrays our country.

Bernie Sanders also responded declaring that it will be his pleasure to defeat him in the 2020 election.
It's going to be a real pleasure defeating you. https://t.co/L8TGcUYy4G — Bernie Sanders (@Bernie Sanders)
Naturally, people were keen to share their thoughts with Trump on the issue too and it's safe to say that branding someone a 'wack job' isn't the most presidential thing he has ever done.
@realDonaldTrump Nice way to speak about an elected official.
