Following a tweet in which former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee suggested U.S. Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez compared her midterm victory to the moon landing, the New York Democrat shot back with a post of her own.
He went on to jab the incoming congresswoman, describing the 1969 feat as “lunar, not loony.”
Ocasio-Cortez clarified that she meant a “Green New Deal will take a level of ambition + innovation on the scale of the moon landing,” going on to take Huckabee to task for his comment.
“Leave the false statements to Sarah Huckabee,” she said, referring to his daughter and current White House press secretary. “She’s much better at it.”
