As Scope News reported, U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri spoke of U.S. Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, saying she was “a little confused why she’s the thing” and calling the New York democratic socialist “a bright shiny new object.”

Ocasio-Cortez responded on Twitter, questioning McCaskill’s criticism as well as her more centrist policy positions.

“Not sure why fmr Sen. McCaskill keeps going on TV to call me a ‘thing’ and ‘shiny object,’ but it’s pretty disappointing,” she tweeted.”

She went on to point out that “McCaskill promised she’d ‘100% back Trump up’ on his anti-immigrant rhetoric & lost” while “almost all progressive ballot issues won” in Missouri.
