Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a radically progressive New Yorker who not long ago warned the nation only has a few years left because of climate change, recently attended a high-dollar society event wearing a dress with “Tax the Rich” emblazoned across her back and posterior.

Now a Colorado congresswoman who’s known for her conservative ideals and gun-toting lifestyle – the bar she ran before entering Congress was called “Shooters Grill” – has responded.

With her “Let’s go Brandon” message on her own dress.

Fox News explained Boebert was mocking Cortez’ for her appearance at the pricey Met Gala in September.

But Boebert, of “Let’s go Brandon,” explained, “It’s not a phrase, it’s a movement.”

Fox News reported Boebert’s office said she posed for the photo with former President Donald Trump at his Mar-a-Lago resort recently.

Boebert, Fox News reported, has been a constant critic of Democrats and their efforts to spend trillions and ignore crises like the Afghanistan pullout and the southern border.

“American people aren’t buying” Biden’s plans, she said.

Boebert has been unrelenting in her criticism of Biden and Democrats. Online, she told consumers, “If you’re even able to find a turkey for Thanksgiving this year, it’s going to be the most expensive one you’ve ever bought thanks to Biden’s inflation crisis. This is what happens when the guy running the country has stuffing where his brain should be.”

And, “Joe Biden’s vaccine mandates violate the constitutional rights of Americans.”

And, “Do. Not. Comply.”

Fox has explained, “The meme of ‘Let’s go, Brandon’ took the country by storm after an NBC reporter mistakenly used the phrase to describe a NASCAR crowd that was chanting ‘F— Joe Biden.’ Since then, the phrase has become a popular way of playfully expressing displeasure with the Biden administration.”

The theme has spawned T-shirts, coffee mugs and a chart-topping rap song.

The phrase has been a trigger for liberals, with one ex-FBI agent claiming the words are the same as publicly declaring support for ISIS and NBC contacting the Secret Service because of the perceived “threat.”

One legacy media journalist was angered when a pilot reportedly used the phrase, and a member of Congress ended his floor speech with the phrase.

American people, by large numbers, not only recognize the phrase and know what it means, but believe it is an appropriate way of expressing their feelings.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, becoming more and more of a player in national politics, also recently slapped a new nickname on the White House run by Joe Biden.

“The Brandon administration.”

And the crowd at an election integrity news conference on Wednesday erupted in cheers.

DeSantis was citing the indications that there is trouble in America’s elections.

“If you look at all the things that are going on, you see Big Tech, you see the corporate media — although they weren’t too happy with Virginia last night. If you look at that. If you look at what’s going on with some of the big corporations with their woke agenda,” he said.

It was just hours earlier that Glenn Youngkin, a Republican, had been declared the next governor of Virginia, beating longtime Washington insider Democrat Terry McAuliffe.

“When you look at the Biden — when you look at the Brandon administration,” DeSantis said.

The energized crowd erupted, cheering for a long period before the “Let’s go Brandon” chant started.

Eventually someone whistled the crowd to give the podium back to DeSantis.
