The spokesman for liberal freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., is in hot water after posting an expletive-laden tweet at his boss' challenger.

According to the New York Post, Corbin Trent tweeted at Rich Valdes, a conservative who works as an associate producer for the Mark Levin Show. Valdes said earlier this week that he plans to run against Ocasio-Cortez in the 2020 election.

"Yo @RichValdes what in the actual f**k makes you think you're entitled to a debate with AOC," Trent wrote. "Pro tip: stalking her at a parade ain't gonna make it any more likely to happen."

Trent later deleted the tweet, as he confirmed to the Post. He was referencing a near run-in between Ocasio-Cortez and Valdes at Sunday's National Puerto Rican Day Parade.Valdes said he went over to talk with Ocasio-Cortez as she walked the route and shook hands with supporters, but that she sprinted across the street after she spotted him waiting.

"She literally ran!" Valdes said.

Trent confirmed on Thursday that he posted and then deleted his tweet.

"I did indeed send that. I did indeed delete it. It didn't seem that helpful," he said.

"I regret that so many people right from presidential candidates to right-wing commentators to random people that start organizations think that they're entitled to people's time. I think she's spending a ton of time in the district talking about what she's doing, talking about why she's doing it, and making a case for her policies."

Valdes posted a video of the near-encounter on his Twitter feed.
