Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., on Thursday criticized President Donald Trump for referring to her by the nickname “AOC,” which she said is for the “community & the people” to use.

“If someone told me 3 years ago, while I was waitressing to help my family stay afloat, that in a few short years an unhinged President of the United States would be repeatedly saying my name at the 2020 debate, I would’ve brought them some water and told them to sober up,” the congresswoman tweeted late Thursday, following the debate between Trump and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.

“I wonder if Republicans understand how much they advertise their disrespect of women in debates when they consistently call women members of Congress by nicknames or first names while using titles & last names when referring to men of = stature,” she added. “Women notice. It conveys a lot.”

Ocasio-Cortez concluded, “AOC is a name given to me by community & the people. Y’all can call me AOC. Government colleagues referring to each other in a public or professional context (aka who don’t know me like that) should refer to their peers as ‘Congresswoman,’ ‘Representative,’ etc. Basic respect 101.”
