Far-left representative Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and the conservative founder of Barstool Sports Dave Portnoy went to war on Twitter on Tuesday over the question of unions. As The New York Post reports:
Fiery left-wing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy tangled on Twitter Tuesday over organized labor in a clash of the social-media titans.
“Hey @aoc welcome to thunder dome,” Portnoy, a well-known right-leaning agitator, challenged the New York congresswoman. “Debate me.”

Portnoy threw down the gauntlet after AOC injected herself into a battle Portnoy was waging on another front over the recent formation of a union by workers at The Ringer, a sports site in competition with Barstool Sports…
She did not immediately respond to Portnoy directly, but doubled down in a follow-uptweet, writing, “Bosses don’t wield all the power. Workers have plenty — yet many don’t know it!”
It appears AOC is once again over her head. Her extreme Socialist policies simply aren’t realistic and, more importantly, the American people just don’t want them.
