Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) lashed out at Ivanka Trump over the weekend, lecturing the first daughter about career qualifications. . .
Ocasio-Cortez criticized Ivanka after French President Emmanuel Macron’s office released video showing Ivanka conversing with world leaders, including Macron, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and British Prime Minister Theresa May, the New York Post reported. . .
It may be shocking to some, but being someone’s daughter actually isn’t a career qualification.
It hurts our diplomatic standing when the President phones it in & the world moves on.
The US needs our President working the G20. Bringing a qualified diplomat couldn’t hurt either. https://t.co/KCZMXJ8FD9

However, because Ivanka is a White House senior adviser — albeit unpaid — who routinely engages in diplomatic work on the president’s behalf, she also mingled with world leaders at the summit in Japan. . .
Critics of Ocasio-Cortez noted that questioning Ivanka’s career qualifications is ironic given that prior to her election to Congress last year, Ocasio-Cortez worked as a bartender.
“Being the daughter of a billionaire and President of the United States is a hell of a lot better qualification than being a socialist bartender,” one person told AOC in response.

But somehow serving beer is a qualification to have a career in politics.

It may be shocking to some, but winning a Congressional election isn't a guarantee that someone is qualified to be a member of Congress. Some really should stick to serving drinks.
