CJ Pearson, a 16-year old black pro-Trump blogger, tweeted that the woman next to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez kept trying to look the other way as Trump gave his State of the Union speech. US Representative, Nydia Velazquez, a Democrat, wrote back, “I’m not “the woman sitting next to her”. “@AOC and I — and millions like us — are the future of this country. And you’re right to be afraid of us.” The Congresswoman now is facing backlash on Twitter for telling a kid that Americans should be afraid of Congress. Pearson, however, got it right when he replied: “Nydia, nothing about you nor [Ocasio-Cortez] scares me. It’s your policies — that jeopardize the stability of our nation and the future of my generation — that scare me,” -GEG

Democratic New York Rep. Nydia Velazquez told pro-Trump teen pundit CJ Pearson that “you’re right to be afraid of us” Tuesday after he referred to her as “the woman next to” Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in a tweet about the State of the Union address.

“Hi CJ Pearson, I’m not ‘the woman sitting next to her,’” Velazquez wrote on Twitter Tuesday night.  “[Ocasio-Cortez] and I — and millions like us — are the future of this country. And you’re right to be afraid of us. But you should learn my name.”

Pearson, 16, had joked on Twitter that “[Ocasio-Cortez] has been talking this entire speech and the woman next to her keeps trying to look the other way” during the State of the Union address Tuesday night.

Pearson responded to Velazquez’s remarks Wednesday.

“I’m sorry, Congresswoman, but as [President] Donald Trump said — socialism will NOT be the future of this country. And Nydia, nothing about you nor [Ocasio-Cortez] scares me. It’s your policies — that jeopardize the stability of our nation and the future of my generation — that scare me,” he wrote on Twitter.

Others weighed in on the interaction between the congresswoman and the high schooler.
