New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is whining about her sudden celebrity and how it effects her privacy.
In in the vein she compared herself to the Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle, the wife of Prince William, who thanked someone for asking how she was this week.
“’Thank you for asking, bc not many people have asked if I’m ok,’” Ocasio-Cortez said, quoting the Duchess.
“Sudden prominence is a very dehumanizing experience. There’s a part of your life that you lose, & it later dawns on you that you’ll never get it back
“The people who treat you like a human make all the difference,” she said in the tweet on Saturday.
“Thank you for asking, bc not many people have asked if I’m ok.”

“Look, any woman especially when they are pregnant you’re really vulnerable and so that was made really challenging, and then when you have a newborn – you know,” Markle said.
“And especially as a woman, it’s a lot. So you add this on top of just trying to be a new mom or trying to be a newlywed it’s, well…” she said.
“Also thank you for asking, because not many people have asked if I’m OK. But it’s a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes,” Markle said.
But it was the loss of her privacy and her comparing herself to the Duchess that brought mockery on Rep. Ocasio-Cortez.
I think I can speak on behalf of every person whom has ever experienced poverty or homelessness when I say “boo hoo, harden up princess” … seriously, you have problems other people would die to exchange with their own.

Don’t seek fame if you can’t handle it.

Give it a rest.
You love the limelight, as any misguided narcissist would.
You should have been an actress. The hypocrisy and double standards suits you perfectly.
