AOC mocks Ted Cruz over photo with Trump at Mar-a-Lago: They must be reminiscing about their ‘attempted coup’

This Tuesday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) posted a photo on Twitter of himself dining with Donald Trump at his Mar-a-Lago resort, saying that he had a “great dinner tonight” with the former president.

“He’s in great spirits!” Cruz wrote. “We spent the evening talking about working together to re-take the House & Senate in 2022.”

Seeing an opportunity for comedy, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) retweeted the photo and took a jab at the pair over what she sees is their shared role in sparking the riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan 6.

“Nothing like reminiscing about attempted coups over a bouquet of flowers,” she wrote.

Cruz was one of eight Republican Senators who voted against certifying the results of the 2020 election based on false claims of mass voter fraud.
