Members of Congress; they’re just like us!
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is maintaining a residence in Washington DC and she needs help picking out some furniture.
So what did she decide to do? She reached out to her Twitter followers.
She has over 3 million of them. At least one of them has to have a good suggestion, right?
The Congresswoman decided to ask for suggestions in the wake of Facebook’s all-day outage yesterday, which also affected Instagram and WhatsApp.
She joked that the outage deprived her of the chance to “take you all on the riveting adventure of getting: a chair.”
Is Instagram still down? Bc after 2 months almost furnitureless in DC I am trying to take you all on the riveting adventure of getting: a chair 😆
(Also, if you had to start a new apt from scratch, what would be the first 5 pieces of furniture/items you would get? Asking for me)

People did respond to Ocasio-Cortez with furniture advice… but they came with their quips, too.
Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, ya’ll!
Ask Ben Carson. He can probably find you something really nice.

Paging Mr. Robert Mueller… and the towel boy.
Special Joint Committee on Towel Ownership … SJCTO does have a nice ring to it.
Full subpoena power?

Forget the furniture.
Just get puppies!
Give it time!
Just for fun, we’ll take a brief aside to entertain what Fox would say…
I can’t wait until Fox News publishes “AOC buys chair. Why does she hate trees?”

And now back to our regularly scheduled programming…
A bed, desk/lap desk, chair and ottoman. Also a cat. Because I love cats. They double as heating pads so technically appliances. XD

Damn those greedy Democrats!
This is what’s wrong with Democrats. They want to take away a small percentage of money from billionaires so they can live it up by having a chair. Can’t they just stand?

Chairs are socialism.
That sums up today’s lesson, kids.
