Hasn’t the world of politics been entertaining lately? Have you kept your popcorn handy? I also recommend wrapping some Doritos in lunch meat — it’s a nice DIY combo.

As you’re enjoying your snacks, I’ve got a bit more entertainment to toss your way.

That’s right — there’s more fighting to be viewed from your cozy seat.

The contenders? In one corner: She wants to control all products and means of production, which makes her the ruler and you the ruled…I give you 29-year-old Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. And facing her today is the Big Man himself, billionaire rap icon (here and here) Donald J. Trump.

On Sunday, the D man tweeted the following:

“So interesting to see ‘Progressive’ Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run. Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!”

Yep — Trump was feelin’ reeeal tweety.

And, as Yahoo News was quick to point out:

The nativist rhetoric, “go back to your country,” is often used in racist, xenophobic and Islamophobic attacks, including a recent hate crime in New York City last week in which a Hispanic woman was attacked and told, “You’re here taking jobs from Americans.”

Alexandria — who seems downright psyched about the notion of words endlessly firing from her mouth — snapped back.

Here she goes. Give ‘er room, folks:

“Mr. President, the country I ‘come from,’ & the country we all swear to, is the United States. But given how you’ve destroyed our border with inhumane camps, all at a benefit to you & the corps who profit off them, you are absolutely right about the corruption laid at your feet. You are angry because you don’t believe in an America where I represent New York 14, where the good people of Minnesota elected @IlhanMN, where @RashidaTlaib fights for Michigan families, where @AyannaPressley champions little girls in Boston.”

And that isn’t all he’s angry about, apparently. He’s also mad that America believes everyone has a right to healthcare:

“You are angry because you can’t conceive of an America that includes us. You rely on a frightened America for your plunder. You won’t accept a nation that sees healthcare as a right or education as a #1 priority, especially where we’re the ones fighting for it. Yet here we are.”

AOC can never be accused of acting as if anyone knows more than she. Experience, schmexperience. Age is arbitrary (here), and cow farts are the devil (here).

As for Trump’s “plunder,” what is his violent and dishonest acquisition of property as president?

Not sure, but she ain’t skeered:

“But you know what’s the rub of it all, Mr. President? On top of not accepting an America that elected us, you cannot accept that we don’t fear you, either. You can’t accept that we will call your bluff & offer a positive vision for this country. And that’s what makes you seethe.”

Her “positive vision” is for her as Congresswoman — a position not encumbered by term limits — to take away all choice of options and price comparison, via a little thing the Nazis liked to called “socialism.”

Will she succeed? Only time will tell. As for now, the Twitterfights continue. And the cacophony of derision coming from Washington is sure to increase as we all march toward 2020 insanity. Stay tuned, keep Orville Redenbacher close, and prepare for a whole lot more of the Greatest Show on Earth.

Or the goofiest.
