If you haven’t seen what’s going down between the comedy site Barstool Sports and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, then you’re missing out one of the greatest Twitter spats in history.

What makes it so great is the fact that Barstool Sports President Dave Portnoy isn’t just stopping at not backing down from AOC, he’s actively antagonizing her.

For backstory, the Twitter spat started when a pro-union journalist told Barstool Sports employees to reach out to him if they want help getting a unionization process started. Portnoy responded by tweeting out that if any of his employees DM this man, he’ll fire them on the spot.

He also made it clear that if they reached out to a lawyer looking to unionize these workers pro-bono, he’d do worse.

This was clearly all for the sake of humor, as Barstool employees aren’t at all looking to unionize. Portnoy was having fun getting a rise out of pro-union activist journalists and attorneys.

As we all know, though, humor isn’t exactly the left’s strong point, and the point of all this was clearly missed by the least humorous person on the planet, AOC. Taking to Twitter, she attempted to sic the mob on Portnoy while threatening him with the shadow of legal action.

Usually, at this point, people back down when it comes to responses to AOC. They fear the sudden mob that comes at them and the fact that AOC is crazy enough to mount some kind of movement against that person.

Portnoy, however, went full steam ahead and challenged AOC to a debate.

It’s beautiful.

They should have sent a poet.

Not only that, Portnoy continued to challenge any pro-union person who came at him on Twitter. It was fun to watch to say the least. You can see more at Louder with Crowder.

Now that you’re all caught up, we can fast forward to the present, where Portnoy is appearing on Fox News and calling AOC “O’Crazio” and lording it over her that while she can’t seem to raise a dime within her own district, her outrage toward him is filling up his coffers with record numbers.

Portnoy also renewed his request for AOC to debate him, which he doesn’t think is going to happen.

Hilariously, others have taken to trolling AOC over her attempts at intimidating a business leader. For instance, someone slapped a Barstool Sports sticker onto her office name placard.

While AOC’s mob can look intimidating, at the end of the day, it’s really just a lot of bluster. Portnoy seems to be one of the few business leaders to get this and has no trouble poking AOC and her regressive fans till they explode from the sheer outrage.

Perhaps we could all learn from Portnoy.
