Instead she shot back, tweeting, "New party, who dis?"

CNBC has reached out to Ocasio-Cortez for comment.

Meanwhile, Politico ran an article today claiming "Exasperated Democrats try to rein in Ocasio-Cortez", for which AOC had yet another ideal response, not just shutting down the sentiment but also solidifying her nerd cred for the foreseeable future.

"I'm sure Ms. Cortez means well, but there's nearly an outstanding rule: Don't attack your own people", Representative Emmanuel Cleaver (D., Mo.) told Politico.

She says the fine, first reported by the New York Daily News, has been paid. "She's controversial", Lieberman continued.

They both unseated a fellow Democrat and share Puerto Rican roots.

Lieberman said Thursday that she's too "left-left" to help the Democratic Party be a sustainable political powerhouse.

In a comparison that Ocasio-Cortez would surely hate, politicos have pointed out that the NY rep. has "Trumpian" tendencies. "The honeymoon between the voters that you represent and yourself could be a short one".

Her appointment also will give new committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters, D-Calif., an important ally. "She doesn't understand how the place works yet".

Her new chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, told supporters during a November conference call that 'we gotta primary folks'.

The Politico report said some Democrats compare Ocasio-Cortez' prolific use of Twitter to President Trump's regular posts on social media.

Ocasio-Cortez is a self-proclaimed socialist democrat who has claimed higher taxes and wealth distribution are needed.
