Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) was ridiculed on Friday for allowing her social media account to be baited into a bizarre debate using pizza coupons as an analogy.

The account mocked Ocasio-Cortez for the implosion of a deal for Amazon to build a headquarters in New York City and create approximately 15,000 jobs. Ocasio-Cortez criticized the deal for the billions in tax breaks the company was seeking, but many ridiculed her for implying that the money existed apart from the deal and could be used elsewhere.

The deal was expected to garner $30 billion in tax revenue in exchange for $3 billion in tax breaks.

The anonymous troll account made up an analogy to mock Ocasio-Cortez, and it received thousands of retweets.

Ocasio-Cortez clearly took umbrage at the joke being made at her expense because she fired back with a serpentine attempt to rewrite the analogy to her benefit:

Whether her bizarre all caps pizza coupon analogy is a reasonable representation of the tax break negotiations between New York City and Amazon is left up to the reader.

Here's the latest on the Amazon HQ deal implosion:
