10.) Stalinist Show Trial for Donald Trump Jr.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had the bright idea to threaten Donald Trump Jr. after he posted this triggering meme.
I have noticed that Junior here has a habit of posting nonsense about me whenever the Mueller investigation heats up.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) December 7, 2018
Please, keep it coming Jr - it’s definitely a “very, very large brain” idea to troll a member of a body that will have subpoena power in a month.
Have fun! https://t.co/oQ6MsdJYCk
Stalin would be loving this.
Her obvious threat is prohibited by the House Ethics Committee. Twitter responded with righteous fury.
So you stalk @DonaldJTrumpJr on Twitter and are now threatening to abuse Congressional subpoena power for a personal vendetta if he continues to point out the stupid things you say? How very progressive. https://t.co/y83M83NH55— Derek Hunter (@derekahunter) December 7, 2018
So, um, if he trolls you on media, then you're going to use the power of the government to come after him? That's not fascist or anything. https://t.co/82hOJp39Ua— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) December 7, 2018

My dislike for Jr is well-documented, but threatening a private citizen with a Congressional subpoena because he made a meme you don't like is one hell of a hot take. https://t.co/urxbAaSIbA— Joe Walsh (@WalshFreedom) December 7, 2018
When will these three learn to stay out of trouble? Hopefully, not before 2020!
