Although she gained much praise, Ocasio-Cortez took to Twitter to dissuade claims that she had only "won for 'demographic reasons.'" The Democratic socialist is competing in New York's 14th district, which includes the eastern Bronx and part of Queens.

Ocasio-Cortez quickly fired back.

"No person in American should be too poor to live", she said.

"They made a choice in one district", Pelosi said.

The right-wing host tried to discredit Ocasio-Cortez's message that has sparked enthusiasm among left-leaning voters.

While the picture of the Yorktown Heights home is indeed the one Ocasio-Cortez grew up in, Cardillo incorrectly stated that she went to Brown University. It was significant not only because she toppled a longtime leader of the Queens political machine and the fourth-ranking Democrat in the House of Representatives, but because she is a member of the Democratic Socialists of America. While living in the Bronx, she founded Brook Avenue Press, an independent publishing house for books that present the Bronx in a positive light.
