Thumbs down Socialist Ocasio-Cortez paid near $300 on her hairdo...

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is firing back at critics who tried to shame her for paying nearly $300 for a haircut and lowlights at a Washington, D.C., salon last month.

On Wednesday, the Washington Times reported that the freshman congresswoman was charged $80 for a cut and another $180 for lowlights at Last Tangle Salon, estimating that a 20 percent tip would have set her back another $52. The article included a quote from Richard Manning, president of Americans for Limited Government, accusing Ocasio-Cortez of profligate spending.

"AOC is the Eva Peron of American politics," Manning told the paper, referencing the late Argentine first lady. 'She preaches socialism while living the life of the privileged."

Ocasio-Cortez's critics also pounced on the Times report and accused the Democrat of being a hypocrite for splashing out on her hair while taking a stand against income inequality. The Times also contrasted her cut and color to Jeff Sessions's reportedly thrifty trim, and suggested she should have saved money by visiting the House barber.

"She could get a cheap haircut and give the rest away to those in need," read one complaint on Twitter.

Now the congresswoman, who turns 30 next week, is pushing back against the uproar. On Thursday, she interrupted her visit to Copenhagen for the C40 World Mayors Summit to call out the "right-wing" for fixating on her hair rather than tackling poverty.

She credited Democratic socialist policies for advancing "prosperity for working people," sassily adding that critics are "just mad we look good doing it."

'Bout what I'd expect from a liberal socialist.

She's right about prosperity under socialism BUT not who prospers... she is a textbook social elitist... communism benefits the ruling party only! Problem for her this is America so we have regular elections... problem for us is she has aptly taken advantage of a nest [I mean district] full of idiots... she is a very scary useful idiot that can do damage...
