So Tough : Ocasio-Cortez announces 'self-care' break before congressional session even starts




Please. "The girl from hedge fund country" (that's where she's from, Westchester County, not the Bronx as she said) is tired. She needs to take a break before the new Congressional session. She needs a trip to the spa. Poor thing. It must be so hard for her with all those softballs from the press. How, oh how has she made it this far? Life has been SO hard for her. It's been almost as hard as, as, Obama's.


You take care of yourself girl. You DESERVE it!


The 29-year-old progressive champion encouraged her followers to share their self-care regimens and followed up the post with a string of Instagram messages about how she had to give up her Zen lifestyle when she launched her congressional bid.
“Before the campaign, I used to practice yoga 3-4x/week, eat nutritiously, read and write for leisure,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote. “As soon as everything kicked up, that all went out the window. I went from doing yoga and making wild rice and salmon dinners to eating fast food for dinner and falling asleep in my jeans and makeup.”

Well, boo, you know what, hoo. Welcome to Washington. Also it's not very hard to eat rice and salmon. It takes 15 minutes. Don't give us that nonsense.
