AOC has a short message for fellow Queens guy: Nice try.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-Queens) clapped back at President Trump after he sought to use her support for impeachment as evidence that he is winning the 2020 race to the White House.

“You may fool the rest of the country, but I’ll call your bluff any day of the week,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote.

Translation: Meet me on the 7 train platform and we’ll sort this out this whole Russia collusion thing once and for all.

The lefty firebrand triggered Trump by appearing on a Sunday morning news show as a voice of the pro-impeachment Democratic left.

Along with ticking off a laundry list of legal reasons why Trump should be impeached, she mentioned a big political one: POTUS could win next year despite all the wrongdoing.

Trump jumped on that comment to suggest that Democrats are using impeachment to avoid facing him in an election.

“That is the only reason they play the impeach card,” he wrote, in a rare spelling error-free Tweet.
