Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made an unfortunate slip during a campaign stop with Sen. Bernie Sanders on behalf of Kansas Democratic Congressional candidate Brent Welder Friday.
“Hello everybody,” Occasio-Cortez said on a video posted to Sanders’ Twitter account Friday evening. “I’m so excited to be hopping on here on Senator Sanders’ account. We’re here in Kansas City to rally for Brent Welder. We’re gonna flip this seat red in November.”
Welder is running against GOP incumbent Kevin Yoder in Kansas’s 3rd congressional district.

Did Ocasio-Cortez mean flip a Red seat to Blue, or did she mean flip the Congressional seat Red, as in Communist Red? You be the judge.
Either way, Twitter was amused:
“We’re going to flip this seat red in November.”
Not sure if gaffe or Freudian slip https://t.co/91QBTZMbPj
