Our main characters on Twitter yesterday were Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.
HAVING A GOOD ONE
DESANTIS: Conservatives celebrated the populist champion for his fiery takedown of communism during a speech in Miami Thursday, when he announced measures aimed at curbing Chinese espionage in Florida.
DESANTIS: “I reject socialism outright. I reject Marxism, Leninism, Communism, any of these -isms that have come out of a political theory that denies the worth of each and every individual.”

HAVING A BAD ONE
AOC: The socialist icon went viral in a bad way after suggesting in an Instagram video that “the burdens of capitalism” prevented young people from having children — and claiming the solution is more immigration.
