- Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez roasted Kellyanne Conway on Twitter on Wednesday.
- The call-out came after Conway refused to resign from the board of visitors for the US Air Force Academy.
- On Wednesday, the Biden administration asked several Trump holdovers to resign from military school boards.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted at former Trump White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, “Don’t let the fascist victim complex hit you on the way out,” after Conway refused to resign from the board of visitors for the US Air Force Academy on Wednesday.
Earlier in the day, the White House Office of Presidential Personnel sent letters to former members of the Trump administration asking them to relinquish their positions on advisory and visitor’s boards for the US Military Academy, the US Naval Academy, and the US Air Force Academy. Those who did not resign would be given the boot.
Those asked to step down included Conway, former press secretary Sean Spicer, and former National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, as well as others.
In response, Conway posted a letter on Twitter, addressed to President Joe Biden, where she stated that she is not resigning from her position on the board of visitors for the US Air Force Academy.
“I’m not resigning, but you should,” Conway signed off in her letter.

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez quote-tweeted Conway and responded to her rejection letter.
“A predictable, if not unfortunate, outcome. Clinging onto vestiges of power against the people’s will is kind of your /Trump’s / the GOP’s thing.” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.
“When you’re fired, don’t let the fascist victim complex hit you on the way out,” she added.

Conway was a controversial member of Donald Trump’s administration until she left, citing family obligations, in August of 2020.
