Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Hanukkah greeting includes comparison of Trump to ruler of the Seleucid Empire

Soon-to-be Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted this Hanukkah greeting tonight, including a “beautiful reminder” from Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg that “We know now, better than ever, that we have to make the miracles ourselves”:

The only problem is that this “beautiful reminder” is actually the last tweet in a thread that compared President Trump to Antiochus IV Epiphanes, the ruler of the Seleucid Empire whom the Maccabees revolted against in the Hanukkah story. Get it? Trump is a tyrant, too!

She’s really not having a good day.
