Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has found another way to go viral without making a real effort.

This week, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) took to Twitter where she asked her 3.5 million followers to help her out by suggesting a few good pieces of furniture and she got more than what she bargained for.

The popular Democrat tweeted: "Is Instagram still down? Bc after 2 months almost furnitureless in DC I am trying to take you all on the riveting adventure of getting: a chair 😆."

She added: "(Also, if you had to start a new apt from scratch, what would be the first 5 pieces of furniture/items you would get? Asking for me)."

In a matter of hours, Miss Ocasio-Cortez received over 10,000 comments, and a majority of them are hilarious.

Many predict that AOC's serious furniture question will lead to an entire segment on FOX News where Sean Hannity will be salivating over the fact that a Democrat needs a chair.

One of Ocasio-Cortez's followers named Ken E. Hal had this funny comment: “This is what’s wrong with Democrats. They want to take away a small percentage of money from billionaires so they can live it up by having a chair. Can’t they just stand?”

Another person jokingly added: “You’re telling me you got a seat in Congress before a seat to sit down on? Goals.”  

Multiple users told Ocasio-Cortez to have a sit-down with Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson who is an expert on the matter.

Carson made headlines a few months ago after he was caught spending over $31,000 on a dining set for his office -- he lied about the purchase and blamed his wife.
 
“Hannity’s whole show tonight is gonna be about your chair,” wrote user Shake Down.

While Ocasio-Cortez is using social media to shop for chairs, she is also claiming that society has a "Facebook problem" after the company briefly removed ads from presidential hopeful and Sen. Elizabeth Warren who is pushing for a breakup of massive tech giants.

Ocasio-Cortez said in a tweet: "Just because a monopoly business happens to be online, that doesn’t mean it’s good. Facebook may have its own problems, but it’s increasingly starting to look like our society (namely, our democracy) has a Facebook problem."

Do you think AOC is right or wrong to share all of this?
