The debate between Dan Crenshaw and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez goes on. 

After Ocasio-Cortez brought up a proposal to tax the rich by 70%, Crenshaw has made various attempts to take shots at her and undermine her proposal. 

Just recently, Crenshaw made another statement aimed at Ocasio-Cortez, questioning her level of understanding of sports and taxes.

More specifically, he pointed out that he is familiar with politicians who have no understanding of sports, and on the other hand, ones who don’t understand taxes. 

However, according to Crenshaw, this is the first time he has found himself dealing with someone who lacks understanding in both areas.

The Republican Party rising star wrote: "Should someone propose a 70% tax on the Patriots so that NFL competition is more fair and equal? Asking for a friend."

This was in response to Ocasio-Cortez claiming that most NFL players would not even be affected by the proposed 70% tax rate, as their salaries fall below the margin that would be in effect. 

On the contrary, the taxation would be noticeably harsh on managers and other people in charge of those teams.

The New Yorker hit back with: "The average NFL salary is $2.1 million, so most players would never experience a 70% rate. The owners who refuse to hire Kaepernick would, though."

Many have responded to Crenshaw’s recent attack on Twitter, claiming that he is, in fact, the one who does not understand taxes and sports on a good enough level. 

The revenue sharing systems present in the NFL -- and other similar factors of the league -- were pointed out as arguments against Crenshaw. 

He did not respond to any of those statements directly and does not seem to have the desire to address them at this point. 

However, it is safe to assume that this was not his last word in the argument, and observers are likely going to see even more statements from his side when it comes to Ocasio-Cortez because the Twitter "fight" is good for the both of them in this era of hyper-partisan politics.

When it comes to social media, the self-proclaimed Socialist is a real champion. Her only real competition in this area might be President Donald Trump. 

Who is the winner of this social media debate?
