When former President Donald Trump delivered his second State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress at the US Capitol on February 5, 2019, Democratic Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia stood up to applaud the-then POTUS while a representative from his own party, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, who was sitting behind him, remained in her seat, scowling from behind. The photo quickly became infamous at the time due to the expression on AOC's face, giving away her disgust. The snap had gone viral then and once again has gone viral recently after she reposted it.

When the picture originally went viral, and she was criticized for her glare, AOC defended her expression saying, she doesn’t have an “obligation” to “smile” at people doing “hurtful things,” no doubt alluding to Manchin. After Manchin voted against President Joe Biden’s  “Build Back Better” agenda, which is a roughly $2 trillion social-spending bill, an Instagram user sent a message to AOC reading, “Your glare at Manchin was *everything*.”

“I tried to warn y’all,” Ocasio-Cortez responded in text overlapping the infamous photo, posting it on her Instgram Stories. “So here’s your reminder that your smile is a gift and you are not obligated to give it to anybody or anything just to keep up appearances or make people feel comfortable when they are doing hurtful things,” she wrote. On the same post, AOC added, “The Wall Street Journal ran a whole column about how *I* was a misbehaved, scowling lady after this incident too.”

Not everyone was impressed by AOC's reposting the picture as many thought it was childish of her to do so. "Even the [email protected] She thinks what she and @CoriBush did about eviction moratorium is somehow different??? They used the exact same playbook every day. They didn't #forcethevote, so they simply made Manchin's betrayal easy to execute. Glaring is performative, like her dress." one of them said, while another noted, "She’s special needs…we might as well have 3rd graders running shit." A third added, "Is @AOC two years old or 3 years old?" One more noted, "Moronic, petulant, underdeveloped, child-woman."

A commenter tweeted, "AOC is glaring a Joe Manchin like my kids when they don’t get what they want." A person reacted with, "You can bet AOC knows Exactly where every camera angle is as soon as she walks in a room in order to 'perform' accordingly, a crying jag after voting 'Present' here an evil glare at Manchin there. AOC is trash."

'We cannot accept no for an answer'

After Manchin's announcement that he would not support Biden's spending bill, AOC took to Twitter and ranted against the senator. "When a handful of us in the House warned this would happen if Dem leaders gave Manchin everything he wanted 1st by moving BIF before BBB instead of passing together, many ridiculed our position," she tweeted. "Maybe they'll believe us next time. Or maybe people will just keep calling us naïve."

She continued: "Either way, we cannot accept no for an answer. Dem leadership - incl but not limited to the President himself and House Dem leadership - wrote a massive check on their credibility the night of the BIF vote in order to secure the votes they needed, *promising* passage of BBB to every member who brought up Manchin, they personally promised they had a solution & BBB would pass. It is simply not an option for Dem leaders to walk from BBB, voting rights, etc. They must find a way, just as they promised they would when we raised this inevitability."
