DeSantis made the remarks at a political rally in Orange Park, according to the Huffington Post, which broke the story.

While joking around with a poster on Twitter, Ocasio-Cortez told that poster that "My identity has been exposed". The heavily edited clips were taken from a real interview on PBS's Firing Line show with Margaret Hoover, which Ocasio-Cortez had given a week earlier.

Corbin Trent, Ocasio-Cortez's communications director, said the primary win helped put Ocasio-Cortez on a national stage and that her victory speech on June 26 inspired people nationwide. She said Trump can't handle a girl from the Bronx. "Good Lord", DeSantis said in reference to the interview.

"Rep DeSantis, it seems you're confused as to 'whatever I am, '" Ocasio-Cortez wrote.
