Vandals defaced a cardboard cutout of New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Thursday night at a party hosted by a group of young conservatives on the sidelines of an annual political conference – writing the Spanish word for ‘idiot’ on her face.

Turning Point USA, an increasingly influential organization that rallies U.S. college students on the political right, hosted its ‘Americafest’ party at a restaurant near the site of the Conservative Political Action Conference.

Along with themed drinks – a vodka and soda water was called ‘Russia collusion’ and asking for ‘Mexico will pay for it’ got you a tequila sunrise – partygoers could help themselves to slices of bread from a ‘socialism bread line.’

The life-size cutout of Ocasio-Cortez, who describes herself as a democratic socialist, stood in front of the bread.

One of Turning Point’s slogans is ‘Socialism sucks.’

By night’s end, the cutout featured graffiti including the words ‘Annie Bronx’ on the cutout’s forehead and ‘pendeja’ on her cheek.

That word is Spanish slang for ‘moron’ or ‘idiot.’

On the bar menu, Ocasio-Cortez’s namesake cocktail was a juice box, a slap at the 29-year-old New Yorker for bringing liberal millennial sensibilities to Congress.

Social media images of the damage provided no clues to who put pen to corrugated plastic. Turning Point USA removed the cutout midway through the party after partygoers consumed all the bread.
