Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) referred to a pro-Trump caravan spotted in New York City as a “pileup of chumps.”
Photos and videos emerged over the weekend, showing ‘Trump trains” popping up across the nation. One such parade occurred over New York City’s Whitestone Bridge. Photos and videos show dozens of vehicles on the bridge with pro-America and pro-Trump flags:

Ocasio-Cortez responded to one of the videos, referring to the Trump supporters as “chumps.” Notably, Ocasio-Cortez has never publicly referred to the anti-Trump Black Lives Matter protesters, who frequently block traffic during their demonstrations, as “chumps”:

Earlier this month, Joe Biden (D) used the same word, “chumps,” to describe his opponents.
“I’ll work as hard for those who don’t support me as those who do, including those chumps with the microphone out there,” Biden said at a drive-in rally in Bucks County this month. He was apparently referencing the Trump supporters who gathered nearby his event, waving flags and honking their horns during his speech:

Several pro-Trump parades have been popping up across the country over the last week. Hundreds gathered for a “Trump train” parade in Greenbrier County, West Virginia, on Saturday. Footage shows similar scenes in Arizona, New Jersey, North Carolina, Utah, and California.

As seen two hours ago in Marin. Trump caravan 2 miles long headed south on 101 towards the Golden Gate. Glad I had my Biden shirt on. pic.twitter.com/jjHpmWLr9G
