The next time you criticize AOC (and let's be honest, that will be soon), just remember it's hard being a superstar!

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) told HuffPost in an interview this week that since being elected to Congress, she doesn't "get to be a human." She also said she relates to Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, who recently revealed her own personal struggle dealing with immense fame and no privacy in a television interview.

The freshman congresswoman sympathized with Markle on Twitter:

Ocasio-Cortez, who spends a large amount of time sharing her thoughts and personal life on Twitter, told HuffPost, "Sometimes I just want to be a human being. And you don't get to be a human any more. Everything you do from wearing sweatpants to the bodega to getting a haircut ― every personal decision you make for yourself is never going to be yours any more."
