Celebrity Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) attempted to convince her social media fans that Thursday's Washington DC tornado warning was linked to "Climate Change" but ended up getting schooled by a meteorologist.

After attempting to blame the weather on a "climate crisis," Ocasio-Cortez was promptly shredded by renowned meteorologist Ryan Maue, who accused the radical New York lawmaker of not understanding "the difference between weather and climate."

Following a brief, and rare, tornado warning inside the Beltway, the freshman congresswoman began by sharing a short video on Instagram showing the conditions outside, as heavy rains drenched the region.

“There's people stuck outside. We need to get them out,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

“This is crazy."

The Green New Deal advocate then shared a story published by PBS in March questioning whether climate change makes tornadoes worse, putting emphasis on a quote from the piece that read, "Rather than lie squarely in the Great Plains, America’s tornadoes appear to be sliding into the Midwest and Southeast."

According to Fox News, the tornado warning followed a devastating tornado in Missouri's capital of Jefferson City the night before.

"Tornadoes are challenging to link to climate change links due to their nature (geographically, limited, acute patterns, how they form, etc.)," Ocasio-Cortez told her followers as she reviewed the article.

"But we DO know that tornadoes HAVE been changing.

"They are no longer being limited to the Great Plains, and are shifting to other regions of the country."

“The climate crisis is real y’all … guess we’re at casual tornadoes in growing regions of the country,” she later wrote on Instagram.

Meteorologist Ryan Maue, though, argued that she was confusing climate change with "weather" in the capital region.

After initially seeing AOC's claims on soclial media, Maue said he naturally assumed the posts must have been "fake" and that he has no idea what she means by "casual tornadoes."

"The Congresswoman @AOC does not know the difference between weather and climate," wrote Maue.

"Let's try an easy analogy: Weather is what outfit you wear heading out the door. Climate is your closet wardrobe."
