Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., poked fun at Republican Sen. Thom Tillis on Monday after he revealed he named his dog after former President Theodore Roosevelt, the onetime founder of the Progressive Party.
Ocasio-Cortez responded to a photo of Tillis holding his dog, Theo, while speaking to reporters on Capitol Hill. The North Carolina senator said he chose the name because he names all of his dogs “after conservatives.”
The article goes on to state the following:
“He should name his next one Bull Moose,” Ocasio-Cortez quipped in response.

Several other Twitter users mocked Tillis for calling Theodore Roosevelt a conservative.
Fox News clarified that Roosevelt was a Republican during his two terms in the White House from 1901 to 1909, but after he lost his bid for the GOP presidential nomination in 1912, he formed the Bull Moose Party, also known as the Progressive Party.

“Theodore Roosevelt Was No Conservative
There’s a reason he left the GOP to lead the Progressive Party.” https://t.co/paNy0LD4aR

Oh, lord. Who’s going to tell him?
He was a conservationist, not a conservative.
“Roosevelt was a leader of the progressive movement and championed his “Square Deal” domestic policies…”https://t.co/dUO04Drwkk
