Former House Speaker Paul Ryan says he offered some advice to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez when she arrived in Washington — suggesting that she “take it easy” and “just watch things for a while” — but the freshman congresswoman wasn’t having it.

“I don’t think she really listened to a thing I said,” Ryan recalled at a dinner event in his hometown of Janesville, Wisconsin, on Tuesday night, according to the Janesville GazetteXtra.

The ex-speaker, who retired earlier this year, has been criticized by Ocasio-Cortez in the past. The New York lawmaker often gets compared to him, on account of them both being elected to Congress at age 28.
