The loogie-launching leftist who spat in the face of an NYPD cop during a November protest was arraigned on a desk appearance ticket Friday.

NYU graduate Devina Singh, who once worked in the office of Congressman Jerrold Nadler, is charged with obstruction of governmental administration, harassment and resisting arrest stemming from the fluid situation.

The 24-year-old appeared on a video monitor in Manhattan Criminal Court wearing a prim turtleneck and red lipstick. Judge Nicholas Moyne ordered her to return for trial Feb. 22.

A maskless Singh alleged barked “F–k you, fascist” inches from Sgt. Joshua Gregory’s face before making her oral argument, which was captured on video by a Post reporter.

Another officer tried to walk her to a prisoner transport van, but she allegedly “went completely limp and dropped her body to the ground,” according to a criminal complaint. Two cops had to pick her up and hold her, the complaint says.

The resident of otherwise sleepy Schwenksville, Pennsylvania, later told The Post in a brief interview that she only spit in the cop’s face after his colleagues attacked protesters.

Prior to her Nov. 4 arrest, Singh had joined a group of unruly demonstrators who spent the evening clashing with cops in the West Village, interrogating outdoor diners about their lack of activism, and setting garbage cans on fire. Nearly 60 protesters were arrested.

The “Phlegm Fatale” was previously busted on obstruction and resisting arrest charges during a September protest in Manhattan after she jumped on the back of an NYPD captain.

She showcased her achievement on Instagram, posting a photo of herself in cuffs and writing, “im so f—— mad … probs bc behind me (white shirt) is Deputy Inspector Elias J. Nikas AKA Little Dick Nik.”

She was also charged with unlawful assembly during a Brooklyn march in October, police said.

Her lawyer, Gideon Oliver, didn’t immediately return a request for comment.
