Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is enjoying her 15 minutes of fame. Look, when her policies are given a thorough investigation her house of cards will publicly crumble.
This is what the Democrats do – they can turn even a winning position into a loser in ten seconds flat but when they start with a losing hand, the humiliations come fast and furious and have a lasting effect as Trump showed last night.
Look, this green deal of AOC’s is the gift that will keep on giving to Trump and he knows it if she doesn’t.
That said, AOC, unlike the rest of the hapless Democrats, can actually fight back using the same tactics Trump uses and something tells me Trump enjoys the fight.
From The Daily Mail: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez blasted Donald Trump as a semi-illiterate fool on Monday, minutes after the president slammed her ‘Green New Deal’ proposal as juvenile and poorly conceived.
‘It sounds like a high school term paper that got a low mark,’ Trump said of the sweeping outline that the New York Democrat unveiled last week.
The president was speaking at a raucous rally in El Paso, Texas.
The Green New Deal itself has become the subject of mockery online as conservatives lampooed Ocasio-Cortez for a communications rollout guide, produced by her chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti, that argued for a range of environmental remedies including phasing out all air travel and eliminating ‘farting cows’ from U.S. agriculture.
It also proposed to guarantee economic security for Americans who are ‘unwilling to work.’ Ocasio-Cortez has since disclaimed that stated goal.
From The Hill:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) is firing back at President Trump Monday evening after the White House and Trump himself criticized the rollout of the freshman lawmaker’s Green New Deal legislation.
In a tweet Monday night, Ocasio-Cortez mocked reports that Trump often forgoes reading the traditional briefings offered to him by aides in favor of vocal briefings from advisers.
“Ah yes, a man who can’t even read briefings written in full sentences is providing literary criticism of a House Resolution,” she tweeted.
“(‘Reading the intelligence book is not Trump’s preferred ‘style of learning,’ according to a person with knowledge of the situation,’ – @washingtonpost),” she added, referring to a Washington Post report.
The president during a rally Monday night in El Paso, Texas likened the proposal, which would steer America’s economy toward reliance on sustainable energy, to a “high school term paper that got a low mark.”
The White House in a statement last week said that Trump “has vowed that America would never be socialist, and this administration will fight this central planning disaster,” and called the plan a “roadmap to destroy the American Economy.”
Ah yes, a man who can’t even read briefings written in full sentences is providing literary criticism of a House Resolution.
