Freshman congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez stunned the liberal media when she entered the 2018 Midterm Elections. They propped her up as the future of the Democratic Party. But the “Democratic Socialist’s” hopes vanished, after she introduced one of the worst proposals in American history, the Green New Deal. Now, President Trump is calling her and her proposal out. This is beautiful.
For months, liberals within the media practically worshiped AOC. The self-proclaimed Democratic Socialist was everything they loved. She was young, Latina, and female. For people who put identity ahead of intelligence, skill, or experience, she was the poster child for modern progressivism.
Add to that completely incompetent. AOC appeared on numerous interviews, exposing her lack of knowledge on basis economic issues. She doesn’t seem to understand how our government works. When sitting on important boards, she doesn’t even get her facts straight (like when she grilled Wells Fargo CEO—over something he had nothing to do with).
On top of that, she acts like a spoiled child on Twitter, even when members of her own party confront her.
She is, by all measures, the last person fit for Congress. But she was elected, because Democrats care more about appearance than leadership ability.
They’re all regretting that now, after she put forward her Green New Deal. For months, everyone within the media (especially conservatives) have roasted this horrendous proposal. The idiotic agenda, as you may remember, calls for 100% renewable energy in 10 years (which is impossible), the elimination of all air travel, and for every building in America to be torn down and rebuilt.
Insanity. And that’s only for starters. Any Democrat with a brain should have shot down this stupid plan. But, to the amazement of the entire country, there are many liberals who backed it! Including those running for president in 2020.
Now Donald Trump is calling out AOC and her stupid plan. And he’s roasting the cowardly Democrats who refuse to stand up to the freshman nobody.
President Donald Trump mocked freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., on Tuesday over her signature Green New Deal, referring to the progressive proposal to combat climate change as being “done by a young bartender.”
“The Green New Deal, done by a young bartender, 29 years old,” Trump told the crowd of House GOP lawmakers. “A young bartender, wonderful young woman.”
“The Green New Deal. The first time I heard it, I said, ‘That’s the craziest thing.’ You have senators that are professionals, that you guys know, that have been there for a long time … and they’re standing behind her shaking. They’re petrified of her,” Trump said. [Source: Fox News]
You don’t want President Trump picking nicknames for you. Once they catch on, few will forget them. Calling AOC “a young bartender” (which she was) will forever brand her as such. Brilliant move.
President Trump questioned senators who appear terrified of this woman with zero experience and skill. What is going on the with Democratic Party? AOC is a newbie freshman, that means she has very little pull in Congress. So why are established leaders worried about what she does?
It revealed the utter lack of integrity and vision the party has. If they let a child run the show, they have given up doing anything for our country. People with drive and purpose would never have let AOC come in and dominate the conversation. Democrats have completely lost their will to lead or their ability to control their own party members.
What’s also worth noting is that Trump told Republicans not to defeat the Green New Deal so quickly. Why? Because, being the master he is, Trump wants to hang this over the left’s head for years. Particularly during the 2020 Election. Democrats wanted to pass an agenda that would cripple our economy and destroy our energy dominance.
They refused to put AOC in her place. They are going to have to own that. Trump won’t let America forget what they tried to pass off as real legislation.
It’s going to cost them, big.
As the Democratic Party sinks into oblivion, they only have themselves to blame.
