Ocasio-Cortez Can No Longer Deny Reality, Admits Under Trump the Economy Is Thriving

WATCH: We only have 12 years to save the planet

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been making quite a few surprising confessions over the past few days.

Over the weekend, she attempted to slam critics of her Green New Deal for taking her own words literally. She admitted that her 12 year warning is a joke.

To be clear, AOC said, “We’re, like, the world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change.”

There were no obvious signs of humor. It should also be noted that the 12 year warning is based on a 2018 UN report on climate change. According to AOC, we should consider that nothing more than a comedy routine.

PS– If the GOP is Dwight from The Office (who has one of the best character developments of the whole show), she’s Erin. She has good intentions– not quite corrupted (yet)– but she literally has no idea how anything works. People just kinda nod and smile at her, because honestly…what’s the point?

That’s not the only confession AOC’s made. She also admitted that the economy under Trump’s presidency is pretty fantastic.

She goes on to admit that a cranking economy isn’t good enough. She has dreams for a utopian society fulfilling her idea of “good” and “moral.”

A good economy– with a rising tide that lifts all boats– isn’t enough. Government must grow, and the rich must pay.
