Oh, AOC. There may come a day when I tire of talking about your utterly inane and thoroughly uninformed commentary on American politics. But it is not this day.
The Congresswoman’s most recent assertions came during her interview on “This Week” Sunday, wherein she stated that there is a “very real risk” of Trump winning the 2020 election. You know, the likelihood the rest of the world has been coming to terms with since this time last year.
(Side note: do read the linked article yourself, because there’s nothing more hilarious than actual direct quotes from AOC written in plain English, and that piece is rife with them.)
According to Ocasio-Cortez:
“I think that we have a very real risk of losing the presidency to Donald Trump if we do not have a presidential candidate that is fighting for true transformational change in the lives of working people in the United States.”
This comment comes as a slight to Joe Biden, who is currently leading among Democratic candidates, because he’s not batsh– I mean radically leftist. In a testament to how utterly out of touch Ocasio-Cortez is with what the American people actually support, she said,
“I think that if we elect a president on half-measures that the American people don’t quite understand — the agenda of a president, you know, that says we’re fighting for higher wages but we don’t want a $15 minimum wage, fighting for education but we don’t want to make colleges tuition-free, fighting for women’s rights, et cetera, but we don’t want to go all the way with that, then I think we have a very real risk of losing the presidency.”
Look, AOC. This will understandably come as a shock to you, but what you define as “going all the way” is actually detrimental to your proclaimed goals. I hate being in a position where I feel like I’m defending Moldy Joe, but there’s nothing wrong with a little bit of moderation in government rule. If Ocasio-Cortez can’t remember that she’s the radical one– and this applies to the entire left, to be clear– then we’re going to have much bigger problems than cow farts on our hands. Your campaign, Alexandria, was about staying connected with your constituents. Don’t forget that.
