Former bartender turned Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has continuously called the president a “racist”, and she repeated her message during an interview over the weekend.
“If the president thinks I am crazy…It would actually be a problem if he would agree with my ideas,” she said during the “Noticias Telemundo” interview that aired Sunday.
“He has a lot of problems,” she continues, speaking about President Trump. “He is a racist, he is anti-immigrant and more than that… his administration is corrupt. He has a track record: he is afraid of strong women, of Latino women, he is unethical…”
The interview, done entirely in Spanish, was held in Las Vegas, where Ocasio-Cortez hosted an event called “Unidos Con Bernie Reunión Política con Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez” in support for Sen. Bernie Sanders’s 2020 presidential run.
AOC claims that the economy isn’t doing well, and believes that Bernie Sanders is the only way to fix things. To note, Americans believe overwhelmingly that the economy is doing very well.
Even CNN can’t hide the fact that Americans believe are extremely confident in the direction the economy is going:
The polls tell the story. As 2019 winds down, the economy is getting its best rating in almost 20 years. Overall, 76% of those polled rate the economy very or somewhat good, according to a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS. That’s up nine points from last year and the highest percentage since February 2001.
That didn’t stop Ocasio-Cortez from telling a different story.
“There were many economic problems, opportunities… and those were the reasons to choose it. He hasn’t fixed them, but I think the themes of this Bernie campaign are positive, not negative.”
Hasn’t fixed them? This coming from the lady who made sure Amazon didn’t open up a headquarters in her district, potentially providing thousands of jobs for her constituents she claims to be advocating for.
AOC also discusses her ascension to Congress, after her extensive experience preparing beverages and tacos, thus making her the most fit candidate in a district that clearly lacks solid public schooling.
“Last year I worked in a taqueria, as a waitress and as a bartender, and now I am a congresswoman,” she says. “That is a huge change. But my values are the same. And we are saying the same thing we were saying last year: that we must fight for working families, for health insurance, for education for all children and a fair salary.”
These people never tell folks to go volunteer, and give back. Instead, they advocate for the government to do it all, and call anyone a “racist” who disagrees with their socialist agenda. How in the world did Americans put people like this in positions of power?
