Ocasio-Cortez mocks GOP for 'corny' attacks on Beto O'Rourke
The Hill ^ | 8/30/18 | Morgan Gstalter

New York Democratic congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez mocked the GOP on Thursday for “corny” attacks against Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) that invoked his former band.

The Texas Republican Party took a shot at O’Rourke’s 1990s punk band called Foss on Twitter this week after he refused to debate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), whose seat O'Rourke is running for, by tweeting, "Maybe Beto can’t debate Ted Cruz because he already had plans."

“Why is the GOP so corny?” Ocasio-Cortez asked on Thursday.

“You can front a band and run for office. You can pierce your nose, be a bartender, a teacher, a stay at home parent; wear a dress or rip your jeans — none of this disqualifies you from advancing the fight for healthcare, education, housing, and justice,” Ocasio-Cortez, who at one point tended bar, added.

She's a bartender, Jim.

Tending bar is an honorable profession.

She should have stuck with it.

...or maybe, just maybe the gringo Fake Mexican Robert “Beto” O’Rourke with a criminal record is a fraud through and through.

If the Republicans lose control of the Senate, President Trump will never be able to have another judge confirmed.

Isaiah 5:21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, And clever in their own sight!

So, in the present paradigm, those who do right are wrong, and those who do wrong are right? Wonder to what type of society that will lead us?

Maybe I'll just hold my nose, but it'll be cold day in Hell before I'll ever vote for a Democratic party candidate like Beto. Get over your "punish Cruz" thing and think about what the Democrats are offering you. Of course if you agree with their platform, then cast your vote for the leftist bastards.

She celebrated the $15 minimum wage that got over 150 of her coworkers at that coffeeshop put out of work when the business owner closed.

You do that in the primaries.

You can take that “give a seat to the Democrat to teach a lesson” bulls*it and stow it.

Like what the f*ck is wrong with some of you? You think these are the Democrats of the 90s or something?

I thought his ‘punk’ band was the El Pado Pussycats, the one where he wore a dress mocking transgender folk.

Robert Francis O’Rourke fled the scene of a highway crash that he caused through drunk driving at nearly 100mph. His judge daddy fixed it.
