Ocasio-Cortez hits back after Trump laughs off her Green Deal: failed ‘HS term paper’ at Texas rally

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez could not handle President Donald Trump’s mockery of her controversial “Green New Deal” and ripped into him for his comments during a rally.

The New York Democrat fired back at the president after he ridiculed the proposal during a rally in El Paso, Texas on Monday where he called it a “massive government takeover that would destroy the incredible economic gains” made in the nation.

“It sounds like a high school term paper that got a low mark,” Trump said.

“I really don’t like their policy of taking away your car or taking away your airplane flights. Or ‘Let’s hop a train to California,’” he said. “You are not allowed to own cows anymore? There are a lot of problems.”

His remarks during his first “Make America Great Again Rally” of the year drew cheers from the thousands gathered at the El Paso County Coliseum on Monday, but apparently got under Ocasio-Cortez’s skin. The freshman lawmaker and self-proclaimed Democratic socialist lashed out at Trump on Twitter Monday night.

Ah yes, a man who can’t even read briefings written in full sentences is providing literary criticism of a House Resolution.

She quoted a Washington Post article which stated, “Reading the intelligence book is not Trump’s preferred ‘style of learning,’ according to a person with knowledge of the situation.”

The president had already derided Democrats in a tweet encouraging them to move ahead with their “brilliant” proposal.

I think it is very important for the Democrats to press forward with their Green New Deal. It would be great for the so-called “Carbon Footprint” to permanently eliminate all Planes, Cars, Cows, Oil, Gas & the Military – even if no other country would do the same. Brilliant!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 9, 2019

Fox News’ Jedediah Bila “loved” Trump’s tweet, noting during “Fox & Friends” that the “Green New Deal” was “so removed from the rational and the practical” that all he could do was “to laugh at it.”

The radical legislation has come under fire for its impractical goals as it seeks net-zero greenhouse gas emissions in 10 years, effectively eliminating all fossil fuel energy production as well as nuclear energy, basically rebuilding every building in America and making air travel unnecessary. The socialist dream plan, which tasks the government with providing for anyone who is “unable or unwilling to work,” would be funded by printing more money.

“They’re coming for your money, and they’re coming for your freedom,” Trump told rally-goers. “It’ll never happen. They won’t even come close folks.”

AOC is the gift that keeps on giving. How someone like her even got to Congress is a mystery but considering her voting bloc I am not surprised.

We are glad Cortez gets so much press. Everyday she says something proving she is an extremist who is crying out for correction.

” encouraging them to move ahead with their “brilliant” proposal.”

Trump never said their proposal was brilliant. He encouraged them to move ahead with their proposal even though no other country would be doing the same. And exclaimed that would be brilliant.

“I think it is very important for the Democrats to press forward with their Green New Deal. It would be great for the so-called “Carbon Footprint” to permanently eliminate all Planes, Cars, Cows, Oil, Gas & the Military – even if no other country would do the same. Brilliant!

I tried to pick through all that formatting to find out what she said to "hit back," but gave up.

Anyone care to summarize?

The best thing we can do is Keep AOC talking.

The more she talks the more insane and ridiculous she appears to rational people.

Capitalism, our Constitution and men of virtue have made the United States the most successful Republic known to man, and now progressives parasites like AOC want to destroy it all. In a single generation.

Which is why absolute control of the media is so crucial to them. Can’t have any dissenting voices. Not a single solitary voice.

Oh. I did see that, but it made no sense to me.

But thanks for finding it.

Yep, proggie mockers shall not be mocked. SNL-style humor shall NEVER be directed at any proggie. Proggies can never be wrong, never admit error, and never give a real apology for an error they cannot escape.

Proggies are adult children, stuck in the adolescent phase, forever fourteen.
