Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s presence in the political universe is, in my view, a bizarre thing indeed. She seems to have no idea of how anything works, and no concept of how to make anything work. She appears devoid of any understanding of how anything does anything in any way in order to accomplish anything anyhow anywhere by any means.
And yet, she keeps talking. And hands holding microphones keep approaching her face.
She strikes me as so empty, I feel genuinely bad for writing anything negative about her. But I keep telling myself she chose a position in the Congress of the United States, and it’s understood that such an occupation will of necessity bring criticism.
On Monday, the President responded hysterically to AOC’s criticism of him, and it just may be the funniest thing you see all week.
This one moment encapsulates, I believe, not only Alexandria and how she’s perceived in Washington, but the Essence of Trump.
Last week, the 29-year-old bartender socialist told 60 Minutes there was “no question” that the Leader of the Free Worl is a racist, and also that “he manufactures crises like immigrants seeking legal refuge at our border.”
He was asked about the comments just before leaving the White House for New Orleans.
A reporter posed, “Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez has called you a racist.”
TRUMP: Who did?
REPORTER: Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez.
I’ll let you watch the video for the Commander-in-Chief’s response. I don’t wanna spoil it for you. Enjoy.
