Default Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez makes another embarrassing gaffe – and Bernie Sanders tweets

Gawd this woman is beyond retarded.

This is the chick libs are pushin' to be the new face of the party?

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez makes another embarrassing gaffe – and Bernie Sanders tweets it out

In an embarrassing gaffe that is being ridiculed by left and right, far left New York candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez accidentally misidentified what party she is campaigning for.

Here’s what she said

After her shocking upset in New York’s 14th congressional district that unseated party boss Rep. Joe Crowley (D), Ocasio-Cortez has gone on to campaign for other similarly far left candidates wishing to bend the politics of the Democratic party.

But on one campaign stop with Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), she appeared to forget, or simply misstate, what party she was campaigning for.


And Bernie Sanders tweeted the video of the gaffe out from his social media account.

He wisely neglected to quote her directly, saying, “Here in Kansas City with [Ocasio-Cortez] to support [Brent Welder] and flip this seat in November.”

Ocasio-Cortez unfortunately said something else entirely.

“We’re gonna flip this seat red”

“Hello everybody,” Ocasio-Cortez said, “um, so excited to be hopping on here, Senator Sanders’ account, and we’re here in Kansas City to rally for Brent Welder, we’re gonna flip this seat red in November!”

But red is typically considered the color signifying the Republican party, while blue is considered the color signifying the Democrat party, so Ocasio-Cortez was saying that she was going to help Republicans win the seat.

Ocasio-Cortez has become a controversial figure even among Democrats, where some of the more traditional party adherents have chafed at the upstart campaign.

Welder has an uphill battle in unseating Rep. Kevin Yoder (R-N.Y.) in the district.

For a socialist, this probably makes more sense as Red is generally the color of the Communist flag.

Keep in mind that no less than the DNC chair has anointed Ocasio-castro as the new face of the Democrat party. Compare the adulation despite her ignorance she is receiving to the scorn heaped on Sarah Palin. Compare Ocasio-castro's as a 28 year old bar tender to Palin's as a small business owner, mother and state governor. Conservatives were mocked for supporting Palin because she is attractive.

It is always a dead giveaway when Democrats insist on describing one of theirs as proud, strong or by their race or gender. No matter her grasp of the issues is confined to a very limited number of socialist talking points, anyone who fails to support her is a deplorable.
