If this woman is ever reelected I'm gonna seriously start questioning mankind's future.

Ocasio-Cortez blocks Ohio lawmaker on Twitter over mockery of her latest gaffe

Quote:
A Republican member of the Ohio House of Representatives implied that he was blocked on Twitter by socialist upstart Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) over mockery of her latest gaffe.

Hereís what happened

Rep. Niraj Antani (R-Ohio) posted a screenshot from his social media account indicating that he was blocked by Ocasio-Cortez after a mini-feud over an odd statement she made about the 3 branches of the U.S. government.

Ocasio-Cortez posted a video where she discussed the necessity of the Democrats having to reclaim all three ďchambersĒ of government.

ďIf we work our butts off to make sure that we take back all three chambers of Congress,Ē she said, ďuh, rather, all three chambers of government: the presidency, the Senate, and the House, in 2020, we canít start working in 2020.Ē

Ocasio-Cortez was widely mocked by the right for misidentifying the three branches, not chambers, of government Ė the legislative, the executive, and the judiciary.

Methinks they don't want that debate because they know they will lose.
Sweet Jesus and Mother Mary. Please read what you wrote, and apply it across the board, if you are able.

The hypocrisy is astounding.....

Most of what you have been shown is very slanted because there is a campaign to minimalize her views and approach. The clip in question here might be that she misspoke but there have been others that are completely distorted and fake, but are to this day believed to be real interviews of her saying outrageous or incredibly dumb things.
As I say it is a tactic used (since at least the 70s) by interested groups to get rid of any positives from the opposition.
You may disagree with her opinions but she is a serious and energetic representative.
If this moron had an "R" next to her name, you would be the first to criticize and attack her for any and everything she said. The fact that you are going to great lengths to defend her, shows how partisan you are. This women is a clueless idiot and I'm not saying that because she is a Democrat; I'm saying that because of the idiotic things that she espouses.

Your defense of this women shows how unable you are to actually debate on this forum and is a reason that most here don't take you seriously.

Is that because that is where their brains are located? This doowah Ocasio needs to be set out to pasture first.

Salty, I've listened to the interviews. This includes the CNN interviews. Even the favorable interviewers come away shaking their heads. I haven't seen those interviews where she actually made some degree of sense. I've not seen the distorted and fake ones. Maybe you could post them?

You mean like you have "honestly given a listen" to Trump?

There is proof positive Trump is doing a GREAT job, today 53% approval rating on his handling of the economy and you still want him gone and have NEVER given him a "listen" or a chance and he's the President of the United States so please don't lecture me.

Hank Johnson is still there. 5 or 6 terms.

Do you really believe that a few slips of the tongue will stop her constituents from reelecting her?

She is literally the dumbest elected official to ever hold office. Ever. Period.

I hate making absolute statements like that, but if she is not, she is right up there with the dumbest ever.
