Alexandria Ocasio Cortez has a delusion of competence. She is having her 15 minutes of fame.
The Dems are desperate for the midterms. It won't work.

Delusion of competence. Hm. Where have I heard that before? Wait, I know!

Trump is very competent. He's a very entertaining clown, good at entertaining, and creating delightful discord.

From this side of the pond, I would call him "spooky."

I don't think anyone will find Trump "delightful" after he's destroyed America's economy. That's what "America first" really means - first America's economy goes down the tubes, and then it will be Europe's turn.

Hmm, dunno if I'd see him like that, theres been creepier politicians. Ted Cruz gives me the creeps, as does Justin Trudeau, I don't trust him and suspect he has a factory somewhere he transfers his mind into a fresh clone every 28 days.

Yes, so desperate they have to spread lies, at great expense, on the internet about how all the Republicans are leaving their own party...

Oh, wait.

I want to keep track of how many predictions Nostradamus over here gets right and how many he gets wrong.  My guess is the results will not be particularly flattering.  Perhaps if I get really bored one day, I'll do just that.

Here are the facts regarding her history of residence: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was born and raised in the Parkchester area of the Bronx until the age of five. Then in search of better schooling, her parents, a Bronxite father and Puerto Rican immigrant mother, moved and she lived in Yorktown Heights. She lived there until she was a high school senior and left to attend college in Boston. After four years at Boston University, she graduated and moved back to the Bronx.

Let us review even further, shall we? Ocasio-Cortez will be 29 years old in October. Referencing the aforementioned history of residence above, she spent twelve years in the Bronx, thirteen years in Yorktown Heights and four years in Boston. Her father, an architect, and her mother, a custodial worker, moved to Yorktown Heights in search of better schooling. There she excelled—she won second place globally in Microbiology at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair—and was able to get into a decent college. During her sophomore year of college, her father passed away from cancer. Right after graduating, Ocasio-Cortez returned to Bronx where she worked two jobs, to help fill the financial void her father left and co-founded a children’s book publishing company. She also worked as a campaign organizer for Bernie Sanders.

I certainly see why you fear her so much, pr; a brown, working class woman who busted her ass off to get to where she is must really grind your gears. And then that she has the nerve to advocate things like improving the education system and making it affordable for all, ending for-profit prison programs, getting lobbying out of the election and system and... *gasp*... believing that everyone, regardless of what colour their skin is or what is between their legs should be treated equally...

Frankly, I am surprised you haven't had a mental breakdown knowing that she exists. I know Fox sure did, considering this is what they are attacking her for...

That pic is hilarious.  Faux News must be really out of touch to think that her platform is scary.  If anything, that only endears her to non-redcap America.

If Faux hadn't mentioned her platform at all, they probably could've fearmongered more successfully about her.  They made the most self-damaging choice possible out of all their options.  Go figure.

Oh, I just remember this! I can't remember if it has been shared on here or not. She worded it even worse in her article, but here she is on Fox saying the same thing...

I was listening to them talk, to Ocasio-Cortez... and... they talk about things that everybody wants, especially if you are a parent; they talk about education for your kids, healthcare for your kids, these things that you want... and if you aren't really paying attention to how they are going to pay for it, or the rest of that, it's easy to fall into that trap and say, 'my kids deserve that.'.

Yes. Horrible trap that, believing that your kids deserve education and healthcare.

It is absolutely insane that this is the number one news source in America, and that is what they talk about.


Edit: So I just watched the video to the end, and the woman says she is from a military family... which means she literally had all her healthcare and some education provided for her as a kid by the government. It was good enough for her, just not good for other people to have it.

So you don't think he's a clown then? And you don't think he creates discord?

maybe you just didn't realize it was a word used before the discord app was created, here, lemme fill you in on its original meaning.

Quote

"a prosperous family who showed no signs of discord"

I think it's the fact you called him competent (he's not), entertaining (he's not), and creating delightful discord (implying that discord can be delightful).

Maybe you don't understand how adjectives work, here let me fill you in on their meaning.


Quote
ad·jec·tive

ˈajəktiv/Submit

noun

1. a word or phrase naming an attribute, added to or grammatically related to a noun to modify or describe it.

I would like to think you don't understand how adjectives work rather than intentionally used them just to bait someone into disagreeing with you and then acting like you never used them.

Maybe context fails you but lemme expand on it. He is a competent entertainer, in context to being anything he does is laughable and its hilarious to see the discord and strife he creates from over here, and how people, like yourself, react to it. If he makes someone laugh in his actions and the reacitons it gets, that makes him a competent entertainer and clown.

See how that works? I get it, you don't like any positive pronouns being associated with your version of Hitler, but maybe read more into it next time
