Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was asked what she thinks has been her “biggest mistake” since joining Congress four months ago, and her response is absolutely mind-boggling.
During an interview with the Yahoo News podcast “Skullduggery” on Sunday, the New York socialist claimed that her biggest mistake was how she introduced her Green New Deal.
When her socialist measure was introduced two months ago, it was ripped to pieces by just about everyone.
The original draft of her plan, which was taken down and heavily edited when she re-introduced it, claimed she wanted to get rid of farting cows because they are damaging the planet.
Below is a partial transcript of her exchange:
OCASIO-CORTEZ: “I think — I’m trying to think in, like, a big picture. I do think that our GND roll-out was really difficult, and it was done in a way that it was really — you see they hijacked the narrative around it. It was, like, too fast.”
HOST: “It just wasn’t vetted carefully enough. Some of that language could be — ”
OCASIO-CORTEZ: “Well, I actually think the resolution itself is very solid. But, you know, between like how it was rolled out — there were, like, competing documents that were rolled out, some prematurely, that muddy the waters and — “
HOST: “So that everyone was talking about cow farts.”
HOST: “And banning hamburgers.”
OCASIO-CORTEZ: “Right. When none of those things are in the resolution itself. So that was probably — that was a big one because it was just frustrating, just intensely frustrating. Yeah. I mean, I always feel like — when I reflect on things, I feel like it’s less feeling like things are mistakes, but things may be — I feel like I’m fine-tuning. So, like, I’ll have to dial things back a little bit to get that pressure closer to where I want it to be. It may be too much, it may be too little, but I don’t feel like there was anything major that I really didn’t wish I didn’t do.”
Her roll-out of the Green New Deal is hardly the most embarrassing thing that she has done or said since joining Congress back in January.
Here are just a few examples of the ridiculous things she has said and done in the past month:
–Ocasio-Cortez pushed a ridiculous doomsday scenario and argued that “we will have blood on our hands” if climate change is not addressed immediately.
–The New York lawmaker said Minnesota Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar has done more for 9/11 families than Republican Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw, a former Navy SEAL who lost his eye in combat while serving in the Middle East.
–Ocasio-Cortez got busted using a fake southern accent during a speech to “appeal” to her audience at the National Action Network’s convention.
–Ocasio-Cortez freaked out over studies showing that her socialist Green New Deal would cost around $93 trillion over the next decade.
–She lashed out after America’s largest organized labor group said her Green New Deal could lead to the end of humanity.
–Ocasio-Cortez falsely claimed that Republicans amended the U.S. Constitution to prevent Republican President Franklin Roosevelt from getting re-elected.
These are just a few examples of things she has said in the past month — imagine how many false and inaccurate things she has said since joining Congress in January.
