During an event sponsored by Al Sharpton, radical Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was HAMMERED for being “financially illiterate” in relation to ruining the Amazon New York deal.
At the National Action Network event, Ocasio-Cortez talked mostly about her disastrous ‘Green New Deal’ that calls for the end to gas cars, planes and even cow farts. She also oddly noted that her deal will also address reparations for black people which has become a new idea for the Left. This is probably because the black vote is slipping from Left’s hands so they feel the need to literally pay the African American community to get their vote back.
Just hours before her speech however, the CEO of Advent Capital Management, Tracy Maitland, slammed anyone who opposed the New York Amazon deal which led to the loss of 25,000 potential jobs and billions in tax revenue.
“The people campaigning against the Amazon campus are financially illiterate,” he said.
Later on, he accused Ocasio-Cortez of spreading misinformation which ultimately killed the deal.
“This was a disgrace. I partially blame AOC for the loss of Amazon. She doesn’t know what she doesn’t know. That’s scary. We have to make sure she’s better educated or vote her out of office,” he noted.
It didn’t end there. The chairman of the City University of New York Bill Thompson pilled on and mentioned how the people who were most impacted by Ocasio-Cortez’s destruction of the Amazon deal were black and latino students.
“We were at the table talking to Amazon on how students could get jobs. … Those opportunities were snatched away,” Thompson stated.
“Those students look like us. … We’re talking thousands of high-paying jobs. It was a disappointment from a CUNY perspective.”
This wasn’t the only instance at the event where the young congresswoman made a total buffoon of herself. During the same event, Ocasio-Cortez appeared to take a page out the Hillary Clinton playbook and fake a southern accent during a speech to “appeal” to her audience.

“I’m proud to be a bartender. Ain’t nothing wrong that.” Ocasio-Cortez stated while talking in her fake accent. “There’s nothing wrong with working retail…There is nothing wrong with preparing that your neighbors will eat.”

This concept of having an accent to appeal to your audience is quite odd. As a politician, it is very important to be authentic and transparent.
Faking an accent is anything but authentic. One of the reasons why President Trump has been so successful is because he is 100% authentic no matter where he is and no matter who he is talking to.
Another day in America means another day where Ocasio-Cortez is embarrassing herself. The young socialist is making it increasingly clear that she has absolutely no idea what she is doing.
