SCARY! Ocasio-Cortez Admits In Interview She Thinks About About Running for POTUS [Listen]

If freshman Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) were 35-years-old today, there’s probably a decent chance she’d be running for president.

She already has the momentum and name recognition despite only being a member of Congress for a few months.

During a recent podcast, AOC admitted she thinks about running for POTUS “every once in a while.”

AOC spoke with Yahoo! News’ Skullduggery podcast Sunday about a variety of issues, and the conversation eventually turned to her thoughts on the 2020 election and her own sights for higher office.

“I don’t know, I really don’t know,” the freshman congresswoman said of her next steps in politics. “I think about it every once in a while but … this is pretty hard already.”

She wouldn’t discuss any specifics, and instead deflected with “I just want to be useful.”

What this boils down to is that AOC will run for president in 2024, maybe regardless of what happens in 2020.

It’s a scary thought, which is why conservatives must keep showing up to the polls.

Like many politicians who make their way to Washington DC, Ocasio-Cortez has forgotten about her constituents.

AOC is more concerned about creating a socialist America than the plight of people in the Bronx and Queens.

She’s thrown all her weight behind the far-left “Green New Deal” in an attempt to raise taxes on the American people.

Now, some from her district are getting fed-up.

From New York Post:

Amid her zeal to save the world with the Green New Deal, Rep. ­Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has ­ignored residents in her own Bronx back yard.

“I thought AOC would be our savior, but that’s not the case,” complained Roxanne Delgado, a local activist who said she has tried for months to get in touch with the congresswoman for help saving an animal shelter and to clean up parks in the district.

Delgado, 40, says she has made numerous calls to Ocasio-Cortez’s offices in Washington and Queens and sent a barrage of tweets after the freshman lawmaker encouraged residents during a recent visit to a Bronx public library to hit her up on social media.

But she’s heard nothing back.

“NO email or contact on @AOC’s page except DC number which has full #voicemail and no one picks up,” Delgado tweeted on Monday.

The Post made several calls to both the Washington and Queens offices last week. The same recording at both numbers gives Ocasio-Cortez’s Web site and doesn’t allow a caller to leave a message.

In a recent childish tweet, AOC told the GOP they need to “learn to govern.”

This came after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said he’d allow the upper chamber to vote on her “Green New Deal.”

From Daily Wire:

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) tweeted in anger on Saturday over Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell decision to allow a vote on her $93 trillion “Green New Deal” next week, saying McConnell was “wasting votes” and that it was “a disgrace.”

Ocasio-Cortez’s anger was sparked by a report in The Washington Post that noted that Republicans are elevating the fringe, far-left-wing of the Democratic Party — which includes Ocasio-Cortez — to see which 2020 Democratic presidential candidates align with their agenda.

The Post notes that that effort begins next week with a “midweek vote on the Green New Deal” to see which Democrats support the plan, which is a massive government takeover of private industries.

AOC tweeted the following:

VOTER POLL: Do you oppose AOC’s Green New Deal?

The GOP’s whole game of wasting votes in Congress to target others “on the record”, for leg they have no intent to pass, is a disgrace.

Stop wasting the American peoples’ time + learn to govern. Our jobs aren’t for campaigning, & that’s exactly what these bluff-votes are for.

While attempting to clarify a question about “farting cows,” AOC admitted that her plan will mean complete control of the government over the lives of Americans.

(BOLD mine)…

From The Hill:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) sought to explain a recent document from her office that linked “farting cows” to climate change, saying that serious climate policy needs to address agriculture.

A set of frequently asked questions released by her office this month as part of the rollout of her “Green New Deal” proposal to fight climate change mentioned cow flatulence as a problem, but her staff later denounced the document.

Ocasio-Cortez didn’t directly defend the statement in an interview that aired late Thursday on Showtime’s “Desus & Mero,” but said that climate policy might need to look into reducing greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture.
