Sucks to Be Ocasio-Cortez This Week

#1 Post by COSteve » Fri Mar 22, 2019 3:44 pm

"Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., has been slammed by a whirlwind of bad news this week. Friday morning, she received the final blow — because even the mainstream media is sick of her act. Just how rough was the New York socialist’s week? It doesn’t get much worse if you’re a politician.

On Monday it was discovered that Ocasio-Cortez and her chief of staff had been quietly fired from a key position on the board of the activist group, Justice Democrats, The Daily Caller reported. This group was a key political infrastructure for her. She’d previously held complete “legal control over the entity.” In other words, her ousting from the far-left organization’s board of directors was both a personal and political blow. Ocasio-Cortez was removed after it was discovered that during her election campaign, her chief of staff had funneled over a million dollars in donations into a private slush fund. Three ethics complaints were officially filed against her in Congress after the shocking discovery.

But that was just the beginning. A surprising poll by the Siena College Research Institute found that Ocasio-Cortez’ favorability ratings have plummeted among registered New York voters. In fact, even President Donald Trump has a better approval rating in New York, a deep blue Democratic stronghold. “While neither politician crossed the 40 favorability percent threshold, Trump had the backing of 36 percent of people surveyed, compared to Ocasio-Cortez’ 31 percent,” The Washington Examiner reported. Last Friday, Gallup Polling had announced that “41 percent of U.S. adults have an unfavorable view of Ocasio-Cortez, up from 26 percent last September before the 29-year-old was elected to Congress.”

And still, the bad news of Ocasio-Cortez kept coming. On Wednesday, she was caught lying about her test scores to a New York City panel of far-left activists. The activists had gathered to encourage the boycotting of standardized testing because they’re “racist” and “sexist.” Ocasio-Cortez couldn’t help but gloat that she’d gotten a “99th percentile” score during one of these so-called sexist “high-stakes test” — but was later called out by her own supporters. That couldn’t possibly be true, attendee Diane Ravitch later pointed out in her blog.

“It was a bit jarring to hear AOC say that she was [treated in] the Yorktown schools as in need of remedial education because she was Hispanic, not mainstream, but, she said, ‘a-high-stakes standardized Test’ revealed she was in the 99th percentile,” Ravitch wrote. “No one stopped to point out that she could not be referring to any high-stakes test used for accountability purposes because they don’t rank by percentile. They classify students as 1, 2, 3, or 4.”

In other words, she was either flat out wrong, or flat out lied. Think that’s all? That’s only halfway through the week. Fox News star Tucker Carlson reported that in just three short months, Ocasio-Cortez had become so divisive and unlikable that she has already become political ammunition for Republicans. He pointed to a recent GOP congressional candidate’s commercial from North Carolina’s third district as an example. “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: she has the media, she has the followers, but bless her heart, she has some terrible ideas,” Republican candidate Michele Nix says in her latest campaign ad.

The final blow came Friday morning, when NBC News reported that Ocasio-Cortez was under fire for faking an accent. Just when her credibility is on the brink, pundits are asking if she’s forcing a faked “Obama-like” accent? That’s a rough week. And it’s not the end — expect more of the same moving forward. Ocasio-Cortez is so divisive, people can’t stop talking about her. The more the public finds out about her, the more she’s disliked. Just three months into her first term in office, Ocasio-Cortez is struggling to keep her head above water.

At this rate, there may not be a second term."

I still think she'll survive in the district. They could run a turnip and it would win as long as it had a (D) beside it's name. Come to think of it, a turnip would be a step up, intelligence-wise.

Oh, but she's still just so really awesome....!

I think she has such great ideas, and I think she's really going to make America great again... oops I mean that's not the right thing to say because that's racist... but anyway she's got a bunch of really great ideas....!

Even though they don't have any substance, and they've all been proven to be totally impossible, impractical, counterproductive, and downright dangerous, they are really cool ideas and she is just so enthusiastic and cute that I have to vote for her.

Oh, by the way I am a rich spoiled liberal college student who claims to resent the top 1%, even though that's what I come from. I guess I really just hate myself but I'm going to project it on everyone else.....

LOL.... Whatever.... I don't really pay much attention to politics, and economics is really too complicated for me to understand, but I really care about people and because I care about people I'm better than all those nasty racist misogynist conservatives.
