Imagine, for a moment, that you’re AOC.
You’re living the high life in Washington, DC, collecting $174,000 a year for barely working at a job for which you have NO qualifications, spending your time posting videos of yourself drinking wine while going on Liberal tirades.
It’s got to be good to live her life.
She drives around in those big SUVs, eating big burgers with members of her staff (there are videos of the supposed “Climate Change Warrior” doing exactly that). All in all, she’s darling of Leftists everywhere.
But if she’s got it that good, why is she always angry?
If you were to look at her social media, you’d think that this woman woke up to somebody taking a crap in her Wheaties every morning. The sheer amount of vitriol and misinformation that comes out of her mouth is both fascinating and alarming.
It’s like she wakes up every day with the purpose of seeing what she can yell and scream about.
It’s been her M.O. since she gained notoriety for being the pretty little socialist that won her seat in Congress due to a viral marketing campaign.
Since the spread of COVID-19, she’s been pretty vocal and angry about how the Trump administration has handled the response to the pandemic. Her COVID-19-related fury only highlights the fact that she’s clueless about the responsibilities of state and federal governments – but that’s a discussion for another day.
AOC Blows Her TOP!
However, while she’s been seething this whole time, she’s absolutely EXPLODED since certain states started the slow process of ending the lockdown and reopening for business.
Of course, it’s easy for her to be angry as she sits in her ivory tower, collecting taxpayers’ money while MILLIONS of Americans are out of work due to the shutdown.
This elitist privilege was highlighted in one of her recent tweets when she said, “The Trump admin is now projecting 3,000 daily deaths by June, and they are STILL pushing to ‘reopen.’ We are now careening towards one 9/11-scale death event *per day.* This was all preventable w/ tests, tracing,& policy. Instead, the GOP showered their friends w/ bailout money.”

We see what you’re trying to do, you clever little minx. You’re trying to put this all on Trump and the GOP…
Except you’ve seemed to have forgotten that Democrats control Congress. That “bailout money” you’re saying the GOP showered onto their friends was drafted and voted on by YOU and your party.
How is this a partisan issue?
It shouldn’t be, but it IS—and it’s for the same reason that lifelong politicians like Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are millionaires: Deep State has DEEP ties to the people that keep them in power.
Pointing Fingers At The Wrong People
As far as this crisis being “preventable,” does AOC have ANY clue about the way the pandemic spread? Does she remember when she and the rest of her Liberal brethren called Trump xenophobic for shutting down travel from China? Does she remember when her hero Bernie Sanders said he wouldn’t have shut down travel from China, an action that the medical community agrees saved THOUSANDS of lives? If not… let refresh her memory: https://twitter.com/chrisjdmartin/status/1237148822624763904
Just admit it, AOC: you’ll do and say whatever the majority of your party wants, and there’s no shame in admitting that. But just so you know, you come off as a bit crazy and disingenuous when you praise a guy that wouldn’t have acted as quickly and decisively as Trump did.
You should just be happy to be included in the conversation…
Though your words can’t help but make one wonder what our world would be like if people spoke the truth instead of toeing the party line.
We know what it looks like with Donald Trump…
But it would be interesting if the rest of DC followed suit.
It’s something we can dream about, can’t we?
