I don't love her but this attack on her by Ted Yoho is despicable.
She’s a big mouth and a handout queen. What is special about her ? Just another handout queen looking to take from the well off.
A loudmouth and a parasite... wait, we're talking about Trump right?
This just came up in a search and I’m tagging this footnote on: Not loving Kushner’s Israel policy doesn’t make AOC antisemitic. She has friends who haven’t disavowed Farrakhan, but really that is a blip compared to Trump‘s use of hate. He is endorsed by David Duke, a literal holocaust denial neo-nazi klan leader. Who run the world? white supremacists.
Are we judging people by whom they are endorsed now?
The whole Squad is about hating on the Benjamins and saying Farrakhan is the GOAT (Greatest of All Time). Stupid. she’s an ass.
I think a couple of the other women in her squad have made ( horrible) anti-Semitic comments, but have not heard of any made by AOC. Anyone else have a specific citation?
Anti-Semitic, can’t get rid of her fast enough.
How so? I've never heard this.
Many of the super libs are.
@Anonymous This is why Florida is Republican coast to coast
I hope AOC will help clear the way for more women in Congress. Sure, she might not be the most qualified, but if she uses her voice and PR skills to help level the field so more women are able to break into leadership positions, then great. Women will never get to be 50% of Congress if their aren’t women like AOC calling men out for their behavior. And honestly, there are a ton of unqualified men in Congress and in order to get equality, it will probably take some women who are more fearless then qualified to help get us there.
This is a naive way to view things. We need to lift up accomplished women instead of pushing unserious ones. AOC is a joke who has been given an enormous amount of credit simply because she parrots back popular opinions and is gorgeous. If she were ugly no one would give a fuck about her. I dont want fearless women who are inexperienced--they always end up fucking everything up for the rest of us. I want older accomplished women who got to where they are by working hard and not just being pretty.
I don’t follow AOC but did watch her entire speech as well as the “apology“ offered by the Florida rep. Her speech was powerful and not at all whiny. I believe she performed a service By calling this out. I believe her but even if the curse was not fb the Florida guy was still aggressively in her face and menacing - this bullying behavior needs to stop. I had my daughter watch it as well. It is 9 minutes very well spent.
Agree. Her speech laid out exactly what is wrong with this type of behavior. It's misogyny. Full stop. Men need to do better.
DOes anyone find it strange that she is always getting attentiion for clapping back at republican men? She hasn't passed any legislation, but is constantly in the news for responding and doing this or that on social media. The whole thing around her is excellent PR. I am surprised people don't see thru this schtick.
She asks excellent questions and is good at her job - part of which is the PR. Smart, funny, and articulate - looking forward to what she gets done.
How is she good at her job? She hasn't passed any legislation, took over a year to open a district office and made the green new deal into a joke (she wrote an unresearched outline). She is good at making you feel like someone is fighting for you while not accomplishing anything. Did you know she also committed fraud by being on the board of Justice Dems while she was a candidate? Pay some actual attention to her.
Yeah I think it’s a schtik too
People are saying that he actually said “fucking bullshit” and didn’t call her a bitch. I really have trouble believing a congressman would call a fellow House member a name like that.
I think there is like one reporter who thinks he said it, but no one else. I do not trust the impartiality of reporters in general so I may be biased there—a lot of them are shit stirrers. With re to AOC, I think she’s whiny, frequently hyperbolic, and loves a good victim narrative. So of course she’s playing this up. Nancy Pelosi has no doubt been called and experienced worse in her career but she is focused on the work and doesn’t eternally play a victim underdog.
+1, she has a pattern. Constantly making a big deal every time someone insults her so she can get her name in the news. notice she hasn't gotten attention for her actual work.
C’mon. He didn’t deny it. He implied that it wasnt intended for her.
She’s really getting under some people’s skin what with being a successful woman.
No, Nancy is successful and highly respectable. AOC is an attention seeker and needs to take a remedial Econ class.
@Anonymous She didn't know she was ineligible to run for Vice-President until she was thirty-five years old.
I love her. And yes, he's awful.
