Skip to comments.Ocasio-Cortez hits back after Trump laughs off her Green Deal: failed ‘HS term paper’ at Texas rally

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez could not handle President Donald Trumps mockery of her controversial Green New Deal and ripped into him for his comments during a rally.
The New York Democrat fired back at the president after he ridiculed the proposal during a rally in El Paso, Texas on Monday where he called it a massive government takeover that would destroy the incredible economic gains made in the nation.
It sounds like a high school term paper that got a low mark, Trump said.
I really dont like their policy of taking away your car or taking away your airplane flights. Or Lets hop a train to California, he said. You are not allowed to own cows anymore? There are a lot of problems.
His remarks during his first Make America Great Again Rally of the year drew cheers from the thousands gathered at the El Paso County Coliseum on Monday, but apparently got under Ocasio-Cortezs skin. The freshman lawmaker and self-proclaimed Democratic socialist lashed out at Trump on Twitter Monday night.
Ah yes, a man who cant even read briefings written in full sentences is providing literary criticism of a House Resolution.

She quoted a Washington Post article which stated, Reading the intelligence book is not Trumps preferred style of learning, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.
The president had already derided Democrats in a tweet encouraging them to move ahead with their brilliant proposal.
I think it is very important for the Democrats to press forward with their Green New Deal. It would be great for the so-called Carbon Footprint to permanently eliminate all Planes, Cars, Cows, Oil, Gas & the Military even if no other country would do the same. Brilliant!

Fox News Jedediah Bila loved Trumps tweet, noting during Fox & Friends that the Green New Deal was so removed from the rational and the practical that all he could do was to laugh at it.
The radical legislation has come under fire for its impractical goals as it seeks net-zero greenhouse gas emissions in 10 years, effectively eliminating all fossil fuel energy production as well as nuclear energy, basically rebuilding every building in America and making air travel unnecessary. The socialist dream plan, which tasks the government with providing for anyone who is unable or unwilling to work, would be funded by printing more money.
Theyre coming for your money, and theyre coming for your freedom, Trump told rally-goers. Itll never happen. They wont even come close folks.
That is what it is.......................
I haven’t determined yet if she is a Soviet style Socialist or a Scandinavian style Socialist which could make a difference.
A Mark Levin comment was something about our current US being similar to the Scandinavian style (awkward partial coverage by Obamacare and welfare for only some and Section 8 halfway measures with no one really all the way taken care of).
So Soviet style, Scandinavian style or....
Maybe she is category 3: “dingbat”
He’s pushing their buttons. They respond like jack-asses in a box. Repeat until OAC wises up, in other words, until she’s back tending bar.
She would be wise not to get into a spit fight with the president. He can hurl spit through a fire hose.
The GREEN NEW WALL
Fully fund The Wall with $50 billion,
build it completely in a year,
then Democrats and Cortez get ownership of EVERYTHING!
But only after we see a Rock & Concrete 30 foot high wall for 2000 miles.
And you even get ownership of the Whole World! Sign here.
I think the problem here is that 40% of Americans probably support Socialism. That’s why you see people like AOC representing us in Congress. And it’s quite possible that someone like AOC will become our President. Maybe in 10 years.
AOC is the gift that keeps on giving. How someone like her even got to Congress is a mystery but considering her voting bloc I am not surprised. ................................. Aunt Maxine is getting old, they will need to replace her, so why not groom the bartender with the economics degree(??).
Is AOC as dumb as Barbara Boxer? they sound like Two of a kind.
Hopefully she will be voted out in 2020.
I would like to compare President Trumps IQ to hers, it would be like the sun versus a cigarette lighter.
Stupid arrogant little chihuahua.
She sounds like a pre-teen girl...blended with a chipmunk.
LOL. I actually like her in some ways (not her ideology or congressional voting potential), but that is a classic slam down.
It is their Trojan horse of bad ideas introduced into the political arena.
They will push, push and push and get passed what they can.
Then they will push, push and push some more until they get some more of it passed.
Eventually, they hope to feed the entire sandwich to the American people without them realizing they've eaten the whole thing.
It is how the democRATS...er...I mean....the socialists/communists work.
Itll never happen. They wont even come close folks.
ONLY if we stay vigilant ... the Dems absolutely NEVER give up and don’t care how long it takes; they stay on task, keep their agenda going for decades (i.e., “Obamacare”). Conservatives take a minor victory and go back to their lives, while the Ds just keep on truckin’.
