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.
Anyone else get the impression, that this girl is childish? Isn’t this a really childish response to what Trump said?
The New Green Deal takes over everything even you
Oh, the tilt-a-whirl in Alexandrias head just went into overdrive and the cars are shooting off the ride like rockets.
It is a ‘stupid’ response.
She claims ‘literary criticism’ when actually it was on teh substance of the matter.
She is absolutely a walking, talking idiot in an office way over her head..................
Saul Alinsky rule #5: "Ridicule is man's most potent weapon."
Careful. Dems are taking our names for reservations on the trains to the death camps.
IF they win.
We MUST NOT let them win.
She’s not qualified to be a bartender at any of Trump’s properties.
They view the world through blood colored glasses......................
On top of it all, AOC one of the most irritating female voices I have ever heard.
If I were Trump, I’d tell her:
“Sit down, Child... your immaturity is showing.”
Well, I wouldn't go that far. This is more like sandstone vs. granite. Both dumb as a box of rocks, however.
As someone who has saved up for lots of overseas trips before I die, I highly reject her assertion that no one needs to travel by air.
RIDICULE is the BEST OFFENSE!
Yeah, DOPEY, you just keep on believing he’s dumb....keep going.
I agree with the stupid part, but more so than Queen Shelia. I don’t know about that.
True but read what you just wrote...
That a 29 year-old political nobody has risen in less than one year to engage in political discourse with the President of the United States is the real story here.
Of course many would make the same statement about Trump, going from never having run for anything to becoming Potus in less than 4 years.
When people piss and moan about how dumb she is, and why are we even giving her the time of day — that is the reason. It’s a sign of a new political era that is quite remarkable in many ways. Just think of how your congressperson must feel to have eaten endless rubber chicken dinners, ooohed and ahhed over countless babies, and done the bidding of their party only to be completely upstated by the Airhead Of Congress. If you think the democrat pols are thrilled by her arrival, think again.
This is a crisis in the D party and as Rahmbo said, you never want to let a good crisis go to waste.
The thin-skinned dingbat cannot take it.
She’s giving Pelosi fits...................
LOL, She’s triggered.
