AOC: "I looked at this recipe and I needed basil, and I was going home and I get off the subway station and I go into the grocery store and theres no basil, no fresh basil in the grocery store. So then I walked to another grocery store two blocks down, no fresh basil. I was very stubborn about making this recipe that evening, and I mustve been I mustve walked around for an hour in our neighborhoods, visiting four or five grocery stores, and there was no basil, no fresh basil in any of them. And it just goes to show, its very its very illustrative of the difficulties that we have in our communities in accessing fresh produce."
That’s a shame.
That hardscrabble lass really knows the struggles of the average Joe.
How about Eye of Newt and some of the other witch favorites?
I’m in Upstate. None of our supermarkets have fresh basil. Grow your own. That’s what New Yorkers do when they want fresh.
Even where I live I cannot find fresh herbs.
Oh, the horror of this. This is so sad. No white person has ever had trouble finding fresh basil in the grocery store. This indignity is reserved for those of African-American descent!!
Are you too stupid to grow it yourself?
So there’s no Whole foods store where you live?
Come out to the suburbs beootch I can’t find it either.
Grow your own like we do in the hinterland.
Let them eat arugula!
Must be racism? I guess?
Did she try going to a garden department at a store? She could put a pot of basil on her windowsill. Or buy some grow lights to put over her pot and grow it indoors.
AOCortez has the name of a militant conquistador.
pffft girl lie a lot
Oh sheesh!....I’ve lived my entire life without fresh basil!
Crawl back in your slimy libtard sewer, Occasional Cortex skank.
Sh hasn’t a clue what going without is about.....
