Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez got annihilated when an attack against a top Republican failed miserably.
She may have to go back to bartending when this is all over.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has one piece of her record she doesn’t want you to see.
The Democrats will find a way to blame Trump for everything he does even if there is no logical reason.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez lost her mind when she found out that Trump had appointed Mike Pence to head up the efforts against the coronavirus.
The freshman congresswoman who was formerly a bartender until she was elected to Congress was offended that someone with so little experience would get such an important position.
Before Mike Pence was Vice President, he was the Governor of Indiana and served in Congress for 12 years.
“Mike Pence literally does not believe in science. It is utterly irresponsible to put him in charge of US coronavirus response as the world sits on the cusp of a pandemic,” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter. “This decision could cost people their lives. Pence’s past decisions already have.”
“As governor, Pence’s science denial contributed to one of the worst HIV outbreaks in Indiana’s history,” she continued. “He is not a medical doctor. He is not a health expert. He is not qualified nor positioned in any way to protect our public health.”
Dr. Drew Pinsky doesn’t understand how Democrats are suddenly blaming Pence for his response when previously it had been held up as a model way to handle an HIV crisis.
“They handled them better than most states did, almost any other states,” Pinsky said. “So, I don’t know what the hell people are talking about. That is fake news.”
Yet Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is herself an expert on how to solve a serious outbreak because she won second place in a high school science fair.
According to the Daily Caller:
Ocasio-Cortez kicked off the exchange by criticizing President Donald Trump’s decision to name Vice President Mike Pence as the head of the Coronavirus task force, saying that he did not believe in science.
Cruz quickly responded by asking the freshman congresswoman a series of scientific questions that were at odds with her ideology — including a query about Y chromosomes.
Ocasio-Cortez responded with a few insults and her resume — and among the scientific achievements, she listed her high school science fair.
Ocasio-Cortez’s conservative critics were not impressed with her accomplishments.
Though Ted Cruz did congratulate her, saying, “Btw, congrats on the science fair.”
Mike Pence is definitely qualified and positioned to take care of a public health crisis.
A lot of the preparations at the moment center around making sure that healthcare facilities have the supplies that they need if this turns into a crisis and doing more testing to see how this virus is spreading while scientists work on a vaccine.
What does Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez think the Democrats would be doing differently?
The biggest difference is that Trump banned travel with China long before a Democrat president would have.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez should concentrate on her science fair projects and leave the serious decisions up to the experts like Pence.
