Yesterday democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the new "rising star" of the Democrat party, had a rather busy day filled with publicly humiliating herself. She must be exhausted.
It all started when conservative author Ben Shapiro challenged Alexandria to a debate.
He even offered to donate $10,000 to her campaign if she accepts (how nice).
Shapiro initially Tweeted a video on Wednesday in which he mocked Democratic National Committee chairperson Tom Perez for calling Ocasio-Cortez, a New York congressional candidate, the “future of the Democratic Party,” before issuing his challenge.
“Miss Ocasio-Cortez, I’m really excited that you’ve been elevated to that position and I would love to have a real conversation with you about the issues. You’ve noted that you think Republicans are afraid to debate you or talk to you or discuss the issues with you,” Ben said. “Not only am I eager to discuss the issues with you, I’m willing to offer $10,000 to your campaign, today, for you to come on our Sunday special,” he continued. “We can have an hour long conversation about all the topics under the sun, really probe your belief system.”
Then, Thursday night, Alexandria rejected Ben's offer, referring to it as "catcalling" on Twitter (which means she doesn't know what "cat calling" means).
Amazingly, that's not even the dumbest thing she said yesterday.
While appearing on CNN, she seemed rather confused when asked by Chris Cuomo about Nancy Pelosi's position as a leader for the Democrats. She seems to think Nancy is speaker of the house. Watch Chris's eyes when she makes her dumb comment.
But the fun doesn't stop there! Alexandria took it one step further with this brilliant comment about how healthcare is expensive because of the high cost of funerals. Does she think people with access to premium level health insurance plans don't die when they get old? It appears so.
Isn't she great? This is the future of the Democrat party.
What did you expect? She's a 28-yr-old bartender.
