New York Democrat Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez may be new to the hallowed halls of congress but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have clout.
“Let’s just be very honest. She is basically the most powerful Democrat in office right now in America.”
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi may officially be in charge of Democrat leadership but, according to Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk, Ocasio-Cortez is really “the most powerful Democratic lawmaker in office.” That’s what he told Laura Ingraham on Tuesday.
Ocasio-Cortez should be getting some real criticism from her democrat colleagues after mindlessly babbling that border detention facilities are comparable to “concentration camps.” There isn’t a shred of anything close to evidence that would back that up. The media and everyone else just lets it slide by.
“Immediately,” Kirk advises, “when she says something that is historically wrong or morally incorrect, or something that’s totally detestable, anyone who calls her out for that or criticizes her, all of a sudden we are attacking her.”
“Isn’t that strange? We can’t have a conversation on something she said wrong,” Kirk noted. The media quickly has to say “Republicans pounce.”
Ocasio-Cortez should feel ashamed for what she said, Kirk insists. The lawmaker posted on her instagram account that:
“The U.S. government is running concentration camps on our southern border. That is exactly what they are. They are concentration camps. The fact that concentrations camps are now an institutionalized practice in the Home of the Free is extraordinarily disturbing and we need to do something about it.”
Most Americans agree — on that she’s right, we should do something about it. Build a wall and deport all the illegals who are already here.
Ocasio-Cortez may be the “single-handed answer to all the dumb blonde jokes” but she knows how to manage social media accounts. That is what makes her so dangerous, even to fellow democrats.
If you really think about it, she has more social media power, she’s able to draw crowds,” Kirk acknowledged. “Most of the Democrats – they couldn’t fill up this crowd if they paid people. They can’t fill up coffee shops.”
As Kirk said that, he happened to be speaking from President Donald Trump’s rally at Orlando’s Amway Center, with an overflowing crowd.
Part of what makes Ocasio-Cortez so popular are her “anger” and youth.
“She has the power of the base of the party because she is angry and she’s committed toward these radical ideas.”
