People are starting to see that socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) may not be the best face for the Democratic Party to put forward.
She had a bit of a meltdown after even left-wing publications called her out and fact-checked her on her falsehoods in the wake of her “60 Minutes” interview.
From Daily Wire:
The former bartender claimed on CBS News’ “60 Minutes” on Sunday that people were too focused on being “factually” accurate, and not focused enough on being morally right, which drew widespread criticism.
That criticism carried over into news reports today from left-leaning publications, including The Washington Post and CNN, which published reports titled, “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s very bad defense of her falsehoods” and “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s very slippery slope on facts,” respectively.
Even leftist Whoopi Goldberg slammed Ocasio-Cortez, advising her to “sit still for a minute and learn the job .. .before you start pooping on people and what they’ve done, you got to do something … “
She suggested that media was holding her to a higher standard than they were remarks by President Donald Trump or the White House.
Now, that’s just nonsensical as she has gotten extremely favorable coverage in general from national media while the Trump has gotten round the clock negative coverage.
And just a small point, note the use of “45” rather than saying “President Trump,” a common put-down of the resistance because they don’t want to have to call him president.
Once again, WaPo fact checker Glen Kessler pointed out the false nature of Ocasio-Cortez’s claim.
Part of her problem is that, unlike what she said on “60 Minutes, when she’s called out on something being wrong, she doesn’t just say, “Sorry, I was wrong” and move on, she keeps trying to justify or spin the false comment.
And she’s doing it again with this, suggesting she isn’t being treated fairly or that standards are different for her.
