Ocasio-Cortez Tries to Defend Socialism After Trump Bashes It, But Gets a Brutal Reality Check

One of the best things in President Donald Trump’s terrific State of the Union address Tuesday night was when he spoke about Venezuela, condemned socialism and made his declaration that the U.S. would “never be a socialist country.”

Here it is, they even get Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and his mad face in response:

What were the reactions of the socialists? They were so mad.

Got to love it.

Chris Matthews gave Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez an outlet to vent her frustration after the State of the Union.

He asked her what she thought of Trump’s remarks.

“He feels like he feels himself losing on the issues,” she said. “Every single policy proposal that we’ve adopted and presented to the American public has been overwhelmingly popular.”


Hmm. What proposals have you actually gotten passed? If the people were overwhelmingly in favor of them, they’d be passed already, right?

People really want to eliminate all fossil fuels as she proposes, before the world ends in 12 years, as she claimed?

Somehow, and it’s just a guess, one would have to bet no on that one.

And then she never really answered the question, to respond to the criticism of socialism.

Some dodge.

Of course, facts like Venezuela don’t support her socialist notions.

But speaking of what the American people think and polls, they’re already in. And no, the people are not with you, Ocasio-Cortez.

Boom.
