As Twitchy reported, President Trump, along with the leaders of other nations including Canada, Brazil, and Argentina, on Wednesday recognized National Assembly President Juan Guaido as Interim President of Venezuela, as citizens took to the streets to protest the Nicolas Maduro regime.

As we also reported, one blue-check journalist asked Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez if she could use the power of her Twitter account to “speak out against the Trump-led coup” to oust Maduro.

You’d think with news like that breaking, the media would rush to talk to someone in Congress about it … perhaps a Democratic Socialist who could put things into perspective.

We haven’t seen anything on the @AOC Twitter feed about Venezuela, but hey media, it wouldn’t hurt to ask the expert.

You’d think she’d be anxious to clear up the difference between Democratic Socialism and the type of socialism Maduro was practicing.
