We already know what’s going to happen; Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will tweet something nasty in response, ignoring any suggestion that she was invoking the Holocaust and repeating her claim that the United States is running concentration camps at the border.
Journalists are probably 1) busy with the Democratic debates and 2) sick of this by now and so likely won’t rush in to remind us all that concentration camps aren’t death camps and there were concentration camps in the Boer War.
But good for Gov. Andrew Cuomo for not pretending that Ocasio-Cortez wasn’t referring to the Holocaust.
Governor Cuomo on AOC's concentration camp remarks: “It’s wholly inappropriate comparison. … Six million Jews died during the Holocaust, there is no comparison to the Holocaust, period.”

Oh, hey @ewarren – stop using "concentration camp" term. Thanks

Hey @aoc when your own governor calls you out, you’re in real trouble.

He should tell his brother @ChrisCuomo that. Little bro was stupidly defending AOC.

The absolute first time I agreed with him on something. I’m sure it will also be the last!

What, if anything, does AOC understand?
— Stranger Here Myself (@GhostOfDiogenes) June 26, 2019
She's a petulant child. She doesn't understand. Period.

Wow AOC is so dumb that she actually has me agreeing with Andrew Cuomo
