Are we the only ones are reminded of Michelle Obama’s confession that she’d never been proud of America until her husband was nominated for president when we see this clip of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez telling of how her family’s move to Westchester, N.Y., gave her her first taste of a country with educational standards?
Ocasio-Cortez formally endorsed Bernie Sanders for president at his rally Saturday, and we’re pretty sure he’s not for school choice either, but it looks like Ocasio-Cortez is all in favor of it:

Is she arguing for school choice?
— William Mattucks (@WMattucks) October 19, 2019
She is but she doesn't realize it.

Ask her if she supports school choice
— Destructive Chemistry (@DestructiveChem) October 19, 2019
On this, she’s correct. Which is controlled by our government. So, is @AOC advocating for limited government and school choice?
— Tim (@boathousedcl) October 19, 2019
So she’s championing school choice now? She’s slamming the teachers union? She’s putting kids first?

AOC favors vouchers?

So she is in favor of school vouchers? pic.twitter.com/0vIbwkVxtI

No, she favors pouring more money into teachers’ unions so they can send the money back to the Democratic party in the form of campaign donations.
Her parents moved because liberal policies in NYC failed their citizens. ?♀️

Even Jeb! picked up on it:
Maybe she should support lower income parents who can’t move the power to choose their child’s school. https://t.co/5tIUio0GLc

At least Bernie Sanders secured her endorsement — he needs the boost.
I somehow can't see the guy who just had a heart attack winning the election.
