Shortly after Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’s FAQ was made public (the one they’ve spent subsequent days desperately trying to reel back in), Hawaii Sen. Mazie Hirono remarked, in response to one stated goal of eliminating air travel, that it “would be pretty hard for Hawaii.” And with it, that sound you’re now hearing is Hirono backpedaling and trying to put the “crazy” label on opponents of the GND. Also notice in the clip below how Mitchell provides some “I think you were joking” cover up front:

Sadly no, she’s not kidding.
I'd love to see what happens to the Hawaiian economy after air travel is banned.

The Green New Deal details are evolving so fast. All we can be sure of is the Dems in the Senate don’t want an actual vote on the resolution.
