Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez spoke to the audience at Al Sharpton’s National Action Network today, and… well, listen for yourselves:
.@AOC: "I'm proud to be a bartender. Ain't nothing wrong with that. There's nothing wrong with working retail, folding clothes for other people to buy. There is nothing wrong with preparing the food that your neighbors will eat." pic.twitter.com/4uveYJNqVj

That speech seemed to shift into pander overdrive quickly at times.
Ocasio-Cortez speaking to a room of primarily black people in an accent that she *never* talks in is extremely patronizing and is racist

That left many wondering if AOC has been mentored by a certain former two-time Democrat presidential candidate:
She learned it well, from @HillaryClinton.

A page from HRC strategy book?

She's got the Hillary accent?

Did Hillary coach her on accents? if so it might explain how badly she's doing it……

Like Hillary's southern drawl.

AOC should be careful or Hillary could sue her for copyright infringement.
