AWESOME: WaPost Fact Checker CALLS OUT Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over her BS spin on her $21 Trillion goof

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has not even been sworn in yet but she’s already gotten the 4 Pinnochio treatment from the Washington Post’s Fact Checker over her BS spin yesterday that she really didn’t mean to say that Medicare-for-All could be funded by $21 Trillion in accounting tricks accumulated by the Pentagon:

From Glenn Kessler (emphasis ours):

Swing and a miss!

Ocasio-Cortez is not the first Twitter user to mangle information from a news report. But it’s unconvincing to try to pass this off as a rhetorical point being misread. She cited the $21 trillion figure and said “66% of Medicare for All could have been funded already by the Pentagon.”

That’s a direct comparison. It’s badly flawed. The same article she referenced on Twitter would have set her straight. The tweet is still up, probably causing confusion. So we will award Four Pinocchios to Ocasio-Cortez.

Four Pinocchios

BAM! And she can now add the Washington Post to her ever-growing list of those who have aggrieved her since she became Congresswoman-elect:
