We’re starting to wonder if maybe Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is just trolling people at this point because c’mon, nobody can deliberately be this obtuse.
How is Columbus Day a holiday but Election Day not?
— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@Ocasio2018) November 18, 2018
Perhaps she missed it but without Columbus, there wouldn’t be an Election Day to speak of because there would be no America. This isn’t even like one of those tricky what came first the chicken or the egg questions. Not to mention Columbus Day isn’t a holiday for everyone …
Christopher Columbus discovered America; Erica Election did not.

Heh. Good ol’ Erica.
I've voted AND worked every voting day since I was 18! Job never stopped me from voting!

How do twits get elected to Congress?

By making Election Day a holiday?
Better question: How does anyone take you seriously?

We’re not sure anyone really does.
How come socialism has never worked yet you still want to try it ? These are the questions we should be asking.

10 days on the job and you are already looking to manufacture more days off.

Why do you need Election Day to be a holiday?
— EC (@EdnaV4) November 18, 2018
If only this were part of her campaign ad….. she wouldn’t have been voted in as an elected official 🤦🏻♀️

I'm sure you're going to be a joy to work with in Congress.

Columbus Day isn’t a holiday if you work in the private sector

Also, yes her tweet was bad, but you should see how some people responded to her:
The government doesn't want the working voter to vote. Plain and simple.
— Jay Of Earth (@jayofearth) November 18, 2018
Jay is onto us! QUICK, TELL TRUMP.
People like this vote.
If Election Day was a holiday, there would be less voter suppression. The ruling class doesn’t want that.

You know that face you make when you realize you’ve been wearing your shirt backward all day long at work and nobody told you? Just made that face.
Voting should be ONE THOUSAND times easier than the current tyrannical rules suppressing it are.
— Madam Elle (@MadamElle7) November 18, 2018
You monsters, working to make sure elections aren’t stolen with your Voter ID rules and stuff! For shame!
Columbus committed genocide, the Election day did not

You know what? We. Can’t. Even.
