Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claimed over the weekend that she was only joking about that whole ‘world ending in 12 years’ thing and that the GOP was super dumb for taking her seriously. Like, OMG, did they really think the world would end in 12 years? LIKE LOL and stuff, right?
Dude, she is so annoying.
And what’s even more annoying is like, how The Hill covered this ‘flip flop’:

Pretty sure that’s not the real AOC story here … just sayin’.
From The Hill:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) said the GOP is “basically Dwight from The Office” because Republicans take humor and sarcasm literally.
“This is a technique of the GOP, to take dry humor + sarcasm literally and ‘fact check’ it,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote Sunday. “Like the ‘world ending in 12 years’ thing, you’d have to have the social intelligence of a sea sponge to think it’s literal. But the GOP is basically Dwight from The Office so who knows.”
They didn’t even touch on the fact that she claimed she was JOKING ABOUT THE WORLD ENDING IN 12 YEARS.
Guys, we’re certainly not journalists but even we know the real story here isn’t that she made fun of the GOP.
Yes, right, that's the takeaway, not the "I was only kidding about 12 years, you sea sponge." https://t.co/W3A7KWZpds

She gave the GOP a whole lotta ‘clapback’ though!
Is that a generational reference? lol

We see what ‘Josh’ did here. Well-played MAD magazine/Pete Buttigieg reference.
Embarrassed Politician Mocks Others For Using Her Exact Words

This sounds a lot like what Rashida Tlaib tried to pull after being called out for her Holocaust comments.
She is saying all her ridiculous policy errors, which many have defended, were intentional gags. Yet you run with the throwaway line? This isn't serious journalism, it's just pedestrian hackery. When your name appears on an upcoming layoff list, remember this & the like

The gift that keeps on giving – AOC. Signed, The Republican Party

So obviously you didn't happen to notice the part of her tweet where she backtracks on her own bullshit of the 12 year thing and says not to take her seriously.
No, you focused on her dumb Dwight thing. Good job Hill.
