As Twitchy told you earlier, socialist superstar Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made a colossal fool of herself with her take on unemployment:
Socialist Ocasio-Cortez confronted with booming economy & low unemployment numbers.
She says "Unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs” and "Capitalism has not always existed in the world and will not always exist in the world.” pic.twitter.com/dxIqwqZn89

Don’t know what that says about the college that gave her an economics degree, but it’s not good.

What it says about the state of the Democratic Party isn’t good, either. At least not for the Democrats. Even MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle can see it:
THIS WILL NOT HELP THE BLUE WAVE https://t.co/l4A1rvAX7N

What makes it extra funny is the liberals who are pissed at Ruhle for helping to shine a light on Ocasio-Cortez’s ignorance.
I think you are speaking for yourself. Not clear what makes you an expert on the Blue Wave.

What won't, stating facts? People have jobs but to many of them aren't enough to actually live on, and Capitalism hasn't always existed and in all probability will not always exist. In a pure form it doesn't even exist now.

She is speaking truth to power. This is happening to more Americans than MSM would care to acknowledge. People ARE working 60, 70, 80 hrs/wk. to make ends meet. People dig thru recycling every day to collect bottles for deposit on my st. Not everyone works for corps or MSNBC.

Stephanie…what gives you the authority to determine what will and will not help the blue wave?
Are you on the ground attending town halls, online conferences and neighborhood meetings? Or are you on msm corporate tv discussing Donald Trump ad nauseam?

Neither will your tweet Stephanie.

Stop it. Just stop. Now is not the time. #Unite

What wont help the blue wave is you constantly saying trump will win in 2020 he will be indicted …impeached or jailed before then. Stop normalizing him

WE HAVE TO STOP ATTACKING OTHER DEMOCRATS AND ACCUSING THEM OF HARMING THE BLUE WAVE.
The President is working for the Russians – The Republicans are working for the Russians
We have to stick together.

Let's be clear please. This is one woman, one Democrat who won in a very liberal district. She doesn't remotely represent the breadth and depth of the Dem party. There will be a blue wave, despite her and including her.

Congrats on using your platform to alienate a woman that is trying her best to make things better. She may not be your political choice, but she is trying…

THIS IS SO INSIGNIFICANT IN THE GRAND SCHEME OF THINGS, IT WILL HAVE ZERO IMPACT ON THE BLUE WAVE. You keep missing the story, Steph. You keep talking about Trump's base like they're the majority. They are not. Stop being such a Republican tool with this crap.
— Juli Bunting (@JuliBunting) July 17, 2018
Ruhle is hardly a Republican tool. But if the Democratic Party wants to eat itself, we certainly won’t stand in their way.
