‘Can this be fact checked?’ Looks like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just got caught pushing a lie — ‘bigtime’

Posted at 3:52 pm on January 08, 2019 by Sarah D

Earlier today, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez shared a woeful tale about an encounter with a victim of the Trump Shutdown. Be warned: You might want to have a box of Kleenex handy for this one.

Wow.

Well, hindsight is 20/20. Maybe next time. Meanwhile, back to the story:

Well, if it did happen — and given the source, that’s a big “if” — the result of her sharing that story may actually make her look even worse than usual.

We know how she feels about being fact-checked, so we’re guessing she doesn’t want anyone to look at the story too closely. Otherwise, they might find that, once again, her math doesn’t add up.

Well, she’s both dishonest and stupid, so either of those is possible.

Well, when facts don’t matter, you can imply whatever you want to.

Oh, she definitely would. And that may work on her slobbering minions, but it doesn’t work on us.

Go figure.

In any event, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez looks bad. Again.

If anyone does, they’d better be prepared for a fight. She doesn’t take kindly to being called out on her bull.

Update:

Here’s something worth noting:

Looks like she’s got one hell of a congressional career ahead of her.
