If only conservatives weren’t so obsessed with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She’s just Alex From The Bronx, Public Servant. It’s not as if she’s trying to turn herself into a celebrity or something!

Democratic Rep. Ayanna Pressley recently declared AOC a member of “the Destiny’s Child of OTC birth control” because of AOC’s work on a bill to make birth control available over the counter, an effort GOP Sen. Ted Cruz has offered to work with her on.

Just so we’re clear, though:

That doesn’t mean AOC doesn’t want to take control of the mic:

Isn’t she the best?

Kween AOC’s so busy being awesome, that she is evidently still not aware that the GOP wanted to make birth control available over-the-counter years ago, but AOC’s friends at Planned Parenthood opposed it and the Democrats weren’t willing to risk losing the return on their investment.


So you sing all you want, AOC. You can’t drown out reality. Or the cringe. There’s just so much cringe.
