Luxury apartment dweller Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is very concerned that generally speaking, Americans have some money. Because it’s not fair:
.@AOC: "40M Americans are living in poverty right now, and if the poverty line was… at what some people think it should be — about $38,000 a year — we would be shocked at how much the richest society on the planet is allowing so much of its people to live in destitution." pic.twitter.com/h2ETkSvJX8

There’s that patented AOC brilliance again!
I don’t think she knows what the word destitution means.

To be fair, she didn’t say “destitution”; she said “destitute.” Because she’s as good at grammar as she is at economics.
"If we redefine what constitutes poverty, you'd be amazed how many people we could call poor!" https://t.co/i4ZWpjwZ6R

38k/year is poverty in AOC's mind..? Wow!

I’m sorry, $38,000 as the poverty line? That is full on insanity. https://t.co/JMW7mQILwP

By the world's standard the poorest person in America is rich.
