Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently gifted us with another white-hot economics take:
Billionaires need the working class.
The working class does not need billionaires.
— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) August 8, 2020
Those of us with even a rudimentary understanding of how things work know that … that’s not how any of this works.
So, naturally, Tom Arnold thinks it’s brilliant. And not only that, but he thinks that if you don’t think it’s brilliant, you’re probably just some uneducated rube from Texas.
Conservative tweeter Jason Howerton was one of many who called AOC out on her latest pithy display of ignorance:
The dumb is so intense I’m almost at a loss for words https://t.co/PldUy6AqaX

And Tom Arnold stepped in to defend her honor:

Get it? Because Texans are dumb and don’t go to college and therefore can’t even begin to understand AOC’s genius.
Well, that says a lot more about higher education than you think.

Gee isn’t it kind of wrong to classify all people from Texas as dumb? Love that tolerance, Tom.

Maybe Tom’s the one who needs to be educated.
For the record:
I went to Texas state to party and she makes me feel like a damn Rhodes Scholar. https://t.co/3j2x4Ys4Cd

I believe @jason_howerton went to college too. Pesky details.
Berating someone for where the live is awfully elitist of you, Tom. Especially since Californians are moving to the great state of Texas in droves…..

I’ll take “Things Tom Arnold wouldn’t say to your face” for a $1000 Alex.

Oh, there’s no way he’d say it to Howerton’s face. Or to any Texan’s face.
