Socialist Democrat candidate for Congress Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is on fire these days. When she opens mouth, she never gives the correct information.
Could not ask for a better ambassador for the Democrat Socialists.
And now, even the left-leaning Washington Post debunks many of her common claims. The Post’s Glenn Kessler posted a tweet with correction of Cortez’ claims.
Fact-checking Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez:
“Everyone has two jobs”
(Only 5.2% do)
ICE required to detain 34,000 ppl each day
Upper-middle class doesn't exist
(It’s grown 16%)
Medicare for all is cheaper
(It would cost $33 trillion over 10 years)https://t.co/veoFEC4ppX

Ocasio-Cortez isn’t happy with one other fact check in particular, and tried to portray herself as a victim, claiming she only had one slip.
1st time female candidate makes small slip on a budgetary figure during extemporaneous interview: “This girl is SO uninformed! She needs to stay quiet until she knows everything!”

Her followers pointed there is more than just one slip.
“Just last year we gave the military a $700 billion budget increase, which they didn’t even ask for.”
Except that $700 billion is the *total* military budget, not the *amount the budget was increased by*. Not a “small slip” — you were off by ~$700 BILLION.🤷🏼♂️

This one enjoys playing the poor, put upon female card. What happened to empowering women? You're not scoring any points. https://t.co/SEJ5lkv6Ox

Why do you keep bringing up your gender? It’s not endearing you to anyone. In fact, you are being mocked. Defend your policies, not your gender. Like a good little feminist, socialist, democrat 🤷♀️

Small slip??? Sad really… always excuses for spreading lies. She made it painfully obvious that she knows zero about politics, economics, history, math, science, literature, and common sense.
Has she considered it has nothing to do with her being a female, and everything to do with the fact that she can’t answer the simplest of questions by interviewers who agree with her and lob softballs? So, she needs to stop trying to use “female” as an excuse. She is embarrassing intelligent women!
