The congressional drama queen known as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez latest stunt has backfired.
People seem to finally be done with AOC’s antics and after switching her vote to from “no” to “present” to allot funds for Israel’s Iron Dome defense system she is getting called out. Leading up to the vote, AOC and the squad slandered the country of Israel trying to terminate the bill. Rep. Ilhan Omar comments were so inflammatory that Israel threatened to pull their ambassador if the rhetoric didn’t stop.
After all the hate speech and grandstanding when push came to shove AOC didn’t vote on her morals she voted “present.”
During the vote AOC was seen once again crying dramatically and being consoled by another congresswoman. Of course, AOC claimed that she was the victim because that’s what snowflakes do:
Yes, I wept. I wept at the complete lack of care for the human beings that are impacted by these decisions, I wept at an institution choosing a path of maximum volatility and minimum consideration for its own political convenience.
And I wept at the complete lack of regard I often feel our party has to its most vulnerable and endangered members and communities – because the death threats and dangerous vitriol we’d inevitably receive by rushing such a sensitive, charged, and under-considered vote weren’t worth delaying it for even a few hours to help us do the work necessary to open a conversation of understanding.
People aren’t buying AOC’s little stunt and she may have gone a bridge too far trying to pull this one off after what she did at the Met Gala.
I don’t understand much of this statement, though I now think my reading of AOC’s vote was pretty wrong. What matters most here is that per AOC, “the majority of constituent feedback” asked her to “quell the volatility of this moment in our community.” Twitter, meet constituents. https://t.co/OKTcBT5yCR

Are AOC’s sharp political instincts waning? Met Gala now this weird letter that postures one way while failing to explain why she didn’t vote against it. https://t.co/tLRMK8H0KO
