AOC Furious Over $7 Croissant, Instantly ROASTED for Lack of Economic Knowledge

ECON 101, AOC!!

It could not be easier to defeat a liberal argument.

All you have to do is use their own words against them.

For example, Democrat Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is upset that she had to pay $7 for a croissant – as anyone would be.

But how is it so hard for AOC to see why she’s paying $7?

A basic lesson in economics should have Ocasio-Cortez understanding that when minimum wages rise, so do the costs of goods.

Hasn’t she ever heard of supply and demand?

Of course, raising the minimum wage also forces businesses to cut back workers’ hours and/or sttop hiring altogether, but, shhh! Alexandria doesn’t want to hear that!

And yet, AOC still calls for a $15 minimum wage.

Look:

Croissants at LaGuardia are going for SEVEN DOLLARS A PIECE ????

Yet some people think getting a whole hour of personal, dedicated human labor for $15 is too expensive??

Reactions:

AOC then fired off another tweet after being resoundingly mocked, as per usual…

GOP taking every tweet so earnestly, making my point for me. It’s not an argument against the price of a croissant – it’s about the value of human worth.

But I guess that idea is foreign to them since their policies treat people as disposable anyway ????????‍♀️

And the reaction that wins the day…

KILLSHOT!

Ocasio-Cortez earns $174,000 annually, just like every other member of Congress – aside from the leaders of the House and Senate, who make more.

The 29-year-old Alexandria has only been in office for a couple of months and she’s already complaining about working “all the time.”

No joke.

AOC: “Okay guys, I’m just getting out of work, that’s my office behind me.”

AOC: “Um the thing they don’t tell you about working in Congress is that if you do what you’re supposed to do, you’re working all the time, which means you have no time to set up your life.

WATCH:

Americans work, Alexandria. It’s what we do.

For $174,000, AOC has to know she’s doing far better than the average worker, right? RIGHT!?

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has finally come out to tell Ocasio-Cortez that enough is enough with the “Green New Deal.”

From Daily Wire:

Pelosi has been coy about her support for the GND (or lack thereof), calling the plan “enthusiastic” when it first debuted earlier in February, and has regularly distanced herself from Ocasio-Cortez — and she hasn’t tabled the Green New Deal for a vote, leaving it effectively dead as an answer to “climate change.”

This week, though, Pelosi unleashed her characteristic subtle criticism on Ocasio-Cortez and her partner in the Green New Deal, Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA), in an interview with a reporter from “Rolling Stone” magazine, who asked her why she had yet to allow House Democrats to dicuss the plan openly.

“The Green New Deal,” Pelosi said, goes “beyond our charge.” and “is not what we hope to achieve.”

This is not exactly the first time a member of AOC’s own party has told her to stop.

Not even close, actually.

Save conservative media!

Watch: Biden Says He Talks With His Team About COVID-19, Asks ‘Where Do We Do?’

‘Implemencation?’ What?

It’s a day ending in “y,” so 2020 Democrat frontrunner Joe Biden said something silly. It’s just par for the course, at this point – like a tweet from President Trump. It’s just going to happen. The fact that the former vice president, who has yet to be endorsed by Barack Obama, still has trouble stringing along basic sentences, is troubling. Unless you’re a Democrat. In that case, everything is fine.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, told The Post, saying the virtual broadcasts were not helping. “We need action immediately, and Biden can’t do anything real right now.” Here’s more COVID-19 randomness, via Twitter… https://twitter.com/TheFirstonTV/status/1243943188202741760 https://twitter.com/5thYear/status/1244003547605348352 https://twitter.com/TMZ/status/1243996304444923904 https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1243989599128563713 https://twitter.com/HardFactorMark/status/1244018816780324865 https://twitter.com/TMZ/status/1243981209807532032 https://twitter.com/darrenrovell/status/1244018174347153412 https://twitter.com/barstoolsports/status/1244010121568456706 https://twitter.com/TMZ/status/1243986977340325893 https://twitter.com/HKWORLDCITY/status/1243865641448169474?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1243865641448169474&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fwatch-senior-who-official-avoids-taiwan-question-talks-about-china-abruptly-ends-interview%3F%253Futm_source%3Dtwitter%26utm_medium%3Dsocial%26utm_campaign%3Ddwtwitter https://twitter.com/TMZ/status/1244006484754583552 https://twitter.com/BroBible/status/1244012697135370240 https://twitter.com/BNODesk/status/1243965506983428096

China Likely Lying About COVID-19 Deaths, Photos Shows Thousands of Urns [Report]

How will they spin this one?

It was reported on Friday that the United States overtook China and Italy with the most confirmed cases of coronavirus. But why would anyone (except for the left-wing mainstream media) believe the Chinese are reporting their numbers accurately? Don’t fall for it, y’all. From Bloomberg: The long lines and stacks of ash urns greeting family members of the dead at funeral homes in Wuhan are spurring questions about the true scale of coronavirus casualties at the epicenter of the outbreak, renewing pressure on a Chinese government struggling to control its containment narrative. The families of those who succumbed to the virus in the central Chinese city, where the disease first emerged in December, were allowed to pick up their cremated ashes at eight local funeral homes starting this week. As they did, photos circulated on Chinese social media of thousands of urns being ferried in. CONTINUED: Outside one funeral home, trucks shipped in about 2,500 urns on both Wednesday and Thursday, according to Chinese media outlet Caixin. Another picture published by Caixin showed 3,500 urns stacked on the ground inside. It’s unclear how many of the urns had been filled.
