AOC Tries to Use Meteorological Event to Push Climate Change, Gets Harshly Rebuked by Expert

You live by social media sword, you die by the social media sword.

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez

Freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been one of the most avid social media users in Congress, but that distinction has backfired far more often than it hasn’t for her.

AOC, as she has advertised herself, is undoubtedly one of the millennial-ist members of Congress to ever saunter about the Capitol.  Her constant social media PR and far-left ideologies appeal to a wide swath of the American youth, giving the political newbie a gravitational pull that her fellow democrats have not yet experienced.

But this also means that every tidbit of AOC’s life will be subject to criticism, since every tidbit of her life is being broadcast.

Her latest social media stunt saw the New York House Rep panicking over a tornado warning in Washington DC and attempting to draw a parallel to global warming.

Meteorologists were quick to rebuke her.

Here is the frantic video:

The Green New Deal advocate then shared a story published by PBS in March questioning if climate change makes tornadoes worse and put emphasis on a quote from the piece that read, “Rather than lie squarely in the Great Plains, America’s tornadoes appear to be sliding into the Midwest and Southeast.”

“Tornadoes are challenging to link to climate change links due to their nature (geographically, limited, acute patterns, how they form, etc.),” Ocasio-Cortez told her followers as she reviewed the article. “But we DO know that tornadoes HAVE been changing. They are no longer being limited to the Great Plains, and are shifting to other regions of the country.”

Then came the clincher.

“The climate crisis is real y’all … guess we’re at casual tornadoes in growing regions of the country,” she later wrote on Instagram.

That theory was quickly shot down, however.

Meteorologist Ryan Maue, though, argued that she was confusing climate change with “weather” in the capital region.

“The Congresswoman @AOC does not know the difference between weather and climate,” wrote Maue. “Let’s try an easy analogy: Weather is what outfit you wear heading out the door. Climate is your closet wardrobe.”

All hysteria and no science…as usual.

Dem Lawmaker Shouts ‘F— Donald Trump’ At Pro-Elizabeth Warren Rally In San Diego (Video)

So very childish!

Democrats. Always on their best behavior. Except when in public. Or at rallies. Or on social media. Or on the internet, in general. Strike that. Dems are hardly ever on their best behavior. For example, via Daily Wire: At a pro-Elizabeth Warren event in San Diego, California, a group of protesters showed up to demonstrate against Warren-backer and California Assemblymember Lorena Gonzalez (D-San Diego) for authoring AB5, a disastrous labor law that has essentially declared war on the state’s gig worker economy. During the event, Gonzalez can be seen delivering a speech, but she momentarily seems to lose her train of thought as the group of protesters shift around and the audience breaks into a chatter. Amidst the pause, someone in the audience can be heard shouting “F*** Donald Trump.” CONTINUED: Gonzalez takes the opportunity to blare the phrase back into the microphone: “F*** Donald Trump!” As Gonzalez regains support, protesters break out in chants condemning the labor law, repeatedly shouting “Repeal AB5,” as the lawmaker’s supporters boo them.

They also look for drinking water from sewers. When the government runs amok and guns are stripped from the citizenry, these are the kinds of results people can expect. When asked if they would trade President Trump for dictator Nicolas Maduro, some people actually said, “yes.” Think about that for a second. How uninformed can a person be? WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zQO-2fv5mXI#action=share Not only is Warren not likable but she’s simply a bore. Nobody cares what she has to say. Not even her supporters.

CNN Panel Mocks Biden for Now Claiming He Never Said South Carolina Was His ‘Firewall’

Video of the day??

Former Vice President Joe Biden has an extremely selective memory, especially about things he says that happened or didn’t happen very recently. For example, the 2020 Democrat presidential nominee absolutely, 100%, without a doubt said that he viewed South Carolina as a “firewall” for his campaign. Then, in a recent interview, Biden looked a reporter in the eye and claimed that he never said it – that the reporter said it. He lied. He knew he lied. The reporter knew he was lying. And now, even a CNN panel is mocking him for it. WATCH: https://twitter.com/RNCResearch/status/1232059816392175617?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1232059816392175617&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F From Fox News: Biden had been heavily favored heading into the Feb. 29 contest in the Palmetto State. He has touted his support among black voters, but recent polling suggests he is losing ground among that demographic just days before the primary. […] Biden is tied for third (with Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass.) in total delegates heading into South Carolina. He trails Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and former South Bend, Ind. mayor Pete Buttigieg. But Biden expressed confidence while addressing supporters following his second-place finish in Nevada. If there is anyone who “doesn’t get it,” it’s Joe. It’s pretty clear from the constant gaffes and flubs and errors and unintentional racist remarks, that the dude isn’t playing with a full deck. Where Joe found the stones to run for president against Donald Trump is anyone’s guess. Biden could’ve sailed off into the sunset, himself and many members of his family a millionaire multiple times over. But some people just love the spotlight too much. When Joe’s team tweets something like this, it proves that they’re out of touch with reality.
