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.

AOC Doesn’t Realize She Just Gave Trump A Ringing Endorsement, & It’s All About the Economy

Liberals are constantly making points…FOR CONSERVATIVES!

Ocasio-Cortez could become a regular cast member on SNL and would instantly be funnier than most of the women on that show. The embattled rookie lawkaker is just natually hilarious. She doesn’t even have to try. Check out her tweet about the auto workers strike. AOC doesn’t even realize what she said… Incredibly inspired by GM’s almost 50,000 workers for having the courage to strike for the dignified work they deserve. In a time of record profits, workers should prosper, not suffer. That’s why unions play a key role in an economy that works for everyone. Solidarity w/@UAW🌹 https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1173618604027318272?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1173618604027318272&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fdougp-3137%2F2019%2F09%2F16%2Fthanks-for-confirming-aoc-tweets-support-for-striking-gm-workers-admits-economy-is-booming%2F Reactions: LOL .. that Trump economy is giving them more hours to work. Workers love overtime dollars, unless they’re selfish leftists who think they are share holders in their own company & ungrateful for the job. https://twitter.com/WaskelweeWabbit/status/1173645696983097346?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1173645696983097346&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fdougp-3137%2F2019%2F09%2F16%2Fthanks-for-confirming-aoc-tweets-support-for-striking-gm-workers-admits-economy-is-booming%2F Wait did a Democrat just admit that the economy’s booming and not bordering on recession? https://twitter.com/Patriot_Musket/status/1173643976852697092?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1173643976852697092&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fdougp-3137%2F2019%2F09%2F16%2Fthanks-for-confirming-aoc-tweets-support-for-striking-gm-workers-admits-economy-is-booming%2F So a few points here…I read, “record profits.” Finally agree that the economy is prospering. Also, you’re pushing for a green new deal that I’m really curious what impact it would have on these peoples jobs? I’m sorry, but the hypocrisy runs far with your statement. https://twitter.com/castallcup/status/1173626973630812161?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1173626973630812161&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fdougp-3137%2F2019%2F09%2F16%2Fthanks-for-confirming-aoc-tweets-support-for-striking-gm-workers-admits-economy-is-booming%2F Good job!

REVEALED: Trump’s Approval Rating Tracking Better Than Obama’s At Same Point (Details)

LOL – CLASSIC!

Democrats can continue to shout about how awesome Barack Obama was as president. They are simply lying to themselves but it obviously helps them sleep at night. What’s funny is that for how awful a human being Donald Trump is, his approval rating is looking pretty darn good when placed next to Barry’s. Ain’t that something? From Daily Wire: While President Donald Trump has continued to struggle in many national approval polls, according to the daily tracking poll produced by Rasmussen — one of the most reliable U.S. pollsters — after taking a dip in the polls, Trump’s back up to nearly his highest mark in the last two years — and tracking better than President Barack Obama at the same point in his presidency. Obama would go on to easily win re-election against Republican Mitt Romney, while early head-to-head polls indicate that Trump is going to have a steeper hill to climb. “The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance,” Rasmussen reports. “Forty-nine percent (49%) disapprove.” While Trump is +1 on overall approval, he’s still behind among those who feel “strongly” one way or the other. “The latest figures include 35% who Strongly Approve of the job Trump is doing and 41% who Strongly Disapprove,” Rasmussen notes. “This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -6.” Trump sent the following tweet: Thank you, working hard! #KAG2020 https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1173677124076613632?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1173677124076613632&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F51844%2Ftrump-approval-climbs-tracks-better-obama-same-james-barrett There’s definitely something wrong with the 2020 Democrat “frontrunner” at this point. The guy is just not in control. He can’t remember the simplest details and he’s even starting to make stories up out of thin air. Heck, even David Axelrod called him out for being such a goof. But to not recall who was president before…
