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.

Did that end up working out well?

As of December 10, 2019, Barack Obama has yet to endorse his former Vice President, Joe Biden, for POTUS. The two worked together to bring America down for nearly a full decade, but, still, Joe can’t get no love. What more do Democrats need to know about Biden? Are there any gaffes, racial or just plain ignorant, that he has yet to make? Has he ever done anything to benefit the United States during his decades in public service? Come on, people. When is enough enough? Get over the hatred of Trump so America can finally move forward. WATCH: Woah.

Perfect timing…

Steve Harvey most likely severely ticked off every liberal in America the other day. Funny enough, he didn’t even say a single word. All he had to do was roll his eyes. The timing was perfect. From Breitbart: In a clip shared widely on social media, Harvey is seen asking Miss South Africa, the competition’s winner, Zozibini Tunzi what future generations can do to “protect future generations from climate change.” WATCH: Steve Harvey with an all-time eye roll after asking the climate change question #MissUniverse2019 https://twitter.com/pdglenn/status/1203864941477924864?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1203864941477924864&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fentertainment%2F2019%2F12%2F09%2Fsteve-harvey-rolls-his-eyes-after-reading-climate-change-question-at-miss-universe-pageant%2F The 62-year-old comedian, who is a devout Christian, has never played by the rules demanded by the progressive left.
