Ocasio Cortez Involved in “Close Door Fight” on Capitol Hill

Cortez and controversy are a match made in progressive heaven, apparently.

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez

With the class of the 2018 midterms set to descend upon Capitol Hill in earnest in the coming weeks, there are a few notable new faces set to grace the Beltway.

Of course, one of the most prominent of the new wave of congresswomen is Alexandria Ocasio Cortez – a young democratic socialist from New York City, who has been a controversial figure like no other during the midterm elections.

Now that Cortez has finally made it to Washington, (after a silly mishap with finding an apartment to rent in DC), it seems as though her reputation for combative absurdity has come along for the ride.

Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was reportedly involved in a “closed-door fight” on Thursday with Rep. Frank Pallone (D-NJ), a top Democratic official, demanding that the party move even further left on climate change and create a special panel for the issue.

“New Jersey Rep. Frank Pallone, incoming chairman of the powerful Energy and Commerce Committee — backed by a number of other committee members — slammed the creation of the new climate panel,” Politico reported. “Pallone argued that his committee and other existing panels within the House could take on the issue aggressively.”

Cortez has long been a stanch believer in man made climate change, using her Twitter soapbox to make alarming suggestions that we could have less than a decade until “cataclysm” occurs.

When pressed on the subject, Cortez has learned a thing or two from her fellow democrats, and is simply denying that the fight occurred at all.

Regarding the fight that broke out, a spokesperson for Ocasio-Cortez told Politico, “We’re not going to comment on the internal discussions of a meeting.”

Immediately following the statement from her spokesperson, Ocasio-Cortez tweeted: “This is completely false – I never even have a direct interaction with him today. When did Politico turn into TMZ?”

Cortez was famous on the campaign trail for her off-the-rails rhetoric and bizarre insinuations…many of which lead to moments of sheer bewilderment for political observers.

Melania Trump Addresses America In COVID-19 PSA Brandishing Face Mask

Published

on

First Lady Melania Trump has made a public service announcement video concerning the coronavirus, featuring her wearing a face mask, urging other folks across the country to do the same when they leave their homes and head out into public. The suggestion of wearing a face mask comes directly from recommendations created by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention that say, “that people wear cloth face coverings in public settings where social distancing measures can be difficult to maintain,” Trump said. “Remember, this does not replace the importance of social distancing. It is another recommended guideline to keep us all safe.” The first lady didn’t wear the mask in the video, but with the photograph that accompanied the PSA she had one on. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: https://twitter.com/FLOTUS/status/1248249626949562368 https://twitter.com/FLOTUS/status/1248277174072860672 “I ask that everyone take social distancing & wearing a mask/face covering seriously,” she tweeted Friday and Sunday. Her Friday tweet was posted minutes after President Trump announced the new recommendation to wear nonmedical, cloth face coverings, reversing his administration’s previous guidance that they were unnecessary for people who were not sick. President Trump, however, has said he’s probably not going to abide by these recommendations, noting that he would probably look foolish attempting to speak with world leaders while wearing a mask. “Somehow, sitting in the Oval Office, sitting behind that beautiful Resolute Desk, the great Resolute Desk, I think wearing a face mask as I greet presidents, prime ministers, dictators, kings, queens, I don’t know, I just don’t see it for myself,” Trump said. The president said that the guidance is completely voluntary and went on to communicate that if he really thought it was important to wear the masks, he would.

Joy Behar Not Retiring From ‘The View,’ Says She Provides ‘Employment For Right-Wing Media’

Published

on

Joy Behar, the cantankerous co-host of majority left-wing show, “The View,” has shot down rumors that she’s about to retire from the show, announcing on the air that she was planning on sticking around for a little bit longer. I know, I know. I’m always the bearer of bad news. Sorry to dash your hopes, y’all. Behar spoke about the rumors on Thursday’s program saying, “They’re always talking about my leaving the show, but I’m not, I’m not leaving the show — let me say the rumors of my retirement have been greatly exaggerated. Here’s the thing: What am I going to do? This pandemic has changed the game.” She went on to add: “Let’s not forget that I provide employment for right-wing media. I mean, I am a job creator over at Breitbart. Everything I say appears on Breitbart. I don’t see, you know, how I could leave.” Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: Behar was forced to dispel the rumors after Variety ran a piece on Wednesday, which quoted the host saying she may be ready to move on from the show. “I have a three-year contract,” Behar said in the interview, which will appear in the book Ladies Who Punch: The Explosive Inside Story of ‘The View’ by Variety’s Ramin Setoodeh. “But that doesn’t mean I can’t leave if I want to, because they can’t really do anything to me at this point. I don’t see myself staying for more [time]. That’s it! I could be wrong. If I’m as fabulous in [2022] as I am now, I’ll think about,” she continued. “But the chances of that happening … you know, time marches on. I’m not a kid.” And here we thought there might be some sort of chance to get rid of her and…
