Ocasio-Cortez Not Happy Trump Called Her AOC During Debate; Says It’s Sexist

Published

on

During the last presidential debate held on Thursday night, President Donald Trump referred to everyone’s least favorite Democratic Socialist, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, by her initials, “AOC,” which pretty much everyone calls her by.

However, it appears this did not settle well with her. In fact, she considered it to be sexist and demands that the president call her “congresswoman.”

Here’s more from The Daily Wire:

“I wonder if Republicans understand how much they advertise their disrespect of women in debates when they consistently call women members of Congress by nicknames or first names while using titles & last names when referring to men of = stature. Women notice. It conveys a lot,” she tweeted.

“AOC is a name given to me by community & the people. Y’all can call me AOC. Government colleagues referring to each other in a public or professional context (aka who don’t know me like that) should refer to their peers as ‘Congresswoman,’ ‘Representative,’ etc. Basic respect 101,” she continued.

The responses to AOC’s tweet were varied, with a lot of conservatives pointing out that there’s a big difference between nicknames and the use of a person’s initials. Many went on to note that President Trump often refers to men with more personal names, for example, referring to Joe Biden as simply, “Joe.”

And, as you might expect, progressives eager to be white knights showed up to defend her from the big, bad orange man.

“AOC is not a nickname, they’re your initials. JFK is also not a nickname. The FBI, again, is not a nickname. You can maybe say that Trump should’ve still used your official title, but Obama was also referenced sans title, and you don’t see him whining about it on Twitter…” said Lauren Chen in a tweet.

“As a fellow three-namer. Its just easier to say. You’re not special. Calm down,” posted Chad Felix Greene.

“He called Joe Biden ‘Joe.’ Get over yourself,” Daily Wire contributor Michael Knowles tweeted.

“Studies have found that people are more than twice as likely to call male professionals by their last name, compared with female professionals, who are often called by their first name. This bias is so strong that people do this even when they refer to fictional men and women,” posted writer Simon Hedlin.

“Besides being a sign of respect, why does it matter that women also be called by their last name? Because research shows that it has an impact on professional outcomes. For example, people are more likely to think that someone who is called by their last name deserves an award,” he continued.

“This man noticed too. It’s a defense mechanism. He’s intimidated by women who are smarter than he is, aka women. You’re way smarter than he is, so he has to use insulting modifiers to comfort himself,” another user tweeted.

At the end of the day, this is much ado about nothing. AOC is just looking for some way to become a victim and to trash the president so that she can earn some cool, hip relevant points with the Democratic Party base and hopefully keep her job.

Let’s hope she doesn’t.

Israeli Prime Minister Has Historic Meeting With Saudi Prince In Saudi Arabia

In a historic first for both Israel and Saudi Arabia, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman held a meeting in the city of Neom, Saudi Arabia. This is the first time that a publicly acknowledged meeting between a prime minister of the Israeli government and high-level officials of the government of Saudi Arabia has ever taken place. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo attended the historic event, along with Israeli Mossad Chief Yossi Cohen. https://twitter.com/AmichaiStein1/status/1330773342295646210 via The Daily Wire: The meeting is the latest development in the ongoing growth of Arab nations rejecting their previous hostility toward Israel and joining in the effort to counter Iran, which they see as the gravest threat to peace in the Middle East. Those developments were fostered by the Trump administration, which rejected the dangerous Iran nuclear deal embraced by the Obama administration and instead concentrated on bolstering relations between Israel and the surrounding Gulf states. The astonishing rapidity of Arab nations such as the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Sudan all joining the Abraham Accords within three months in 2020 represented a historic shift in the Middle East, nurtured by President Trump. It’s not surprising that Israel and Saudi Arabia would go public with the meeting between Netanyahu and the Saudi prince; they must be worried that a prospective Biden administration would coddle the despotic Iranian regime as the Obama administration did. Of course, all of these great strides toward peace in the Middle East could easily be destroyed if President Trump is not certified to be the winner of the 2020 presidential election. Former Vice President Joe Biden has already made it very clear he will rejoin the Iran nuclear deal, which will no doubt strain our relationship with Israel and many other nations in the region.

Leader For Warp Speed Program Says First Americans Could Receive COVID Vaccine In December

Published

on

Moncef Slaoui, the head of the U.S. coronavirus vaccine program, made an appearance on CNN over the weekend where he said that the first doses of the coronavirus vaccine could be administered to Americans around December 11. “Our plan is to be able to ship vaccines to the immunization sites within 24 hours from the approval, so I expect maybe on day two after approval on the 11th or the 12th of December,” Slaoui said. According to Slaoui, the efforts to get a vaccine ready as quickly as possible and distribute it among Americans is not going to be derailed if there happens to be a change in administration. via Newsmax: “All decisions are made, the train is running. Whether one administration or the other doesn’t, frankly, make a difference,” Slaoui said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” The operation “has been isolated from the administration, from the political environment, and the political context,” said Slaoui, a former head of GlaxoSmithKline’s vaccines operation. Yet information on the program isn’t been shared with the incoming Biden administration, he said, consistent with President Donald Trump’s failure to acknowledge his election loss. “I have been informed that I should not be saying anything that’s confidential to anybody, including, you know, anybody that’s not part of the administration, and therefore, I’ll act according to what the legal requirements are,” Slaoui stated. To summarize, Slaoui is saying that if President Trump’s lawsuits and recounts turn out to prove that Joe Biden really is the rightful president, the change in administration will not result in delays for the vaccine getting out to the people. Hopefully, this vaccine will turn out to be safe and effective, allowing folks to choose how they want to protect themselves and their loved ones from infection in the future.
