Democrat Socialist Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (I think it just took me 18 minutes to write that mouthful of an introduction) is getting called out by a member of her own party.
Ever heard of Rep. Seth Moulton?
However, he’s a Democrat who isn’t so fond of Alexandria at the moment.
Rep. Seth Moulton (D-Mass.) called Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-N.Y.) tweet defending House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) Speaker campaign as “offensive” during an interview with Boston Public Radio on Friday.
Ocasio-Cortez tweeted earlier in November that challenges to Pelosi becoming Speaker were “coming from her right, in an apparent effort to make the party even more conservative and bent toward corporate interests.”
All the challenges to Leader Pelosi are coming from her right, in an apparent effort to make the party even more conservative and bent toward corporate interests.
Hard pass. So long as Leader Pelosi remains the most progressive candidate for Speaker, she can count on my support. https://t.co/yNVa8IorWY

Check out one of Ocasio-Cortez’s latest gaffes, where she insists sending caseworkers to the border to stop the migrant caravan is a better idea than sending American troops…
From American Mirror:
New York Democratic Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants 5,000 caseworkers sent to the U.S.-Mexico border instead of American troops.
What if instead of sending 5k troops to the border, we had sent 5k caseworkers to review + process visa applications?
In addition to averting moral crisis, it also would‘ve saved enormous amt of resources. But we don’t talk about the financial recklessness of GOP admins, do we?

Migrants from the caravan were hurling rocks at border agents:

Alexandria is apparently looking for attention, sending what was clearly a bold-faced lie on Twitter.
People keep giving me directions to the spouse and intern events instead of the ones for members of Congress 🤦🏽♀️

What’s the problem?
Republican consultant Arthur Schwartz has the answer:

Ocasio-Cortez said that she couldn’t afford to land an apartment in DC until her Congressional paycheck kicked in.
“I have three months without a salary before I’m a member of Congress. So, how do I get an apartment? Those little things are very real.”
She lied then, too.
From Daily Wire:
As Fox News reports, “Records show she has more than enough to plunk down on an apartment in the U.S. capital.” Fox News adds that Ocasio-Cortez “reported having between $15,001 and $50,000 in her checking account as of the end of April 2018, according to a Financial Disclosure Report she submitted to the clerk of the U.S. House of Representatives. The financial disclosure also reveals that she has an investment account valued between $1,001 and $15,000.”
That minimum of $15,000 that Ocasio-Cortez had in the bank is 15 times the amount 57% of average Americans had in their savings, as USA Today reported in May 2018. USA Today stated, “The average American has less than $4,000 in savings, while 57% of U.S. adults have less than $1,000 to their names.”
Like all elected members of Congress, Ocasio-Cortez will earn $174,000 annually.
…In other Ocasio-Cortez-related news…
She knows exactly how to combat “climate change.”
It involves World War II.
Specifically, it involves the blueprint used by the allied forces to defeat the Nazis.
Maybe AOC should check out this report, in which a NASA scientist warns of strange solar activity and record cold.
In an odd twist, Ocasio-Cortez will not endorse a Sanders 2020 White House bid.
From Fox News:
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic socialist congressional candidate who has spent weeks campaigning with fellow socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders, on Thursday refused to endorse his prospective candidacy in the 2020 presidential race.
Our future is a shared responsibility.
This woman putting it all on the line for healthcare, women & LGBT+ rights is @lsarsour.
The far right constantly maligns her w/ false attacks + threats of violence.
Yet here she is, as always, fighting for everything our flag represents. https://t.co/QR4rYnclLt

Here’s an interview with Ocasio-Cortez where she claims capitalism won’t always exist:
AOC needs everyone to know that “people are going to die” if something isn’t done about climate change.
From The Hill:
Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) called on the U.S. to act “urgent[ly]” after a report from the federal government found that climate change is expected to have an enormous impact on the country in the near future.
People are going to die if we don’t start addressing climate change ASAP.
It’s not enough to think it’s “important.” We must make it urgent.
That’s why we need a Select Committee on a Green New Deal, & why fossil fuel-funded officials shouldn’t be writing climate change policy. https://t.co/bn6NloGlaY

Maybe Alexandria didn’t get the message that large outfits often falsify their data to make it seem as if things are worse than they are?
Ugh. It’s going to be a long two years covering this gaffe-prone individual.
