WATCH: Ocasio-Cortez Asked to Be Sworn In At Hearing That Does NOT Require Swearing In

Queens. Bronx. Come on, man…

It’s just comical.

AOC literally has no clue how anything works.

Need more proof? Okay, but you asked for it…

The freshman lawmaker, who sits on the Oversight panel, stood at the witness table Thursday and raised her hand to be sworn in for a hearing focused on conditions for migrants families at the United States’s southern border.

In response to a tweet from MSNBC host and liberal commentator Mika Brzezinski questioning why the lawmaker was sworn in — a step taken for witnesses but not usually for members of Congress — Ocasio-Cortez maintained she was asked to make the move.

MSNBC Mika’s tweet:

What is this. Why? @AOC ?

AOC’s response to Mika:

Hey Mika – GOP has alleged that I am lying about the accounts of migrant women at the border, particularly about the fact that they were were told to drink out of a toilet bowl.

Committee staff conferred with me ahead of time about formally requesting to be sworn in.

AOC and her ilk continue to do everything in their power to re-write the greatest single document in the history of any nation.

Check out her latest, via Daily Wire:

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) demanded at a town hall event in the Bronx on Thursday that everybody be given “access” to guaranteed homes before anyone is allowed the “privilege to earn a profit.”

AOC said, “We have to make sure that housing is being legislated as a human right. What does that mean? What it means is that our access and our ability and our guarantee to having a home comes before someone else’s privilege to earn a profit.

She added, “I want to make sure that we connect some dots because when we introduced the Green New Deal we were saying what is a girl from the Bronx doing and talked about environmentalism that doesn’t make any sense, right? Wrong. Because one of the big things that we talked about was that we need to clean our buildings. … When we talk about our right to a clean home, when we talk about retrofitting buildings, what we’re talking about is cleaning our air and cleaning our water because when we talk about what housing as a right means, it doesn’t mean that you have a right to four crumbling walls and a dirty floor.

Ocasio-Cortez didn’t seem happy or sad after learning that a billionaire is going to pay off student debt for the entire 2019 graduating class of Morehouse College.

But conservatives on Twitter let her know what she missed.

Here’s her tweet:

Every Morehouse Class of 2019 student is getting their student debt load paid off by their commencement speaker.

This could be the start of what’s known in Econ as a ‘natural experiment.’ Follow these students & compare their life choices w their peers over the next 10-15 years.

Reactions:

This amazing act of kindness brought to you by a billionaire – and the capitalist system that made his billions possible.

This is how it’s supposed to work – personal and or private charity. It is not the government’s job to pay off debt for college students.

Period the end. 🙂

Good for the students but Robert F. Smith didn’t make his wealth in a #socialist society. He worked at Goldman Sachs, left and built Vista Equity Partners that is worth over $4 billion and manages an estimated $30 billion. That’s called #capitalism.

Sure is nice that a billionaire could pay that as a gift to these students.

Glad no one called them all evil or anything.

People can give things to each other voluntarily? Who knew?

Yay for capitalism!

Save conservative media!

Watch: Boy Pummeled By Black Teens for Wearing Trump 2020 Hat On School Bus [Video]

This kid may just grow up to be the next best fighter in boxing history…

Liberals will remain silent on this story. Privately, they will cheer on the attackers for beating a white boy simply for wearing his pro-Trump hat on the school bus. Thanks, Obama. That’s the problem. Liberals in Congress and the mainstream media refuse to acknowledge anti-Trump attackers because they know such violent humans will be voting Democrat in 2020 and forever on. Pretty sad. Check this out, via New York Times: The boy’s mother on Thursday released a 21-second video of the Nov. 21 attack in Hamilton County, where two girls and three boys are seen relentlessly punching him as other students look on and scream in the background. The boy, identified as Tyler, was assaulted for previously wearing to school a Trump 2020 hat that he bought “with his own money” at a flea market several weeks earlier, his mother said. […] The teen was then “steadily” bullied on the bus, getting “tripped” and verbally abused before the situation culminated in the beatdown that required a trip to the hospital, his mother claimed. WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7QTm5AAZGbA&feature=emb_logo It’s not safe to be a young Trump supporter in school these days. Then again, it’s not really safe to be a Trump supporter outside of school, either. Unfortunately, the media is more concerned on attempting to cover for the likes of Jussie Smollett and Indian activist Nathan Phillips than reporting what truly matters. Case in point: a high schooler was assaulted for wearing his MAGA hat. MSM’s response? Crickets. WATCH: https://twitter.com/RyanAFournier/status/1100462367387910145?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1100462367387910145&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fdailycaller.com%2F2019%2F02%2F26%2Fstudents-maga-apparel-ripped-off%2F How awful is that? People are still, to this day, triggered by a hat, despite the fact that minority unemployment under President Trump is at an all-time low. Where’s the logic? It’s time for journalists to be journalists again and report these types of instances.

Dem Misquotes POTUS In Impeachment Hearing, CNN Agrees With Trump It Was On Purpose

They admitted the truth?

Hold the phone! CNN just reported in favor of President Donald Trump? Either pigs are flying or the sky is falling because something is clearly off, here. But it happened. It actually happened. You’d have to imagine CNN President Jeff Zucker isn’t too pleased, considering he has an agenda to take POTUS down. Aw, shucks. Here’s the deal, via Daily Wire: CNN, which is often hostile in its coverage of President Donald Trump, admitted on Thursday that Trump was “correct” when he said on Thursday that Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee had “purposely misquoted” his July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Here’s what CNN noted: During the debate over impeachment articles, [Democrat] Rep. [Veronica] Escobar, using an analogy to stress the alleged problem in Trump’s phone call with Zelensky, said “I want you to do me a favor though.” This quote replaces the word “us” found in the memo on the call, with the word “me.” Rep. Jackson, when quoting the memo of the call, said that the quote was “I would like you to do a favor though” — removing “us” from the quote. Trump’s response: Dems Veronica Escobar and Jackson Lee purposely misquoted my call. I said I want you to do us (our Country!) a favor, not me a favor. They know that but decided to LIE in order to make a fraudulent point! Very sad. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1205150488280350720?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1205150488280350720&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Ftrump-democrats-purposely-misquoted-me-in-impeachment-hearing-cnn-hes-correct%2F CNN’s Jim Acosta doesn’t seem so interested in being a journalist. It would be as if he’s more into himself and bashing the Trump administration and putting out tell-all books. Because you demanded it, here’s you daily dose of Jim!
