Ocasio-Cortez Becomes Unhinged, Rants About “Morality”

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) who recently appeared on CBS’s “60 Minutes” with Anderson Cooper, made light of concerns regarding her lack of knowledge on many facts. Ocasio-Cortez insisted it was not a big deal. 

The congresswoman insisted to viewers that people were “more concerned” about being factually correct and less about “being morally right,” arguing “they are missing the forest for the trees.”

“One of the criticisms of you is that your math is fuzzy. The Washington Post recently awarded with you four Pinocchios for misstating some statistics about Pentagon spending.” Cooper stated.

Ocasio-Cortez shot back, “If people really want to blow up one figure here or one word there, I would argue they are missing the forest for the trees. I think there’s a lot of people more concerned about being precisely, factually and semantically correct than about being morally right.”

“But being factually correct is important,” Cooper stressed. 

“It’s absolutely important,” she stated. “And whenever I make a mistake, I say ‘OK, this was clumsy.’ And then I restate what my point was. But it’s not the same thing as the president lying about immigrants.”

Do you agree with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s assumption that the importance of being factually correct is supposed to be held to the same standards as morality?

    AOC is intelligent, but her intelligence is very misguided. Of course disseminating accurate information is important. One cannot just state as fact what one feels or wants to be true. She needs to educate herself in her topics of discussion along with accurate stats she addresses. She frequently comes off as being very unknowledgeable and ignorant. And saying,” Okay, this was clumsy,” is not pass to her lack of knowledge. I look at her when she comes out with some dumb statements and say “Whaaat?: I can’t believe that she has two degrees.

      She is a complete idiot and dumber than a tree, as are the people that elected her. I doubt she can wipe her own a!! without someone guiding her. And those are the facts.

    One has to wonder about most of what she says. She is shall we say apperently very short on imformation regarding fact, history, math and reality. If Morality is so important to her you also wonder about her attachment either to socialism and the current democratic party. Their stand on many issues is certainly not indigenous to morality in any way. Her apparent knowledge of history or more current events isn’t very obvious either. Example of history knowledge: John Kennedy freed the slaves. Current and historical events unaware of what the difficulties with socialism both past and those presently happening. The need for a border wall to attempt to control illegal immigration shows her lack of knowedge of actually written immigration numbers set by the Government and that with her being the “Boss” .

    AOC is Not intelligent. Everytime she opens her mouth, stupidity comes out
    Her ideas are dumb. She’s trying too hard to be noticed
    She’s noticed alright, for the idiot comments she makes.
    Please go back to bartending where you can talk to your drunk pals. They’ll agree with anything you have to say.
    They won’t remember in the morning.

    The only thing missing about AOC is that she’s not a blonde!

    The statement made that facts are not important exemplifies her ignorance. That’s what folks do when they are fact checked and proven that the statement was not factual. It’s an attemp to deflect her ignorance and trying to fault the people calling her on it. Hypocrisy is epitomized when she falsifies the facts to suit her message. One of intelligence sees this charade.

    AOC: You are so childish. How did you get your degrees. It appears you got them on the lay-away plan. How many student loans do you have? It would be nice if you would grow up. You were given two ears & one mouth for a reason-to listen twice as much as you talk.

    AOC has no morals. she committed campaign finance fraud and she siphoned money off her campaign to give her boyfriend, She lies continuously. She is an open racist and believes only Hispanics are important. I hope they end up putting that immoral, lying sleazy ball in jail.
