I try not to follow any politics at all, let alone those of the US, but I keep stumbling across snippets about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
If you don’t know who she is and are looking for ten minutes of entertainment-
Having read that, she’ll keep bobbing up. Fox news are so afraid of her they’ve mentioned her on 43 days of the last 43 in an amazing 1800 times (not my figures).
For all the vitriol, her opponents (lets just call them “the government”) to make it easy - keep taking aim and shooting themselves in the foot.
My current fave is:
She gives a rousing speech about the Green New Deal and how good it is for workers including coal miners.
She then she accepted GOP Rep Andy Barr’s invite to visit the coal-miners in his Kentucky Appalachian district; (presumably to face them down and find out just what they think)
He, says…“err no, you are no longer invited”.
Turns out he doesn’t actually have any coal mines in his district.
She says “well I’m coming anyway” “Luckily, we still have open borders with Kentucky, we are free to travel there. We hope to visit and have a town hall, listen to concerns of workers in Kentucky.”
Well it keeps my mind off the Aus election!
