Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is once again in the news. We’d like to say it was for something good but, come on, you know this woman by now.
First, she tried to sell $58 “Tax the Rich” sweatshirts on her website. This is a “socialist” who hates capitalism, trying to use capitalism to get cash. Okay, honey, we believe you.
Who does she thinks has the money to buy 60-dollar sweatshirts? Not broke folks, that’s who.
And now, she’s saying many Republicans don’t know what hard work is.
From Fox News:
“The thing that these conservative Senators don’t seem to understand is that I’ve actually had a physically difficult working-class job without good healthcare most of my adult life.” Ocasio-Cortez wrote. “I bring that work ethic to Congress & to my community. They sit around on leather chairs all day.”
As you can imagine, the responses came in fast and fierce. But the best one came from a conservative waitress.
This is wrong. I was a waitress for 5+ years throughout high school and college. I am a Republican and I cried in walk-in fridges just like you. The difference between us? I don’t expect the gvt to provide for me. I make my own $ and provide for myself.
Kasey Lovett fired back, explaining that she worked just as long and hard as a waitress as AOC did. Perhaps longer.
It was such tough work, that she was forced to cry in the walk-in fridges just to cope. I’m sure plenty of us have been there!
But she goes on to point out that just because she had a hard job, doesn’t mean she wants to depend on the government.
She, like most Americans, wants to work hard and provide for herself.
Ouch, AOC. I doubt you have an answer for that. Especially since, these days, you’re sitting in those nice, leather chairs instead of working on your feet.
Doesn’t AOC realize how hypocritical she sounds? You were a waitress, kid. Now, you’re just as privileged and comfortable as those “evil” Republicans you criticize.
And don’t forget, Republicans aren’t rich white men born into public office. Many of them are hard-working Americans who busted their butts to get a good education before entering politics.
Some of them, like Ted Cruz, have impressive degrees in law and government. And it wasn’t given to him, he worked for it.
What credentials does AOC have? Oh, she used to bartend. Wow.
- AOC criticized Republicans for sitting in “leather chairs” all day.
- A waitress condemned AOC’s comments, saying she wanted to work hard for her money.
- AOC has previously accused Republicans of doing things most politicians do.
