Lipstick Worn by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez During Debate Sells Out

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic socialist who won a primary in NY last week, clapped back against a conservative host who tried to smear her on Twitter by sharing a picture of her childhood home. "I didn't go to Brown or the Ivy League".

The candidate, whose platform included single-payer health care, a federal jobs guarantee and abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said she wasn't attempting to push her views on other Democrats.

"I believe that in a modern, moral, and wealthy society, no person in America should be too poor to live", she explained. I completely disagree with her solutions, but she is listening to her community.

A second tweet called out Cardillo's cheap shot directly: "Your attempt to strip me of my family, my story, my home, and my identity is exemplary of how scared you are of the power of all four of those things".

But one waitress has a bad memory of working with Ocasio-Cortez, 28, as Ocasio-Cortez tended bar during the very busy Cinco de Mayo celebration in 2017. "I was born in a place where your Zip code determines your destiny".

"Much of her life was defined by the 40 minute commute between school and her family in the Bronx".

Last week, Ocasio-Cortez won the Democratic primary in New York's 14th congressional district. The family almost lost it after Ocasio-Cortez's father died of cancer during the Great Recession. Breitbart's Josh Caplan is out with a "fact check" on the Democratic Socialist's background - only to find she grew up in one of the richest counties in the United States.
