GOPer Calls Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ‘This Girl... Or Whatever She Is’

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, 28, is a self-described Democratic Socialist and successfully received the Democratic nomination for the House seat representing the Bronx and Queens boroughs in New York City.

Stuckey's video, which she posted to her Twitter page labelled as an "enlightening" and "hard-hitting" interview, purported to show Ocasio-Cortez lost for words, confused and unable to coherently articulate her political beliefs. That's more than a quarter of all itemized donations she received in June and about 71 percent of the roughly $99,400 in itemized donations she collected in the days after her victory over Crowley.

Khanna called Ocasio-Cortez "a bold champion for progressive values" and said he looks forward to working with her in Congress.

"And that was reflected in the donors", Trent said.

During Wednesday's television interview, DeSantis, whose candidacy has been endorsed by President Trump, expressed bewilderment that he had come under fire for calling Ocasio-Cortez "this girl".

The EAOC did not immediately respond to an email request for comment from Reuters, which was unable to trace its telephone number. Clothing retailer Zara was also forced to change its website for breaching China's standards on referring to Taiwan.


While satire, from Swift to Colbert, is always aimed at an audience that is in on the joke - and Stuckey insisted that her fans were so familiar with Ocasio-Cortez's somewhat halting appearance on PBS that the gag would be obvious - there was ample evidence on social networks that many viewers less engrossed in political news had assumed the video was fact, not fiction.

I am a Puerto Rican woman.

DeSantis and his campaign said his comments have very little to do with identity and are more a critique of Ocasio-Cortez' socialist views. "We understand socialism doesn't work". It's odd you don't know what that is, given that ~75,000 Puerto Ricans have relocated to Florida in the 10 mos since María.

"I'm sure these new FL voters appreciate your comments!" she wrote. One commenter said he had reported it to Facebook as "fake news".

He said Ocasio-Cortez may be able to win in New York's 14th congressional district with a socialist agenda, but those "failed policies" are not what a majority of Americans want.
