Texas Republican Senator John Cornyn sent a tweet quoting former Italian dictator Benito Mussolini.
Freshman Democrat Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) took umbrage.
The worst part is that AOC didn’t understand the message sent by Cornyn – in any way whatsoever – but decided to respond anyway.
From The Daily Wire:
On Sunday, Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) mocked the creators of the Green New Deal, among them Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), by likening her and her cohorts ideas to the dreams of fascist dictator Benito Mussolini. Ocasio-Cortez missed the joke, however, in the process displaying once again that she’s not the most sophisticated thinker in the continental United States.
“We were the first to assert that the more complicated the forms assumed by civilization, the more restricted the freedom of the individual must become.” Benito Mussolini
In case you missed it, while the GOP is calling paying a living wage “socialism,” a Republican Senator full-on quoted National Fascist Party leader and Hitler ally Benito Mussolini like it’s a Hallmark card.
When it comes to telling the truth, Ocasio-Cortez seems to have a difficult time.
The same could be said about her knowledge of economics after the self-described Dem Socialist single-handedly cost her state 25,000 jobs.
Riley Roberts is AOC’s boyfriend. He has an official government email address but Alexandria’s team loudly stated that Roberts is not being paid, nor is he a member of her staff.
From Daily Mail:
Her chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti also argued the move was normal for a spouse or partner.
He wrote: ‘He’s not paid. We have no volunteers in the office. He’s not doing any government work. He can see her calendar just like spouses/partners/family members in other congressional office.
‘Spouses and partners normally get http://mail.house.gov e-mail addresses for the purpose of getting calendar access.’
And spokesperson for the Office of the Chief Administrative Officer, David O’Boyle, told Fox News: ‘From time to time, at the request of members, spouses and partners are provided House email accounts for the purposes of viewing the member’s calendar.’
Here’s the funny part, though.
Roberts is listed in AOC’s staff directory (as you can see in the tweet below)…
Turning Point USA’s Charlie Kirk seems to think AOC may have committed a “major ethics violation”…
