Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on the widespread criticism of her Green New Deal: “I’m like, you try. … Until you do it, I’m the boss! How about that?!”
Ocasio-Cortez made the comment at a “Girls Who Code” event in the Queens borough of New York City.
Spoken like someone who has never been a boss. Just when you think she couldn’t get anymore cringeworthy…
“So people are like, ‘Oh it’s unrealistic. Oh, it’s vague. Oh, it doesn’t address this little minute thing,'” she added. “And I’m like, ‘You try. You do it. Cuz you’re not. Cuz you’re not. So, until you do it, I’m the boss.’ How about that?'”
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) ripped into critics of her radical Green New Deal proposal in an interview Friday, declaring “I’m the boss” since she was at least trying to solve a problem.
Earlier this month, Ocasio-Cortez rolled out the resolution that proposed a total overhaul of the U.S. economy and energy sectors over the next 10 years, coupled with progressive policies unrelated to addressing climate change. Critics, some of them on the left, derided it as far to expensive and impractical; kinder observers called it “aspirational.”
In an interview with Reshma Saujani of “Girls Who Code,” Ocasio-Cortez spoke of the doubters she had when she took on Rep. Joe Crowley (D., N.Y.) in her stunning Democratic primary upset last year and how she dismisses skeptics now.
“You know what? I don’t care anymore. I don’t care anymore, because again, I’m at least trying, and they’re not,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “So the power is in the person who’s trying, regardless of the success. If you’re trying, you’ve got all the power. You’re driving the agenda. You’re doing all this stuff.”
The ‘Public servant’ thinks she’s in charge of everyone now. She’s not in charge of anything because she’s an under-qualified and overpaid public servant whose only accomplishment so far is flushing 25,000 jobs down the drain for her constituents.
AOC: 2 + 2 = 🌈
EVERYONE ELSE: Nah

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez can’t take criticism without responding… so the Right should keep doubling down on criticizing her because she will completely lose it.
