Democratic Socialist Ocasio-Cortez Taking Time Off For ‘Self-Care’ Before She Even Starts

Ocasio-Cortez hasn’t yet started her new job and she already needs a break…

She’s taking time a week off for “self-care” after feeling burned out and lamented that her political activity changed her lifestyle. 

“I am starting a week of self-care where I am taking the week off and taking care of me. I don’t know how to do that though, so I would appreciate any and all self-care tips,” she said in an Instagram video.

“Before the campaign, I used to practice yoga 3-4x/week, eat nutritiously, read and write for leisure. As soon as everything kicked up, that all went out the window. I went from doing yoga and making wild rice and salmon dinners to eating fast food for dinner and falling asleep in my jeans and makeup.” — Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

New York Rep.-elect Ocasio-Cortez lamented doing less yoga — and eating more fast food and falling asleep with her makeup on — due to her new duties as a soon-to-be congresswoman on her social media Tuesday.

“I am starting a week of self-care where I am taking the week off and taking care of me. I don’t know how to do that, though, so I would appreciate any and all self-care tips,” she reported to her fan base in an Instagram video.

The self-proclaimed Democratic-Socialist has been a mainstay of political news ever since she defeated long-time Democratic Rep. Joe Crowley in the primary. Since then, she’s kept social media humming with her unorthodox opinions and political gaffes.

She suggested sending “caseworkers” to the border instead of soldiers and has famously misquoted the Constitution. But Ocasio-Cortez says her lifestyle has really suffered in the process. More

In other words: She needs a break from a job she hasn’t even started yet! She’s retreating to a safe space because life is, like, hard and stuff. This is what happens when everyone gets a trophy.

We are going to see more and more of this as millennials move into government and corporate positions. They are the laziest spoiled bunch on the planet.

Poor thing! I’ve been working pretty much non-stop since I was a child because I lived on a farm plus worked in my dad’s pet store…
