Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez released her “Green New Deal” but her absurd “plan” suddenly disappeared from her website after taking a huge wave of mass mockery.
Translation: We released something so stupid that now we have to pretend it was a joke.
The sheer number of people convinced he ‘owned’ Carlson is actually frightening.
Watch what happens when Tucker Carlson steps out of the conservative bubble and brings on an @AOC policy adviser who debunks all the conservative media lies straight to his face (spoiler: it doesn’t go great for Tucker) pic.twitter.com/joDNXBBB7G

This really is Stalinesque, if you take it down, we can pretend it never happened…
Alternate route to be crystal clear on the source URL:
1. Google “Economic security to all who are unable or unwilling to work”
2. Select cached version of “Green New Deal FAQ | Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez”
3. Marvel at Tucker’s credulity.
Pure gaslighting. pic.twitter.com/enUm2L44mN

Now they’re trying to claim she never said that? Yikes.
Andrew Lawrence from Media Matters flagged this clip from Tucker Carlson’s show Friday night that featured an interview with Robert Hockett, a policy adviser for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Lawrence says Hockett “debunks all the conservative media lies straight to [Carlson’s] face,” but what actually happened is that it was Hockett who lied to Carlson.
The clip starts off with Carlson asking about the section from the FAQ released by Ocasio-Cortez on the Green New Deal that guarantees “Economic security to all who are unable or unwilling to work.” Here’s a screenshot of the now-deleted page from her website.
But Hockett told Carlson “AOC has never said anything like that” and this FAQ was really a doctored document “that someone other than us has been circulating.” Then he falsely claimed that Ocasio-Cortez had tweeted out the doctored FAQ to “laugh at it.” More
It really galls me when these people sit there and lie straight to your face while looking at you with that haughty air of superiority. But to liberals, lying is the moral thing to do if it serves their end purpose.
Are AOC’s 15 minutes up yet?
