Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez left millions of Americans scratching their heads on social media this week; bizarrely comparing a person’s maternity leave with the amount of time puppies spend with their mothers.
“Do we know how long puppies are allowed to stay with their mothers after a dog has given birth? Eight weeks,” asserted Ocasio-Cortez.
“So, the market has decided that women and people who give birth deserve less time with children than a dog. That, at its core, has showed that the market has failed to treat people with dignity,” she added.

Rep. Cortez is referring to certain laws that prevent puppies being removed from their mothers too early for their health and development. She fails to mention the dogs are then forcefully taken and sold.

“I am told this is a garbage disposal. I’ve never seen a garbage disposal, I’ve never had one in any place I’ve ever lived. It is terrifying, I don’t know what to use it for, or what its purpose is. Like, food scraps? Is this environmentally sound? I don’t know,” said Ocasio-Cortez.

NOT A DRILL: AOC Supports Strike Against Uber and Lyft… To ‘Help the Drivers Feed Their Families’
Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called for a “day of action” against Uber and Lyft Wednesday; strangely saying the strike can “help all the drivers you’ve met get paid more to feed their families.”
“Labor, labor – read all about it! Your Direct Action for today: Don’t take an Uber or Lyft just for the day. (Just today! Cabs are fine! You can do it!) It’s a small but big way you can help all the drivers you’ve met get paid more to feed their families + support themselves,” posted Ocasio-Cortez on social media.
