BACKLASH: AOC Under Fire for Wearing ‘Tax the Rich’ Gown to NYC’s Ultra-Elite Met Gala

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.14.21

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez faced a growing backlash on social media Tuesday after wearing a ‘Tax the Rich’ gown at one of New York City’s most elite gatherings hosted by the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Tickets for the gala can cost upwards of $30,000 while many are given to the country’s most influential people in film, fashion, entertainment, sports, and culture.

“The medium is the message,” claimed AOC on Twitter.

 

“Proud to work with @aurorajames as a sustainably focused, Black woman immigrant designer who went from starting her dream @brothervellies at a flea market in Brooklyn to winning the @cfda against all odds- and then work together to kick open the doors at the Met. The Time is now for childcare, healthcare, and climate action for all. Tax the Rich.”

“And before haters get wild flying off the handle, New York elected officials are routinely invited to and attend the Met due to our responsibilities in overseeing and supporting the city’s cultural institutions for the public. I was one of several in attendance in this evening,” she added.

AOC ERUPTS: Ocasio-Cortez Says She’s AGAINST VA Reform, Says Veterans System ‘Ain’t Broke’

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.22.19

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez raised eyebrows across the country last week; confirming she was against reforming the Veterans Affairs system that provides healthcare for America’s service men and women.

“If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” Ocasio-Cortez said at a NYC town hall event. “The idea that this thing that isn’t broken, this thing that provides the highest quality care to our veterans somehow needs to be fixed, optimized, tinkered with until you don’t even recognize it anymore.”

“Here’s the thing, they are trying to fix it, but who are they trying to fix it for is the question we’ve got to ask” she added. “They’re trying to fix the VA for pharmaceutical companies, they’re trying to fix the VA for insurance corporations, and ultimately they’re trying to fix the VA for a for-profit healthcare industry that does not put people or veterans first.”

AOC ERUPTS: Ocasio-Cortez SLAMS Mitch McConnell, Says He ‘Doesn’t Want to Save the Planet’

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.26.19

Embattled Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez unloaded on Sen. Mitch McConnell Tuesday; bizarrely suggesting the GOP leader “doesn’t want to save the planet” and will be “drinking oil in 30 years.”

“What McConnell’s doing is that he’s trying to rush this bill to the floor without a hearing… without working through committee — because he doesn’t want to save our planet. Because he thinks we can drink oil in 30 years when all our water is poisoned,” Ocasio-Cortez reportedly said.

Ocasio-Cortez was referencing McConnell’s recent decision to bring her ‘Green New Deal’ to a full Senate vote Tuesday; saying “I could not be more glad that the American people will have the opportunity to learn precisely where each one of their senators stand on the ‘Green New Deal.’”
